Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is vowing to do what he claims “the Biden administration is refusing to do” when it comes to border security.
Abbott will tour the U.S.-Mexican border with former President Trump this week as he pledges to continue building a border wall. Abbott announced earlier this month steps to stem the flow of migrants illegally crossing the border into Texas — among them are temporary fencing along the border as he pledges to finish construction of the border wall begun under then-President Trump, but halted at the beginning of the Biden presidency.
“We’ve seen so many people coming across the border who are harming Texans and as governor I cannot allow my fellow Texans to being harmed or endangered,” Abbott declared two weeks ago in an interview on Fox News’ “Hannity.” And he pledged: “We’re going to arrest people and put them in jail for a long time so they will know they’re no longer going to be getting the Biden red carpet treatment.”
