More Wall Stuff!
There has been lots of back and forth around the Trump promise of a wall on our Southern border…it is gonna be expensive….Mexico will not pay for it…and the government could do what it does best….steal land from the people.
Rumors are that to pay for this abortion then the budget for the Coast Guard and TSA will be smaller….
Texas landowners along the U.S.-Mexico border have begun receiving notices from the federal government saying that they’re coming to either buy, or take, parcels of land for Trump’s pointless border wall. According to the Texas Observer, landowners are receiving “Declarations of Taking” notices that offer a price for the piece that the government wants. If the landowners refuse that, then they may see those parts of their property taken via eminent domain.
One landowner, Yvette Salinas, got her notice back in January. She’d been dreading it for a while because of George W. Bush’s focus on a border fence. Under Obama, she’d been able to relax a bit because he focused on patrolling and monitoring the border in ways that didn’t include taking land and building a wall.
So Mr. Trump you will steal from the people to get your way? Then sir you are a true Republican. I guess in hindsight it would be cheaper to just steal the property than buy it…..
I find it amazing that a party, the GOP, of limited government has no problem using it to get their way…..like most Repubs hypocrisy rules.
The wall will make the US a more secure nation, right?
Did mention that we, this country, have water on 3 sides? And a lower budget for the Coast Guard that protects our watery borders makes good sense (sarcasm)….
