Texas lawmaker looking to do what Biden will not. Finish wall to keep out future Democrats. Since Biden decided to leave Texans unprotected, a state representative decided to try and protect the good citizens.
Rep. Bryan Slaton (R-Canton) filed legislation on Thursday to direct the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to finish former President Trump’s border wall project using state funds.
The state representative contended that President Biden should not stop Texans from finishing what the last administration started. The bill stipulates that the governor of Texas would seek reimbursement from the federal government for amounts spent from the border projects fund.
According to Customs and Border Patrol, 281 miles of border wall have been completed or are under construction or in preconstruction in Texas as of the beginning of the year.17
