Enviro-Marxists want to add jaguars to NM population to stop border wall

The far-left Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) dark money group is petitioning the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to reintroduce jaguars into New Mexico’s Gila National Forest in the southwestern part of the state. 

According to the Arizona Republic, “The 107-page scientific petition seeks the reintroduction of jaguars to the Gila National Forest in southwestern New Mexico. It also calls for the designation of critical habitat for their recovery in New Mexico and Arizona, including space to facilitate safe cross-border movements between the U.S and Mexico.” 

The group’s Michael Robinson wrote in the lengthy legal filing, “We’re requesting a total of 14 million acres of critical habitat in both states,” adding, “The goal, of course, is to recover the jaguar in part of its historic range in the Southwest.”

CBD’s move, which is supposedly meant to protect the large South American cat, just so happens to be an opportunity for enviro-Marxists to attempt the ending of border security between the United States and Mexico, claiming the cat has a large population in the border state of Sonora, Mexico. The Mexican state borders both Arizona and New Mexico.

The lefist group claims, as reported by The Republic, “Populations of jaguars in South America are healthier and show significantly more genetic diversity than those found in northern Mexico. Rapid expansion of development, a border wall and the construction of Interstate 10 have all been linked to the destruction of habitat for the jaguar in the southwestern United States and Sonora.” However, the report even notes how the populations of the jaguars — which are by no means native to the United States — are weakening. 

Jaguars were first reported to be in the United States in the late 1700s. The population mostly became extinct around the 1960s, and environmentalists have been chomping at the bit to revive the cats’ population. There are a few jaguars still roaming throughout the southwestern United States.

“This is a real opportunity to do right by a species that has been part of the Southwest for a very long time and has only been gone for a relatively brief period of time,” claimed Robinson.

CBD is responsible for harming cattle ranchers and others who conserve land with frivolous lawsuits. Notably, the group petitioned for a cut in cattle grazing to save the supposedly “fragile” meadow jumping mouse in New Mexico’s Sacramento Mountains. No one has ever physically seen the creature there. 

In the past, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said, “the relentless petitions and lawsuits over endangered species have diverted too many agency resources to the courtroom,” according to The New York Times.

  1. Well why not. After all, jaguars and Meadow Jumping Mice are so much more important than our national security, ending human trafficking, and keeping dangerous criminals and drugs from entering our country and state, right?

    No offense to the fragile jumping mouse 🙄, but this state doesn’t give a rat’s a$$ about the people they’re supposed to be representing.

  2. Those Eco fools are at it again
    Jaguar belongs in the forest of South America not here in New Mexico this could become a major invasive species and ruin our ecosystem and our native l animals…. The guan brown snake is an invasive species and 12 native birds went extinct because of them for one example another example is the Florida python and invasive species but doing a lot of damage
    Around 50% of jaguars are found in Brazil alone, and the rest of the jaguar populations live in the remaining 8 countries that share the Amazon rainforest: Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Guyana, Suriname, Venezuela, and the oversea territory of French Guiana.

  3. Jaguars evolved in and are native to North America. They eventually moved south to South/Central America and AZ/NM. As much as I would like to see these animals, risking our border and country isnt worth it. BUILD THE WALL!

  4. Enviro-Marxists have nothing better to do. Bunch of dumb asses think they are enviro gods. They actually like interfering with the environment rather than protecting it. Build the wall and leave the jaguars alone.
