Harm to Border Irreparable
Brownsville Herald (2020)
  • Sara C Bronin
With a November defeat looming, the Trump administration has accelerated efforts to build the wall on the U.S. southern border. To build it, he has waived over two dozen laws, including laws that protect our environment and our culture. The purpose of legal requirements constraining government action is to ensure the things and places we value are protected from short-sighted politicians. Trump administration waivers will irreversibly destroy biodiversity, culture and heritage.  They could evict families from their homes during a pandemic.  Even in the waning days of this administration, we should be outraged by the damage these waivers are doing each and every time they are used.
