A quick solution to defiant landowners along the border

Keeping that premise in mind, if Ms. Cavazos doesn’t want to negotiate a deal to have the wall on her property, let’s pull the line back until we reach a piece of land that can be made available and build it there. In other words, all of the property owners along the border who don’t wish to support protecting our border can be put on the other side of the wall. This doesn’t need to be a cruel or inhumane solution. We’ll be sure to provide a port of entry every so often along the fence and have roads running along the outside so property owners can reach them. Assuming the landowners are all legal U.S. citizens, they will have no trouble getting through customs at the port of entry for any business they need to conduct in the interior of the country. (It just might take a bit longer if there are a lot of people waiting to get through.)


A humane and heeelarious solution.

Given how often Eminent Domain is abused to line private pockets, I have to wonder why it can't be used on an issue of national security.

Be that as it may, I think this proposal is a wonderful shortcut.
