Border landowners can apply for compensation for migrant damages

Landowners along the Texas-Mexico border are now eligible for compensation for damage to their land and property caused by migrants, smugglers and drug traffickers, The Tribune reported.

The Legislature during the last session approved $18 million for the compensation fund, administered by the Texas attorney general’s office. Landowners have up to 90 days after an incident to file a claim and must have a written police report documenting the damage.

The state will compensate up to $75,000 for damage to property such as a barn or a fence, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office said.
