Galveston County is joining others in southeast Texas in sending COVID-19 relief funds and other resources to help build the border wall.

A judge signed a three-page disaster declaration Tuesday that designates more than six-million dollars for border wall construction. That money is coming directly from the American Rescue Plan to provide pandemic relief.

The judge who signed the declaration says there has been an increase in violent crime and drugs coming from the border since the pandemic and that the rise in illegal border crossings is a health threat.
