The Environmental Cost of Donald Trump’s Wall

I call it Donald Trump’s wall because that’s exactly what it is. The US President sells it as a wall that the American people need for security and protection from illegal immigration, but he uses false figures and continually stirs up hatred towards minorities to gain supporters from his Conservative base. In an address to the nation from the Oval Office, he doubled down on his rhetoric of fear against immigrants and has even tweeted unverified accounts of prayer rugs found near the border.
