Blasting taking place inside Organ Pipe Cactus NMon to build Trump's border wall

Construction crews are blasting a hill on Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument to make way for the border wall.

The blasting is taking place on Monument Hill, just to the west of the port of entry in Lukeville, a small border town 150 miles southwest of Tucson. Contractors are building the 30-foot-tall steel wall on the side of the hill as part of a 43-mile project on Organ Pipe and the adjacent Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge.
