Joe Biden does not just need to stop the building of the horror of the border wall. He needs to ordering the tearing down of every mile of it that Trump has had built, including an ecological reconstruction program for those sensitive areas that his fascists destroyed to Make America White Again.
In March, after construction crews blasted and bulldozed through the remote desert terrain of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, an ecological reserve on the Arizona-Mexico border, Christina Andrews observed the transformation in disbelief.
Dozens of miles of towering border wall ordered by the Trump administration were rising across the rugged landscape in southern Arizona, displacing century-old cacti and cutting off migratory paths for jaguars and wolves. Ancestral lands and sites considered sacred by local Native Americans were also threatened after the administration declined to consult tribal groups as normally required under federal law.
“It felt like someone took a dagger and drove it through my heart,” said Andrews, a chairwoman of the Hia-Ced O’odham, or Sand People, a community living near the national monument that is seeking tribal recognition from the federal government.
But with Democrat Joe Biden’s projected win over President Donald Trump, Andrews and environmental activists and conservationists are pinning their hopes on a new administration’s reversing certain policies, halting construction and going as far as to rip down the new sections of border wall.
Make it happen Joe. These are the priorities that are very important and at the very least demonstrate to Republicans that whatever they do when they are in power, we will undo. And this can be done via executive order.
