Two Texas Republicans are proposing using the state’s rainy-day fund to build the border wall.
State Representatives Briscoe Cain and Kyle Biedermann members of the conservative Texas Freedom Caucus are drafting a new proposal.
Texas is wise to handle their own business and not allow their state to be flooded with illegal immigrants.
State of Texas Considers Building Its Own Border Wall https://t.co/V6FNeVlAv1

Two members of the Texas House of Representatives are preparing a bill that would provide $2.5 billion to fund a border wall. The proposal would take the money from Texas’ “Rainy Day Fund.”
State Representatives Kyle Biedermann (R-Fredricksburg) and Briscoe Cain (R-Deer Park) are working on legislation to take $2.5 billion from the Texas Economic Stabilization Fund, also known as the Rain Day Fund, to provide funding to build a border wall along the Texas border with Mexico. The proposal is still in the drafting phase, sources tell Breitbart News, but a bill could be filed soon.
A source in Rep. Biedermann’s office told Breitbart News on Tuesday that the bill is still in the planning stages but calls for the funds to be allocated to the Office of the Texas Governor, who would oversee the process of allocating funds and getting the wall built.
The funds would be used to design, test, construct, and install physical barriers, roads, and technology along the international land border between Texas and Mexico with a goal of preventing illegal border crossings in those areas, Biedermann told Breitbart News on Sunday.
Breitbart News reached out to the offices of Governor Greg Abbott, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, House Speaker Dennis Bonnen and the Department of Homeland Security for a reaction to the proposal. More
It’s probably the only way you are ever going to get one. Build it in Texas style. Big and tall with barbed wire on top. Everything’s bigger in Texas. Texas can do just about anything it decides is best for Texas history proves this.
Any court challenge would be in the 5th Circuit in Texas where the challenge would be quickly thrown out of court.
