Texas Builds Makeshift Border Walls in Popular Migrant Crossing Locations

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is taking initiative to stop the border crisis from spiraling further, installing makeshift border walls constructed from repurposed shipping containers in locations where migrants are likely to cross.

Rep. Troy Nehls called the new structures “a great idea.” 

“It’s a tool that the governor is using to try to help slow down, curb this invasion, this invasion that we’re seeing at our southern border,” Nehls said, per Fox News

He described the construction as a “defensive position” to “channel” migrants into areas with increased Border Patrol presence. 

“We have 1,250 miles of border in Texas. That’s a lot of area to cover and we’re doing the federal government’s job for them because they refuse to do it on their own,” he added. 

Gov. Abbott laid out the specifics of the border wall plan with Tucker Carlson on October 28. 

“We begin dropping these large containers that you see on 18 wheelers, you also see on these ships that are going across the ocean,” Abbott said. “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 coming across the border.”

Abbott said he has also dispatched 6,500 National Guard and DPS troopers to help contain the migrant caravan surge.
