Abbott has pledged to build a state-funded border wall between Texas and Mexico as a surge of mostly Central American immigrants crossing into the United States has challenged U.S. immigration agencies. So far in 2021, U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 900,000 immigrants crossing into the United States on the southern border.(Brandon Bell | Photo by Brandon Bell/Getty Images)

Building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border was one of Trump’s campaign cornerstones in 2016. Earlier this month, Gov. Abbott announced that the state of Texas would be building a border wall using $250 million in state money and money from crowdfunding. Texas received $459,000 in private donations in just a week.
