The statement of intent said it best.
"Pursuant to the United States Constitution, the federal government is vested with the responsibility to secure international borders. The federal government, however, has repeatedly refused to allocate the resources necessary to fulfill its constitutional duty to secure the nation's southern border with Mexico."
Clearly the federal government is not fulfilling its Constitutional responsibility to secure the border, causing the state of Texas to step up to fill the void that the federal level has caused. The state of Texas should be reimbursed for the expenses that have accrued due to the federal government's dereliction of its Constitutional duties.
