Texas: 'Deadly Consequences of Biden's Open Border Policies' Spur Gov. Abbott to Unprecedented Action:
On Saturday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott unveiled the newly-constructed sections of the state-funded Texas border wall. Abbott pulled no punches, saying Texas took this historically “unprecedented action by any state ever, for a state to build a wall on our border, to secure and safeguard the sovereignty of the United States as well as our own state.” Abbott went on to say the action was needed for one reason: because “the Biden Administration has failed to do its job as required by the Constitution — as required by laws passed by Congress — to enforce the immigration laws of the United States of America.”
Speaking from the hard-hit area of the Rio Grande Valley, Abbott said “the consequences of Biden’s failure to do his job are staggering.” Already in 2021, more than 1.2 million people have been apprehended coming illegally across the border. Illegal immigrants “are coming not just from Mexico but through Mexico from more than 150 countries across the entire globe — including countries who are hostile to the United States of America” such as China, Iran, Syria, and Russia. --->READ MORE HERE
Texas starts building Trump-sized border wall:
Texas has broken ground on the construction of a wall along its southern border with Mexico, a deliberately extravagant gesture intended to show a willingness to defend the area against illegal immigrants while Washington remains idle.
The go-it-alone effort is meant to deter mass migration to and through Texas after a year that saw more people come across between ports of entry than during any year in the Border Patrol’s 97-year existence.
“We're actually breaking ground and sending a message more importantly to the federal government that if you're not going to do your job, Texas will,” Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush said in an interview.
“We are a can-do people — a resilient people," Bush said. "We know when we're being stiffed, and in this case, it's this blatant disregard for enforcing federal immigration law.”
Construction began this week in Rio Grande City, a small town in southeastern Texas. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott will announce the project during a press conference slated for Saturday. The wall will be at least 18 feet tall and stretch two miles. --->READ MORE HERE
