Even though the Biden administration halted construction of the border wall in January, Texas decided to take matters into its own hands.
Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin shared photos of the project in a Twitter thread on Friday showing the progress made in the effort ordered by Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.
Melugin reported that the state is using the same contractor that the Trump administration used, which is good news for that company.
The goal is to fill “gaps” in the Starr County region of the Rio Grande Valley, where migrants are constantly flowing through.
In addition, the construction is taking place on state land using state funds, which would make it extremely difficult for the federal government to pursue action against Texas.
