_Check out our new Southern Border Communities Coalition (SBCC) Border Lens page that illustrates how COVID-19 is affecting border communities and how taxpayer dollars could be spent on keeping communities healthy and recovering from the pandemic instead of building more of Trump’s (devastatingly harmful) border wall campaign prop.

_The family of David Villalobos (¡presente!), along with Alliance San Diego and the American Friends Service Committee (and us), mourn the senseless and brutal loss of life and demand a full, independent and transparent investigation--free from DHS interference--after Mr. Villalobos was fatally shot by a  Border Patrol agent at the San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego.

_SBCC steering committee member Ricky Garza of the Texas Civil Rights Project told CNN that Trump’s lethal border wall obsession is forcing border region residents  “to choose between their health and their homes.” 

_While the Trump administration has terminated crucial protections for gray wolves in the United States, that decision doesn’t apply to a small population of Mexican grey wolves in Arizona and New Mexico, although these Mexican grey wolves still face extinction by border wall construction, notes SBCC steering committee member Kevin Bixby of the Southwest Environmental Center. 

_There is absolutely zero reason to celebrate 400 miles (possibly prematurely) of Trump’s border wall being constructed; our colleagues at the Washington Office of Latin America (WOLA) break down the harms here.
