Despite Campaign Promise, Biden Admin Seizes Family’s Property in Court to Build Trump’s Border Wall

Despite a campaign promise last year to reverse course on his predecessor’s border wall, President Joe Biden’s administration has seized a Texas family’s land in service of completing Donald Trump’s barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. Immigration advocates in the Lone Star State and beyond have denounced the move.

Some eight months after Biden ruled out such an action in an interview on National Public Radio, his administration seized the Cavazos family’s property on Tuesday.

“There will not be another foot of wall constructed in my administration,” candidate Biden told NPR’s Lula Garcia-Navarro on August 5, 2020, saying his administration would be focused on border protection using “high-tech capacity to deal with it.”

“What about the land confiscations?” Garcia-Navarro cut in.

“End it,” Biden said demonstratively over and over again. “End it. End. End. Stop. Done. Over. Not gonna do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We’re out. We’re not gonna confiscate the land.”

A few weeks later, on August 27, 2020, the Trump administration filed a lawsuit to condemn 6.584 acres of the Cavazos family land in Hidalgo County, Texas. They wanted the land for the border wall.
