Gov. Abbott reveals clever way Texas is using shipping containers to stop illegal immigration

Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) laid out some of the immediate actions that the state of Texas was taking under his leadership to slow down the surge of illegal immigration that has happened under the Biden administration, including using large shipping containers as makeshift border barriers to block migrants from illegally entering the U.S.

“We now have 6,500 National Guard and DPS troopers on the border to help secure the border,” Abbott said. “And as we’re talking right now, they are identifying locations on the border, where they are laying down razor wire to secure all the possible crossings that these caravans may be coming to.”

“And then in addition to that, beginning today, we begin dropping these large containers that you see on 18 wheelers, that you also see on these ships that are going across the ocean, we’re dropping them down on locations that could be crossings that would be used by these caravans to serve as a blockade to prevent them from becoming across the border,” Abbott continued. “And then on top of that, if they do do come across the border, the National Guard of the Texas Department of Public Safety, they are authorized to arrest, you know, these people who make it through our blockade efforts and put them in jail for violating a crime of criminal trespass in the state of Texas. And Tucker, on top of that, Texas is stepping up and we are building our own border wall, that process has already begun. We’re in the process of getting bids on it. And I’m told to expect part of the Texas wall to be completed before the end of this calendar year.”
