WASHINGTON – A class-action lawsuit against Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff was filed Friday, alleging that Texas landowners were tricked into waiving their property rights for construction of the fence along the U.S.-Mexican border.

Members of the Texas Border Coalition, which mainly consists of local mayors and business leaders, said Chertoff did not negotiate compensation with landowners for access to their land and are asking for an injunction to block work on the fence and order Chertoff to start again.
