Abbott Secures Abandoned Wall Material for Texas Border Wall

As it turns out, all that wall material that was lying on the ground when Biden halted Trump’s border wall will not be going to waste.

Somehow, Governor Greg Abbott got the federal government to donate the abandoned panels to the state of Texas.

The panels are coming from California, 1,700 of them in all, to help secure the southern border.

Abbott’s Border Wall

When Joe Biden halted border wall construction, Texas Governor Greg Abbott vowed to take care of it on its own.

From a Texas resident standpoint, it was great, but why do we have to pay for a wall twice?

As it turns out, we will not be.

Texas Facilities Commission spokeswoman Francoise Luca requested the panels through the General Services Administration.

This agency oversees the distribution of property that the federal government will not be using or for which it has no use.

It was a brilliant move and one that paid off.

Those panels will help construct about 1.7 miles of Texas border wall.

Rather than paying for the cost of the panels, Abbott got stuck with a much smaller tab of about $2 million to have them shipped from California to Texas.

Abbott has earmarked $1 billion for the project.

When Biden halted the wall, there were hundreds of millions of dollars of unused supplies that had been abandoned.

Luca just saved Texans a boatload of money, and if there is more available, Luca plans on getting that as well.

Luca stated, “We will continue to monitor the General Services Administration material list, and if there’s ever anything that we can use for construction, we’re open to that.”

God bless the great state of Texas!
