Texas Begins Construction of Makeshift Border Barrier

Don’t mess with Texas.

The Lone Star state is taking matters into its own hands and creating its own defense against illegal immigration. According to Gov. Greg Abbott, the state is using shipping containers in addition to other measures along the El Paso border to build a border wall.

The move comes as El Paso saw an average of 2,400 migrants per day entering over one seven-day period, leading the city to declare an emergency. 

“Texas is adding shipping containers to the US-Mexico border in El Paso,” Abbott tweeted on Wednesday. “This is in addition to the razor wire and National Guard. Together, the strategies are causing illegal immigration at that location to plummet.”

Abbott’s announcement also came shortly after he provided an update to announce that Texas has bused 15,900 migrants to sanctuary cities in 2022.

Abbott shared the update in a Twitter post with details on the number of migrants sent to each of the four included cities. The totals included over 8,900 migrants bused to Washington, D.C., over 4,900 to New York City, over 1,500 to Chicago, and over 690 to Philadelphia.

Gov. Abbott linked to a San Antonio Fox 29 report on the barrier:

Shipping containers were placed next to the Rio Grande in El Paso in hopes of diverting people crossing.

In El Paso, the state of Texas lined up new shipping containers.

The Lone Star state seems to be following the lead of Arizona which also used shipping containers to form a makeshift border wall to fill gaps left unresolved by the Biden administration.

The Biden administration eventually sued the state of Arizona to remove the containers, claiming the state trespassed into federal lands.


  1. When the communists told us they would “assist” American leaders with socialism until we wake up one day and find we’re communists at last, you have to wonder if the commies made it to………..

  2. Biden is a traitor and should be put on trial for Treason against the United States of America and for not protecting and upholding the Constitution. No president has ever done this before.

  3. Praise Abbott for protecting citizens of TX and the rest of us !! Biden and Democrats are Destroying America ! Gutless wonder Ducey removed the rail cars so Hobbs the Democrat would please Biden when she takes office which is another Shameful Disgrace ! AZ will pay dearly for this as our state will be overrun by Illegals that the University will welcome with free this and that as will Hobbs and others. Nothing good happens in Maricopa county any longer.

  4. If Hobbs is allowed to hold the position of Governor we would have to succeed to be rid of her as the Univ. of AZ will back her along with others.

  5. In Texas we have a governor willing to stand up to FJB and stick it to him and his FBI DOJ – they’re total scumbags. We have a right to a secure border and a secure nation. Its not Biden’s border – it’s our border. This is insane – why are we not doing something about this asshole in the WH? We have to put up with this crap and when we send illegals to his backyard – the woke mob screams bloody murder. Then when scores of people are dying from a weather emergency what does Joe do? Joe goes on vacation. We have got to get this low life out of the people’s house. By any means necessary.

  6. We ARE to stand against corruption & injustice, however, We do not fight against flesh & blood but against the rulers, authorities and against the powers of this dark world, & the enemy(…ahhh let’s see who could that be???) is furious working overtime as he knows his end is near. There will be hell to pay. Fred your idea sure sounds like what a good part of America would like to do, secede & take our tax $$ with us

  7. As a salesman and business owner I traveled Texas, New Mexico and Arizona for over 30 years. I personally turned in a number of Illegals to the Border Patrol. They are a top notch group of men and women. I personally know of situations where illegals arrived in small New Mexico towns with lists of demands,, Ex: food, housing, kids schooling , food stamps etc. And the state gave it to them!

  8. The plan is to kill off American citizens with the “shot”, no food, no heating oil/gas. The illegals will do the bidding of the communist regime in dc. They will be allowed to vote. Do you not see this?

  9. Yes, flying the bill to him. This must cost nothing, hun? OOOh right…the American tax payer will take of it. Good Grief, why didn’t he sign it first, then go on this “needed” wonderful vacation? What a bunch of baloney. This man is so out of touch. Hope he is enjoying the warm and sunny days. Maybe he’ll get a bad sunburn, sure hope not tho, that could be painful on tender skin. Ahem……

  10. Stack them up 4 high and put oil/grease on them so they can’t be scaled!!!! No one in Texas is safe and it’s coming to a state you’re in soon!!! We MUST DEFY this illegal behavior by our OWN GOVERNMENT!

  11. RINO Gov. Abbott is purposely helping the Democrats and using Texas tax money also to bus illegal aliens.

    Did’ja ever wonder …why Congress, Texas and Arizona …caved the next 68 years to the ranchers and farmers …after President Eisenhower ran all the illegal aliens out in Operation W e t b a c k ? Bribes perhaps?? Ya, that was it.

    How Eisenhower solved illegal border crossings from Mexico
    July 6, 2006 By John Dillin > > > Note the archive date!


    George W. Bush isn’t the first Republican president to face a full-blown immigration crisis on the US-Mexican border.

    Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America’s southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond.

    President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today’s force. The operation is still highly praised among veterans of the Border Patrol.

  12. Border Patrol Dudes,

    Your job is not to follow Xiden’s and Obama’s past immigration E.O.’s! They are NOT law and can be ignored!

    Dereliction of duty is a specific offense under United States Code Title 10, Section 892, Article 92 and applies to all branches of the US military. A service member who is derelict has willfully refused to perform his duties or has incapacitated himself in such a way that he cannot perform his duties.
