The federal government sued Monday to get on land owned by a Texas city whose mayor has been highly critical of a planned U.S.-Mexico border fence.Let me make this simple for Mr. Foster. Ive even drawn pictures:
The lawsuit was filed by U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton against the city of Eagle Pass, Justice Department spokesman Andrew Ames said.
The city's mayor, Chad Foster, serves as chairman of the Texas Border Coalition. The coalition consists of several border mayors, business officials and residents, and has been fighting the Homeland Security Department's border fence construction plans.
Members say the agency has failed to sufficiently consider concerns about the effects on environment, residents' property and the binational way of life along the border and ignored local officials' suggestions for alternatives.
As you can plainly see, the other towns should proceed with building the wall and if Eagle Pass doesn't, it will become a funnel town for the illegal invasion, which will have a more devastating effect on the wildlife, and local economy. A picture is worth a thousand words.
Update and bump: Via Wizbang, The judge ruled in the feds favor. It only took a day to decide.
