U.S. government faces land acquisition challenges

Eminent domain allows the government and other condemning entities the right to purchase private property for public use. Public-use projects must have some benefit to the general public, and can include roads, utilities, schools, pipelines, and more. Unfortunately for landowners, the eminent domain process compels a land sale to a taking authority familiar with the process and procedure, which can be to the detriment of the uninformed property owner. For Texas landowners who live along the border, it is necessary to understand what rights property owners have in the eminent domain process.

Eminent domain allows for public works, but you do have rights

Essentially, the goal of eminent domain laws is simply to say that there are times, even in the United States, where the individual may have to sacrifice something for the greater good. This law allows the government to take private land for use in various public projects.
