Texas Governor Greg Abbott is tired of waiting for the Biden administration to take action on illegal immigration.
This week he announced that Texas is going to build its own border wall.
Will other border states follow his lead?
GOP Gov. Abbott to Pick Up Building Trump’s Border Wall in Texas
Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott vowed to do the “job of the federal government” in securing the U.S. border, and he announced a number of moves Thursday, including picking up the building of the Trump border wall in his state.
“I will announce next week the plan for the state of Texas to begin building the border wall in the state of Texas,” Gov. Abbott said at a border summit Thursday in Del Rio, Texas.
Perhaps equally noteworthy, the governor’s disaster declaration to address the border crisis will include potentially arresting anyone illegally entering the state of Texas…
“It will help all of us to work on ways to stem the flow of unlawful immigration and to stem the flow of illegal contraband,” Abbott said at the summit, The Texas Tribune reported.
“They don’t want to come to across the state of Texas anymore because it’s not what they were expecting,” Abbott added at the conference. “It’s not the red carpet that the federal administration rolled out to them.”
