Fed Up with Biden’s Lack of Action Texas Begins Building Border Wall to Stop Illegal Crossings

Fox LA reporter Bill Melugin took to Twitter on Wednesday to release some of the first images of the new Texas border “barrier” under construction by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. The move seeks to “cut the feds out of the equation” and arrest illegal immigrants on local charges.

The innovative approach comes as Customs and Border Protection released its June figures of nearly 190,000 illegal immigrants crossing the nation’s southern border last month. The nation has already surpassed one million illegal immigrants for the year, more than all of 2020 combined.

The Biden administration has repeatedly refused to stop or even slow the growing border crisis. Instead, last month Gov. Abbott declared a state of emergency for border counties. The declaration also called out to other states for help.

Numerous states have committed National Guard members or law enforcement to the state’s effort. Florida joined as the first state, with Nebraska, South Dakota and others following. To date, Kentucky has been the only state led by a Democrat governor to join the effort.

In addition to an increased security force, Abbott launched an effort to build the state’s own wall.

A June news release announced “the Governor, Lieutenant Governor [Dan] Patrick, Speaker [Dade] Phelan, and Senator [Jane] Nelson, and Representative [Greg] Bonnen signed a letter during the press conference authorizing the transfer for $250 million as a down payment to launch the construction of the border wall and hire a program manager and contractors.”

In addition to the initial payment, additional future funds were also announced.

“Governor Abbott also noted that the state budget allocates 1.1 billion dollars towards border security — a record for the State of Texas.”

Beyond state funding, Abbott announced the launch of a donation page “where anyone can voluntarily donate to the construction of the border wall.” Donors can personally support the effort at borderwall.texas.gov.

Now the work is starting to move forward. Though only a 1.5 mile start along the Del Rio border, the first stretch of barrier marks a significant change in approach by the Lone Star State. It’s no longer talk. The battle is on.

For a state known for the saying, “Don’t mess with Texas,” it’s stepping up to address a problem the Biden administration will not. Texans know they can’t wait until 2024 to find out if they will get any help. At the current rate, there could be eight million new illegal immigrants in America by then, a population greater than many states.

Instead, Texas is arresting people by the dozens. The next problem for Abbott will be what will happen to those arrested? If 6,000 people are crossing the border each day, where will all these people go?

Abbott is working on plans to return many of the immigrants, but his hope is that increased arrests will slow the number of people attempting to cross the border—at least in his state.

  1. I congratulate Texas for building the wall to stop—or at least slow down—the influx of unvetted illegal migrants into our harassed nation. However, that wall looks more like a strong fence and could be breach-able by determined illegals. At least Texas is making an effort to stop the Soros Open Borders migrant insanity and uphold our country’s long established—but now completely ignored by leftists—immigration laws by putting up that fence or wall. The Biden Imposter Regime is itself comprised of election-rigging, greedy, bribed, deceitful, anti-America, Marxist, radical leftist political migrant thugs who have illegally invaded the White House and our entire government fraudulently, seditiously, and unconstitutionally, and hopefully and prayerfully they will soon be removed from power before they can hand America over to the Chinese Communist Party. In God We Trust. The eyes of Texas are upon them. MAGA!

      1. An update and clarification The feds sleepy joe won’t build the border wall which our tax dollars already paid the contractors to do. We the taxpayers are also paying guards to watch the equipment and parts of the border wall lying in piles waiting to be built. The federal government also paid these farmers for the land to build it now sleepy Joe won’t give them back their land so governor Abbott is actually putting up the Fence on the farmers land and since the feds won’t do anything Texas will be able to arrest these people on local trespassing charges and any damages to the land crops or animals which is a start instead of letting them all just run free into of the US. They are coming to every town so donate please

        1. I agree this will at least give this a start. We the people of USA
          are being overrun. Wait till it hits closer to where you live.
          Only time

      2. That is when you shoot them for home invasion!!! They and their backpacks full of cocaine, etc, can head for Chicago, Baltimore, and the west coast!!! Not as radical as one might think huh????

      4. And most house door locks can be broken or defeated also — same with locks on your car doors/ignition. Indeed, any security system that one can devise can be defeated eventually by a determined criminal. Does that mean we don’t use them? Of course not. Security systems, including fences, don’t always work — but they are at least a deterrent. I agree that the “wall” the Governor is constructing isn’t the best possible solution — but it IS part of the solution.

    1. Chagas’ disease is crossing the border. Look it up! Why were you educated about ZIKA and not Chagas? The CDC is essentially silent. The number of people unaware they’re infected hasn’t been updated in over a decade. (300,000k) Recent medical journal articles describe this disease as the “most neglected infectious disease”. Imagining a heart and/or colon filled with parasitic worms will cross party lines. Once a disease in South America it has infiltrated the the US due to migration. I hope this appears as I have been consistently censored. Tell everyone you know.

  2. I agree with Eloise! May our Father bless and protect all those who are participating.
    GO TEXAS

  3. Electrify it ! ! !
    make all communist democrat cult members take their front doors off their houses and live in an open door policy!

    1. Ha! Good idea. Let the Dems and RINOs and their anti-America bribe masters suffer the consequences of their Open Borders/Open Doors nightmare.

    1. AWESOME IDEA PUT 10 MILLIONS VOLTS TO IT THAT WILL STOP THEM FROM TRYING TO CUT IT. IT’S ONLY LIKE A TECH WOULD GET SHOCKED FROM WORKING ON A OLD DISPLAY TERMINAL WHEN THEY THOUGHT IT WAS SHORTED PROPERLY

  4. Texas biggest problem is going to be these border agencies! Now they had decided to build the wall! Due to fact these agencies work for the GOVERNMENT IN DC! What Texas is going have to do is remove them from their state! And place local laws enforcement or National GUARD at the border. Can’t trust them if they keep putting them on busses to other state! Should had turn them back south to Mexico or wherever they came from! Biden not intelligence enough or any democrats congress member. They REFUSED TO SEE THE PROBLEM IN THESE COUNTRY. BECAUSE THEY HELP CREATED IT! Using TAXPAYERS MONEY TO FUND THESE COUNTRIES SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT CONTROL! Only the one in power has the MONEY! REST of the people live on whatever little change they can get selling in flea market.

  5. TEXANS LOVE TRUMP, now we all know why. Texians have been in a battle for our southern border since 1835! TEXAS loves freedom for ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS_OOHRAH!

  6. This fence is better than no fence. But hopefully they have a way to police it and keep the
    illegals from using wire cutters to cut a hole so they can cross. Thank GOD Texas is trying to
    do something and other States are helping. We need the real President back and send Joe
    to jail were he belongs. His VP is almost as big a bad joke as Joe. Get rid of these two
    IMPOSTERS and put a real leader in charge before they destroy our COUNTRY.

  7. Hooray for Texas..if you haven’t donated to this great cause yet, do it now. Lets show biden WE are still a free nation, that Don t need their grubby little handouts, AND BUILD THAT WALL.

  8. I agree. Let Pelosi and AOC etc come out from their gated communities and live ON the border in a house with NO DOORS.

  9. The two jobs given to the fed. government from the beginning, was to secure the boarder and interstate commerce. This should be an impeachable offense. Not to mention, all that he and his dem party has done from day one, has been to serve every country but our own. This man his dem party has broken the Constitution time and time again. His first duty is to “We the People” and for our benefit. He and his party has failed and they all need to be removed to prison and the rightful President Trump reinstated!
    The purpose of government is to serve “We the People”, not we the government. That is treason!!!

    1. AMEN, Cranston!!! The illegal immigrants are already breaking our laws the minute they step in. Any that’s just the start of the law breaking, also add illegal driver’s licenses, illegal voting, even jobs, etc! PLEASE JUST COME IN THE RIGHT WAY!!!

  10. Altho it’s better than nothing I don’t think a mere chain like fence is going to deter very much. A pair of wire cutters and they’re here….Maybe if it can be electrified…….

  11. They should electrify these fences as we do with cattle sheep. No one likes to get
    shocked. A bolt in time saves nine.

    1. You cant electrify the fence and make it deadly, but you can sure make it uncomfortable. Even high voltage would be breached using insulated tools

  12. All illegals should be sent to sanctuary cities . democrates think that these world wide illegals will vote for the same thing that they left their countries for ? Building there own wall when one was already paid for , I don’t get it . So the keystone pipeline should be building there own pipelines ! Getter done .

  13. True Grit too TEXAS n it’s citizens on this effort….her in NM , especially here in Northern NM we struggle and being struggling for decades due too incompetence neglect greed and treachery allowing the drug flow to continue fm South America. No deterance education on DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION, promoting welfare drugs to ban aid our dilemma fm loosing our youth to od and rising homelessness unemployment within our ETHNICITY due to these challenges on substance abuse. I truly am convinced it has been a plan to run our INDIGENOUS INDIO MEZTISO population into EXTINCTION for our rich resources traditions n lands. 6 yrs reaching out to all political parties agencies state county city religious orders media and not one will listen publish nor provide any answers on our request for answers nor plan. CRUSADEFORAID.ORG. state of emergency for northern New Mexico drug epidemic help save our culture on change.Org. God bless America and those committed to our survival….amen

  14. I’m glad Texas is building the wall. I thing they should just line the boarder with Federal Penitentiaries that way if they try to cross the boarder they will be breaking into jail.

    1. Oh if I was a rancher I would start adding cactus or any other type of plant to make it a little more difficult.
      Maybe even a trench. I’m sure there are deterrents out there if electric fence not used

  15. We are being invaded by foreign nationals. It’s time the Texas National Guard steps in and enforces what the federal government refuses to do, protect our country from invasion. If Americans can be arrested for peacefully waking into the nation’s capital, then foreigners can be arrested for invading American soil.

  16. Trump said many times; “those do nothing democrats” truer words wee ever said. this biden mob is totally reckless, incompetant, destructive, economically absurd. And most of all. Why would anybody vote for these worthless idiots to run our country? the term”occupy democrats” is liken to allow ALL felony criminals to be set free .. and run our country.

  17. A BIG THANK YOU to Governor Abbott and ALL of those working tirelessly, on BUILDING THE WALL. You are TRUE PATRIOTS to protect our country. Why put them in jail? SEND EVERYONE BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY. They are bringing in GUNS, DRUGS AND MORE DISEASES. America is being KILLED BY THE VIRUSES in here now. AMERICA STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  18. Hard to believe that No Illegals have been Shot yet . It WILL happen , more likely sooner than later . These FRAUDS in the WH MUST BE STOPPED !

  19. Did Biden really have the authority to stop construction on a federally signed contract to build the wall? Texas is bold to continue the wall and will hopefully fortify it with all kinds of deterrents that cause illegal invaders to go back home.
    The Covid that the invaders are bringing is dangerous to Americans. Invaders should be required to pay for and present a Covid test – they paid the Coyotes to bring them here – maybe having to pay for something without expecting American taxpayers to fund them could be another deterrent.
    President Trump was the best manager of this situation – and still should be in charge!

  20. Dennis F. I agree with you. Why don’t some of the cowboys in and close to the border, get on their horses, form a posse, take their rifles, and storm the border?!! Shoot the men in the knees or close by, and get these invaders out of our country! We have that right since the government won’t protect us and our country!

  21. I agree with Eloise. I couldn’t have said it better. There is as a part of any American oath that they will defend this country from all enemies foreign and domestic. Those in control of our country are failing to live up to their oath and have become accessories to the crimes being committed by the illegals.

  22. Wire fence to detect cutters with exact location of cut.Airborne QRF to respond with lethal force if necessary.

  23. Pretty soon citizens are going to step in. I’m from California and would gladly go to Texas to help stop this insane open border crap.

  24. Just shows you how worthless the Biden admin. but if you count his corruption, he’s doing a great job! WORST POTUS EVER!!!!!!!

  25. Why bother with a new fence? Instead, declare Texas to be an Agricultural State and ANY ILLEGAL ALIENS as Rustlers! HANG them from the nearest Tree and they will stop coming!
