Professor Nestor Davidson was quoted in Mashable about Cards Against Humanity purchasing land along the U.S.-Mexico border as a part of its campaign to block the US-Mexico border wall.
“I think it’s a stretch,” Nestor Davidson, the Chair in Real Estate, Land Use, and Property Law at Fordham University said about forwarding a defense that questioned the use of the land for public use. “The classic rationale is that if you want to make a road, you don’t want it zigging and zagging around people who don’t want to sell their property. You’ve had to have a straight highway for the larger public good and we give the government the power to take that land.”
Davidson admitted a successful defense comparing the border wall to the travel ban is improbable, but said it might stand a small chance, “if Cards Against Humanity could actually show that this really is all only about animus.”
