Trump may be gone, but the fight against his border wall goes on
BDNews24 says a tiny village with fewer than 300 residents, Los Ebanos sits on the edge of the Rio Grande. Now the community has found itself in the middle of a sharp debate over shifting immigration policies as a surge in crossings has reached levels not seen in more than two decades and as the Texas governor has vowed to further fortify the border.
During a special session that ended late last month, state lawmakers approved nearly $2 billion in funding for border security.
Many residents like Garcia are vocal opponents of a wall cutting across their properties, believing that it is both inhumane and also would barricade their binational and bicultural village from the rest of the border region. More than 100 landowners like her have been sued by the federal government, their land earmarked for parts of a wall that polls show most South Texans do not want.
