DEL RIO, TX- On Thursday, June 10th, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that Texas will build its own border wall along the states boundary with Mexico.

Gov. Abbott told Breitbart Texas that the state will immediately begin building border barriers in areas like Del Rio where illegal immigrants can easily cross unsecured sections of the Rio Grande. There has been a massive increase in illegal border crossings in the Del Rio region.

As of recent, Del Rio Sector agents have apprehended 27,890 illegal immigrants, which is a 1,118 percent increase over the May 2020 report of 2,289. Shortly before his public announcement, Abbott said to Breitbart Texas:

“The influx across the border is out of control and the Biden administration has shown that it is not going to step up and do its job. And amidst reports of even more people coming in across the border, we know we have to step up and do more.”
