GoFundMe campaign promises border tunnels

World

President Trump’s push for a border wall has shut down the government and inspired one man to start a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for construction. That campaign has raised millions.

 That prompted one man from Arcadia, Florida to create his own GoFundMe page to help workers build a tunnel under the wall.

 “It started off basically as a joke,” Rigo Torres says.

 Torres created the page of December 20 and so far it has raised nearly $6,000.

 He was scrolling through social media feeds when he came across the page supporting the wall and wanted to make a joke with his friends. He says he never imagined gaining this much attention.

 “I just thought it was going to stay between friends and you know have a few laughs and that’s it,” Torres says.

 Now, he’s decided to donate the money raised to the American Civil Liberties Union.
