PALOMINAS — While the effectiveness of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border on illegal immigration and smuggling activity is a matter of debate for some, a presentation by a member of the environmental organization the Sierra Club sought to prove that the wall's adverse effects on the environment were undeniable.
Speaking to about a dozen people at the Sierra Vista Public Library on Saturday, Dan Millis, the Tucson-based coordinator of the Sierra Club's Borderlands project, explained to about two dozen attendees how the waiving of more than 30 federal environmental laws to make way for the construction of the border wall has resulted in erosion, flood damage to both countries and a stymieing of wildlife migration.
