Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that the current situation at the border is the worst he has ever seen. “Texas is doing everything we possibly can to contain a completely out-of-control border situation. This is the worst that I have ever seen it” Abbott said. Texas has taken actions at the border, including negotiating deals with Mexican states and creating its own border wall. However, more than 125,000 people were detained at U.S. borders in Texas in March according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
