Bill to Help Build the Border States Wall Introduced by Cong, Babin


"This bill reinforces Republican Governors around the country who are sending resources to Texas and Arizona, and I am proud to join in this effort.”

Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – "On day one of his presidency, Biden set in motion the worst border crisis in our nation’s history,” said Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36) as he introduced a bill to help Southern Border States fund construction of their own Border Wall.

“Central to that was his presidential proclamation to pause construction of President Trump’s border wall," said Cong. Babin (right.)

Biden's legislation, "The Securing our Border States Act," would establish a block grant program, the “Empowering States to Build the Wall Fund,” for border states to continue constructing a barrier along their borders with Mexico. Once the Governor of a southwest border state certifies that they want funding for wall construction, the money will go directly to them – eliminating the ability for a president to stop the funding for political reasons based upon non-state determined decisions.
 
“The only viable path to fixing this dire situation is to put resources directly into the hands of the states and bypass the Biden administration and their political games entirely," Babin said. 

"This bill reinforces Republican Governors around the country who are sending resources to Texas and Arizona, and I am proud to join in this effort​​​​​​​."

This bill is a joint effort with the Republican Study Committee and is supported by Congressmen:
 
  • Rick Allen (GA-12)
  • Jim Banks (IN-03)
  • Jerry Carl (AL-01)
  • Kat Cammack (FL-03)

  • Ralph Norman (SC-05)
  • Randy Weber (TX-14)
  • Rob Wittman (VA-01), and
“Without physical barriers, border agents have little chance of stopping much of anything coming across our wide-open southwest border. Drug smugglers and human traffickers simply go through the countless gaps of unfinished wall, evading our agents and burdening and endangering our border states," said Babin.
