This idea by the Texas Governor is so absurd that even Texas land owners are not on his side. It is such a waste of tax-payer resources to attempt to get the land when even under the Trump administration they were unable to convince these land owners to give up land that has been in their family since Texas was owned by Spain.
What th Governor is doing here is only creating a distraction from all of the other egregious actions the Statehouse has taken. This move is to simply serve as a distraction and grandstanding to distract people from the real problems.
Theater of the political absurd

AUSTIN, Texas—The state will begin efforts to build its own wall along its border with Mexico, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced Wednesday, saying the state was prompted to take action since President Biden has pulled back on former President Donald Trump’s border wall plans.
The League of United Latin American Citizens, the nation’s largest Latino civil rights organization, indicated in a news release that it intends to fight Mr. Abbott’s move in court. Domingo Garcia, LULAC’s national president, called the effort a waste of taxpayer money and an illegal use of state powers. “It’s political grandstanding and it’s gutter politics,” Mr. Garcia said.
