Well here we go... DECLARATIONS OF TAKING.
resistancereport.com...

As the Texas Observer recently reported, landowners who own property near the United States/Mexico border are now receiving “declarations of taking” that order them to either accept a lowball offer for their land, or have it seized by eminent domain. One of those homeowners is Yvette Salinas, who owns 16 acres of land in Los Ebanos, in Hidalgo County, Texas.



In January, Salinas received a 21-page document from the federal government explaining that 1.2 acres of her land was needed in order to build the border wall that became a cornerstone of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. She could either accept $2,900 for the land, or have it seized by the government in order to construct the wall after a likely lawsuit.


I haven't verified the story, but this will be a terrible hardship on thousand of land owners.

Here is the actual document:
Declaration of Taking

I did a search and didn't see this as being posted yet, so if it has let me know.

Great news if true. This is the exact reason that this law was intended for and the court will correct any unjust price offered. Let's get that wall built. a reply to: Julie Washington

He has not seized her property.

She currently has 16 acres.

Donald needs 1.2 acres.

She will lose a little bit of land down by her back fence.

Another crap headline that is simply BS.

Without knowing where the land is, it is difficult to determine if $2,900.00 is reasonable.

Just another hit piece!

Boring!

I saw this one coming a while ago. Trump is open and honest about how much he's in favor of eminent domain.

Strange position to have for someone who's supposed to be against Government Overreach.

But as they say, power corrupts.

Government abuse is ok as long as someone else is the target of it I guess.

That is not reasonable. For 1.5 acres of my land I wouldn't let go for less than $7,000. But it's not for sale.

I have seen near the border prices in texas of less than 500 an acre... so unless it is prime real estate far from the drug runners its a good price for 1.2 acres.

Build on, Trump! Make America a country with borders again! Make people come here legally, through proper channels, and work hard for the American Dream as my family did, as I do; instead of letting illegals suck down our welfare dollars!

Oh, and Congress? Declare an official language already sheesh.

So let's hope she didn't mortgage her property and lose acreage that puts her upside-down.

No mall or corpprate pipe line?


I think this maybe the intent of eminent domain.

What you determine to be the value of your land and the actual value usually differ, and usually not in your favor, just sayin'.

The letter is dated Jan 12th.

The court papers are 2008.

This must be for the 2006 wall law.

Land at 500/ac is most likely based on the purchase of a track of several thousand acres.

Generally in Texas, smaller tracts are valued at a higher price, even if located next to a large tract valued less.

Yes!

A nice big fence to keep out the riff raff. Great idea.

I could sell tickets to watching the fence being built.

Check your link for dates.

Trump had nothing to do with this.

False Title.

as it has already been said, but i'll say it again, this is not from trumps administration. the documents are dated before trump took office, document date is jan 12 2017, trump was swore in jan 20, 2017.

the seizure order/ court filing took place in 2008. plus where is the source for the external quotes, it is part of T&C to give links to them.

another thing, why is the contact info for the government blacked out in the letter? if it is a public office what is being hidden. maybe a name that is related to the obama or bush administration?

this thread should be binned,just some trumped up fake news, get the pun.

ETA: well i found the link to the article, it was in the document, what a weird place to put the link.
also they government can't just take the land with out paying for it, from the article.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that DHS could acquire Flores’ land through eminent domain without compensation. The government would, in fact, have to provide compensation for the land. The Observer regrets the error.
