Oh, please...using the environment's health to prop up a racist agenda is infuriating, absolutely transparent, and rather unoriginal. We should be upset about the Earth's destruction, to be sure, but guess which communities suffer most from pollution, bad air, and tainted water? Poor ones, especially those in poor countries. Guess which nation produces the most waste per capita? Why yes, it is the wealthier United States. If people want to do something productive about litter, then I agree, let's all get out there and pick it up. But while we're at it, we might also ask how it is that we're able to maintain our lifestyle of consumerism and waste, which causes far greater environmental destruction than the so-called "aliens" who cross the border in hopes of supporting themselves and their families.
