Border wall construction raises concerns about environmental impacts

Tony Paniagua visited Sasabe and the Coronado National Memorial, where projects are underway.

Work continues along Arizona's southern border on more than 60 miles of new, 30-foot bollard fencing. Tony Paniagua reports on how the ongoing construction has given rise to concerns about the project’s impact on the environment. He traveled to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge near the community of Sasabe in Pima County, as well as the Arizona Trail on the Coronado National Memorial in Cochise County.
