Don't Finish Donald Trump's Border Wall

President Joe Biden

Thirty foot trump wall butting up against 18 foot existing barrier at the beginning of Friendship Park.  And Group of people on US side looking through both walls trying to greet people on the Mexican side

The United States Border Patrol is preparing to erect two 30-foot border walls across the face of Friendship Park, the historic binational meeting place at the western-most end of the US-Mexico border just south of San Diego. Border Patrol officials have characterized this as a project merely to "replace" existing infrastructure. But the current plan adheres to design protocols fashioned in the Trump Administration.  The lack of site-specific designs and accommodations represents the desecration of this unique location. Watch this 30-second video contrasting the proposed walls with those currently onsite.

Local stakeholders are prepared to engage with US Border Patrol officials in respectful dialogue to secure a safe and secure future for Friendship Park that will respect the cultural, historical, and environmental significance of this unique location. Tell President Biden not to finish Donald Trump's Border Wall!

To: President Joe Biden
From: [Your Name]

Dear President Biden:

We were inspired by your campaign promise that "not another foot of wall" would be built on the U.S.-Mexico border in your Administration. ​Now, we fear you run the risk of becoming known across the southwest United States, and throughout Mexico, as the President who put the finishing touches on Donald Trump’s border wall.

We ask you to direct DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to pause all construction at Friendship Park, the historic binational meeting place at the western-most end of the US-Mexico border just south of San Diego.

By sending US Border Patrol officials back to the drawing board, and by directing them to engage in meaningful consultations with a full range of local stakeholders, you can be remembered as the President who saved Friendship Park.

Sincerely,
