STARR COUNTY, Texas – Today (August 26) is the last chance for public comments regarding the proposed border wall construction in Starr County.
Nearly 700 comments have been submitted, some in support, others in opposition. The proposed action is to construct a border wall system along Roma, Escobares, La Grulla, and Rio Grande City. The border wall system would consist of 30-foot tall steel posts and enforcement zones with gates and surveillance technology.
Customs and Border Protection says the exact location will depend on environmental concerns, operational requirements, and impact of water flows.
