It sounds like their thinking isn't "Hey if we buy this land they'll be totally stuck!" but rather "hey if we buy this land and retain a law firm that knows what to do we can tie them up in court for years and make the process a complete nightmare!" I don't know much about eminent domain law, but I know there are a couple of defenses, maybe not enough for a homeowner to save their beloved home but probably enough for a well-funded group looking to become a thorn in Trump's side as he tries to move forward. (Is he even trying? I'm not super up to date on his antics; I kind of thought that was starting to look like an empty campaign promise with only token efforts made toward it. I could be wrong.)
