Activists Could Turn Trump's Wall Into A Dakota Pipeline-Style Fight
February 22, 2017
An American Indian tribe on the southern border says it’s ready to use a Dakota Access Pipeline-style protest to target President Donald Trump’s wall if it doesn’t go through the proper legal and congressional procedures.
Verlon M. Jose, vice chairman of the Tohono O’odham Nation, told reporters that people in his tribe were prepared to engage the Trump administration if the president eventually begins construction on the wall. The tribe, located in a small section of the border between Arizona and Mexico, is concerned Trump’s wall will trample Tohono O’odham’s tribal lands.
