Hikers fight against Trump border wall plan that could destroy monument



By Associated Press -May 17, 2020 10:00 AM

Engraved in the monument is this warning: 'The destruction or displacement of this monument is a misdemeanor punishable by the United States or Mexico.' Now the government is proposing to commit such a misdemeanor.

Tess Mullaney remembers looking at endless rolling desert hills covered in a thin layer of white snow just as the sun was rising the day she embarked on a 2-month journey on the Arizona Trail, an 800-mile system that starts at the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona and ends at the Arizona border with Utah.

In a picture from that day in February 2019, Mullaney, 28, is smiling as she poses behind the thin barbed-wire fence that divides Arizona from Mexico. She's standing next to Border Monument 102, an engraved pillar marking the boundary of the United States.

Engraved in the monument is this warning: "The destruction or displacement of this monument is a misdemeanor punishable by the United States or Mexico."

Now the government is proposing to commit such a misdemeanor. It plans to build a 30-foot border wall there, threatening the view so many hikers marvel at and the ecological life around it.
