From the report:

Challenges associated with the exercise of eminent domain to acquire privately owned land, particularly in South Texas, have impeded federal efforts to construct physical barriers along the southwest border in the past and will likely pose the same obstacles to future construction. Landowners whose land was taken through the exercise of eminent domain during prior border fencing efforts told Democratic staff that the federal government did not provide just compensation for their property.
Does anybody in their right mind think that Texas cattlemen would happily divest themselves of their property 'cuz the Feds offer up some cash? If so, where did you get the weed you are smoking?
