Nine border patrol stations, six of them in Texas, will be closed within the next six months.

The interior stations in Texas, that will be shut down are---- Abilene, San Angelo, Dallas, San Antonio, Lubbock and Amarillo.
Officials say, the decision keeps with a plan that will use resources wisely.
Once the nine posts are closed--- there will be a budget savings of 1.3-million-dollars a year.
