Federal DOJ Trustee for Corpus Christi TX ASARCO Bankruptcy and sites failing to do their job

It is illegal in our lay-opinion for the Federal DOJ Bankruptcy Trustee to continue to make legal decisions and recommendations that act as if Asarco (Encycle and Asarco inc.) never engaged in nearly ten years of secret hazardous-waste-disposal for $$. (see news announcement, below)  Why is the Federal DOJ Trustee not acting on this knowledge, that they were legally apprised of back in 2006?

We respectfully demand that the Obama Administration's DOJ appointees and the EPA's Obama Administration appointees demand that the DOJ Bankruptcy Trustee (Region 7 Judy A. Robbins United States Trustee ) do their job and require that the trustees overseeing that liquidation, Michael Boudloche (Corpus Christi), Mr. Puga (El Paso TX) consider the ramifications from the illegal secret wastes.   It is now public-domain-knowledge (both from the released-1998-formerly-confidential for settlement purposes only 72 page document AND from the 1994 Asarco Encycle Supervisor Whistleblower report) that Asarco-Encycle and Asarco El Paso TX (and E. Helena MT) ran an un-permitted hazardous-waste disposal-operation for nearly ten years just to make money.

There should be no demolition at these sites until there is full disclosure of the secret wastes handled and burned at these sites, using comprehensive chemical analyses recommended by the International La Paz Accord JAC group several years ago.
