WSU College Republicans to build, display another Trump wall

PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State University College Republicans would like to build another wall on campus to demonstrate their support for the president's views on immigration. 

The group built a wall on the steps of Todd Hall back in 2016 when it was run by James Allsup. Allsup stepped down as president of the WSU chapter after he was seen in videos on YouTube participating in the "Unite The Right" rally in Charlottesville.

A GoFundMe was created by the WSUCR's new president Amir Rezamand. The club is looking to raise $2,500 to build another wall, this time 10 feet higher than the wall in 2016.

In 2016 the WSU College Republicans built an 8-foot by 20-foot wall and spray painted Trump's name on it. The wall drew large protests on campus and made national headlines. 

"Two years later and under new management, it's time for the WSUCR to once again take up the mantle and defend the rights of our people, the sovereignty of our country, and the importance of our border," Rezamand wrote on the GoFundMe page. 

The page says the money will go toward building materials, security personnel, permits and other fees that may come from WSU. The page says this wall will "own the libs mercilessly."

As of publication, the GoFundMe had more than $600 raised of its $2,500 goal.
