The Opposition

 

This wall is contrary to what makes this country great and stymies efforts to protect our friends, our neighbors, our colleagues, our families, and ourselves, forcing millions to live in fear. It is an affront to human and civil rights and to our vibrant border communities and borderlands.

Listed below are cities, states, and a growing coalition of organizations across the country that have publicly opposed efforts to expand or replace the border wall.
