Republican Gov. Greg Abbott said he will soon reveal a plan to construct a wall along Texas’s border with Mexico.
Abbott made the announcement to law enforcement officers, county judges, and mayors during a “border security summit” in the border city of Del Rio on Thursday.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I will announce next week the plan for the state of Texas to begin building the border wall in the state of Texas,” Abbott said.
Abbott hosted a “Border Security Summit” with a group of Texas sheriffs, police chiefs, county judges and mayors on Thursday, where he made the announcement.
Citing the latest border apprehensions for the month of May – over 180,000 – Abbott declared, “It is out of control and a change is needed!”
“The border crisis is no laughing matter,” the governor said. “It’s not a tourism site for members of Congress to visit and then return to D.C. and do nothing.”
Abbott told Breitbart News that “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.”
Abbott announced that he has approved $1 billion in state funding for border security, and has issued a disaster declaration, and said anyone found entering the state illegally will be ARRESTED for trespassing.
Abbott declared in a Twitter post Thursday evening, “TX is undertaking an unprecedented response to this crisis. We’re going to start making arrests — sending a message to anyone thinking about coming here — you’re not getting a free pass. You’re getting a straight pass to a jail cell.”
