    What percentage of Texas landowners do you think are going to be happy selling their property to the government for Trump's wall?

    Does it matter where a landowner is from ? It is their land, and they have every right to defend it in the courts. Good luck with Northern Carpet bagger line in court. Dont mess with Texas Trump !!

    Dunno about Utah, but do know a few Texans. When criminals of any stripe shoot at the locals, odds are the locals tend to shoot back...

    Probably because there is no horde of rapists crossing their land...

    The vast majority of drugs come in at the REGULATED crossing points.

    The number of illegals entering the country has fallen to record lows.

    Perhaps these conservative Texans don't care for government overreach from the rabid right on their land. Maybe they don't like 'government' no matter the party in power...

    It does to him. Trumpism is based on inflicting suffering on one’s perceived enemies. He hates liberals and northerners, and wants them harmed.

    Interesting article.

    https://www.azcentral.com/story/news...ain/859547001/

    While the future path of a full-length border wall is unknown, in Texas, nearly the entire length of its international boundary is privately owned. The border follows the middle of the Rio Grande, meaning land parcels begin a varying distance north of that line. The analysis of property records showed almost 5,000 parcels of land sit within 500 feet of the mid-river border.

    Seizing perhaps 5,000 parcels would be an effort exponentially larger effort than seizures to build border fence. After the 2006 Secure Fence Act, federal officials pursued about 300 condemnation cases that were brought against landowners, according to data compiled by the network. Some of those cases remain unresolved a decade later

    The GOP elected an East Coast elitist, you know the type they disparaged for years, rather ironic lol

    I have kin in Houston, friends in NM. You are correct, locals carry. But crap happens and the locals don't always get a chance to shoot back.

    That's a FACT. And they can, too...no worries.
