Complaint: saguaros pushed over to build Trump's wall in Organ Pipe Cactus NMon being sold illegally

Arizona's attorney general has been asked to investigate the possible theft and illegal sale of saguaro cactus that were removed from or knocked down in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument to make way for a 30-foot-tall border wall.

"We wish to express our concern regarding attempted sales of saguaros in Ajo, Arizona, apparently done without tags or permits authorized by the Arizona Department of Agriculture," reads part of the letter sent Monday to Attorney General Mark Brnovich. "If verified, these alleged efforts to sell saguaros from border wall construction sites offer a tangible example of the failure of the Pentagon, Customs and Border Protection Agency, and Army Corps of Engineers to keep their contractors within the law."
