I love that Kobach is involved, seeing as he's proven that he knows nothing about legal procedure.

You've got me there, zoning laws are definitely more of a republican "thing".

God forbid they require such horribly unreasonable things like "actually get construction permits" and "allow inspectors to check the wall and make sure it isn't going to fall down and kill someone". The latter of which I would assume to be a significantly likely outcome, given the previous level of diligence and care this group of chucklefucks has put into this particular project.

The audacity!

I was trying to find out more about the Mayor as that level of government isn't usually run by Democrats and Republicans (in my experience) - or at least it doesn't matter much in a town of 14k. Anyway, I found this very unbiased article from the Tennessee Star.

I particularly like the scare quotes around "independent" and leading off with the plan for an Amnesty Week. From the article, can you tell what the Amnesty was for? Or even guess?

Sunland Park Mayor Javier Perea – an “independent” who supported Senator Bernie Sanders in 2016 (pictured above) – held a press conference about the border wall Tuesday afternoon.

Perea said the city learned about construction of the wall and tried to access the site last Thursday but were denied entry. He said that the property owner applied for a permit Friday but the documents are incomplete. The construction violates city ordinances, and the matter has been given over to city court, he said.

The mayor also cited safety concerns, saying the wall could block emergency response efforts in that area.

The Sunland Park City Council has been vocally in favor of immigration, both legal and illegal, according to documents on the city government’s website.

The council held a special meeting Tuesday evening to discuss the budget as well as pass a resolution declaring June 3-7 as Amnesty Week.

The council also has advocated the city as the site for a possible port of entry operation. The council commissioned a study for the proposed Camino Real de Tierra Adentro International Port of Entry (POE). The study is available here.

There's a way around it, it just requires one tiny tick mark on the design plans.

Old: The wall shall be 18' high.
New: The wall shall be 18" high.

Zoning problem solved and they can probably afford to buy a few hundred more yards of the stupid thing!

Here's the article:
Kris Kobach, general counsel for We Build the Wall, said in a statement that building, development and rock wall permits had been filed, and that city inspectors had given the project a green light before Memorial Day weekend.
"We were then instructed by the same city officials that we were good to proceed with construction over the holiday weekend and that we would not have any issues being shut down," Kobach said.
City manager: 'We don't selectively enforce the law'
Sunland Park City Manager Julia Brown told CNN the city's "cease and desist" order has nothing to do with politics.
"There is no political motivation on the part of the city, simply our interest in having our code and ordinances complied with," she said.
"This applicant is not being treated any differently from any other applicant in that all applicants are expected to comply with the law. We don't selectively enforce the law, do not show favoritism or ignore our own laws."
I'm pretty sure that's the same Kris Kobach who was on the verge of having his law license suspended and ordered to take remedial legal classes in Kansas.
There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

WE BUILD THE WALL, the crowdfunded, ultra-right group that put up a multimillion-dollar border wall just west of El Paso in southern New Mexico, has said that it only builds on private land. But earlier this month, the group extended its wall onto government land — without asking first for government permission.
