On February 3, 2022, Sky Island Alliance submitted a comment letter to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regarding their January 2022 Border Barrier Remediation Plan for Pima County, Santa Cruz County, and Cochise County. The 119 miles of border within the scope of the plan runs through a world-renowned biodiversity hotspot and is home to many threatened and endangered species including jaguar and native fish such as the desert sucker and longfin dace.
This letter contains an overview of feedback on the Remediation Plan. Sky Island Alliance made more geographic-specific recommendations on the CBP storymap. View the Alternative Google Map, created by Wildlands Network, for more details.
Sky Island Alliance joined 70 other groups and organizations in sending this document to the White House. The document calls for the current federal administration to cancel border wall contracts, mitigate construction damage, remove sections of built wall, and restore equal protection under the law along the U.S-Mexico border. We hope this document will be a reference tool we can use as we and many others work with the Biden administration to tear down the worst of this border wall.Download File (756.04K)
