Walled In, And Loving It!

Texas Governor Gregg Abbott has secured surplus panels from President Trump’s border wall, and will use the panels to continue the Texas border wall at the southern border.

Yes, this is likely being done to help Abbott’s reelection, but I’m fine with it. Texas needs a border wall, and they needed it years ago.

Texas has obtained 1,700 panels originally designed for the Trump border wall to use in Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s effort to “secure the border.”

“After Biden halted construction of Trump’s border wall hundreds of unused wall panels were left at construction sites,” Abbott tweeted.

“Texas has obtained 1,700 of those unused panels to help build the wall,” he added. “They had been declared surplus–now they secure the border.”

The Texas Tribune first reported the news of the state’s plans to use the border wall barriers for the state’s own barrier. The panels are expected to cover approximately 1.3 miles of the Lone Star State’s border barrier.

That’s 1.3 miles they didn’t have last week. I wish other southern states would implement this plan. You don’t need the government’s permission to do so, and I cannot understand why Arizona and New Mexico are not demanding their own wall.

  1. It’s a funny old world. I hear Abbott got $6 million dollars worth of panels, that cost him $2 million dollars to transport to Texas.
    Waste which could have been avoided if Biden had just left well enough alone and finished the wall.

  2. Any wall they can build is a good thing, but I don’t think it’s much more than a couple of miles at the most. Hope he finds a million more that are affordable.

  3. Mike AKA Proof – Except he doesn’t want a wall. Illegals are the new Democrats.

    RG – Yeah, it’s a shame previous governors haven’t thought of this before.

  4. Too little, too late Mr. Abbott. Tomorrow I vote for Mr. West in the primary. This elephant does have a long memory. A couple of my favorite restaurants are no longer open because of the mask mandates which you made.

    Had Mr. Abbott not been such a RINO, he would have coasted to an easy re-election. He’ll get it, but he has to work a lot harder as a result of some anti-liberty decisions made last year.

    1. West is my favorite Republican next to Trump. He was sure serious about backing his soldiers back in the day… My favorite thing he’s done was when he brought lunch to all those black caucus assholes and served them all Chik-Fil-A.
