Margo Tamez, and Eminent Domain on the Border.
A coalition of Native Americans, border residents, and community groups continue the fight for their lands in the Rio Grande Valley. The Department of Homeland Security says it will seize Apache and other private lands using eminent domain to build the border wall and militarize the zone.
We hear from poet and scholar, Margo Tamez, about current and historical struggles along the US-Mexico International Boundary. You’ll also hear excerpts from the documentary film “Border Crossings/ Cruzando Fronteras”, by Heather Lares of Pan Left Productions.
