How the mighty have fallen. A Donald Trump supporter from Texas has learned that Trump’s border wall will likely put her house on the Mexico side of the wall.
This isn’t the first time the American government has clashed with Americans that live on the border. In the past, they have appropriated their land, and in the case of Pat Bell, her house may now reside on the Mexico side of the wall.
Take one family who had their farm cut in half because one half of their farm was located in Mexico.
“I was very angry, I just kept saying, how can they do that? How is that possible in the United States that they can do this?” D’Ann Loop of Brownsville recalled. “They put up a fence in front of our land and then keep us in here — lock us in. I didn’t understand. I was very — I was floored and flabbergasted.”
After losing their court battle, the entire farm is now classified as part of Mexico.
“It left us no property on the U.S. side of the border wall, including my house,” she explained. “Everything was behind — on the Mexican side of the U.S. border fence,” with her husband adding they enter the U.S. through a locked gate.
“You punch your code in or you come behind the border wall, there is a feeling of isolation,” Ray Loop explained.
As for Bell, she will likely face similar treatment. After voting for Trump, she has now learned that her house will likely be on the Mexico side of the border. However, she made it clear that she will fight the government if she has to.
“Absolutely I would go to the people who are in charge and, you hate to say I would get a lawyer, but if it comes to that issue, you would,” she explained.
