Governor Greg Abbott is signing a $2 billion bill into law to boost Texas's border security. As Abbott signed the bill he said, "Texas is stepping up and doing what the federal government is supposed to do." The bill will fund state troopers and national guards to police the border, along with a potential fence. The bill has been met with criticism by Democrats, who say it is a huge waste of money. Domingo Garcia, a Democratic activist and former state representative, says Abbott is using refugees at the border as a political pinatas and scapegoats.
