Can a Native American tribe stop a wall from being constructed on their reservation? The government shutdown is now in its third week, with no end in sight. At the center of the impasse is nearly $6 billion in funding that President Trump is demanding to build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. But a Native American tribe whose land sits in both countries says it is adamantly opposed to a wall, and will do everything in its power to stop it from being built along a 75-mile stretch of their reservation in Arizona's Sonoran Desert.

The federal government has released a nearly $1 billion proposal to keep the invasive species out of the Great Lakes. In November, the federal government released a proposal to construct a nearly $1 billion infrastructure project in the state of Illinois to block Asian carp from entering the Great Lakes. The project is the latest in a decades-long battle against the invasive fish, which have already wreaked havoc in waterways up and down the Mississippi watershed. They are now being held out of the Great Lakes by a series of electric barriers in the Chicago area.

New Jersey plans for rising seas by moving some residents away from flood zones. Sea levels will rise globally between one and four feet by the end of the century, according to the National Climate Assessment released in November. And that predicted rise, along with a surge of damaging storms and hurricanes, could be catastrophic for the more than 30 million people living in flood-prone areas across the United States. In New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the country, more than 600,000 residents live in flood zones that can become inundated with storm water.
