Sierra Club Borderlands Campaign

Logo-green 
The Sierra Club has announced a Borderlands Campaign.  "More than 600 miles of border walls and barriers have been constructed in all four southern border states, with dozens of miles still being constructed or planned. This reckless project has meant dire consequences for vast expanses of pristine wild lands, including wildlife refuges, wilderness areas, and national forests. Help stop the Border Wall and protect communities and wildlife."

At the link above, watch the video of Wild Versus Wall about the environmental effects of the current border policy.  According to the Sierra Club, "U.S. policies along our southern border are proving ineffective, costly, and harmful to people and the environment. Construction of border walls has not curbed migration but has cost taxpayers an average of $4.5 million per mile. More than 600 miles of border walls and barriers have been constructed in all four southern border states, with dozens of miles still being constructed or planned."
