When will the Paso del Norte region get tired of being lied to and demand the truth

ASARCO illegally burned SECRET toxic/hazardous waste, some with military sources, during the 1990's - and then this was kept secret from us for eight more years after the Federal Department of Justice and EPA made a secret agreement with that company.

To this day we have not been told what the EPA (and TCEQ) are hiding here. It is in our water, our aquifer, our soil and our air.

Late last year the EPA and UTEP made a memorandum-of-understanding (agreement) so that UTEP will do public health and environmental studies under the EPA. Is this more cover-up?

When will the Paso del Norte region get tired of being lied to and demand the truth of what happened here? Our children deserve to know what happened even if people are afraid to face it. There can be no clean-up or health or true environmental science until this BIG LIE has been exposed.

It is time for all of us to ask what it is - what the toxic waste is that no one will talk about.
