Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday announced plans to build a wall along the state’s border with Mexico.
Abbott, a Republican, made the announcement during a “Border Security Summit” press conference in Del Rio, and said he would discuss the plan in more detail next week.

All we need is the specs and prints.
Contractors already know the drill.
Is Governor Abbott ready to tell the SCOTUS to buzz off? Either this or some blue state AG indicting Trump (or both) is going to touch off a real storm. We are less united now than were were in 1859.
Enhanced Border Security Plan:
➡️ Disaster declaration — individuals entering TX illegally subject to arrest
➡️ Task Force
➡️ Approving over $1B in funding for border security
➡️ Building border barriers
➡️ Interstate compact powers#BorderSummitTX— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) June 11, 2021
I’m sure if they were able to find the contractors who were working on it before, they would have all the contacts for the suppliers who built the sections of wall and other assorted components.
With the abrupt stop of construction, I’m sure there is a decent supply of unused wall components that didn’t get installed sitting in yards around the region.

Because they forgot the word WALL in the post.
Lord God, we support the Governor is doing what is right. We pray for his protection, for your hand to guide him, and for You to give him this victory for the good of his state and nation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
I’ll imagine the Biden white hut will try to make the claim that you cannot used any of that material because they paid for that wall and to use it is theft and belongs to the federal government.
Another thread if anyone cares to scan thru it
EXCLUSIVE: Texas to Build Its Own Border Barriers, Says Governor
But will TX be allowed to refuse entry to foreign invaders?
If not, then why have the wall?
He’s scared he won’t be re-elected. This is BS. He won’t end up doing any of it.
180,000 have already crossed...will they be deported? Effin sickening!!
Will Arizona step up to the plate now?
Like Trump said, Walls work.
So why can the federal government stop Texas from constructing a wall on state lands? It's not immigration if the people enter from non-managed border points, so all Texas has to argue is that they are funneling the people to the proper entry points so that the federal agencies tasked with immigration can do their jobs.
Looks like somebody has a primary coming up.
