United States: biodiversity is threatened by the current shutdown

Vandalism, trespassing, threats to biodiversity… Despite damage, Joshua Tree National Park will remain open. Thanks to a last minute emergency fund.

    Why don't people take their trash with them and dispose of it themselves?

    12 billion MORE for foreign aid ....take half of that for border security for USA. Wall, barrier in strategic places ...then we can move on. Ok, Pelosi, Schumer. Open borders? or start with wall/barrier?

    This definitely shows how dependent some people are to the government providing services. This all sounds so ridiculous.

    This has nothing to do with the President, it just confirms that people are lazy and find opportunity to disobey laws and ruin things.

    Leave the border unguarded and and a few thousand more american kids will die from drugs. And innocent people will be murdered. Put the blame where it belongs with those two virulent nasty demotwat fossils, whose only intetest out of pure personal hate is to block and obstruct everything this president does, regardless of the welfare of the people of this country. Youve goota be a half wit not to see this. As far as trash in the parks go. That can be cleaned up. But when a kid is dead or some innocent citizen is murdered. There gone forever.

    Well, actually, the wall wasn't funded for the first two years of Trump's presidency either; when Republicans had the majority.

    Sadly humans are that ignorant to bring garbage of any kind into such beauty.

    And USA still considers itself the world leader. What a joke. Behavior (both government and the people vadalizing just because they can) worse than many so called third world countries. It is time for US to start learning from Europe instead of living in their arogant buble.
