The Democrat president ordered the suspension of many of Trump’s immigration policies on his first day in office, including the Republican’s iconic project to build a border wall with Mexico that was supposed to help curb the influx of illegal migrants into the country.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has announced plans to build a wall along the state’s border with Mexico, which became the source of a record-high influx of illegal migrants this year. It is no coincidence that the governor’s plan sounds similar to the one of former POTUS Donald Trump – Abbott said the move to build the state wall emerged as a response to a decision by President Joe Biden to revoke his predecessor’s policies on immigration – including plans for building the border wall.
Abbott said that the plan for building the wall in Texas will be laid out next week alongside other security measures.
Additional security measures in Texas will include building state-level detention centres for illegal migrants. In total, The Lone Star State is planning to spend $1 billion on enhancing border security.
The Texas governor also announced that his state will be arresting illegal aliens and sending them to local jails instead of handing them over to the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
