The Republicans were right: Sen. Shapleigh wants to develop the Super Toxic Asarco Site

"Our community has a historic opportunity to redevelop one of the key sites in our community, the true Pass of the North," Shapleigh said.

In other communities, stadiums have been placed on Asarco riverfront properties, and in still others, research parks or other key installations have been placed.

"Due to the proximity to Mexico, the historic nature of Peace Park across the river, and the rail and access to UTEP, this site is very important to El Paso's future."

    "Incorporated herein by reference is a copy of
    an internal EPA memorandum dated June 28, 2001, which contains the
    following handwritten sentence:  "The TNRCC is concerned that the
    El Paso sampling plan doesn't undermine the ASARCO Corpus sampling
    delima (sic)."  An inescapable inference from this sentence is the
    fact that ASARCO has compromised employees of both the EPA and
    TCEQ.   Both ASARCO and the regulators are concealing certain
    ASARCO contaminants from the residents of Corpus Christi and the
    Paso del Norte Region.  Every individual who either knows, or
    should know that ASARCO's contamination is being concealed is
    exposed to both criminal and civil liability"
