Border Residents Receive Federal Notice of Land Purchase

U.S./ MEXICO BORDER (KFXV) — Residents along the border are starting to receive notices from the federal government about purchasing their land to build the proposed border wall.

One family near Los Ebanos told Fox News that they received a letter from the department of Homeland Security a week before the president took office about the purchase of their land at $2,900 dollars an acre. The Salinas family said that if they refused to sell their 16 acres near the Rio Grande River, their land could be confiscated. Other families in the area received similar notices.
