President Donald Trump's big wall is not only bad for people, also for animals. The lawsuit claims that it would violate wildlife laws.
Newsweek reported that the newly proposed big and beautiful wall by the President that will be expanded along the U.S. Mexico border is currently receiving further criticisms. Many claims that Trump's wall will cause bad effects for people's communication and it will divide the families.
Aside from this, another lawsuit claims that the Trump's wall will not only cause bad to people but it wouldn't be good even for animals. Last week, the Center for Biological Diversity has filed a lawsuit explaining how the proposed 2,000-miles border wall would violate some laws. The CBD is a conservation group from Tucson, Arizona, and the lawsuit was proposed along with U.S. Congressman Raul Grijalva.
According to The New York Times, Grijalva, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Resources claimed that Trump did not further study the possible environmental impact of the big wall before moving on to its construction. He further stated that the plan for the wall would violate federal environmental laws that protect wildlife and the natural resources.
The lawsuit further claims that it seeks for the discontinuation of Trump's wall construction until the government would first analyze how the impact of the construction of the proposed wall would result. For them, the noise, light, and landscape changes on the construction would affect the plants as well as the other endangered species like Ocelots, Jaguars, Sonoran Pronghorns, among others.
Democrat Mr. Grijalva said, "Trump can fantasize the wall, but at the end of the day, it's Congress that appropriates the money and analysis to look at the consequences of the wall." Aside from Grijalva, other defendants of the lawsuit are U.S Department of Homeland Secretary John Kelly and Customs and Border Protection Acting Commissioner Kevin McAleenan. To note, the lawsuit is only the first legal action against the Trump's proposed wall, and there are more of it expected soon.
