1,000 People Protest Border Wall in Powerful Texas Rally


From an email sent by the Center for Biological Diversity

The Center for Biological Diversity joined about 1,000 people in Texas for a powerful rally against Trump’s border wall. The two-day event featured social-justice and environmental groups marching 4 miles along the Texas-Mexico border. They converged on the town of Mission, where the wall would destroy an important butterfly preserve and cut off the century-old La Lomita Chapel.

We were proud to be part of this inspiring event with our banner reading, “No Walls in the Wild — Rechazamos el Muro.”

Trump’s wall endangers wildlife, habitat, public lands, communities and people. As the Center’s Marta Segura put it, “Sacrificing due process and transparency to build a wall that isn’t even necessary to ‘protect public safety’ is what no one can fathom. This beautiful, peaceful river valley must be preserved as a heritage to our children and grandchildren, not split apart in a symbolic, empty gesture of hatred and division.”
