    The 'wall' is not a bad plan. Take the land.

  2. Scott B says:

    Trump 2020 Hey let’s put the stupid sob on the other side of the wall then see how they will like that. The Government will win in Court on this but it cost you and I the taxpayers more money it’s time to take our Country back

  3. wiremonkey12 says:

    I can't believe anyone living on the border wouldn't want a wall, which leads me to believe they are making money somehow off there not being one maybe. Also, if the people on the border not wanting the wall are from mexico originally then that would explain a lot.

  4. Popenator 7 says:

    BUILD THE WALL!! NO MATTER WHAT,BUILD THAT WALL!

  5. shane white says:

    Who are these people, fox blows

  6. Dilan Currier says:

    Go right down the street in front of their house

  7. Little Dove Corr says:

    HEY DEMOCRATS TAKE WHAT EVER THEY WANT… ROADS HIGHWAYS ……

    WALL IS SECURITY ….. TAKE THE LITTLE BIT OF LAND. ONLY ANTI AMERICA ANTI CONSTITUTION PEOPLE WOULD FIGHT. BUT SWAMP IS SWAMP. """"CHECK THEY COULD BE PROFFITING FROM ILLEGALS. SO WANT IT LEFT OPEN ."""""""

  8. John Churchill says:

    The Cartels pay some land owners. Why would they want a wall

  9. Citizen EU says:

    Let's hope the NRA supports those land owners to use their guns to protect their property.

  10. Citizen EU says:

    Will the Mexicans increase their payment for the wall?

  11. Jason Ryan Wilson says:

    Katherine is ignorant. They will always give 5 times fair market price! Ignorance is bliss.

  12. Raymond Holder says:

    LOL COMMON FOX. THEIR IS A DIFFERENCE. THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO DONT WANT THE WALL. ARE ANTI AMERICANS, UNO THE ONES WHO BEND A KNEE, WHO ADVOCATE HATE TOWARDS USA. UNO THE ONES THAT ARE TEACHING YOUR KIDS THAT THERE IS MORE THAN 2 GENDERS AND THE TEACHERS WHO TEACH THE KIDS TO BE ASHAMED OF USA HISTORY. WAKE UP TO THIS BS. WAKE UP NOW. TRUMP 2020,24,28,32….

  13. Jay Blacq says:

    The hypocrisy is Amazing. Had this been a democratic president doing this, Texas republicans would cry and say their rights are being taken.

    The Texan Governor has no backbone.
    Also these same "conservatives" cried when South African government was taking land by eniment domain.

  14. ChristianBolt says:

    If you live on the boarder too bad. This is a reasonable use of eminent domain.

  15. E Z E says:

    Political hack on the right.

  16. Samual Crocket says:

    Take the land, build the wall, and put Katherine Mangu-Ward over it. It is the right thing to do. President Trump is restoring American Sovereignty and Citizenship. The Border Wall is far more important than any road they could ever build.

  17. Dark Truth says:

    Idiot, the wall WILL work. 99% is fine

  18. elftribe1 says:

    Ok lets make a comprise. You dont have to let the government build on your land but your responsible for every illegal that passes thru your land

  19. scot woodz says:

    The wall will work. Too bad so sad.
    Very biased never Trumper.
    So they would not want any sense of security?
    Cities all over the country do this all of the time. If your in the way of progress…they go to court and a judge will decide. If you have land on the border expect this to happen.

  20. christy contois says:

    Build the wall give him a shitload of money tell me the f**** move somewhere else bye all the money they're saving right now from immigration it's already dropped 30% so give him a f**** s*** ton of money and tell him the f*** off and take their land

  21. joe budi says:

    Give us a name and phone number to call the owners and tell them how we think??!!!

  22. 59silvereagle says:

    Oh , by the way THE WALL OR WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO CALL IT WORKS !!!!! ESPECIALLY WITH SENSORS, DRONES, AND CAMERAS !! By the time ANYONE happens to make it down the wall BORDER PATROL IS WAITING !! THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP !!!! ???

  23. Danny says:

    Wow, I thought I was watching CNN! If you buy land along the US-Mexico border, are you really that surprised the federal government won’t access it at some point? Sell your land in the interest of national security or give them access to build the wall!

  24. Chatla Suresh says:

    Private land is in Homeland of USA and cannot be ignoring the Border Wall for Homeland the National Interest.
    But the private gives his/her land for free to be worried? They get their fair pay and it's a Government Homeland Border Wall project. Take the land USA.

  25. GREG Torchia says:

    That’s right it’s called eminent domain they use it on streets and personal property all the time for the good of the many -not just a few

  26. GREG Torchia says:

    Fox And the Murdoch brothers are no friends of the American public and you can beto the ranch on that

  27. Common Sense says:

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just ask Mexico if we can go on to their land for part of the wall?

  28. Steven J says:

    Build the wall !

  29. Hayotowin says:

    At least I know the chick with "reason" is a far left radical.

  30. Dona Herndon says:

    Didn’t Obama seize farmers property, and it wasn’t used for anything.

  31. Deborah DeLario says:

    Two very uninformed women, fake news against a duly elected President Donald J Trump. ????? idiots the poor would most likely sell and have a step up. Ridiculous reporting!

  32. Genna Tuelz says:

    This is easily remedied. Have any landowner refusing to allow the wall be responsible for any illegal aliens caught crossing the border on their land. Be it fines or jail time.

  33. moriart13 says:

    Goverment eizing land USSR style,

  34. Hillbilly Hollar says:

    They arent "trying" they are succeeding,and im glad…imminent domain is the United States Governments Legal Right to enact, for reasons involving National Security or just for stretching our infrastructure into previous un-accessed land areas that they see as crucial for our developing.The Land owners trying to Stop the implementation of the wall being erected, should have to house the captured mexicans jumping the border, after the border patrol gains fingerprints and extracts DNA of course (,to give them a taste of the criminals their assisting to come into our country), for the rest of us to deal with…I remember when BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMAS Bureau of Land Mngmnt was setting massive fires, burning out ranchers and shooting cattle in Oklahoma so Obama could seize their generations old farms that had been in their families posession for hundreds of yrs ,just so he could turn around and Lease all that captured Land to china….OBAMA is a Terrorist and should be tried and hung for treason…What Trump is doing on our southern border is a miracle and he should be given the Nobel Peace Prize for his humane way of implementing the laws that we as Americans are bound by…TRUMP 20 ???

  35. Jim Spencer says:

    I want a border wall, I'm sorry they dont support it, Force them out and build the wall.

  36. Bill Thompson says:

    Build the wall now!

  37. Hillbilly Hollar says:

    HEY KENNEDY,,GROW A PAIR AND TELL YOUR LIBERAL GALPAL TO SUCKIT…YOU KNOW DAM GOOD AND WELL THAT THE WALL WORKS AND EMINENT DOMAIN IS A PRACTICE USED SINCE THE BEGINNING OF OUR COUNTRY…PLAYING LIBERAL DRESS UP ISNT APPEALING TO ANYONE..

  38. mountainfolks says:

    These Texas land owners show who is paid off by the cartels. Traitors and betrayers. Investigate them all.

  39. Luke Lyons says:

    Literally goes against what conservatives believe about government and the over reaching powers.

  40. Silver Chopsticks says:

    While I would fight eminent domain, I wouldn't want illegal trespassers crossing the border on my land either. Take the fair price and shut up for the good of the nation. The price will be more than the land is worth in Texas. Go build a home nearby where land is just as cheap. There's a LOT of land in Texas, people.

  41. just in says:

    They will have to move if in the way of our nations security. Build the WALL.

  42. Chad Calderone says:

    It happens all the time, long before Trump , honey.

  43. reality check says:

    I don't think the Federal Government even needs to declare eminent domain….. all land bordering the United States is owned by the Federal government !!
    That's a little known fact maybe they don't want you to be aware of.

  44. Ken Zahora says:

    <yawn> non issue

  45. S Mclaughlin says:

    Anti-Trump host…build that wall President Trump…this host is and always has been an idiot…this is a loony left supported host…

  46. Non ya says:

    @2:00 – Typical leftists. Build the wall and deport all illegal aliens. Utilize eminent domain – just as done when building a highway and be done with it. Enough of the insanity.

  47. william collinsworth says:

    You would think that our land on the border would be Greatly Valued, oh any privet owner that will not allow America to build a wall is a traitors! Think about All the Blood Already She'd to get Us here!"

  48. T B says:

    Not a surprise; he’s supported eminent domain since his day one.

  49. Echo Charlie says:

    Using eminent domain to purchase land for national security is pretty much the only justifiable use of eminent domain.

  50. Michael Yeager says:

    How can you be so Stupid?

  51. John Brunner says:

    Take Mexican soil and build it around the U.S properties.. done

  52. Texas Cowpatti says:

    Oh c'mon Fox……this sounds like a CNN report!

  53. Thanks Obama says:

    Likely Koch Bros buddies that Want Open Borders…

  54. Pedro Reyes says:

    What a pair of Incompetent dumb full of bias brats their adrenocrome is probably out

  55. jerry sanders says:

    This is one issue eminent domain should win the day America needs the wall and the wall does work she is lying.

  56. J R says:

    Well, the government seized land EVERYDAY to widen roads. Fox doesn’t cover that in a negative light.

  57. Dawn Witmer says:

    GOOD ! Build that WALL !!!

  58. Dawn Witmer says:

    Build that WALL! Is this FOX or CNN ???

  59. Dawn Witmer says:

    GO TRUMP GO! Build that WALL !!

  60. Dawn Witmer says:

    Omfg Fix! Us this CNN ! Trump WILL NOT be Impeached! WAKE UP! OMFG ??! WE WANT THE WALL !!

  61. Jesse Wilson says:

    We aren’t Tejas we are Texas .we defeated the Mexicans at the battle of San jacinto in less than 18 minutes with less than 200 soldiers in general Sam Houston army. The Mexican army was 800 more or Less. The news people when referring to Texas it is Texas not tejas ????????????????

  62. Roy Marable says:

    Before their were roads and the interstate. The land was privately owned.
    The only way we can have roads and needed border wall. Is thru eminent domain. The government does take your land. BUT!!! You are always paid above fair market value for your property.
    Unfortunately some people purchased land along the border with the ONLY intention of stopping the building of the border wall. Others want to receive a thousand times what they paid for the land.
    So go ahead cry. Scream that Saint Hillary won the election. Tell us how you hate our great President Donald Trump.
    Get you 30 minutes of fame crying on TV.
    The end of the day. You land will be used by the government for necessary roads, schools, hospitals or a border wall. You WILL BE PAID MORE THAN THE LAND IS WORTH.
    Go cry to someone who cares.

  63. Mike Speelman says:

    Maybe those people who live close near the border have a reason? Maybe they cooperate with all kinds of smugglers?
    Or are they just grabbers, who want to exploit this situation???
    And why do they have (low value) houses, that are practically built on the border itself????
    Sell them out for a “reasonable” price and if they refuse, just kick them out! The border is too important for the country!
    And this interviewed lady expressed her bias with her remark: “a wall that doesn’t work”!! Probably another sick socialist, that crawls around near the border?

  64. Gutter Sails says:

    Trump just blocked a bill that would have cut the cost of pharmaceuticals by half. Why? I thought that was one of his campaign promises.

  65. Brian Rowe says:

    They have some lefty’s living on the border do they, TOO F’n BAD for them…

  66. Robbie K555 says:

    BORDER WALL…. how do they own property in mexico? borders have right of way for roads to enforce them….more fake news

  67. Hunter BidenForPres says:

    SOLUTION: Don't build the wall where people have land. Just build where they don't. Eventually those people who own the land will be begging for a remedy to that situation.

  68. Kris Planker says:

    The border should be a highway, anyway, so vehicles can patrol it. We need a bidirectional overpass with a pile of rusty scrap metal under it, stretching across the nation. Turn the Mexico side into a national park, require ID to enter or leave.

  69. Hunter BidenForPres says:

    It's hurting poor people more? Poor people who've bought land somehow over the border, seems like a small percentage of people. And I've been down there. There are VERY few people. And people in Texas, for the most part are petrified by what can come across that border. I was in El Paso and talked to people who hadn't been in Mexico in like five years, because they're right next to Juarez, where people were, at one time, being burned alive in drug-cartel crossfire. Yeah, just a few holes in this fishnet.

  70. Mike Reiley says:

    Build the wall to bad for Texas land owner they are giving up a small sliver a land to keep America safe.

  71. Thelma Parker says:

    Seize it!

  72. Thelma Parker says:

    No she is talking about a libetal women who bought land to go against the wall!

  73. jjjjbuddy says:

    you two bitches AND FOX suckS. MAGA

  74. George Ayers says:

    You know , so what it's about National Security!

  75. Dennis Penning says:

    It’s fake news. The wall doesn’t take up much space. A patriot would gladly give up that sliver of land

  76. Dick The Dorkwing says:

    I could swear I was just watching CNN.

  77. mark haas says:

    There's a better solution. If they won't sell, Just wall off the land-owners on the U.S. side of their property, so that they are effectively living on the Mexican side of the barrier… even though their property won't change at all and are still technically on U.S. soil. Many of these land-owners ( not all of them) are probably getting a cut from the Cartels to use their properties for running drugs and human trafficking. Others have probably been threatened with violence if they don't comply with the Cartels.

  78. ice9 says:

    The govt is BUYING private land it needs to keep millions of invading illegal felons out of our country. Stop your negative slant against the Wall, the citizens support it! FOX News — Phony & Biased.

  79. sandra burke says:

    Better than SELLING US LAND TO CHINA. BELGUIM ONWS PART OF US INTERSTATES. ANOTHER INTERSTATE WAS IN THE WORKS TO SELL TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. WE HEAR NOTHING OF THOSE SALES. ASK A TRUCKER

  80. Subbie ALM87 says:

    Kennedy loves covering Fake News.

  81. N Ex says:

    So when are you going to start singing and dancing?

  82. N Ex says:

    No private land owner is going to stop the government from building the wall any more than they could stop the government building a highway.

  83. N Ex says:

    "Attempting"??? This is the way it works. Highways, dams, military sites, etc. Why is this even a story?

  84. David Blackfoot says:

    Fox news lies again. And Kennedy is nothing mouth than a lying head.

  85. vel wheel says:

    My property has easements for power lines, and roads. What your telling us is the border does not an easement?

  86. Trevor Grindz says:

    The border is important. Screw private land owners. They MUST submit for the sake of us all.

  87. C N says:

    Americans should feel lucky they live in the U.S.A. because if this situation was in China the land would be seized and the land owner would be evicted with nothing.

  88. TheMrProtocol says:

    Eminent Domain is immoral and evil. Trump doesn't escape criticism for this.

  89. Tracy Graf says:

    Take there land..build the wall..or put up arrows..illegals..enter here..stop by the land owner and have a soda..a piece of pie..and a piece of his wife too..dont forget to say thank you?

  90. Tracy Graf says:

    Kennedy like dogs

  91. L Smith says:

    This is not about covering up and obscuring. It is about taking enough land to build the border. We don't have a country without a border. Both of these speakers clearly displayed their political bias in their comments. Another point: many property owners along the border have been there for a long time, but there are also those who bought land in recent years precisely to hold out as long as possible and get a big payoff from the government. In other words, speculators.

  92. Margherit A says:

    Only drug lord would want to build a house on the border with Mexico. Katie, are you kidding?

  93. Dean Dusi says:

    Brilliance? That guest was a moron.

  94. Jrridermd75 says:

    Build the wall stop complaining…

  95. Benghali In Platforms says:

    This is why Libertarians are mongs

  96. David Hanson says:

    Click bait headline. Dont believe a word of it. Not a rational position.

  97. Mr.Wellington Von Duke III says:

    Ok don't wanna play ball alright we'll build the rest of the wall and have the opening where all the illegals cross in YOUR backyard and as for YOU government pay them % over value.

  98. P Gray says:

    Emminent Domaine will pevail

  99. Joy Joy says:

    It's funny to see how much control Mexican government has over the powers to be in the United States. It's literally like the United States is bargaining with them in in the country and out of the country. Something isn't right. America is nolonger America, maybe that's what they've forgotten to tell the american PEOPLE

  100. Vance Sloan says:

    I'll just say it. If all the Texans that lived along the border were shooting .308 rounds at Mexicans as they tried to illegally cross into USA, we wouldn't need a wall. They would stay away. Trust me.
