Looks like the Trump Wall is going to bypass some possible environmental issues near San Diego.

"Studies" (generally very high priced crony studies) will be "waived" in particular areas that according to DHS are high traffic routes for illegal border crossings into the U.S.

Perhaps "Mitigation" will take a new meaning.

U.S. eases environment laws for Mexico border wall near San Diego

The United States will waive environmental rules so extra barriers can be built to bar illegal immigrants from crossing the border with Mexico near San Diego, the Department of Homeland Security said on Tuesday.

The projects, on about 15 miles (24 km) of the frontier extending east from the Pacific Ocean, are part of President Donald Trump's planned wall between the United States and Mexico.

The wall was a centerpiece of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign but Democrats and many Republicans have questioned its effectiveness. Immigration advocacy groups argue it would not stem illegal border crossings.

Well ?

Massive foot traffic is probably more damaging than a nice Serene wall...

Surely, the wall is on the border ... so only half of it ... or one of its faces ... will impact the US.

The wall itself is only so thick and thus will only impact a minimal area of the US.

But wait ... the yellow bellied swamp rat will have its feeding range curtailed ... thus the wall should not be built!

It's a wall, won't stop nothin!

Sometimes there is only one place to build the castle ... only one ... as in this case ... so rodents just have to take a back seat.

You fight Fire with Fire....

And I can care less about the slippery slope.

Come into this Country legally, and we won't have to worry about gaming the system.

well, a sewage drainage ditch that is home to a rare crap eating bacteria shouldn't stop the U.S. government from securing the borders. lets face it most environmental issues s involve nothing more than the protection of a supposed endangered species of some sort of reptile of fish.
when was the last time one of these supposed endangered species stopped an illegal from crossing the border and murdering an American citizen?
so, do we put the life of a northern mud sucking blue finned California piss fish above the life of an American citizen?

of course not that would just be insane.

nature will always adapt, the supposed endangered species will find another migration route.

Has anyone seen the NatGeo video of the trash and crap these illegals leave behind on their way into the U.S.? They are the environmental hazard not some wall.

I hope thousands of whackos go down there to protest. The drug cartel gangsters need target practice.
