Greg Abbott, the governor of the Texas Republican Party, spoke to the state’s Republican county chairs on Friday. He touched on the recent decision to erect floating barriers along the Rio Grande in a bid to lessen illegal immigration.
According to Fox 7, Abbott discussed his administration’s response to the flood of migrants crossing the border illegally into Texas during his speech in Georgetown, Texas.
“I will do whatever I have to do to defend our state from the invasion of the Mexican drug cartels and others who have tried to come into our country illegally, and I will protect our sovereignty,” Abbott said.
The governor bragged about his most recent choice to have Operation Lone Star’s floating border wall constructed in the Rio Grande.
Operation Hold the Line, he explained. They are policing the area and making sure that no one enters Texas illegally.
