After months of sparring with city leaders, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is following through on a threat to address Austin's homelessness issue.

For months, Abbott has been posting on social media about homeless people allegedly committing crimes around the capital of Texas. On Monday, he ordered an intervention to clean up the city's multiple homeless encampments.

See photos from Austin of Abbott's controversial clean-up of homeless camps in the gallery above.

"It's a slow process and won't be completed in one day, but steady progress is being made," Abbott posted to Twitter Monday, alongside pictures of the work. "Our goal is to make Austin safer while also providing better alternatives for the homeless."

A controversial policy in Austin lets people camp in public. The city also loosened bans panhandling, as well as sitting or lying down on public sidewalks.

Supporters say the policies help stop criminalizing homelessness, while Abbott argues the policy has sparked a crisis in Austin.

Texas, unlike Virginia, knows how to get things done.
