Conservation Groups Call for an Immediate Halt to Construction of Border Fence in San Pedro National Conservation Area
Sean Sullivan of the Sierra Club had this to say about the need for the restraining order:
The government has willingly continued construction of the border fence in the San Pedro National Conservation Area despite having received our appeal on Monday. If we don't ask for this temporary restraining order now, our arguments will never be heard and it will be too late for the San Pedro and the wildlife that rely on it.Chertoff is presumeably fuming, trying to figure out how to get his printer to work are he furiously drafts Real ID waivers.
By the way, it's too late for the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge. You'll have to take our word for it that that wall is a done deal. And absurdly so... you can see the end of the wall on either end of the valley from the port of entry. So, uh, you wouldn't think that maybe folks might sort of, uh, go around it? At $31.5 million, this 7-mile stretch of wall is a monument to short-sighted and irreversible stupidity.
