Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas said on Thursday that the state would build a border wall with Mexico, providing few specifics about construction that would extend one of former President Donald J. Trump’s favored projects. W/ @edjsandoval https://t.co/C9QNKjfYMQ
Re: border wall, Abbott primary challenger @DonHuffines has been pressuring Abbott over it.
"Texas needs its own border wall, and it will only get built once we have actual Republican leadership—no excuses," Huffines said in May 17 statement.
@KannoYoungs@edjsandoval “There is no substantive plan,” said Edna Yang, co-executive director of American Gateways. “It’s not going to make any border community or county safer.” Texas ACLU: “To be clear, this is an attempt to distract from his governing failures while targeting vulnerable immigrants”
@KannoYoungs@nytimes@edjsandoval Our public schools are underfunded, our infrastructure is crumbling, we have one of the highest rates of uninsured but go ahead and pledge to spend money we don’t have on a wall we don’t need. Great idea
