A federal judge in Arizona settled a lawsuit filed against DHS and CBP, saying the agencies failed to study potential harms to the environment from increased enforcement along the U.S.-Mexico border. The judge sided with the Center for Biological Diversity and AZ’s Rep. Raul Grijalva in the lawsuit they filed in 2017. Brian Segee, the center’s legal director for endangered species, said the decision is “a win for wildlife and communities along the border,” and now hopes the Biden administration will look more into what enforcement can do to protect borderland flora and fauna.
