The Latest On: Trump Administration
Lisa Garcia, Vice President of Litigation for Healthy Communities, Earthjustice: “Taking money away from the tribes and from low-income communities and the communities that need it the most is definitely not making America great again.”
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."
Thomas Cmar, Staff Attorney, Coal Program: "The rules were essentially establishing a standard that was many years overdue, and I think the industry has quickly adopted it because they've recognized that [failure to address the coal ponds] is a practice that needs to end. This is a significant liability for these plants."
