The Texas Tribune reports:
Gov. Greg Abbott is scheduled to deliver remarks at 3 p.m. Central at the state Capitol detailing his plans to build a border wall.
Last week, Abbott hinted during a self-styled border summit in Del Rio that he would create a border barrier to stem the flow of immigrants and illegal drugs into the state, but he did not give details on where the barrier would be built or how it would be funded.
On Tuesday morning, Abbott told “Ruthless,” a podcast about Republican politics, that the state would solicit donations from across the country to help pay for the wall. On Tuesday, Trump said he received and has accepted an invitation from Abbott to tour the border at the end of the month.
BREAKING: @GovAbbott just announced his plan to build a border wall, arrest and jail migrants, and form an interstate compact with Arizona to police the border.
To be clear, this is an attempt to distract from his governing failures while targeting vulnerable migrants.
