More than 1,300 square miles were cut in the first 7 months of his term. That's the size of Rhode Island! And it puts him on pace to deforest an area larger than the whole of Massachusetts.

Many are left with no choice but to leave their homes and seek refuge in the U.S., only to be met with more violence and oppression by our own government.
