Posted on 06/10/2021 4:54:41 PM PDT by DFG
Texas Governor Greg Abbott told Breitbart Texas the State will immediately begin building border barriers in areas where migrants can easily cross the Rio Grande border with Mexico. The barriers will, in part, enable state law enforcement to arrest migrants for violations of state law.
“The influx across the border is out of control, and the Biden Administration has shown that is not going to step up and do its job,” Governor Abbott told Breitbart Texas shortly before Thursday’s border summit in Del Rio, Texas. “And amidst reports of even more people coming in across the border, we know we have to step up and do more.”
Abbott said Texas will immediately begin construction of border barriers in areas like Del Rio where migrants can easily cross unsecured sections of the border with Mexico. The governor picked Del Rio for the Border Summit due to the massive increases in illegal border crossings in this region. Del Rio Sector agents apprehended 27,890 migrants — a 1,118 percent increase over the May 2020 report of 2,289, Breitbart Texas reported on Thursday.

Kick Ass Governor Greg Abbott!
Probably on its western border to keep Californians out.
ahhh... an election must be coming up because Abbott has found his balls again recently!
What are china joe and heels up going to do about this? The governor should activate a citizen’s militia too. I’d drive down from Idaho to be part of that!
Too little too late. The damage is done.
precisely go look at TX demographics for under 18 years old... look for under 10. smart people are leaving texas, not moving here.
...or around Austin to keep the Austinians corralled.
Good move, but the federal government will probably sue, saying that Texas is overstepping its bounds by trying to enforce border security, which is a federal responsibility.
Should have done it decades ago, but they kept electing Bush League Republicans.
Ding ding Ding! You win the prize. Had the same thought
But what about the butterfly’s?
They’ll be trapped on the wrong side.
Good. This is what states have to do. But it just lets biden off the hook. The other states are fixing the boarder problem. Please let the truth come out faster.
For someone with your screen name, you’re pretty lame.
Kudos to gov Abbott for the courage to do what is right to protect Americans and reduce ILLEGAL immigration.
Could it have anything to do with moats and alligators? My friend is embarrassed to post, so he asked me to ask for him.
Right on Gov.!
>>Too little too late. The damage is done.<<
No..it’s not too late.
Think Army Surplus and Land Mines.
