Abbott says Texas to Build it’s Own Border Barriers

According to a new report from Breitbart, Texas Governor Greg Abbott says his state will begin building border barriers “in areas where migrants can easily cross the Rio Grande border with Mexico.”

Governor Abbott told Breitbart Texas Thursday“ 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 and amidst reports of even more people coming in across the border, we know we have to step up and do more.”

“The reason why we are here (Del Rio) is because of the massive increase,” Abbott expalined. “Border crossings used to be highly “concentrated in the Rio Grande Valley. 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.”

Per the reprot “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.”
