Here's a nice look at how Homeland Security gets the job done:
Texas mayors and business leaders filed a class-action lawsuit Friday alleging Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff hoodwinked landowners into waiving their property rights for construction of a fence along the Mexican border.
Members of the Texas Border Coalition said Chertoff did not fairly negotiate compensation with landowners for access to their land for six-month surveys to choose fence sites.
"They are determined to build a wall to appease mid-America," [Brownsville Mayor Pat] Ahumada said. "This is a political problem that's being addressed at the expense of all the border communities."
