Arizona Congressman Sues for Environmental Review of Trump's Border Wall
"Citing environmental concerns, an Arizona congressman filed a lawsuit Wednesday to block President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall," reports Andrea Rodés.
Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and the Center for Biological Diversity filed the suit under the auspices of the National Environmental Policy Act, calling "for an in-depth investigation into the wall’s potential impact on the environment."
"Such a review would probably take several years to complete, delaying indefinitely the fulfillment of one of Trump’s signature campaign promises," according to Rodés.
Earlier this week, Planetizen shared a feature by Vox detailing the many potential negative ecological outcomes a border wall could have on huge swaths of land on either side of the border.
