The Trump administration is targeting wildlife refuges on the U.S.-Mexico border as the first sites for his promised wall. Along with decimating the refuges, the plan would hurt the local economy, elevate flood risks, and disrupt migration patterns, all in the interest of anti-immigrant xenophobia.

Hundreds gathered and marched in Mission, Texas in July 2017. The Save the Mission! Save the River! Resist the Wall! procession highlighted the community support for a church that has been active since 1899.
