Texas mayors sue Homeland Security over border fence


OK, this may not concern those of you in Maine, Idaho, Missouri, Florida but it should.

I'm amazed how DHS has morphed into SS.

Am I being extreme? Perhaps, but not by much.
A coalition of community leaders from Texas on Friday sued the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) over construction of a controversial fence on the Southwest border, saying the DHS trampled the rights of property owners in acquiring land for the project. The class-action suit, filed in a federal district court in Washington, accuses Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and DHS officials of violating numerous laws and regulations and effectively coercing Texas property owners to turn over land for the fence without consultation.
