With more than 1,250 miles of shared border with Mexico, Texas has the most to lose — or gain — from the construction of the border wall that President Trump has promised. The Texas Tribune recently visited four border counties to ask people how they felt about border security and the possibility that their land could be seized for the wall project.

The Texas Tribune is a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.
