    Ep. 1 The Taking w/T Christian Miller, ProPublica

    The first episode of Deep Reporting with Rex Carlin features ProPublica Senior Investigative Reporter T. Christian Miller discussing his joint story with Texas Tribune called The Taking, documenting the struggles of landowners at our nation's southern border in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas ten years after the federal government utilized the power of eminent domain to make a massive land grab to build the first incarnation of a major border wall at our border with Mexico. We discuss the ongoing legal battles many are still fighting, how the government botched this effort so badly, and what it might mean moving forward for the Trump administration as it attempts to follow through on promises to build a border wall of its own.
