Texas Governor Greg Abbott Starts Construction On Border Wall For State

The state of Texas will soon see the construction of a permanent border wall, the state’s Land Commissioner George P. Bush, grandson of former president George H. W. Bush, said during a Thursday appearance on NewsNation’s The Donlon Report. “We will be breaking ground in a matter of days,” Bush said. “In the coming days, we’ll make an announcement in Starr County, which is in the Rio Grande Valley, where roughly 40 percent of all illegal immigrant apprehensions in our country occur.” Construction of the wall comes at the request of Texas’ Republican Governor Greg Abbott who has long favored such a measure as a means of cracking down on illegal migration. In June, Abbott made a major push for the wall’s construction by starting a private donation campaign that has since raised over $54 million.
