Short Description of Activity

After receiving input, our Borderlands Committee facilitator and sent a letter to U.S. Senator M. Heinrich, asking if he would consider initiating a “Dear Colleague” letter to his fellow Senators. This letter would request the rescinding of all border wall funding for construction; the transfer of at least $225 million from DHS to DOI and USFS to remediate damage from wall construction, etc. (See attached draft letter)


Have not heard yet, but will ask at our next Borderlands Committee meeting.
