National Butterfly Center to file restraining order on border wall

Customs and Border Protection and the Army Corps of Engineers have awarded Galveston-based SLSCO a $145 million contract to build the first six miles of a border-levee wall system along the U.S.-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

This includes about 200 acres of land that sits on the center’s property south of a levee, about two miles inland from the Rio Grande River. 

The land was set aside for the protection of a remnant of native habitat, endangered species such as the ocelot, and the graves of Native American people.

…The center has filed lawsuits to stop construction of the wall. Additional lawsuits filed by the Center for Biological Diversity challenged the waivers granted by the Supreme Court.

These cases are still working their way through the federal court system.
