MSNBC guest says border wall will prevent birds from migrating
The border wall between the U.S. and Mexico could leave some American landowners living on the outside. But according to a recent guest on MSNBC, the big problem is that animals and birds will suffer.
The wall would be an "unprecedented environmental catastrophe," Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin told MSNBC last week. The biologist said that thanks to President Donald Trump's border wall project, a wolf species will be "on the chopping block," while birds will be disturbed and unable to migrate.
On Tuesday's "Pat & Stu," the guys wondered why bats and birds can't simply fly over the wall and why the wolves won't be smart enough to shift to a nearby location.
"The wall is going to kill off and make extinct the Mexican gray wolf?" Pat Gray asked. "That is as dumb as I've ever heard."
Stu Burguiere pointed out that dramatic rhetoric is common to these kinds of discussions. "They'll always make these arguments because they want to use the environment. The way they phrase it, 'in the crosshairs,' 'on the chopping block.' They'd be moving a few feet."MSNBC, Migration, Border Wall Birds, Mexican Gray Wolf, Eco Nonsense, Birds Will Suffer
