Gov. Greg Abbott (R) previously installed about 30 miles of razor wire at the Texas-Mexico border near Eagle Pass to stop the flood of illegal aliens being let in by the Biden administration. He’s installing more. And in defiance of the Supreme Court order, he continues to occupy Shelby Park. The Border Patrol Union stands with Texas, along with 25 states.
Additionally, Governor Greg Abbott released a video of Texas building its own border wall. He said that Texas will not back down from securing the border. He bought up as much as he could of the leftover material that the administration didn’t use.
“Texas made history as the first and ONLY state to build our own border wall,” he said.

Republican governors, including Greg Abbott, are visiting the Texas border to discuss border security policies and address the Biden administration’s approach.
The visit will take place at Shelby Park, despite it being off-limits to federal law enforcement, which has caused tension between the Biden administration and Abbott’s Operation Lone Star.
The opposition protests against Abbott’s border policies and the visit are taking place, with concerns raised about their impact on the international waterway.
