    Build the wall and deport all illegal aliens. Enough of the insanity. In addition to the border wall and supporting technology, we (U.S) need to remove all incentive for illegals and/or employers that hire them. Start with: Require E-verify, heavily fine employers and jail repeat offenders hiring illegal aliens, End birthright citizenship (Two illegals do not make a citizen), Require a birth certificate to attend public schools (illegals should not be able to consume taxpayer funded resources), Charge anyone providing aid, assisting and/or funding these illegals with aiding and abetting as well as human smuggling. This includes churches as religion is not an excuse to break the law.

    Notice NBC fake news only reports a story on a few landowners that don't want the border wall but fail to report the majority of landowners who have completely supported the border wall going up! Drain the swamp! Trump 2020! MAGA! Secure our borders!

    Sorry, landowners, but national security is the one and only legitimate reason to violate private property. This idea of a libertarian utopia, whereby, the only borders that exist are property lines just isn't going to happen. Take your imminent domain check and buy new land.

    Fine! If the land owners don't want the wall on their property, just build it around behind them and let them worry all by themselves about the problems on their property when they want to call for call for the law to come and put themselves in danger to protect them . You never hear this kind of crap from the news as hundreds of thousands of acres a year are taken by eminent domain and covered by roads so why are they making a such a big deal about taking it for the wall?

    That wall will never rebuilt, it is a false promise out of the mouth of a false god, Trump knows that building that wall is going to be next to Impossible, and when his base finally realizes it's not going to be built he'll just blame the Democrats Trump does things like this knowing that they will never get done so he can blame the Democrats this is what Trump has done his entire life he makes promises and when they fall through he blames somebody else that is why he's filed bankruptcy 6 times that is why he's been sued for thousand times for fraud

    Eminent domain, land acquisition, compulsory purchase, resumption, resumption/compulsory acquisition, or expropriation is the power of a state, provincial, or national government to take private property for public use.

A lot of people in Texas voted for him. Now you get to deal with his wishes. Don't like the results of your prior decision??? then vote him out of office!!

    This is so messed up. This is how they stole land from the indians. The government does not own the earth. However, that land is near the water, by 2021 it will be under the water. Look at it as a blessing from god. Move to higher ground. Rebuild and let the wall and the surrounding earth sink from erosion.. Everything Trump builds will fail. Wait for it…

    Hey slavery is a real thing here in Texas Google searches show how many slaves have been set free that’s just a fraction of what the half million in captivity here. We have 5,000, 000 or 30% of the entire population of Guatemala here in TX. We need 8,000,000 removed with the National guard, we need help with these invaders.

    My grandmother said “don’t sell this land”. Please check the owner ship of that parcel and how long they had it in their family. It is presented like it was handed down from the grandmother to her. All the other lots next to her kinda indicates to me that she bought it and her grandmother liked it.

    Andrew Yang is right. The jobs that Trump brought in aren't enough. There should be a universal basic income so even the unemployed can afford their fix.

    Trump's wall is a big hindrance to cheap drugs badly needed by addicts.

    The truth is this wall will effect a very small percentage of drugs and illegals coming I to the county. FACT: 65% of all illegals in the US are here by overstaying their Visa .. and as far as drugs are concerned… either make them ALL legal and tax them!! Or make all the drugs (besides) pot illegal!! But as of now there is too much money made in the fight of drugs.. so looks like we have to get used to it!! Sad.

    A fence is not doing to stop a multi billion dollar industry(drugs). And if you believe this you are unrealistic.
    If you support this wall you support the government taking US citizens lands. The more we allow the government to practice eminent domain the more we are at risk of that happening to the rest of us. It doesn't matter if they hiding behind the excuse of National Security. Drugs coming to this country because they are people in power that allow it to happen. Can't believe there are people still out there thinking that people in power can't be bought

I say if you all want to give your children's future away to some Illegal then go right ahead and do it in California.
