"To you. It's going to be a no-man's-land to border patrol's enforcement zone. They will clear. Everything agent told me why would we lead even one Bush for someone to hide under customs and border? Protection denies that it plans to completely clear cut the land. It also says that property owners who need access to the land between the river and the wall can have it about I fly center doesn't have a lot of options to stop the wall. The federal government can claim private land for public use through a legal process called eminent domain. The government has used eminent domain many times before to build other stretches of the border wall under previous administrations Trevino right gets that. But she was shocked when last year she found workman wielding chainsaws, cutting down trees and mowing down brush to survey the land, imagine going home to your house when day and finding. People cutting down your trees knocking down your fence and destroying your your yard Trevino right says that's really the crux of her complaint. It's not really about the butterflies the birds and the butterflies can fly over the wall. The issue is the seizure of private property. The issue is the violation of due process. Those are the real issues. So the butterflies center sued the lawsuit claims those workers legally entered the sanctuary and destroyed property, and here's the important part Trevino right says that clearcutting happened before congress approved funding for wall construction legal experts say the federal government has a lot of leeway when it comes to eminent domain attorney, Alan Ackerman, an expert on eminent domain says the government does have to meet one really important requirement before taking private lands. The federal government has tremendous discretion. But that discretion is only based upon approval from the legislative body and once the federal. Government has the discretion. That's pretty hard to beat them. In other words, congress has to fund the project before where it can get underway. The funding eventually did come through. The government has filed a motion to dismiss the suit see VP declined to comment on the case since litigation is ongoing Trevino right says she understands construction will probably move for in any way. Still there's a lot of open questions like how much of their land. We'll get cut how much money will the government pay out in compensation, and how long would that process? Take and the big question can the butterfly center, even stay open after all that. I mean, we have long term plans for this place. More not gonna just pack up and abandoned that come February workers will start construction on a wall in Hidalgo county, whether a barrier will eventually stretch the entire US Mexico border that deal is far from done.
