Indigenous Leaders and Allies Demand Halt to Construction of U.S. Border Wall

HeadlineJan 25, 2021

Indigenous leaders, immigrant justice advocates and veterans held a national day of action in over a dozen U.S. cities yesterday urging President Biden to take further steps to stop the construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall. This is Stan Rodriguez, a Kumeyaay Indigenous leader, speaking from the California-Mexico border Sunday.

Stan Rodriguez: “This is a national call to action to the border wall and the damage that has been done, not just to the environment, but also cultural sites, spiritual sites, that are important for our people, the Kumeyaay people.”
