Gov. Greg Abbott: Texas will build border wall amid 'unprecedented crisis' [View all]

Source: Austin American-Statesman

Gov. Greg Abbott said Thursday that Texas will build a border wall, although he did not provide details on the cost or location or how the state would pay for it.

"I will announce next week the plan for the state of Texas to begin building the border wall in the state of Texas," said Abbott, who spoke after meeting with local and state officials in Del Rio about border security.

Abbott held the meeting amid his ongoing dispute with the Biden administration over a recent surge in border crossings, including many migrants fleeing gang violence in Central America and seeking asylum in the U.S. Administration officials on Monday threatened to sue Texas over Abbott's plan to force state-licensed shelters contracted with the federal government to stop housing migrant children.

The governor has placed a heightened focus on the border in recent months, declaring a disaster in counties along the border.
