Native American land under siege from feds

To keep up with this militarization of America stemming from the last blog, I came across this piece about Homeland Security trying to force Apaches from their land under the use of eminent domain to build a wall surrounding the Mexican border. Naturally, the Apaches are resisting this, and the feds are responding with harassment and use of overt force in some instances.

I want illegal immigration to be dealt with too, but this isn't the way. Building a wall sends a terrible message that doesn't reflect well on this nation, and I also don't think that it'll work. There'll inevitably be some gap or design flaw, or some corruption in which border patrol people will turn their eyes.
