New Drone Footage Shows Damage From Trumpís Wall in Remote Arizona Wildlands
Center for Biological Diversity ^ | April 28, 2020 | Laiken Jordahl

Posted on 04/30/2020 3:53:58 PM PDT by BeauBo

New drone footage shows border-wall construction blasting through a wildlife refuge and mountain range in one of the most remote regions of the United States...

The wall is being built through the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge, home to the endangered Sonoran pronghorn, and the rugged Tinajas Altas Mountains in the Barry M. Goldwater Bombing Range east of Yuma, Arizona...

The construction has forever altered the centuries-old Camino del Diablo, or Devil’s Highway. The ancient trade route, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was traveled by Native Americans, explorers, miners and missionaries like Father Eusebio Kino. Once a forbidding, high-clearance trail, the Camino has been bulldozed and bladed by construction crews into a major thoroughfare...

Wall construction has accelerated across the borderlands despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Hundreds of miles of new construction have been announced in recent months...

Wall construction is ongoing in the neighboring Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and across Arizona.

Looks like they are starting to build barrier up some of the steep mountains in Arizona - much tougher going, than in the flat stretches of desert that separate the mountains, which stand along the Arizona Border in isolated clusters, like islands in the sea.

It’s not Trump’s Wall, it is Our Wall.

The Trump administration waived 41 environmental, cultural-resource protection and public-health laws to speed wall construction. Crews have tapped wells to extract limited groundwater to mix concrete for the wall’s footings.

What, no Redi-Mix locations nearby?

Nothing will ever compare to the damage illegals have done to our inner cities. The illegals turn them into mega-tijauna’s not fit for anyone to live in except 3rd world latinos.

Tinajas Altas Mountains in the Barry M. Goldwater Bombing Range east of Yuma

Apparently they are not concerned with the BOMB damage.

Do they think the drug smugglers don’t use these routes, precisely because they are remote?

Or that the smugglers care about the wildlife and scenery? Or that they aren’t as destructive to the area (leaving behind
a lot of trash) as anyone else?

home to the endangered Sonoran pronghorn,

What?
What is so special about this pronghorn then?
Are they going to bring back the dinosaurs too? At a time when 30 million humans have just lost their jobs, they come up with this sh*t?
What a load of rubbish.

Sort of makes you wonder if they ever read this stuff before they release it, huh?
