Federal court gives U.S. access to Texas city's land in border fence dispute

WASHINGTON – Leaders in a small Texas border city felt blindsided Wednesday after learning that a judge had ordered public land turned over temporarily to the federal government as it works on a border fence.
U.S. District Judge Alia Moses Ludlum ordered the city of Eagle Pass to “surrender” the 233 acres of city-owned land by Tuesday. The Justice Department had sued for access to the land on Monday. Ludlum's ruling came the same day, before the city could muster a challenge.

Cool Keep that fence going

Keep it going folks...and perhaps we should connect it to the high voltage lines as a warning to Mexicans and perhaps Al Queda that sneaking into America can be bad for your health.

Why would they feel blindsided? They should have seen this coming for months.
