senate Bill S. 263

Should the Federal Gov’t be Prohibited From Using Emergency Powers to Seize Land for the Border Wall?

Argument in favor

The Trump administration’s threat to use emergency powers to seize border residents’ land for President Trump’s promised wall would constitute a violation of property rights. This bill creates protections for border residents against illegal, uncompensated seizure of their land and ensure that wall construction takes stakeholders into account.

While the government has this right I am totally confused. Republicans don’t want government, so now it’s ok to take land for a partisan purpose??? This wall is the biggest misuse of funds. I am so against this wall. It will not stop border crossings.

Yes, this never should never be allowed. It’s bad enough they can seize land through eminent domain. This stupid ass 12th century idea will not stop the real issue. The USA sticking their noses into other countries business instigating regime change creating chaos, causing these people to flee for their lives. tRump created the humanitarian crisis on the border by cutting humanitarian aid in Central America and with his child separation policies.

Argument opposed

DHS and the Trump administration are committed to building the border wall, and they’re rightfully entitled to use all legal means at their disposal — including eminent domain seizures — to get the land they need to complete the wall. This bill would unjustifiably limit the federal government’s authority.

Eminent Domain is already a legal process and established. People will by law receive ample payment for their property. Exception is Native American lands for they are their own sovereignty within this country. So far no wildlife preserves have been harmed with the wall only tree hugger mentality cries.

    No wall. Do not allow Federal government to seize land for border wall that citizens don’t want, taxpayers don’t want, and congress has not authorized. No wall. Wall is a money laundering scheme for trump and trump’s corrupt criminal cronies.

    There are 2 issues. First should the government be allowed to seize land without prior compensation or even agreed to compensation? NO, absolutely not. Second, should the government be able to seize land for a non declared emergency and without a congressionally authorized funding? NO again.

    The wall is a ridiculous endeavor to begin with. It’s definitely not an emergency situation.

    Its not just people’s personal land that needs protection but, also wildlife reservations. The wall would destroy a huge area of preserved wildlife land.

    Congress consistently said “no” to the wall but, this administration circumvented that stand for nothing more than his political gain. The experts have verified that border security would be fiscally more realistically put on place at the entry points with modern technology and other means. Regardless, our Bully in Chief has pushed through the wall by re-allocating funds and beginning a structure that has already destroyed environmental refuges and bulldozed through the will of the people. “Stealing” private lands just compounds is authoritarian abusive damage.

    Absolutely OUR GOVERNMENT SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO SEIZE LAND FROM CITIZENS THAT HAVE WORKED HARD FOR IT. AND NEVER SEIZE LAND FROM INDIGENOUS PEOPLES! Then you are no longer a government. You are criminal assholes. And turning America into a 3rd world country.

    What next? Will the government use U.S. troops to force seizure of land wanted for Trump’s testimony to himself, racism, white supremacy, and cruelty? The Republican White Nationalist Party has already shown laws don’t matter to them and they will attempt to get their way by whatever means necessary. This bill is a must pass even if the government plans to ignore it.

    Seizing land is bad. A wall is stupid. I can afford a drone that can lift a human body. Where’s you wall now? Get it. Walls are stupid unless manned and if you man the area you don’t need a wall. Let’s just do a fair and common sense non partisan immigration reform/policy.

    The majority of Americans oppose this wall. All reputable academic institutions who have studied its impact on the environment, border security, and international relations have clearly said this wall is a bad idea. Now this politician wants to seize individual property to force it to be built? No.

    The Federal Government has absolutely no right claiming lands that are privately or publicly owned for as asinine a reason as a wall that will never be completed, and isn’t protecting anything. At best, it’s a 20 year project. Until we see 20 years of projections for plans, costs, manpower, it needs to stop.
