Biden Admin Suing Governor Greg Abbott For Trying To Protect Texans From Immigrants Who May Have COVID

The Biden administration is doing absolutely nothing about the thousands of illegal immigrants flowing across the southern border, despite the fact that many of them are probably not vaccinated and could be carrying COVID.

As a result, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is taking various steps to protect the people of his state.

For the crime of trying to protect American citizens in Texas, the Biden Justice Department is now suing Greg Abbott.

Is this still America?

The U.S. Justice Department on Friday sued Texas and its governor, Greg Abbott, to block a state executive order aimed at restricting the travel of undocumented migrants who could potentially transmit Covid-19.

The complaint states that Abbott’s executive order, issued Wednesday, interferes with the federal government’s ability to lawfully release and transport migrants, adding it violates intergovernmental immunity.

“No State may obstruct the Federal Government in the discharge of its constitutional responsibilities,” the department said in its complaint filed with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in El Paso.

The lawsuit comes a day after Attorney General Merrick Garland threatened to pursue “legal remedies” if Abbott failed to rescind the executive order.

Abbott’s order limits the ground transportation of illegal migrants recently released from U.S. Border Patrol custody “who pose a risk of carrying Covid-19 into Texas communities.”

It directs the Texas Department of Public Safety to stop and turn around vehicles suspected of carrying such migrants, and cites the surge of people crossing the Texas-Mexico border as an “ongoing and imminent” threat.

Abbott has been responding to the situation on Twitter:

It’s just astounding that Abbott is having to deal with this from our own federal govenment.

Where do they think this leads?
