The Stupid Border Wall is not JUST a waste of money. It threatens our biggest wildlife refuges.

Although Trump has concerns for drug dealers throwing bags over the wall, he hasn’t given any thought to wildlife. Initial construction testing has begun on a section that would split an refuge ecosystem in two. Negative wildlife impact from border fencing has been well-documented, and this unnecessary barrier will harm our wildlife and the environment.  

Script: I calling Congressperson [_____]  to OPPOSE including any border-wall funding in the next budget, and to oppose any legislation that would provide additional funding. Not only is this a waste of money, but it also destroys our national wildlife refuges, as well as the eco-tourism that thrives because of them.

One thought on “The Stupid Border Wall is not JUST a waste of money. It threatens our biggest wildlife refuges.

  1. We do not need a wall! Total wast of money. Feed the hungry & provide health care & education with that money.
    Respect nature! Do not distroy the wetlands. No not disturb the eco system. Please nurture our beautiful land instead on building useless walls. Stop the wall.
