The border wall which first started by former President Donald Trump will continue to construct by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott as he announced his state has allocated $1 billion in its fiscal year budget toward border security by calling “The Ingraham Angle.”
In an invigorating display of patriotism, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has pledged to ‘build border barriers‘ along Texas’ southern international border with Mexico. This comes in the aftermath of the Biden regime suspending funding for President Trump’s border security project. This news comes at the same time border crossings on America’s southern flank has reached two-decade highs.
During his first month in power, Biden and his regime put a pause on the construction of a border wall that was initiated under President Trump. This resulted in intense criticism towards the Biden regime on part of the more courageous members of the Republican Congressional leadership.
Abbott, joining the program from the border near Del Rio, said he has had enough of the White House’s “willful” disregard for rule of law and the well-being of Texans and Americans, especially those in places like Del Rio and other border towns.
“To make a fine point on it, we have to build a border wall,” said Abbott. “I’ve been down here talking to the people in the Rio Grande Valley and the way they are being overrun is reprehensible, it’s disastrous what the Biden administration has done.”
Abbott condemned Biden for ending the “Remain in Mexico” policy that Trump forged with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, which staved off some of the influx of migrants as they were instructed to file for asylum in Mexico before crossing into the United States.
“[Trump] began building the border wall and now suddenly all of that disappeared and as you highlighted, it has led to a dramatic increase in the number of people crossing the border, but it’s not just unaccompanied minors, it’s people were causing great damage and harm to the residents right here in Del Rio up and down the entire border,” said Abbott.
Under his state of emergency declaration, Abbott noted the Texas Department of Public Safety can increase penalties for crimes such as trespassing, on which police will elevate the number of arrests of illegal immigrants intruding into Texans’ land.
“We’re going to take this very seriously, we’re going to do everything possible to secure our border, including building a border wall,” he said, adding that he will share details on that endeavour later next week.
Abbott went on to criticize Vice President Kamala Harris’ ineffective tact toward border security, calling the administration’s behaviour “willful” and worse.
“It is purposeful. It’s a wanton disregard for the border laws, for the immigration laws, for the border communities, for candidly, anybody in the United States of America,” he said.
“The Biden administration has abandoned the border, any pretence of border security, any pretence of enforcing our immigration laws. They’ve laughed it off just the same way that the vice president laughed it off in her interview the other day. So it is a joke to the Biden administration.
“But we are not taking it as a joke in Texas. We are going to step up and respond the way we must respond to secure the sovereignty of our state, to prevent the invasion that’s taken place in front of our very own eyes,” Abbott added.
