Could President Trump's border wall really be derailed by a wildlife sanctuary and an activist group devoted to butterflies? The answer is almost certainly no, but it's still fun to think about.
The National Butterfly Center is located on a 100-acre sanctuary in South Texas. The butterfly sanctuary's founder, Jefferey Glassberg, said no one warned him that Trump's wall would come thrashing right through the center of the habitat. He told the Texas Observer that it was the sound of a chainsaw tearing through the sanctuary that raised a red flag for Glassberg. According to the Observer, by law Glassberg should have been notified by the government in writing prior to them arriving on his property.
"There’s a procedure the government could follow with due process. But they’ve decided — like with so much else — to just ignore the law, trampling on private property rights. The complete disrespect for the legalities of this country is something that ought to concern every American regardless of how they feel about a border wall,” Glassberg said in an interview with the Observer.
