Wow! Civil Disobedience on Building the Border Fence- Some Texas Border Officials Denying Access to THEIR land

woo-hoo! THIS is what all the people in the path of the Trans-Texas Corridor ought to do too. Government want to come in and just TAKE your land for a boondoggle? Don't give them the right to do it by signing any papers and TAKE THEM TO COURT.

Mayors along the Texas-Mexico border have begun a quiet protest of the federal government's plans to build a fence along the border: Some are refusing access to their land.

Mayors in Brownsville, Del Rio and El Paso have denied or limited access to some parts of city property to Department of Homeland Security workers assigned to begin surveys or other preliminary work on the fence Congress has authorized to keep out illegal immigrants. Eagle Pass has denied a request from federal officials to build a portion of the wall within its city limits.

Brownsville Mayor Pat Ahumada said Tuesday that he refused two weeks ago to sign documents granting federal workers permission to begin work if it was to be on city property. Del Rio granted limited access, and El Paso allowed workers only on its outskirts, said Monica Weisberg Stewart of the Texas Border Coalition, a group that represents local officials.

"This is exercising our rights. This is our property," Ahumada said. "We are not going to make it easy for them."
