    Texas landowners dig in to fight Trumpís border wall

    https://www.apnews.com/0b3d63c524214bbdbfb58ce8f61589f0

    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.

    Yup. Instead of the press covering protesters blocking Canadian tar sands oil pipelines in Nebraska, they will be covering ranchers on tractors blocking Corps of Engineers survey teams in rural TX.

    Trump will become the symbol of epic government overreach.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer faux patriot.

    Why don't these mainly conservative Texans want to stop the rapist hordes crossing their land on a daily basis with their drugs and their murder?

    When illegals who are also criminals shoot at the locals, odds are that the locals would appreciate better security.

    Maybe the whiners in Texas are actually carpetbaggers from up north.

    Dude, are you saying that Americans who want to stay on their own land but may be forced to sell are whiners?

    I wonder how many people they had to interview before they found this woman?
