Gov. Abbott Tweets Video of Crews Working at the Border
It's summertime in Texas and it seems everybody wants a taste. Vice President Harris visited a border processing center late last week, and in just a few days the former President, Donald Trump, will pay a visit to Texas as well.
As that visit draws near, Governor Greg Abbott tweeted out a video of crews clearing trees and making way for continued word at the border. No longer being referred to as the border wall, we are now hearing the phrase 'Border Barrier'.

Governor Abbott's Plan for June 30th
KIII.com has published the Governor's itinerary for the visit with Trump to include a tour of the Rio Grande Valley so that the former President can actually see what's happening on the ground and meet with those truly being impacted by the events at the border. Abbott has expressed that Vice President Harris could only see a very small part of what is really happening at a border processing center and looks forward to touring 'ground zero' with the former President.
June 30th will feature a press conference from Weslaco at 11:30 A.M that day. Trump will also be taken on a tour of unfinished sections of his former border wall, now apparently turned 'border barrier' by the Governor.
Abbott's Plan to Pay to Finish 'The Wall'
Back in mid-June, Abbott announced his plan to round up about $250 million as a down payment to finish the barrier. He plans on getting that down payment from the state budget by moving money from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to a disaster account. The Texas Tribune says that money can then be put towards work on the barrier. The former President says he is there to show support for ICE and Border Patrol and the great people of Texas.
