Border Patrol Taking Land Through Eminent Domain for Border Surveillance

This report from KGUN9 On Your Side summarizes what is happening. I have extensive experience opposing the Border Patrol using eminent domain for the border fence and other surveillance activities. The most important issue in these cases is often severance damages, or the loss in value of the property the owner retains after a portion of their property is turned into a security outpost. The property devaluation is similar to that experienced by those who have a prison sited near their property.
