A gigantic yellow earth mover arrived on National Butterfly Center land Sunday afternoon, the first sign of the beginnings of border wall construction in that protected habitat.
The steel-and-concrete levee wall is expected to slice through the center, placing 70 of the sanctuarys 100 acres of land south of it
Ok. Read the article. A wall and all construction will cut through a 100 acre place meant to house and protect butterflies. The total purpose of this acreage is to help butterflies therefore help plant life, e therefore help ecosystems.The National Park will be reduced by 2/3 on the US side. THAT'S what were taking about here.
So what....I'll bet that group wasn't 125,000 strong. If that's all you got then you need to try again. BTW...they are now warned and I'll bet they won't do it again. All you democrats do is complain but never come up with a solution.
You never answered about why Pelosi, Schumer and Obama wanted a wall before. Were they wrong???
The overall trend along the southern border has broadly been one of declining apprehensions, regardless of fencing or barriers in various sectors. The only section that saw a net increase in border apprehensions over the 2000-2017 time period was the Rio Grande Valley, which was also the only sector where physical barriers have been expanded that the RNC conveniently omitted from their fact. In total, border apprehensions across all sectors dropped 81% from 2000-2017
Funny how you stopped at 2017. So what you are saying is that all the border workers are wrong and you are right. It must be all the experience you have working at the border. Even Obama's Border Chief said that walls work but what does he know? He only worked there for 30+ years.
A recent report found that the Eastern population of the monarch butterflies in North America is still suffering from long-term population decline. If the trend continues, the iconic monarch butterflies could face an 11 to 57 percent chance of going quasi-extinct in the next two decades.
Butterflies and moths have been living on Earth for at least 50 million years. Their highly diverse group consists of more than 250,000 species. For centuries, butterflies have been used as "model organisms" for the investigation of various areas in biological research such as genetics, evolution, embryology, navigation, pest control, biodiversity conservation and population dynamics.
The long-standing and popularity of butterfly research has provided invaluable data that remains unmatched in terms of time and geographical scale worldwide. This collection of studies proves valuable to climate change research.
In recent years, mass populations of insect pollinators such as butterflies and bees have faced near-extinction events. These pollinators are extremely important in the world's food source. Without them, people will not enjoy chocolates, apples, coffee and other foods that have become vital in our daily existence.
Nearly 75 percent of the food crops worldwide depend on these pollinators, therefore, their existence and health affect the food production. Experts also said that in the past 50 years, agriculture's dependence on pollination increased by 300 percent.
Not ALL the Âborder workersÂ support your position
Please name one border worker who is against the wall. I named one who is for it. He worked for Pres Obama as I said before. You also ignored the fact that Pres Obama, Sen Schumer and Speaker Pelosi were all for a wall. Were they wrong?
Once again, since you can't make your point you resort to an insult. Standard practice for you. I go to the border almost every weekend so I have talked to more than 12 border agents. How many have you talked to?
