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."
Patti Goldman, Managing Attorney, Earthjustice: "A new president has to deal with the record and evidence and findings. If you take climate and the endangerment finding, that is a scientific finding that is upheld by the court. That finding has legal impacts. If there's a directive along those lines, there will have to be a process."
Ted Zukoski, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: “[The increase in dead trees] is just another piece of evidence the climate is changing and that it is having dramatic impacts. We need to take strong action to address it.”
