52 Starr Co. Descendants to Fight US Govt over Eminent Domain Claim
RIO GRANDE CITY – The first type of fencing or border barrier may show up in Starr County as early as August.
Customs and Border Protection officials say the locations will be five miles east of Escobares and near a tract of land part of the Lower Rio Grande Valley Wildlife Refuge.
Property owners in the area are devastated knowing they’ll be losing land that has been passed down from their families for generations.
A family of 52 members, who have owned land for more than 100 years, is being sued by the federal government for the proposed border wall.
The entire family was invited to appear in court to face a federal judge in July.
