The move comes amid rising coronavirus cases among migrants detained at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Governor Greg Abbott today issued an Executive Order restricting ground transportation of migrants who pose a risk of carrying COVID-19 into Texas communities,” the governor’s office said in a release.
“The Executive Order also directed the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to stop any vehicle upon reasonable suspicion of such violation and reroute such vehicles back to its point of origin or a port of entry. DPS also has the authority to impound a vehicle that violates the Executive Order.”” foxnews
Comment: My impression is that the feds (various) have no idea how to deal with a Bidonian policy of open borders and uncontrolled mass immigration from the whole world. Their agencies; CBP, DHS, etc. were built to prevent illegal immigration not to facilitate it. Adding to their disarray is the underlying reality of Democrat hostility to them as groups. Well, not the Cuellar types who are actually from the border, but the Squaddies and their pals. In desperation Abbott is going to try to use laws other than those on immigration (federal jurisdiction and responsibility – however unfulfilled) to hold back the tide. Good luck pal. pl
