The state of Texas is going to pick up where Trump left off building the border wall.
Months ago, a shocking report showed unused sections of border wall rusting in the sun in a field after Biden halted the project.
Governor Greg Abbott managed to acquire many of those wall panels and is going to resume wall construction in Texas.
Breitbart News reports:
The State acquired a large quantity of 30-foot wall panels from the Biden Administration to utilize in the construction of a border wall. The materials came from federal contracts cancelled in January 2021.
“Texas is the first state ever to build a border wall,” Governor Abbott began in an exclusive interview. “A lot of the border wall is being built by border wall material that there was a contract for, Texas bought it from contractors who built the wall for President Trump. We’re building the exact same wall.”
“In addition, a lot of people saw on TV a lot of these border wall components like this that were just laying on the ground, that taxpayers had paid for,” the governor added. “Biden chose not to build the wall.”
“We found a way, by going through the surplus program of the federal government where Texas would be able to obtain these border wall panels and we obtained as much as we could, until Biden found out about it,” Abbott explained. “He put a stop to Texas being able to get it. There may be some other ways that we will be able to get more.”
The stacks of panels appeared to cover more than an acre of the land.
The governor explained the first parts of the Texas project were built on state-owned land. The new sections are scheduled to be built on parcels provided by ranch owners.

This is really a job for the president, but Biden certainly isn’t doing to do it.
