Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says his state is going to go around the federal government and begin construction of its own border wall soon.
Construction of Texas-Mexico border wall will begin soon.
In the Biden Administration's absence, Texas is stepping up to get the job done by building our own border wall.https://t.co/jLEBT0QenL

Construction is expected to begin soon on a 1.7-mile portion of the Texas border wall.
The border wall is part of the initiative announced by Gov. Greg Abbott in June.
Abbott tasked the Texas Facilities Commission with bringing a state border wall to fruition.
During a Nov. 18 TFC meeting, commissioners unanimously approved a design-build contract that will not exceed $162 million for a total of eight miles of border wall that will fill gaps between portions of the federal border wall.
The thing is, you know Texas knows exactly where a wall is needed.
