Series: American Political, Economic, and Security Issues

BISAC: POL012000

Private, tribal, and state-owned land constitutes 70 percent of the border. In order to construct barriers across this land, the administration has used eminent domain, a process by which the government can forcibly seize privately-owned land for public use in exchange for compensation. This book looks at the effect of the border wall on private and tribal landowners.
