Restarting Construction of the Harmful Border Wall
Senate Roll Call Vote 298
Issues: Wildlife, Public Lands/Forests, Environmental Justice

Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) offered an amendment to H.R. 3684, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which would have continued to waste taxpayer dollars on a hateful and harmful border wall by prohibiting the cancellation of contracts for its construction. This amendment would have tied the Biden administration’s hands as it looks to stop wall construction and prevent further damage to border communities and the environment they depend on, which includes some of the most fragile and sensitive public lands in the U.S., habitat for imperiled species, and vital migration routes for wildlife. On August 4, the Senate rejected the Johnson amendment by a vote of 48-49 (Senate roll call vote 298). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
