For our 2019 Symposium, Texas Hispanic Journal of Law & Policy will host a Latino Lunch Series every Tuesday of February with speakers discussing various legal and policy issues on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Border Zones II: This Land is Whose Land?

This panel will will discuss the complex legal, environmental and eminent domain issues present at Texas’ border zones. Many Texans have felt the impact of the border wall with land agents assessing the land between Texas and Mexico in the spring of 2007. The previous visits launched the most aggressive seizure of private land by the federal government in decades. What impact will the President’s talk of a border wall have on property owners? How will lawyers and scientists predict the environmental impact of a border wall? This panel will discuss the legal, property and environmental implications of a border wall in 2019. Speakers include Professor John Echeverria (Vermont Law School), Nick Laurent (Baron Adler), Roy Brandys (Baron Adler), Kiah Collier (Texas Tribune), and Professor Tim Keitt (UT).
