The nonprofit National Butterfly Center has asked a federal judge to stop border wall activity on its property as the Trump administration gears up to build new walls and fencing in South Texas.
In a motion filed late Monday, center director Marianna Trevino Wright said heavy machinery has been driving through their property for a week, including a road grader accompanied by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) vehicle. Wright alleged that someone had cut the lock on a center fence and replaced it with a lock belonging to CBP.
CBP has announced it will start this month on the first of 33 miles of new walls and fencing in South Texas' Rio Grande Valley, the southernmost region of Texas. Congress funded construction last year.
The planned construction would eventually cut through the butterfly center, a state park, and a century-old chapel on the bank of the Rio Grande, the river that forms the Texas-Mexico border.
"We will not stand idly by as the bulldozers roll in," Wright said in a statement.

Anyone wanna bet she’s a libtard? And hey, lady-—butterflies can FLY. Says so right in their name. For the good of the country, without which you wouldn’t have a butterfly center, you can move 20’.
F**K infants, save caterpillars....
F**K victims of illegal criminal aliens, save butterflies...
These libtards can go FOAD!!!!
Rachel Corrie candidate?
Start the real fence at the Mexican border. Head north, building real fences and real walls, until they come to the “Butterfly Shelter.”
Stop building the fence, then begin building it again on the other end of the “Shelter”.
That way, all of the illegals, all of their trash and debris, all of their urine and feces and rape trees, all of their dirty clothes and dead bodies and drug trading drops will be on the Butterfly Shelter property. It’s a gate, left open so everybody can walk through in known areas. And be arrested on the Butterfly Shelter’s grounds and roads!
Hyphenated name. Tells me all I need to know.
Her Butterflies do fly, right ?
sounds to me like the Butterfly Center would be a great place for Trump to put up some of those beds for criminal illegal aliens.
the butterfly crowd loves illegal immigration so much, let ‘em enjoy the mob.
She’ll watch as the dozers roll thru the federal 60 foot easement ...
“Oh, the poor butterflies!”
Anyone wanna bet shes a libtard?
I don’t think anyone here is stupid enough to imagine that she’s not.
I mean... she runs a frigging Butterfly Center.
Monarch’s have been documented at 20,000 feet. I’m thinkin’ they can fly over a wall. Get bent lady. Geez. So sick of these wankers.
Hyphenated last names are generally trouble.
A new global manager has been hired in the UK. I’ve got my doubts but photo is disturbing.
Teddy Roosevelt assured 100 years ago that there would be an easement on the border, and access to it.
I once knew of a chap who would pull the wings off butterflies - perhaps we could give him this loon’s address ... I’ll wager he does not make a distinction between butterfly wings and human arms.
I don’t believe the Roosevelt Reservation includes Texas.
I have an easement on the front of my yard for the county or state to maintain utilities or add a sidewalk if they so choose.
I find it hard to believe that there isn’t an easement along the US/Mexico border that wouldn’t stand up to a challenge from any local jurisdiction.
Suck it up, buttercup, er, butterfly.
I love your idea!
Force them through the Butterfly Center and deal with it.
I don’t get the comments here.
Maybe I’m missing something, but nothing was stated in the article.
Why do the FEDs get to violate property rights ?
