The state of Texas has resumed building a wall along the state’s border with Mexico, after months of negotiations with private property owners.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott posted a video on social media of the wall being constructed.
The video that accompanied the tweet showed a crane maneuvering a section of wall in line with several other panels, and workers plugging it into place. In the forefront was Abbot sitting next to a sign that read, "Securing the border."
Footage of the wall construction was shot on Jan. 30 when Abbott held a press conference at the border to announce the appointment of veteran Border Patrol agent Mike Banks to serve as the first-ever border czar.
