We must ensure the Shadow Wolves have necessary authority to secure the Tohono O’odham Nation’s border, keeping Arizonans safe while respecting the Nation’s tribal sovereignty.

#ICYMI the construction of the border wall in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is destroying more than an epic desert landscape. It is destroying the sacred land that has supported the Tohono O'odham nation for the last 16,000 years.

Border wall construction is endangering Indigenous sites — including an oasis that has supported humans for the last 16,000 years. “To state it clearly, we are enduring crimes against humanity,” the governor of the Tohono O’odham Nation said.

“I know in my heart and what our elders have told us and what we have learned — that that area is home to our ancestors,” Tohono O’odham Nation chair Ned Norris Jr. testified, adding that the Wednesday blasting had “forever damaged our people.”

Warren's plans mention Trump's border wall construction and how it is harming local communities along our borders, specifically Organ Pipe Cactus Monument, "without the permission of and meaningful consultation with the Tohono O'odham Nation."

Anger is building over blasting of Native American sacred sites to build the border wall Tohono O'odham leader in Mexico calls desecration "crimes against humanity" My report from Organ Pipe in Arizona:

Committee Dems can attempt to sugarcoat the reality, but the Tohono O'odham reservation has been dealing with a silent crisis. With no barriers at the border, cartels have taken advantage of their land and tribe. Establishing a border wall would protect them and others.

Arizona's Pinal County is about the size of Connecticut. Just above the Tohono O’odham Nation’s Reservation & about 60 mi north of the border, it has a daily influx of drugs & human trafficking. @sherifflamb1  briefed us about the situation & his coordination w/ law enforcement.

Trump's destruction at the border is erasing Native American history, which is to say it's erasing American history. The Tohono O'odham have seen their land destroyed & sacred sites ruined. Listen to Chairman Ned Norris about what this means & why we must end it. #NoBorderWall

The Tohono O'odham tribe in my district in #AZ03  has members on both sides of the border, and Trump's unnecessary wall would cut then off from their sacred sites and their traditional homeland. One of the many reasons I will not support a border wall.
