Arizona -- Big ugly Apartheid border wall destroys habitat of endangered species, violates all laws

Daily borderlands update: 37 panels of Trump wall now installed at Organ Pipe National Monument — a place so special Congress designated it wilderness. This wall will sever our protected public lands from habitat across the border and push endangered species closer to extinction.


Breaking News: Trump transferring ownership of 500 acres of public land in Arizona to U.S. Army:

There has been a lot of confusion in the media and on FB about which sections of the wall are being built and which sections are on hold. Please note: Wall construction is moving ahead on the south border of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument (an International Biosphere Reserve) as this recent photo shows. It is big and it is ugly in every way possible. Please call your Representatives and ask that they stop wall construction immediately before any more irreparable damage is done. -- Arizona border resident
