An emergency restraining order against the federal government to stop construction of the wall may be filed by Thurs. by  the National Butterfly Center.  In Oct, environmental and historic preservation laws were waived to expedite the construction of the wall. About 200 acres of land that sits on the center's property south of a levee, about two miles inland from the Rio Grande River, was set aside for the protection of a remnant of native habitat, endangered species such as the ocelot, and the graves of Native American people. "Everything will be desecrated, bulldozed and cut off from access by citizens and landowners," according to GoFundMe campaign, "Protect the National Butterfly Center." Add'l lawsuits filed by the Center for Biological Diversity challenged the waivers granted by the Supreme Court.
