Trump border wall man camp moved from NM town

Earth is female; rape is forever.

Man camps are vectors for disease and violent crime. Montana and North Dakota have both suffered the effects of the camps that prey on women and girls where rapes and murders committed by predatory criminals have become commonplace.

Out of state laborers being housed in a New Mexico hamlet while destroying wildlife habitat for the Trump Organization's border barrier and apparently not subject to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's self-quarantine order have been forced out of town after public outcry.
The congregate trailer housing, or "man camp," was arranged by the Texas-based SLS Company, the contractor awarded $963 million in contracts for border wall construction along 72 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border, per the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Meanwhile, U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., an opponent of the border wall, called for a temporary halt on construction until the COVID-19 emergency passed. After initial reports of 10 trailers assembled on the lot, two more were installed on the same lot last weekend. [Las Cruces Sun-News]
