Border Field State Park

The notorious triple border fence with its 150-foot wide freeway like corridor will be visible from all parts of the San Diego Bay area, forever scarring the land. The entire cultural and environmental landscape of this international setting is at risk. The proposed fence corridor along this section of the International Border between the United States and Mexico would have a disastrous impact on the California State Park adjacent to San Diego County public lands. The wall will destroy sensitive prehistoric sites and historic sites including the site of a adobe ranch house, the 1850s Border Monument, fire control stations from WWII and significant historic trails, believed to be those of the 1769 Portola expedition and the Spanish padres.

The California Coastal Commission unanimously rejected the proposal, which consists of three parallel steel fences with a filled in freeway-wide road between. This will further degrade a border area that is already an international tragedy. SOHO is filing suit to block the destruction of this important cultural historic landscape.
