Border Wall: Map of February 2019 DHS-DOD Request

Border Wall: Map of February 2019 DHS-DOD Request

Abstract

The Trump Administration has continued to advance work on the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Recently, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) made a formal request to the Department of Defense to build extensive new sections of wall in western portions of the border. Here we map those sections and show that they will overlap significantly with wildlife corridors Defenders of Wildlife has identified throughout the area.
