The border wall: useless for stopping criminals and terrorists, great for killing wildlife.

Although Trump has deep concerns for the welfare of people being hit by bags being thrown over the wall by drug dealers, (no, really!) he hasn’t given a second’s thought to our wildlife. Initial soil testing for construction has begun on a section that would split an important 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 for security reasons, but it also destroys our national wildlife refuges, as well as the eco-tourism that thrives because of them.

Oh, and Mexico isn’t paying for the wall…

And where would we be in a discussion about the border wall without a moment with former Mexican President Vicente Fox…
