Joe Biden may not want a border wall, but Texans do, and it is about to happen.
According to reports, the office overseeing the border wall project is about to award a massive contract to build a barrier that will stretch the 700+ miles along the Texas-Mexico border.
If reports are accurate, before the week is done, the contract could be awarded.
Build That Wall
As we all know by now, Trump’s border wall project faced delays right from the outset.
Trump was able to replace much of the old fencing as well as begin some new construction, but it was hardly what he had hoped for having up by the time he left office.
Even though there was significantly more of the wall that had been contracted, Biden pulled the plug.
Now Texas is going to pick up the project, at least to protect its own border.
The Texas Facilities Commission will write a check for about $1B to fund its own border wall project.
If all goes according to plan, Texas will have 733 miles of fresh border wall to help deter illegal immigration.
