Trump team discussing border wall with Army Corps, Interior Department
President-elect Donald Trump's transition team is engaged in active discussions with the US Army Corps of Engineers and Interior Department to begin planning a wall along the Mexican border, including how specific environmental laws could get in the way, CNN has learned. [...]
"If they really try to build a wall, without regard for environmental laws and without environmental impact statements, the effect of a border wall would be more catastrophic than a border fence," she said.
A wall would prevent water from flowing across the Mexican border, and there is also wildlife that migrates across the border, including the endangered ocelot, also known as a dwarf leopard, located in south Texas and northern Mexico, she said.

I prefer fencing
Three times a day I drive along border road next to a 18-ft-high steel fence. I regularly watch as rabbits hop through the openings.
There are numbers atop the fence that show where washes cross the border. People hide in these washes.
During the monsoon season I watch as water in these washes flows through the same fence openings.
Even with these openings, just east of my ranch one wash needed a movable gate that is raised during the monsoon season to allow water to flow. A wall would necessitate massive flood control systems.
For many reasons, I prefer fencing over a solid border wall.
