The border is a national security issue — but many in California don’t see it that way.
Including California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, who said in an interview with “The Golden State Podcast” that he would attempt to halt the border’s construction, at least in California, by using new environmental laws and regulations in the state.
“There’s something called CEQA in California—NEPA at the federal level,” Newsom told the podcast host. “There’s indigenous lands and autonomies relating to governance on those lands. There are all kinds of obstructions as it relates to just getting zoning approval and getting building permits. All those things could be made very, very challenging for the administration.”
Newsom hinted that if he could not actually stop the construction of the border wall in California, he would at least try to tie it up in bureaucratic battles.
Trump’s border wall is reportedly in the works, as he explained at a press conference at Trump Tower today that he would not be waiting on payment from Mexico and begin construction immediately.
