    Thank you for remembering the wildlife that would inevitably suffer from the ridiculous idea of building a fence that would, for one, serve as a symbol of exclusion to the Mexicans—not to mention the increased danger it would pose to those that would still dare to cross the border—and, for two, it would halt migration patterns of innocent animals that would suffer from the changes in their environment, leading to the extinction of those native species
