Border barrier construction underway in Eagle Pass
Work kicked off Monday on building Gov. Greg Abbott’s border barrier.
In a tweet, Abbott showed crew clearing state-owned land in Eagle Pass for construction.
Officials say crowdfunding efforts for the wall have reached $619,000.

The 1st step is to get easements on land.
The 2nd step is to clear the land for the building process.
That is what is happening here.
