JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

The Department of Justice appears confident the shutdown stalemate will end favorably for President Trump and his border wall pet project.

According to a new Politico report, the DOJ has posted job openings on a federal job website advertising an opening for two attorneys to help handle land seizure litigation along the southern border in Texas. The gigs will pay between $53,062 and $138,790 and are based in McAllen and Brownsville, Texas, according to the posting flagged by Politico.

The department is looking for candidates who have “at least four years of civil litigation experience [dealing with] land condemnation cases, oil and gas disputes, and real estate matters,” the posting said.
