Oh…and it’s just an access road that leads to a staging area.

Thanks – I’ll forward that on
From: (b) (6) Sent: Wednesday, March 19, 2008 10:49 AM To: (b) (6) Subject: RE: El Paso denies feds access to road for border fence We are still working through the significance of the vote. It is my understanding Congressman Reyes called Chief Aguilar last night on his personal cell-phone to discuss the issue. I believe it is a purely symbolic vote by the city council and, since it has to do with existing fencing, shouldn’t have a major impact. That being said, we will continue to work with the City of El Paso to find an appropriate solution. There are still avenues left to be pursued.

(b) and (b) (6) (6) Can you tell us whether this action by the El Paso city council has a significant practical effect on fence replacement and construction. In other words, does the lack of access to the road require DHS to go to federal court and use the power of eminent domain—or is there a “work-around” (i.e., another access road that doesn’t belong to the City of El Paso within a reasonable distance).
Can you let us know? Thanks

The Associated Press EL PASO, Texas The country's largest border city won't let federal authorities use an access road to replace border fencing. The El Paso City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to block the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Albuquerque district, from using the access road that cuts across city property. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has proposed replacing existing fencing in downtown El Paso and building 56.7 miles of new fencing in largely rural areas east of the city. Cities and property owners in South Texas that have previously denied the federal government access to land to build fencing are being sued by the government.
