Would a border wall could force a Texas park to close?

Recommended Posts

In a memo to the U.S. Border Patrol, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has warned that building a border wall through Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park could force it to close. The Texas Tribune reports that an October 2017 memo warns the proposed wall “would certainly call into question whether TPWD could continue to safely operate the property as a state park, and thereby possibly causing the site to revert back to the original Grantors’ heirs.” The park, which was sold for $1 to the state in 1944 by the family of the late U.S. Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, is a top birdwatching destination. Read more in the Texas Tribune.
