Lol. Your people cheered on the decision in Kelo vs. New London, which may be the worst case in Supreme Court history for property rights as it relates to eminent domain.

Abbott didn’t specifically say a wall. You gotta watch him. He said a border “barrier” which may be something the illegals can get through pretty easily.

Could apprehensions be up because a helluva a lot more people are crossing?



That is certainly the case. The claim was though that Biden wasn't enforcing border security, not that he wasn't enforcing it at the same rate as the Trump administration. If he wasn't enforcing it, there'd be little to no apprehensions. Did y'all even read the post I responded to?

No, but Sao/Spleen definitely hate border security.


I don't mind border security at all. I've said it's all theater though. Abbott doesn't seem to care if illegals build everything in his own backyard. Including the concrete ramps the political pandering little sucker uses to get over curbs.

It's election fodder. But thanks for being my fan and letting me live in your cute wittle head.

As the property owners on the border if they are willing to cooperate without eminent domain. You will find overwhelming support for a wall from people tired of dealing with potentially dangerous situations on their property.


The Trump admin received considerable pushback from many borderland owners.

Not sure how Abbot plans on paying for this. Perhaps set up a GoFundMe?

Oh, that's right. There was already a GoFundMe set up for a border wall that brought in millions that was, of course, stolen and resulted in criminal prosecution.

Isn't the texas/mexico border the Rio Grande for the entire length? So are they going to build a fence in the river or on the US bank? just curious

Probably on the US side of the bank for the most part.




In a perfect world, we'd have tight border security enforced by both the US and Mexico, with as many checkpoint crossings as possible. I'd like to see the northern part of Mexico industrialize if we can do it.

Something else happened when Biden took over and I'm not exactly sure if it's his admin or something else.

But we started getting flooded with illegal immigrants under the age of 17 in the past few months. Maybe they thought Biden would grant them amnesty given his campaign rhetoric?

Other states should help pay Texas for this.

Pretty sure the LINKED article says "WALL" and not "Barrier"

quote:

Gov. Greg Abbott announced Thursday that Texas will build a border wall along the state’s boundary with Mexico — but provided no details on where or when.
