Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Launches Construction of State Border Wall
"Texas is building its own border wall. And this is good news. I got to give kudos to governor Abbott. Texas is officially started construction on a border wall. Let's remember, this is the border wall that the Biden administration has refused to carry through on. The government, by the way, paid for all kinds of construction materials. They're just sitting there, and the Biden people have not only said that we're not going to use them, even though we paid for them, but we're not going to let Texas use them. So think of how malicious these people are, even though the funds have been expended, they are trying to block the idea of Texas moving forward. But Texas is saying, listen, we're going to build a wall, we're going to fill gaps in the wall that are there now. And we're going to do it starting now.

The problem When you vote by mail is you simply have a signature verification. That's Chuck DeVore, who was part of that report. The main issue is the mail in ballots. The Dems just want them to have signatures, while Republicans want a little more for security. Their driver's license number or their state ID number or the last four their Social Security number.

"The governor followed through with his promise. Devito the legislature's budget when it comes to paying those who walked out during the voting law discussion will now a bunch of the texas democrats are not happy about that and fighting back joining us with the very latest on. The story is clayton neville. So who's saying what well the question's going to be. How much legal ground to the democrats have to stand on because what the democrats are saying that what the governor is doing isn't right and what the governor doing is basically. He vetoed a line in the budget that allows legislators to get paid and so as of now they wouldn't get paid now. Maybe that could change. We know that the governor is calling another special session for legislators to come back. This is all about that. Voting bill because house democrats walked out. The governor said. They didn't do their jobs so they're not going to get paid if they come back and get the job done then. Maybe this won't be an issue and they will get paid but as of now. The governor has vetoed that line and talk to chris turner. He is the chairman of the house democratic caucus. He said yesterday they are exploring their legal options and are going to pursue this right now though they wanna find out how much legal ground they have to stand on. I talked to several political experts. Who said by law. Technically the governor have the legal right to lead veto align out of the budget. And that's simply what this was and it's not just money for lawmakers but it's money for other workers as well. Yeah and. I think that's really the most important hard hitting thing about this. Is you know somebody asked me well. Who cares you know the lawmakers. They all have their own jobs. They don't even get paid that much. Anyway stay representatives or state senators. Well there Secretary or their chief of staff. They rely on that money. That's their job so it's almost more important to them. Not in every case but in a lot of cases almost more important to the staff that would be included in this veto. And when would that take effect when when the money stop flowing in that particular category. Well it'll be some time because this was the budget getting approved so that money would actually have to you know. Start flowing into the state and be cut back later. This year would be the rough answer but again it's still up in the air because of the fact that the governor is still inviting these lawmakers back to the table to have this discussion on voting rights. But so far. The governor has made good on his promise when he signed the budget. He took that part out but he hasn't said a special session date yet not yet. What is he waiting for. Well there's going to be several special sessions one to talk about some of the covid money that texas got. Where can we put it. That'll be later in the year. Could be december. There could be one later this summer. We don't know which one will go. I my guess is that The covid money could come later in the year and maybe the voting rights bill could come early fall. That is just a guest though. Based on what i'm hearing so we'll see but later this year is what we're looking at all right clayton. Thanks so much for the update clayton neville reporting live..

State teachers had to discuss current events and America's history of racism in the classroom. The legislation takes aim at banning critical race theory in K through 12 public school classrooms. And that's defined as the concept in which race is socially constructed, ingrained in American law intended to maintain social, economic and political inequalities between whites and non whites really hard to define critical race theory really hard to put it into legal terms. That would make it enforceable. But I think it's pretty clear that the intent of the legislation and the law is to say Look, you can't you can't teach kids that white people are bad. And I've always been bad and that racism is ingrained in our society Exactly. You know, you've got to be honest about it. You gotta talk the unit teach history the way it went down, point out the mistakes point out how bad slavery was. But don't let these kids go home feeling.
