It has become painfully evident over the past nine months that the Biden administration had absolutely no plans to do anything about the border crisis as hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals poured through the Texas border.
Despite weak attempts to convince the public that the administration is against open borders as they admitted, processed, funded and transported illegal immigrants across the country, they are fooling no one.
Now that the crisis is worsening beyond reparation, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has finally taken definitive action to halt illegal immigration.
Abbott announced on Tuesday that he will fulfill former President Donald Trump’s legacy and continue building the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
“Preparations are being made for Texas’ border wall,” Abbott tweeted on Tuesday afternoon. “Strategic fencing & barriers have been built to halt illegal border crossings,” he said alongside photos of ongoing construction at the Texas border.
“Thousands of Texas Guard & Texas Dept. of Public Safety personnel remain deployed,” said the Republican governor. “Texas continues to secure the border & keep communities safe.”

The continued construction at the border comes after months of court battles, which ultimately allowed the wall to be continued under state law.
Abbott in September signed a $2 billion border security funding bill which included $750 million of emergency funds for border wall construction, the Texas Tribune reported.
“It is the federal government’s job to secure our border, but the Biden administration has failed to do its job, so Texas is stepping up to do what the federal government is supposed to do,” Abbott said when he signed the bill during a ceremony in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Lone Star State has taken it upon itself to secure the border when the Biden administration refused to do so. Border cities such as Del Rio, Texas, have experienced crippling overpopulation because of the border surge resulting in spiked Covid cases, food scarcity, and supply shortages.
Now that Texas refuses to allow its state to be overrun by non-citizens, some investigative journalists have confirmed that illegal immigrants have made their way to Arizona where they have discovered a “gap” to easily cross.
