According to Texas Governor Greg Abbott, the construction of the border wall, which President Trump had started during his four years in office, will now restart under his watch. Although the portion of the border is unspecified, the project is slated to consume most of 2023.
Abbott has been speaking of this for quite a while, see this video:
Here is more of this breaking news story from Newsmax:
“Also on Wednesday, Abbott formally requested that state Attorney General Ken Paxton look into reports of Texas-based nongovernmental organizations, or NGOs, helping migrants illegally cross the southern border.
In his letter to Paxton, Abbott wrote, “The number of illegal immigrants crossing the Texas-Mexico border has reached an all-time high.”
“Indeed, this past Sunday, over a 24-hour span, over 2,600 illegal immigrants crossed the border near El Paso and illegally entered Texas,” wrote Abbott.
In the letter, Abbott also blamed federal border management — and the ones conducting the alleged NGO activities — for the brutal conditions along the border, in terms of Mexican cartels conducting human- and drug-trafficking operations.
“Although the burden to address the ongoing border crisis should not fall to Texas, the federal government has failed to take action to address this problem,” Abbott wrote.
The governor then added: “There have been recent reports that nongovernmental organizations [NGOs] may have assisted with illegal border crossings near El Paso. We further understand NGOs may be engaged in unlawfully orchestrating other border crossings through activities on both sides of the border, including in sectors other than El Paso.”
Abbott also tweeted: “I’m calling on the Texas Attorney General’s Office to investigate the role non-governmental organizations may have played in planning & assisting illegal crossings into Texas. With the end of Title 42 days away, Texas remains vigilant in our response to Biden’s border crisis.”
