Raul Garcia, Legislative Counsel, Earthjustice: "With Trump's militarization of the border, he's specifically targeting immigrants and Latinos trying to make a life for themselves and their families."
Policy & Legislation
When Earthjustice wins big environmental victories in court, anti-environmental interests in Washington, D.C. often try to have Congress to overturn those court decisions through legislation.
To solidify the enduring impact of our legal victories, the Policy & Legislation team in Washington, D.C. works with champions in Congress to craft legislation that supports and extends our gains. The Policy & Legislation team also works to protect and strengthen federal environmental laws, and to prevent legislative attempts to undermine environmental progress.
Earthjustice promotes citizen enforcement of environmental laws and fight for new safeguards that go beyond current standards. The Policy & Legislation team advocates for stronger laws safeguarding children from toxic chemicals, protecting clean water standards,and tackling climate change.
