U.S. Attorney General Threatens to Sue State Over New Immigration Order

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland instructed Texas Governor Greg Abbott to immediately rescind his order or face the consequences. Abbott just signed into effect an order restricting the current surge of immigrants from coming into Texas to help curb COVID-19.

The Daily Wire reports:

According to the governor’s website, Abbott signed the executive order “restricting ground transportation of migrants who pose a risk of carrying COVID-19 into Texas communities.” It 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.”

Garland wrote a letter to Gov. Abbott telling him to immediately halt the order over concern for the safety and well being of “noncitizens in federal govern­ment custody, federal law enforcement personnel and their families, and our communities.”

He also stated that it “di­rectly interferes with the implementation of federal immigration law.”

“Texas has no authority to interfere with the United States’ ‘broad, un­-doubted power over the subject of immigration’ by impairing the United States’ release of individuals and the ability of those individuals to comply with federal immigration law,” Garland added.

Garland concluded his letter by saying that if Abbott does not rescind the order, he was providing notice that “the United States intends to pursue all appropriate legal remedies to ensure that Texas does not interfere with the functions of the federal govern­ment.”

Governor Abbott has been one of Biden’s fiercest critics regarding immigration laws. Since Biden became President he’s allowed an overflow of illegal immigrants to flood border states and quickly deplete border resources and spread COVID-19.

This administration is totally corrupt. They have ignored the border crisis totally. They refuse to help the border states, and Biden and company have broken their oaths of office according to the constitution. If anything, these are impeachment crimes by not protecting the United States of America. At this point, it’s disturbing to me that there are not more people in congress demanding something to be done. No excuse for not every GOP member in the House and Senate to scream about this. Stop focusing on 2022, fix the problem because if you don’t do something and show your backbone to your constituents they will remember at the ballot box!

I love everything Sonja said She is exactly right. Our Republican representatives all talk about how awful things are and shake their heads everyday on the news. It appears that’s as far as they can get.

The U.S.Attorney should be going after so called president Biden for not protecting the U.S. citizens. Instead of going after the Texas governor.

He won’t because they are in this together to bring in as many illegals to the US as they can…..I wish all the states would sue the Federal Government over this.

You’re so right. We need defensible borders and compliance to our immigration laws.
We now have a new COVID resurgence and the introduction of Monkeypox (similar to Smallpox) thanks to the lax approach of the Biden Administration. Mr. Garland appears to be a political hack of the first order.

States have the right, nay, responsibility to protect its citizenry from what it considers to be a genuine danger. Just as the united states together have a duty of protection for all the people. Governor Abbott, hold your ground!

I can’t wait until these STUPID peace’s of s**t are out of office. We know that the Delta Variant originated in South America, and we are asked to believe that it started in the south. Well that is correct it did start in the south SOUTH AMERICA!!!!!!!!! The illegals pouring in this country so the Democrats can pass their election voters rights (Yeah Sure) to send out unsolicited absentee ballots and have boxes out so anyone can drop off hundreds of ballots without a signature or an ID number. These people are her on our dime taking up our tax money to get medical, welfare, housing and food stamps. We are not a country that can afford to take care of everyone in he world. It amazes me that Congress sends our taxes over to countries that hate us and allows citizens in this country to destroy property and preach hate while saying they don’t want to be hated. I think we need o take the purse out of the hands of Congress and pass laws that require them to have a state by state vote to spend any money that will go out of this country. I also think that we have to demand that any official who gives to others who are not in this country tax payer money’s go to jail for 50 years without chance for parole. I Am TIRED OF BEING A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN IN THE COUNTRY I SERVICED IN THE MILITARY TO PROTECT. STOP NOW

He MIGHT have a point, IF the Feds were enforcing Federal immigration LAW, instead of acting on EOs that are not law & NOT protecting any of America’s citizens, Federal employees or otherwise. But since none of that is happening, Abbott’s plan at least makes an effort to contain the diseased, & protect as many citizens as possible. They are also more likely to “show up” for their hearings, when confined ’til said hearing, than when turned loose in America, with some vague request to report to an office! McConnell was RIGHT to block this dud from the SCOTUS bench; he’d be a worse disaster there, than he is where he is now. When the Feds FAILto do their jobs & defend our international borders, it falls to the states whose borders those are to do so, for the defense of their own citizens. Gov Abbott understands that, & is acting accordingly. Mr Garland should be advised it’s not wise to mess with TX… There are more than enough of us fed up with the globalist crap to want out. That just might be enough to push it over the line…

It’s an unconditional law from 1948 that allows federal jurisdiction on state owner property. Federal laws only apply to Federal territory! This is a Globalist usurpation of authority! DemoncRat supported I’m sure! Call out the state guards, and ship the illegal free loaders to the District of Criminals and they can camp out at the White House

Here’s a bit of a true history lesson. The 10 Lost Tribes of Israel never returned to the Holy Land! They were the Barbarian Tribes who migrated to W Europe during the Roman Empire and later to N America. Zachariah 2:7-9 tells the Apple of GODs eye to throw off the Mystery Babylon oppressors (Deep State) we get that definition from Jeremiah 49:23 and on, through chapter 51. It must be noted that the Jews wrote the entire Bible save for the book of Luke. Often times the reference to Israel are to the 10 Lost Tribes not the little country we know today which would be properly called Judeah. Zachariah chapter 13, GOD says that HE will destroy 2/3 of the Jews! Why? They are not really all Jews as Revelation 2:9 & 3:9 State, these would be the Khazars, Edomites and Canaanites. NOT MY WORDS! So best get saved and get to studying! Good Luck! Hope this helps.
