Are Abbott’s border efforts are working? | Landowners get state support in high speed rail eminent domain case – Pratt on Texas 12/20/2021

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Governor Abbott showed off Texas new border wall construction Saturday in Starr County and there is much we need to review and consider about Texas’ efforts on the border. One thing we must evaluate is the effectiveness of programs Texas has already implemented. How can we claim the “arrest and jail” policy is working when it has not proved a deterrent to illegal crossing? That was the promise, that as many would not come if they knew they’d be jailed but we are jailing them and yet seeing all-time records in illegal crossings. As to the wall, is it likely to make much of a difference giving it will not connect to federal segments and sits a mile away from the Rio Grande?
