Ah! Well! Nothing new under the sun really. It is just a bit more official now. sad really as such a project would have had a great impact (social, eco, future vision, environment, cooperation, political etc.) in an area that needs to have such integrating project (Northern Mexico and SouthWest US). A same really and a missed opportunity.
Nevertheless keep hoping and fighting
I agree with you that it’s merely a formalization of what’s been the policy for years, Pierre. But it just annoys me that politicians are using America’s well-known xenophobia to ruin vital wildlands and cause who-knows-what-damage, all in the name of “security” and to placate a vocal group of moaners.
