Tucson Joins Pima County in Lawsuit over Trump’s Border Wall

HeadlineDec 05, 2019

In Arizona, the Tucson City Council has voted unanimously to join Pima County in taking part in a lawsuit aimed at halting the construction of Trump’s border wall in three sensitive environmental areas: the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge and the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area. The Trump administration waived a slew of environmental laws in order to speed up construction in the protected areas, which are also sacred lands to Tohono O’odham people and other indigenous communities.
