Texas Has The Wheel Now, Abbott Jumpstarts New Construction [Video]
It’s no secret that the Biden administration has mishandled the US-Mexico border crisis. With record numbers of illegal crossings since the president took office in January 2021, the situation is only getting worse. This is why it’s refreshing to see Texas take a stand and not wait for the federal government to do its job.
In late January, the state’s governor Greg Abbott proudly announced the construction of a wall along the border and the appointment of a border “czar”, veteran Border Patrol agent Mike Banks. This is a strong symbol of Texas’ commitment to protect its citizens and secure the border.
The construction project of the nearly seven-mile border wall in the Del Rio area has been in development for months after the Texas Facilities Commission approved a $167 million contract with Southwest Valley Constructors Co. After months of negotiations with private property owners, the state was able to come to an agreement to construct infrastructure on their land.
It’s clear that the Biden administration needs to take the border crisis seriously and take immediate action to secure it. This is a matter of national security and safety, and any failure to protect our country should have serious consequences. We hope the feds will take a page out of Texas’ playbook and act soon.
Unfortunately, we’ve seen the Biden administration’s ineffectiveness in handling the border crisis and it’s time for them to step up and take responsibility. We can’t allow illegal immigration to keep increasing at these alarming rates. The people of our country deserve a secure border and a president who will fight for it. It’s time for the federal government to put the safety of our citizens first and take real action to stop illegal immigration.

We can’t allow corrupt Democrats to continue to ignore our national security and safety. We must do all we can to protect our country and our citizens, and that starts with strong border security. Lawmakers have to stand up for what’s right and take action to secure our borders.
