'Border wall is preposterous cover to seize land for oil and gas companies'

MISSION, Texas -- "The Border Wall is nothing more than a preposterous cover for the oil and gas companies to put in pipelines between the Rio Grande River and our canal system, and poison our only fresh water source," said Marianna Wright, director of the National Butterfly Center in Mission, Texas.

Marianna discovered U.S. government contractors here on private land in 2017, more than 9 months before Congress began authorizing any appropriations.
The National Butterfly Center filed suit and was warned that armed guards and eminent domain, the seizure of private land, would follow.
It was the "rape of the land" for corporations protected by the US government.

"Our Native plants are the host plants for butterflies," she says of the habitat here for butterflies, and the caterpillars which sustain the migratory birds.
The habitat in this corridor is quickly being destroyed by construction of the border wall, including light pollution, affecting the bees, animals and even the plants.

"The border wall is not about national security. It is being built over two miles inland in many spots."
The border wall will not stop people, drugs or weapons from entering this country.

"It is only going to create a hurdle for the truly desperate."
They will sit behind the border wall and get picked up by Border Patrol and be put in private, for profit prisons, she told Govinda Dalton today.

"This whole scheme is the theft of taxpayers."

1. tRump must be

promised a huge "bonus" for getting this farce built. Certainly, he has lots of help from his friends in the gop and the business world. We are being conned - again by this life long con man. He does nothing unless there is something in it for himself.

Money, money, money. For him and his buddies. That's all he truly cares about.
