AUSTIN, TX - The Texas legislature has approved construction of a border wall surrounding the state in order to keep out unwanted refugees fleeing the rapidly crumbling dystopia of California.
The legislature has been faced with an increasing number of Californians seeking asylum after fleeing the unhinged, far-left state, and finally found a solution.
Construction began shortly after the measure was passed. The wall will run around the entirety of Texas, with extra security measures on the west side of the state to ensure undesirable Californian immigrants can't make it across. While low-traffic areas like the north and east sides of the state will be protected by a simple fence, the west side will feature a 10-foot-thick concrete wall with laser turrets, barbed wire, and a moat filled with sharks to stop residents of the coastal state from slipping in undocumented and undetected.
A recent conversation about changing the name of the city of Austin to be more politically correct opened lawmakers' eyes to just how many liberal California residents had come to the state in recent years, bringing their crazy ideas with them.
"Far too many immigrants from California come here, take advantage of our pro-business, pro-liberty laws, and refuse to adjust to our way of life," one Texas state rep said in an address to the assembly. "It is time for us to build a wall and make California pay for it."
