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.

Abbott declared his plans during a press conference in Del Rio. He said he would discuss the plans next week. The Biden administration issued a proclamation that stopped border wall construction on his first day of office.

Abbott announced the news while discussing a slew of border initiatives, such as a $1 billion allocation for border security in the state budget lawmakers just passed and a plan to establish a Governor’s Task Force on Border and Homeland Security with public safety and state government officials.

“It will help all of us to work on ways to stem the flow of unlawful immigration and to stem the flow of illegal contraband,” Abbott said, while seated next to officials from the National Guard, Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Division of Emergency Management.

Good luck with that, you POS.

3. Is Mexico cool with building it on their side of the Rio Grande?

Or is Gov. Abbott going to just give away all U.S. access and rights to the Rio Grande?

8. Don't forget about the golf course

South Texas Resort Includes a Pool, a Golf Course and, Maybe, a Border Wall
At a community for older adults, President Trump’s proposed border wall would strand about 70 percent of residences south of the barricade but north of the Rio Grande.
