At Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, a remote desert area in southwestern Arizona bordered by Mexico to the south and a Native American reservation to the east, red-lettered signs warning ofâ BLASTINGâ began appearing over the past week.
Crews have been blasting the hillside while excavators and backhoes are clearing a path for the Trump administrationâs towering border wall sections, a pace that environmental groups are concerned that sacred burial sites and ancestral lands are at risk of being irreversibly damaged.

The libtards are at it again, scraping the bottom of the barrel for reasons not to protect our borders and national sovereignty. Watch for more if Dementia Joe gets inaugurated.
No risk from the mounds of garbage and environmental destruction from the invaders?
Most of Oklahoma is native American property.
Don’t see liberals rushing to kick the white man out.

The only thing grijalva is concerned about is not having enough illegal aliens voting to keep him in office.
You eff up that Indian Burial Ground Donald!
Tell the rocks and shrubbery to stick it where the sun don't shine.
Shouldn’t have buried them right on the border in the first place... People need to know what country they’re buried in anyway.
Removing tongue from cheek now.
Simple solution. Stop building over the site
Let the illegals walk all over your sacred graves all night every night. Or work with the locals and figure out a win /win situation.
This “sacred Indian ground” is a joke. Go on to the To’ono Indian reservation and begin observations. Every rock, every outcrop, every tree, every spring, every freeking toilet is ‘sacred ground.’ Intelligent Indians know the fake from the real. The problem is that the Indian Nation,like the Democrat Party, is loaded with leaders on the make. The truth is that if the Feds succeed in their Border Wall it will break many To’ono rice bowl that is now involved in both people, narcotics and cash smuggling.
I was there few years ago (Obama time). The National Monument was mostly closed to public, only one part was opened. They told me that one ranger (Kris Engle) was murdered by the drug dealers and they cannot guarantee anybody’s safety, so rather than risk more murders, they just closed most of the Monument.
I’m pretty sure anyone can use the term “Native-American burial site” quite loosely to fit any occasion.
Oh no! Not sacred Indian burial sites! Has this monster Trump no humanity at all?Earlier there was a story about cacti being felled.
If I am not mistaken President Roosevelt had a law passed that made a 50 yard strip along the border federal property Indians notwithstanding sooo technically the Federal government may have a superseding claim. Since drug cartels tend to funnel drugs throught Indian Controlled areas they need to get this up as soon as possible.
I would support help programs for reservation residents who have been hooked on drugs by the cartels and a controlled pass through the wall for the reservation on the reservation if it is joint Tribal/Federal Border patrol run, or located just off the reservation if the tribe does not agree to joint control.
If the Apache tribe wants to relocate its dead if they are in the path the wall they should take this opportunity to do so. White Christians are occasionally to relocate their dead on occasion. On occasion rivers or movement in the land will also relocate buried remains.
I have a deceased relative who got buried beneath a Piggly Wiggly because the grave was just marked by a few medium sized plain rocks and later landowners eventually forgot the little family graveyard was there.
The "concern" of leftist imbecile groups is zero justification for remedial action.
why is it that Indian sites are venerated even with very little substantiating proof, but Americans aren’t allowed to have a heritage?
