WASHINGTON: Texas will announce plans next week to build a wall along its border with Mexico, the US state’s governor Greg Abbott has said, reports AFP.

The Republican politician said he wanted a resumption of the work launched under former president Donald Trump and which stopped on the first day of President Joe Biden’s term.

Abbott did not provide details about his plans for the wall, and there are lingering doubts about the feasibility of the project in Texas, since part of the land on the border belongs to the federal government or to individuals.
