DOJ hiring attorneys to handle property seizures for border wall

The two advertised jobs, based in McAllen and Brownsville, will pay between $53,062 and $138,790, according to a posting to a federal jobs website.

The ideal candidates for the positions “will have at least four years of civil litigation experience [dealing with] land condemnation cases, oil and gas disputes, and real estate matters,” the posting reads. “Spanish language proficiency is helpful,” the ad says, “but not required.”

The attorneys likely will deal with eminent domain property seizures and quarrels with landowners over what their land is worth, according to Chris Rickerd, the American Civil Liberties Union’s senior policy counsel on border and immigration issues.
