Tell Rep. Pearce: No Border Wall in New Mexico

Jaguar

President Trump insists on a border wall that would halt the life-sustaining migration of wildlife into, and out of, the United States -- from jaguars and Mexican gray wolves to New Mexico ridge-nosed rattlesnakes. In return for killing off endangered animals, what would this massively expensive wall accomplish?

Absolutely nothing, to judge from history and the miles of border wildlands where a destructive wall already exists. The structure will fail to stop desperate human migrants. It will drive vanishing species toward extinction. And it will stand as a monument to the senseless ruin of our beautiful Chihuahuan Desert -- unless we speak out.

Please take a moment to call Congressman Steve Pearce at (202) 225-2365 and request that he tell Trump not to build a wall along New Mexico's border.

We need Pearce's voice to counter Trump's crude and simplistic vision, and we need yours to show Pearce that this wall does not have local support.

Here's a sample call script which you can paraphrase into your own words.

Hi, my name is _______ and I'm calling from _______ .  I'd like to request that Representative Pearce tell President Trump not to build a wall along New Mexico's border. A wall would harm wildlife but would not increase border security. Also, I would like to hear back from him on specific actions he will take to ensure a wall doesn't get built and destroy our desert. Here's my contact information: _______. Thank you.


Please take action by June 20, 2017.
