The Sierra Club’s Borderlands Team works vigorously to protect the ecosystems and wildlife migration corridors along both the U.S. border with Mexico and our border with Canada by challenging the construction of border walls and other enforcement infrastructure, and seeks permanent protection for environmentally sensitive areas. The Sierra Club supports full enforcement of our nation’s environmental and public interest laws, and we are working to rescind the authority to wiave environmental laws granted to the Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, we advocate for monitoring, restoration and mitigation projects to fully address the environmental impacts of border infrastructure.

El equipo Borderlands de Sierra Club trabaja para defender y restaurar los valores naturales de la frontera sur de Estados Unidos.

Luchamos vigorosamente para proteger los ecosistemas y la vida silvestre, y para reparar las separaciones migratorias a lo largo de ambas partes de las fronteras de EUA con México y con Canadá. Desafiamos la construcción de muros fronterizos y otras implementaciones de infraestructura que son dañinas al medioambiente y buscamos protección permanente de áreas ambientalmente claves. Sierra Club apoya la plena aplicación del derecho de interés ambiental y público de nuestra nación, y estamos trabajando para que remuevan la autoridad del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional para anular las leyes ambientales. Además, abogamos por la supervisión de proyectos en restauración y mitigación para abordar plenamente el impacto ambiental de la infraestructura fronteriza.
