Yesterday Texas Governor Greg Abbott held a conference in Austin to discuss further plans to increase border security and the construction of a border wall.
This time around the pay for the wall will not lay on Mexicans hands, as Trump once assured. Texans taxpayers will be the ones paying for the wall, Gov. Abbott announced that the state budget would allocate more than $1 billion to the border security project.
During the conference, Gov. Abbott officially signed off on a $250 million down payment to begin the border wall construction process.
Abbott also said that he plans to build the wall on state land, and sent a letter to President Joe Bidden demanding the immediate return of any land taken by the federal government to build the border wall.
