Apparently, Governor Greg Abbott of Texas has decided that waiting for the Biden administration to defend the southern border of the United States is a waste of time. Therefore, Abbott is going to take matters into his own hands.
“If President Biden won’t build a border wall, then Texas will,” according to The Washington Times.
“Gov. Greg Abbott said Thursday that his state will erect border barriers in easy-crossing areas along the Rio Grande, and then start arresting and jailing illegal immigrants on state charges. [emphasis added]
“‘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,’ Mr. Abbott told Breitbart Texas shortly before a border summit Thursday in Del Rio. [emphasis added]
“The state plans mass arrests and more jails to back that up and send a message to illegal immigrants, the governor said.
“‘What people have seen in videos across the country seems to be the Biden Administration welcoming these people to the United States. We won’t be sending that message,’ the governor said. ‘If you come to Texas, you’re subject to being arrested. You’re not going to have a pathway to roam the country. You’re going to have a pathway directly into a jail cell.‘” [emphasis added]
