Tell Congress to Build Bridges, Not Walls

Sign the petition to tell Congress to build bridges, not walls, along the border. Across the border, there are already over 650 miles of fencing and barriers. Our borderlands have become militarized with checkpoints, towers and armed border patrol officers who drive across our public lands and along the border at will. All of this activity has caused needless deaths of both humans and wildlife in our borderlands. Photo: Northern Jaguar Project/Naturalia
