Many people think of the U.S.-Mexico border being located in an empty, lifeless, desert. Nothing could be further from the truth. The desert is home to many animals that migrate from north to south and back again across the border. Far too many of these creatures are listed as endangered. For environmental reasons alone, the Twitler’s border wall should be canceled, in toto.
The Texas Tribune published a story a few weeks ago that is a good summary of the important environmental issues that are in play here. “Scientists say Trump’s border wall would devastate wildlife habitat” is well worth your time to read.
