Last month, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, announced that Texas is taking charge of its own border since the Biden administration has failed to stop the flood of illegal aliens pouring into the state.

Abbott declared that Texas will build its own border wall. “My belief, based upon conversations that I’ve already had, is a combination of state land as well as volunteer land will yield hundreds of miles to build a wall in the state of Texas,” the governor said.

“Homes are being invaded, neighborhoods are dangerous and people are being threatened on a daily basis with guns by people coming across the border or those working with those coming across the border,” Abbott warned.

This week, Fox News reporter Bill Melugin, who is currently reporting from the border, posted photos of the new fence Abbott is having built, which is a chain-link fence with razor wire on top.

Melugin tweeted, “We were given access to the beginning construction of Governor Abbott’s promised TX border barrier. The first 1.5 mile stretch is here in Del Rio, yards from Rio Grande. No trespass signs will be added. Migrants will be arrested on state charges if they cross.”

“I asked what a chain link fence is going to stop? Texas DPS tells me the idea is to cut the feds out of the equation. No trespass signs allow them to arrest on local charges. Instead of calling Border Patrol, they will take migrants to jail for violating Texas law,” Melugin explained.

One Twitter user, posting under the name “Police Unions are Cartels,” hit back, tweeting, “Bill, did anyone ever inform you that a state enforcing federal law is usurping federal power? Thank you for shining light on this unconstitutional power grab by the worst state in the nation.”

Melugin responded, “They wouldn’t be enforcing federal law. They would be enforcing Texas trespassing laws etc.”

Gov. Abbott also shared a photo Wednesday evening, in which the new fence is seen in the background.

He announced, “Texas has begun arresting illegal immigrants who are trespassing in Texas or vandalizing property & fences. They are now being sent to this jail rather than being released like the Biden Admin. has been doing. We are adding more officers, National Guard & jails.”

  1. I have a so called friend who says everyone is sick of Texas whining about illegals coming in.

    Sound like liberal talk to me. I’m sick of illegals coming into my state and liberals whining saying we welcome them, it’s okay to bring crime, human trafficking, drugs, covid, other diseases and for us to foot their bills

    • I think all the democrats need to have their checks garnished to pay fir all thus, especially Biden for telling them to come in. Stop using tax payers money for this that we don’t want.

  2. Arrest and jail these illegal alien invaders, who are breaking Texas laws.

    Bill their home country for any and all expenses for their capture and subsequent expenses for housing and feeding them, as well as for the re-homing expenses.

    Once there’s a total for an illegal alien invader’s expenses, add on an additional 25% of that total for administrative fees, which will help defray the expenses incurred, to cover payroll expenses and benefits. Texas and its citizens should not be out one cent for any expenses relating to these illegal alien invaders.

  3. And if you lived here you would be saying “ at least it is a step in right direction until government is forced to give the money that was sitting in a funds account until the thieving democrats and liberals stole it for their own use”.
    When your desperate for a car… do you wait until you save up money and buy your new car or do you purchase a used one to use then keep saving until you have the money to purchase a new one? If this fence stops just one then I consider it wise. At least the thought counts. You all laughed at the Greatest President of the United States Donald J. Trump but it worked.

  4. All I know is that if states have to go on lockdown again Biden will be to blame because of all of the illegals that brought it here. Wouldn’t be surprised if the Delta variant came from someone that crossed the boarder

  5. You definitely should electrify the fence or their going to just cut it. This will stop or at least slow them down. Good job Texas!

  6. Let’s show up one day with addresses of Hollywood and Don Lemon and Cuomo-Schumer-Pelosi-Newsom’s home addresses along with Biden’s addresses and send them there. With “free room and board” on the flier.

  7. They’ll just cut the fence or use a blow torch, rofl. They could even dig under it. Waste of money! Electrify them (go big) or go home.

  8. Thank you Mr Abbot for building that wire fence and also you need to put signs on the wall and maybe put some kind of something to shock the aliens. Good job Abbot.

  9. It’s a step. But to be really effective you need boots on the ground. Unless there is an officer there to arrest them, the fence will only stop them for minutes.
    Texas should deputize citizens to arrest the illegals. Citizen patrols along the border. Texas should also make it a felony to hire them.

  10. Good job texas now we need florida to stop them from coming here florida is full we have everybody coming here we dont need no more .good job abbott
