Breitbart: Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted a video showing the beginning of the State’s new border barriers. The building of fences along unsecured sections of the Texas-Mexico border is part of the plan recently announced by the governor to begin arresting and jailing migrants for violating Texas law.
Governor Abbott tweeted a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) showing Texas Military Forces work crews beginning the process of building fencing along an unsecured section of the state’s border with Mexico.
Abbott said the fencing is being built along private property with the permission of the landowners.
“Texas will keep communities across the state safe.” the governor wrote in his message.
Officials with the governor’s office told Breitbart Texas the construction is taking place in the Del Rio Sector. The first project will add about 1.2 miles of fencing in the unsecured area. more
