there is already at least one state park/protected animal refuge that exists like this:

wall/legal barrier <------------------> park <---------------------> river <--> mexico

and yes, it's weird

Yeah. I didn't even get into the migration/animal problems that a wall would create. Deserts are tough enough environments for the various creepy-crawlers that live there.

Walling off the single major water source ain't gonna help, either.

my family will be fighting the new installments of the wall every step of the way, as they have fought all previous barriers

we care more about ocelots than humans but i promise that's not a personal failing
