Where there’s a will, there’s a way, and nobody seems to embody the spirit of that statement more so than Texans.
The Lone Star State is unique in many regards here in the United States, but their fiercely independent spirit often tops the list of reasons why Texans are like no-one else. Their governor, Greg Abbott, is no exception either, and has been ruthlessly calling the White House to the carpet over their inaction on the border crisis.
This week, Abbott took his rhetoric up a notch.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced his state has allocated $1 billion in its fiscal year budget toward border security, telling “The Ingraham Angle” on Thursday he will use part of that money to resume the construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall started by Donald Trump but hastily halted by President Biden.

The humanitarian calamity that continues to occur at the border has been made ever-more heartbreaking by the reluctance of Vice President Kamala Harris to visit, despite having been tasked with solving the crisis 70+ days ago.
