Trump's Ecocide and Genocide: Killing Life at the Border, Killing Children in Death Camps

Trump's Ecocide and Genocide: Killing Life at the Border, Killing Children in Death Camps

The US border wall construction is already destroying habitat, the wild places of animals, birds and pollinators, along the Rio Grande in Texas.
Any day now, construction will begin on the Arizona border, blocking the migration of the Pronghorn Antelope and rupturing life in the fragile Sonoran Desert. The enormous lights and road construction alone will disturb the creatures of the fragile Sonoran Desert.

In Texas, people will loose their homes and farms, and the US will seize access to the water of the Rio Grande. The US will create a no-mans land, a corridor, which the US politicians can use for their corporate friends.
These small, expensive stretches of border wall will not stop immigration. It will push migrants to more deadly zones.
"The government has already demolished refuge land in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and construction is set to begin any day. On one section of the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge, crews have used heavy construction equipment to destroy a mix of trees, including mesquite, mulberry and hackberry. Those trees protect birds during the ongoing nesting season," AP reports.
Like the death camps where Trump is caging and torturing  children to death, and the theft of migrant children for adoption and trafficking, the border wall is an act of genocide and ecocide, and the outcry should be heard around the world.
At least six children have died in Trump's death camps and cages for migrant children, and many more have been raped and sexually abused.
