Professor Somin's Op-Ed on Border Wall

I'm a fan of George Mason Law Professor Ilya Somin. He writes regularly for one of my favorite places on the internet - The Volokh Conspiracy - and his book, The Grasping Hand: Kelo v. City of New London and the Limits of Eminent Domain, is terrific.

Unfortunately, too much of the political debate over President Trump's proposed border wall is poisoned by knee-jerk, politically obsessed partisans. However, if you wish to review a more thoughtful perspective on this issue, check out this link from a January 19, 2019 Washington Post op-ed by Professor Somin:

To build the wall, Trump might make thousands of Americans suffer

I wish all Americans could read this op-ed to benefit from a more balanced and independent analysis of the border wall issue.
