Governor Greg Abbott uses new materials to build Texas border wall
EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Governor Greg Abbott has confirmed that Texas is taking matters into its own hands by building its own wall on the border between the United States and Mexico.
The governor said he was taking action to stop the caravans and anyone else planning to cross the border illegally. Governor Abbott said the Texas Department of Public Safety uses reused shipping containers and places them in strategic locations where migrants are likely to pass through.
âThese National Guard and DPS officers, they’re laying down mile after mile of razor wire to make sure it’s harder for people to cross the border. They drop off these big massive containers that you see on the 18 wheels and that you see on these big ships and they put in place a blockade to prevent people from crossing the border. “
