The Border Wall: Environmental Law and Policy

February 16, 2017 3:00 pm — 4:30 pm

On January 25, 2017, in his first week in office, President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order calling for the “immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border” of the United States. Such a wall would span more than a thousand miles, across many different habitats and many different communities. Before a wall will be built, numerous questions are left to be answered. Do environmental laws apply? How might all this work?

This webinar convened experts to discuss how environmental law and policy may interact with the border wall EO. The goal was to spark discussion about important environmental resources and communities along the border.
