Texas began rolling out this past Friday a about on the Rio Grande in Governor Abbott's latest attempt to secure the southern border.

Abbott has sent the National Guard to the border in order to address the illegal border crossings which have seen a spike in numbers. This also comes as President Biden stopped the implementation of Title 42 this past May a Trump-era policy that turned away asylum seekers back to Mexico.

Tragedies have occurred at the southern border as recently four migrants and an infant drowned while trying to cross the Rio Grande.

The floating barrier will be 1,000 ft long and will anchored in the riverbed.
