The article discusses the emergence of U.S. Congressional Bills HR399 and S208 that would waive environmental legal protections of the Canadian and Mexican borders of the U.S. as well as construct the U.S. equivalent of the Israel/Palestine border wall. The indigneous lands affected by borderland loss and militarization is tackled. One of the most unique legal challenges of the bills is outlined claiming that the border waivers represent a sweeping, unprecedented waiver of U.S. law.
