ancestral land of the Tamez Family

"On April 16, this crushing news came in from the Lipan Apache Women
Defense organization: “A federal judge in Brownsville, TX issued an
order today granting the federal government's request to condemn the
ancestral land of the Tamez Family, who are Lipan Apaches… As of
today, it is in the possession of the United States Department of
Homeland Security.”

The purpose of this land seizure is to allow the government to put up
Bush’s 2,000 miles of fences and walls along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Yet the irony is that this Big-Brother Department – created in the
midst of fear under Bush, is now under the control of the Obama
administration, with in effect, the same policies, the same objectives
and the same results."
