Native burial sites blown up for US border wall

MAGA über alles
In the US, reportedly, Native American burial sites in Arizona have been blown up by construction crews building the US-Mexico border wall, according to lawmakers and tribal leaders.
Over there, lobby groups like the "American Committee for Cultural Policy" try to pressurise the Federal government not to place restrictions on the movement of unpapered and illegally obtained artefacts into the US antiquities market on the grounds that the source nations allegedly don't do enough to protect their own cultural heritage from pillage (not enough to satisfy MAGAist 'World Policeman USA'). Perhaps to avoid accusations of extreme hypocrisy, they should first campaign to get the same standards applied at home that they would wish to impose on other sovereign nations. Or just keep discretely quiet.
