Jack Murphy wants House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to know that millions of patriots want Congress to stop obstructing President Donald Trump and start funding the much-needed wall across the southern border. But instead of simply writing another blog arguing for the creation of the wall, Murphy decided to make a statement in a way that Pelosi could not ignore.
“We wanted a fun and creative way to tell the Democrats that we’re serious about the wall,” Murphy said. “And what better way to send Pelosi a message than with thousands of bricks at her front door?”
Murphy’s I Love My Freedom website has indeed encouraged thousands of supporters to purchase and send bricks to Pelosi’s California and Washington, D.C. offices in the hopes that she will get the picture.
Each brick is sent with an identical message of support for Trump’s border wall:
Dear Nancy Pelosi,
Every brick you receive was ordered specifically for you by the American people.
Many of them even left a friendly message for you. As you’ll see below, we’ve included them.
We hope you’ll take some time and think about the way you’re treating the safety of the American people.
All 7,982 bricks that we’re sending you have been ordered by Americans across the country in less than nine days.
You’ll be receiving weekly shipment of bricks to your Washington, D.C., and San Francisco office until you take care of your duty.
We thank you for your open mind and willingness to do what the American people have asked.
BUILD THE WALL AND PROTECT OUR COUNTRY!

You’ve gotta love it.
President Trump has decided he’s not getting anything of substance out of Congress, and he’s using a national emergency declaration to free up military funds that can be used to build the wall. Whether or not this gambit is successful remains to be seen. What is certain, however, is that millions of Americans see nothing “racist” or “immoral” about shoring up our border security, and nothing does that like a big, fat concrete wall.
Wayne Dupree collected a number of personal messages from brick-senders who wanted to make sure Pelosi heard their message:
From Diane C. in Florida: “Build the wall or take the wall around your house down and give up your security because you’re against guns.”
From Paul K. in Florida: “Make a wall in your office to keep illegals out. Walls are necessary.”
From Robyn W. in Maryland: “BUILD THE WALL. PROTECT LEGAL AMERICANS, NOT ILLEGAL CRIMINALS!”
From Mary R. in Georgia: “Build the wall — then pass immigration reform to eliminate birthright citizenship, eliminate chain immigration, and change lottery immigration to merit-based immigration. A must to save our country.”
From Robert H. in Illinois: “Do the job you swore an oath to and protect the Constitution of the United States of AMERICA!”
It’s unlikely that any of this will change Pelosi’s mind, we suppose, but you know, sometimes it just feels good to vent. If she isn’t going to protect our borders, she should at least understand that millions of Americans take exception to that position. A continuous delivery of bricks to her doorstep ought to do the trick quite nicely.
