US border wall is being sold in Mexico as scrap metal – Insider

“There were DHS and Army Corps of Engineers officials, standing there watching their contractors with a bulldozer and front-end loaders push the scrap metal onto the Mexican side,” Gary Nabhan, a desert ecologist, told the station. “And Mexican scrap metal scavengers were coming right up to the border.”

Nabhan told KOB4 that he believed that dumping the old wall for anyone to haul away in Sonoyta, Mexico, is both a taxpayer waste and environmentally concerning.

“All of that metal and concrete should have been carried away to Phoenix or Tucson where there’s legal disposal sites or recycling centers – none of it should have been pushed into Mexico,” Nabhan said.
