Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as always to Pirate’s Cove, The Other McCain, and Bacon Time for the Rule Five links!

It seems Texas is taking over where the Imperial City is refusing to act, namely, on completing some of the border wall.  Excerpt:

On Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that his state has officially started building its own southern border wall. “Biden allows open border policies and refuses to enforce laws passed by Congress to secure the border and enforce immigration laws,” said Abbott on Twitter. So, “Texas is stepping up to do the federal government’s job.”

As president, Donald J. Trump made an earnest effort to fulfill his campaign promise to build the southern border wall. He understood that the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border was a priority for most Americans and he made it his as well. 453 miles of the border wall were completed under the Trump Administration, and another 211 miles were under construction as Joe Biden took his presidential oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Since his first days in office, however, Biden has refused to allow the construction of the border wall to continue, even though all the steel panels have already been bought and paid for by American taxpayers.

Granted, this is sure to trigger another complaint from the Imperial City about the state stepping on federal business, but when the Imperial City won’t do one of the few things they are legitimately empowered by the Constitution to do, well, then someone has to step up.

And now, Texas Governor Abbott is going to be that guy.  Good for him.

At any rate it’s kind of good to be well away from that problem.  Our only land border is with the Yukon (and a very small portion with British Columbia) and we don’t have too many Canadians trying to sneak in.
