2. A couple days ago I read that the shipping container work is causing a lot more destruction.

The contractors are illegally making staging areas and extra roads on forest service and other national land, they're blocking washes, destroying full-grown trees, bulldozing, ignoring environmental issues. Whereas small animals at least had been able to get through the slats in the drumpf wall, now even they are prevented from crossing. I know the locals close to the border want relief from their real or perceived threat of the border crossers and smugglers, but this ramrodding and defiance by Ducey in his final weeks of office seems like a terrible way to do it.

What is the mood of the locals in your rural area, a few dozen miles further from the border?
