Family Says They're Cut Off By Border Wall

LA PALOMA - A Cameron County family says the government isn't holding up its end of a deal involving the border fence.

The Garza family in La Paloma farms land off Highway 281, near Brownsville. Crews are working around the clock to build a border wall on the family's land.

The border fence will separate the family from most their land.

Norma Longoria says the federal government promised a gate to let her father access the land. But instead, her father will be forced to drive one mile around the border wall to check on his cattle and operate the water pump.
