Environmentalists are furious at the Trump administration for bulldozing federally protected cacti at the border to construct a wall between the United States and Mexico.
National Parks Conservation Association senior program manager Kevin Dahl captured an 18-second video that shows a bulldozer pushing saguaro cacti into a pile. The video was taken in Arizona’s Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, according to Dahl.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Saguaros are being bulldozed for the #BorderWall in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. Trump’s reckless border hysteria is destroying our environment and killing the very species this national monument was designated to protect,” said Laiken Jordahl, borderlands campaigner at the Center for Biological Diversity, in a tweet sharing Dahl’s video.
