House Democrats from Texas are pressing their Republican colleagues in the Senate to reject President Trump‘s emergency declaration at the southern border, warning of a major “land grab” affecting property owners in the Lone Star State if Trump’s border wall is realized.
The Democrats noted that Texas is home to roughly 1,200 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border — much of it private property that could be seized to build Trump’s promised barrier that he claims is necessary to prevent illegal immigration and crime.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The people of Texas, and the private property owners of Texas, have the most to lose if President Trump is allowed to unilaterally go and build his border wall with an emergency declaration,” Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) said Wednesday on a press call.
“We believe that it would be the largest federal land grab of Texas land in history.”

    Those are the same farmers and ranchers who say it isn’t safe because of the illegals. They have the most to gain in the land being used for a wall. Sometimes you have to give something in order to receive safety.

    Doesn’t it just take a few feet off of their land at the border? I believe the government pays them for it. I would think they would want the extra protection.
