Email Congress - Cut Off Funding for the Border Wall

Click HERE to go to the Democratic Courage website to send an email to your members of Confress urging them to cut off funding for the Border Wall and to support the Borderlands Conservation and Security Act.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced that he is going to waive 18 laws including the Endangered Species Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the Clean Water Act so he can build a wall between Arizona and Mexico in the San Pedro Riparian Conservation Area, allegedly to keep out illegal immigrants. The wall won't work to stop anyone with a ladder, or anyone who just overstays their visa, but it will mean death for endangered species of the Southwest like the ocelot, jaguar, and Sonoran Pronghorn Antelope. Contact your member of Congress today and ask them to cut off funding for the border wall and cosponsor the Borderlands Security and Conservation Act. Feel free to add your own text.
