In lieu of a border wall, Texas governor implements “steel barrier”
Amid the migrant crisis in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said law enforcement officials implemented a “steel barrier” of vehicles to block migrants from crossing the border.
“They have created a steel barrier preventing people from being able to cross the border,” Abbott said at a press conference Tuesday.
“One day there were countless people coming across the border, then the very same day the Texas Department of Public Safety put up all these DPS vehicles, and suddenly, in an instant, people stopped crossing the border in this location. That strategy is working.”
Abbott said the vehicular barrier is “miles” long. The Lone Star state’s governor said the Biden administration is “promoting and allowing open border policies.”
“The only thing they’ve shown is an incapability of dealing with this crisis, candidly in a way where they pretend it doesn’t even exist,” the Republican governor said at a press conference. “And we’re here to tell you, it exists and it’s total chaos and the Biden administration — they need to up their game, big time.”
