    Re: Texas landowners dig in to fight Trumpís border wall

    The one skill Trump has that I cannot deny is a remarkable ability to get conservatives to look the other way on every principle they have ever claimed to have. By 2020, the whole GOP will be Progressive, Nationalists.

    Nothing sadder than watching a bunch of people who pride themselves on being able to spot sham and then doubling down on the grifter selling it due to their own dumbass pride.

    At least we know where one TX senator stands on eminent domain:

    Margaret Chadbourn@MLChadbourn

    More Cruz... “So securing the border is a legitimate area for eminent domain where landowners would get reasonable and just compensation...” arguing land for the wall falls under public use. @TXCapTonight @SpecNewsATX @SpecNewsSA @SpectrumNewsDC

    HIDALGO, Texas (AP) ó As President Donald Trump travels to the border in Texas to make the case for his $5.7 billion wall, landowner Eloisa Cavazos says she knows firsthand how the project will play out if the White House gets its way.

    The federal government has started surveying land along the border in Texas and announced plans to start construction next month. Rather than surrender their land, some property owners are digging in, vowing to reject buyout offers and preparing to fight the administration in court.

    Hard working land owners & ranchers like this guy will make sure this wall goes no where.

    Good for them. Exercising your rights as an American to oppose government action is perfectly acceptable.

    Not all landowners oppose the wall. Bottom line some support the wall some don't.

    People way out there, ranchers and land owners? You got a better guess because that one was absurd.
