The Texas Governor has now unveiled a plan to build the rest of the southern border wall after one of his primary opponents, Conservative host of the Blaze and Country Music Singer/Comedian Chad Prather mentioned it weeks before hand.
It’s a move that needed to happen regardless, but why is it that the Texas Governor always has to wait on someone else to suggest an idea before implementing it?
On Wednesday Abbott, joined by several Republican lawmakers, signed a letter authorizing $250 million as a down payment to continue building a border wall between Texas and Mexico after Biden halted President Trump’s wall. The funding would allow for hiring contractors and a program manager.
According to Abbott, the Texas state budget currently allocates $1.1 billion towards border security.
“The Biden Administration has abandoned its responsibilities to secure the border and Texans are suffering as a result,” said Abbott, slamming Biden’s lack of urgency in resolving the border crisis. “The problems along the border are only getting worse due to President Biden’s inaction.”
“Property is being destroyed, deadly drugs and illegal weapons are being smuggled into communities throughout the state, law enforcement is having to redirect their resources, and county judges and mayors are facing skyrocketing expenses,” the governor added.
Abbott took shots at President Biden, and demanded the immediate return of any Texas land in the possession of the federal government. Upon receipt, Abbot said the state of teas will talk to property owners about the possibility of using that land to build the wall.
“In the Biden Administration’s absence, Texas is stepping up to get the job done by building the border wall,” said Abbott. “Through this comprehensive public safety effort, we will secure the border, slow the influx of unlawful immigrants, and restore order in our border communities.”
What are your thoughts America? Obviously finishing the wall is a good idea, but why is Abbott always waiting on others to come up with solutions? He also put a 10 month mask ordinance and lockdown on Texans, then took it off and wanted a pat on the back? How long do conservative Texans continue to give Abbott a free pass?
