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.
While I think Texas Governor Gregg Abbott is a wishy-washy clown half of the time, when he wants to be a conservative, he almost always delivers the goods. This week, Abbott ordered his Department of Public Safety to move their vehicles to block the Texas border from the Haitian invaders.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has taken “unprecedented” measures to deter thousands of migrants from crossing into the state by parking Texas National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety vehicles along the U.S.-Mexico border near the Del Rio International Bridge.
“We put hundreds of Texas Department of Public Safety cars and created a steel wall — a steel wall of DPS vehicles — that prevented anybody from crossing that dam that you’ve seen people walk across,” Abbott told Fox News Tuesday. “We effectively … regained control of the border.”
This is a rather genius move, if you ask me.
He added in a statement that “one day there were countless people coming across the border, then the DPS put up all these vehicles, and suddenly, in an instant, people stopped crossing the border in this location. That strategy is working.”
The Haitian invasion stopped at Del Rio, but the illegitimate president has been transporting and releasing Haitians in other parts of the country. It’s great when the president hates his own country.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has been busy these past few weeks signing bills into law. Unlike other so-called governors, though, Abbott’s bills are meat and potatoes legislation which will immediately benefit the citizens of the Lone Star State.
…we’ve missed what’s going on in the Lone Star State. In the past week, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has been busy signing laws that are giving citizens reasons to cheer. First was his signature that gave the green light to ban red light cameras.
Texan drivers applauded the governor’s action, because not only have red light cameras increased their anxiety and left them with surprise bills, but they’ve resulted in more accidents, according to new studies.
I can attest to this. In patrol, my sector included a red light camera at a busy intersection, and there were more accidents there than anywhere else in my district. People are so afraid of being caught and fined they either speed up or slam on the brakes. Boom, another accident.
A few days later, the governor gave Texans another gift.
“Have you ever ordered food or groceries from a retailer to be delivered to your home, and also wish that you could order beer or wine to be delivered to your home?” Abbott asked. “Well I’m about to sign a law that will allow you to do just that.” (H/T – TXNick)
Beer and wine home delivery? Goodness, why am I not living in Texas already?
Even before the dust settled after Super Bowl LI, an NFL spokesman addressed the media and stated Texas’ pending bathroom law would place future NFL events in jeopardy.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to the threat today in true Texas fashion.
Senate Bill 6 would require transgender people to use restrooms based on their “biological sex” in government buildings, schools and universities.
Oh my god, the horror!
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the NFL should govern football, not politics. He said that the NFL has its own share of problems, such as players committing acts of violence against women and not standing for the national anthem.
“The last thing the NFL needs to do is to get into the business of telling states how to operate their own political operations,” Abbott said. “The NFL has no business whatsoever trying to get into the politics of various states. The NFL has its own problems that it must fix.”
God bless Texas! You would think after this season’s plummeting ratings, the NFL would shut its collective pie holes.
The sooner the NFL learns they need us more than we need them, this garbage will cease immediately.
