EXCLUSIVE: Texas to Build Its Own Border Barriers, Says Governor

Bob Price 10 Jun 2021

Texas Governor Greg Abbott told Breitbart Texas the State will immediately begin building border barriers in areas where migrants can easily cross the Rio Grande border with Mexico. The barriers will, in part, enable state law enforcement to arrest migrants for violations of state law.

“The influx across the border is out of control, and the Biden Administration has shown that is not going to step up and do its job,” Governor Abbott told Breitbart Texas shortly before Thursday’s border summit in Del Rio, Texas. “And amidst reports of even more people coming in across the border, we know we have to step up and do more.”

Abbott said 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. The governor picked Del Rio for the Border Summit due to the massive increases in illegal border crossings in this region. Del Rio Sector agents apprehended 27,890 migrants — a 1,118 percent increase over the May 2020 report of 2,289, Breitbart Texas reported on Thursday.

“The reason why we are here (Del Rio) is because of the massive increase,” the governor stated. Border crossings used to be highly “concentrated in the Rio Grande Valley,” he explained. “Now, you know we’re upstream from the Rio Grande Valley in the Del Rio Sector and the Del Rio sector is suffering from some of the largest increases.”

He said they are hearing from local residents and elected and law enforcement officials that they are seeing things they have never seen before.

“They’re seeing a lot of very bad dangerous people come across the border,” Abbott continued. “People that they are afraid of encountering, people who are causing damage to their fences, their livestock, their crops, their neighborhoods, and their homes.”

I trust this is a prelude to Texas being completely autonomous as its own country.

Good bet. Abbott has taken some bold steps... and we here in Texas love him for it:
    - Banned CRT (Critical Race Theory) from schools
    - Established Texas as a 2d Amendment "sanctuary state" so that Texas can ignore federal gun laws in
      exactly the same manner that California and other states declared themselves "immigration sanctuary
      states" and totally ignored federal immigration laws
    - Kept Texas essentially open during the Covid pandemic. While other states mandated businesses stay
      closed, ours were open. Our restaurants, malls, beaches and similar all stayed open. So did our schools.
      As blue states closed their schools, ours stayed up and running. Many blue sates still have significant
      restrictions on school operations. Texas kids will become doctors and astronauts as blue state kids still
      struggle to read and write. Masks all but disappeared here long ago. FREEDOM RINGS IN TEXAS!
    - Abbott has facilitated a new law, effective 1 September 21, that allows all legal gun owners to carry
      open or concealed. We never have been required to have a permit or registration to purchase or own a
    - Abbott withdrew the Texas National Guard early from the political and unnecessary show of force in DC.
    - Abbott has facilitated a law which allows Texans to obtain a gun "suppressor/silencer" that has been
      manufactured in Texas, without having a federal CLASS III stamp.
    - Declared a state of emergency at the border with Mexico, allowing more stringent penalties for
      apprehended illegal immigrants. He has also pledged to finish the border WALL within Texas.
    - Established the first state-administered gold bullion depository in the nation, in Austin. It has grown,
      requiring an annex to be built in nearby Leander. Such a facility would assist Texas in printing its own
      currency, if required.
    - He is calling the legislature back into session to ensure that the new voting law, which includes things
      like mandatory ID and bans unsolicited ballot mailings, is passed to preclude any future election fraud.

Texas... where FREEDOM RINGS!!

I hope and pray that he is successful (w/o Fed interference) and that barrier is able to be built expediently.
GOD Bless America, have mercy upon this country and stop the evil that has a stranglehold on our Republic from prevailing.
