“We need to build the border wall in certain strategic areas, and it’s going to be tomorrow that I make the public announcement about exactly what the Texas plan is for building the border wall,” Abbott said during a recent conversation he had with Newsmax‘s “Greg Kelly Reports.”

He appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to handle the situation, essentially passing the buck, but she has basically done nothing to solve the problem either.

Neither of the two have visited the border.

“President Trump was highly engaged and he remained in active communication with me during the entirety of his presidency,” Abbott went on to say.

“Obviously President Trump was controlling the border far better than President Biden is,” he continued.
