Holes in the Wall

The Department of Homeland Security is currently marching down the Texas-Mexico border, serving condemnation lawsuits to frightened landowners whose homes will be destroyed to make way for a border wall. However certain properties seem immune from the plans; the wall will come to an end, for no apparent reason, when it intersects locations such as the luxurious River Bend Resort and vast swathes of land owned by billionaire oil magnate Ray L. Hunt.

Along the border, preliminary plans for fencing seem to target landowners of modest means, who will have no say as the government bulldozes their property, while land owned by the rich and Bush-connected remains untouched, leaving gaping holes in the border fence (and rendering it pointless).
