Ground Has Been Broken On The Wall, Tree Huggers Object

04/10/2018 Source: Town Hall by: Chris Reeves


On Monday, the Trump administration scored a minor victory when it broke ground on construction for 20 miles of improved border wall near Santa Teresa, New Mexico, just a short drive across the Texas state border from El Paso.

The 20-mile segment in question already has a fence, but it is only a vehicle barrier with a waist-high metal beam running across alternating poles that reach up to average human height or slightly higher.

Only 654 miles of the roughly 2,000-mile border has some type of security wall or fencing, and of that, 300 miles of fencing just consists of short vehicle barriers. That means that less than one-fifth of the border has any kind of substantial protection against illegal border-crossers.

But apparently, even Trump’s relatively small efforts to try and improve on this dismal situation are too much for committed leftist activists like those at the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), which has filed multiple lawsuits against the administration for waiving federal laws to speed up construction of the bollard-style wall sections in New Mexico and California.
