Skip to comments.Critics say Border Patrol access bill would ruin environment

WASHINGTON A bill that would grant the Department of Homeland Security unprecedented access to federal lands near the border was sharply criticized Friday for giving the department unchecked authority.
The National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act would let DHS waive 36 environmental-protection laws for patrol activities within 100 miles of U.S. borders.
1505 may succeed in decreasing immigration, but only because the water, air and environments of border communities will be so degraded, no one will want to come here, said Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Tucson.

And a border war won’t?
This man is certifiably NVTZ!
At present, things help his reconquista amigos.
And illegals pooping in the woods won’t?
36 Laws! Who in the Hell passes this crap? Throw these idiots OUT NOW!
Another example of creeping, insidious Federal overreach...why do we have ANY environmental regulations focused on the areas within 100 mile of the US Border?
It’s time to take back the country. Dumping the EPA would be a good start.
This is too stupid for a subtle response so,
Dear Raul, GFYS!
Close that part of the border to illegal traffic and the trashing of the area will be diminished overall.
Imagine that! An Irish conservative running interference for the criminal invaders...
This is not without precedent. Under Bush, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff waived more than 30 environmental laws along the border to be able to proceed with the fence. It caused a huge uproar from San Diego to Brownsville, but, strangely, the world as we know it did not end and there were never any reports of environmental degradation as a result of his actions. El ruco loco de Raul Grijalva raised a big, ridiculously stupid stink when it happened. He opposes, on principle, any attempt to enforce American law except for the environmental-kumbaya stuff.
And wetback crap like this doesn't?
(For multiple pages of similar scenes, search Google Images for "illegal alien trash"...)
Grijalva is one of a handful of reps pushing to create federally-protected lands that create a corridor for free transit from the border to Tucson.
This is totally in character for the traitor.
As opposed to the sh!tholes they are leaving? The man is a lunatic.
Shove whatever NVTZ is up your backside!
That’s just what I was going to say? Who will be more destructive to the environment? Large gangs of Mexicans throwing all their garbage, clothing, and dead bodies all over the place, turning square miles of country into Litter Heaven, or a few well-disciplined Border patrollers?
This is a false argument if there ever, was one.
It looks very much like the work from within side won the argument.
It is no accident that so many 60’s and 70’s radicals are in positions of influence and power - in government at all levels, in the schools, ngo’s, foundations, everywhere.
And we are seeing the fruit of their efforts.
The watermelons don’t seem to be concerned about overpopulation and it’s effect on resources and the environment, either.
I am going to demand my senator introduce matching legislation.
This actually does not go far enough, I would clear-cut EVERYTHING within a mile of the border, five miles would be better.
Take away all cover near the border, make it harder for them to sneak across unseen.
The filth the invaders leave is beyond description, a few tire tracks are NOTHING by comparison.
Dear Raul, GFYS!
....and go to Hell. This is more infuriating crap.
Thanks for the ping, SandRat.
Yup, let’s just make sure we leave it nice, free, and clear for the illegals to use. We should leave them water stations and caviar too. American hikers, campers, hunters must be interrogated, harassed, permitted, and eventually locked out of all the southern public lands.
F*ck you EPA. You are killing our lifestyle. How do you f*cks sleep at night?
What? You're mind is racing with the thought of some lizard or insect being cut off from it's habitat and dying? While humankind is building a viable system to better our existence?
Here's a long known fact for you whiny cry-babies to shed tears over...more species have died over the course of some 4 billion years than life ever existed on this rock.
Why are you not crying about the poor big lizards (dinos)? I'm not, because once that the extinction event happened, mammals grew and evolved after the large predators went dead.
