Governor of Texas Greg Abbott announced his plans to build a Border Wall on Texas’ Southern Border yesterday. Abbott has strengthened his stance on the Border amidst a push from one of his gubernatorial opponents Don Huffines. The Governor told Breitbart how his administration plans “to step up and do more” concerning the Border by beginning to build border barriers in areas where migrants can easily cross.
After Abbott decided to begin supporting plans for improvements to Texas’ border security, Arizona Senator Wendy Rogers also joined in, calling for a Southern border across Arizona.
Rogers has consistently called for construction of a border wall in her state. In early April, Rogers pushed to use state money for the construction of a border wall even if “the federal government [isn’t] continuing to build the wall.”
