Some Texans want to close the northern border of the state at the Red River as well as the southern border at the Rio Grande. So many people are moving to Texas because of lower taxes and the lack of a state income tax, that some feel that Texas will become crowded. Plenty of good jobs are available, however, because several major cities in Texas are among the fastest growing in population and jobs in America.
So, will Texas close its borders and secede fro the USA or not? Border wars have been prolific for about 300 years on both north and south borders, so citizens and official may indeed become tired of the commotion.
On February 4, 2014 a Texas news commentator on y local Midwest newscasts mentioned that the immigration problem called for tighter border patrols. We hear that every day, do we not? However, he said that the state was thinking about closing off the Red River Border between Oklahoma and Texas in order to stop so many people from moving in from New York.
