Forty Percent of U.S.-Mexico Border WIDE OPEN
Did you know that FORTY PERCENT of the U.S.- Mexico border is public land that current environmental law dictates cannot be driven on even by U.S. Border Patrol?
Why? Because tire tracks (like those from Border Patrol vehicles) collect water and, by preventing it from pooling naturally, cause water to evaporate too quickly and support less vegetation.
So, for the sake of saving a few cacti and desert shrubs, Congress passed this absolutely ridiculous law that leaves nearly half of our border WIDE OPEN to illegal immigrants and drug smugglers.
Right now, federal agents trying to patrol the border and defend America cannot do their jobs effectively because of Congress. What a surprise.
