Halt Border Wall Construction to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Target: Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America

Goal: Stop the construction of the border wall during the coronavirus crisis in order to protect vulnerable border towns.

Hundreds of border wall construction workers pass through the small town of Ajo, Arizona daily. Despite the threat of Covid-19, Customs and Border Protection announced plans to build another 150 miles of wall. Meanwhile, residents of small border towns such as Ajo fear for their health.

Residents of Ajo claim that border wall workers are seen partying and going into stores in groups as large as 20. Ajo resident Susan Guinn-Lahm said, “The rest of us are staying home just the way the governor ordered. We’re taking this seriously. They are not.”

In response, Arizona congressman Raul Grijalva said, “The presence of large construction crews in small border towns threatens the health of those communities where they are already underprepared to deal with the public health emergency.” Sign below to demand President Trump halt the construction of the border wall during the Covid-19 crisis in order to prioritize the health of citizens in border communities.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

You claim that “the Democrat policy of open borders is a direct threat to the health and wellbeing of all Americans,” and therefore rationalize the wall as a way to contain the spread of the disease. However, allowing hundreds of construction workers to pass through towns like Ajo, Arizona daily directly contradicts your claim to protect the health of American citizens.

The residents of Ajo fear for their health and the livelihood of their town. I demand that you halt the construction of the border wall during the coronavirus crisis in order to protect the citizens of vulnerable border towns.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
