Texas Is Getting Things Done

A few months ago, Texas Governor Greg Abbott stated he would build his own border wall to protect the citizens of Texas from illegal immigrants and cartel members crossing into the state. Amazingly, that was not a bluff, and the Texas border wall is continuing.

Texas Army National Guard troops and equipment deployed by Governor Greg Abbott moved in to block a portion of the Rio Grande in Eagle Pass, Texas. The troops began arriving on Friday and positioned themselves along a one-mile stretch of the river near the downtown area of the city.

The troops are stationed in Humvee vehicles carefully placed along the riverbank to serve as a deterrent to illegal crossings near the city. Nearly 30 vehicles are parked less than 150 feet from each other facing Mexico. Border Patrol agents in the area tell Breitbart Texas more troops were scheduled to arrive later in the day.

Abbott has been hit and miss during his tenure as governor. Sometimes he’s amazing, other times, he’s awful. I’m sure a lot of this is because he wants to be reelected, but I also think he knows this is the only to save his state from being overrun by illegals.

A short distance away, construction crews are working to build Abbott’s border wall where the guard troops’ blockade ends. For two miles, the Texas border wall will stand 18’ tall and stretch along one of the busiest migrant crossing areas in Eagle Pass. A source involved in the construction tells Breitbart the project is progressing quickly.

Isn’t it astounding how well projects can unfold when the federal government is not mucking up the works? It’s almost as if the federal government is completely useless.

Make A None For The Border

President Trump is apparently stopping illegal immigration using nothing more than his mere presence… and his hair.

While the president is envisioning himself punching a cable-news network logo into submission, take a look at what The Failing New York Times™ reports from Choloma, Honduras:

While some of Mr. Trump’s most ambitious plans to tighten the border are still a long way off, particularly his campaign pledge to build a massive wall, his hard-line approach to immigration already seems to have led to sharp declines in the flow of migrants from Central America bound for the United States.

From February through May, the number of undocumented immigrants stopped or caught along the southwest border of the United States fell 60 percent from the same period last year — evidence that far fewer migrants are heading north, officials on both sides of the border say.

Arrests of immigrants living illegally in the United States have soared, with the biggest increase coming among those migrants with no criminal records. The shift has sown a new sense of fear among undocumented immigrants in the United States. In turn, they have sent a warning back to relatives and friends in their homelands: Don’t come.

Absolutely beautiful. If Cankles won the election, we would already be speaking Spanish.
