Rep. Grijalva Urges Biden Administration to Refocus on Mitigating Environmental Damage Caused by Border Wall

WASHINGTON – Following the Department of Homeland Security announcement to continue construction of border barrier projects, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva issued the following statement:

“Continued construction at the border must focus on mitigating damages caused by the border wall of the previous administration. The Biden administration must use funds to remove divisive barriers that have damaged the environment and pursue humane border policies. I continue to urge the Biden Administration to meaningfully engage with local stakeholders on mitigating and repairing the environmental harm caused by construction, cancel all remaining contracts, remove troops and military equipment from the border, and rescind the harmful REAL ID Act waiver of 2005 that has facilitated this destruction.”
