DOJ Opens Investigation into Operation Lone Star

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas is greeted by U.S. Border Patrol RGV Chief Brian S. Hastings as they prepare to lead a delegation of Congressional representatives on a tour of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Donna Processing Facility in Donna, Texas, May 7, 2021.

President Biden’s Justice Department is investigating Texas’s Operation Lone Star program for potential civil rights violations.

Fox News reports:

The Federal Coordination and Compliance Section of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division sent a letter to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) on May 16, saying that they’ve been made aware of potentially unlawful activity related to the border security mission.

“The Department is seeking this information after receiving information indicating that DPS may be discriminating on the basis of race and/or national origin in its activities related to Operation Lone Star by targeting certain individuals for arrests for misdemeanor trespass violations and traffic stops based on their perceived or actual race or national origin,” Christine Stoneman, the chief of the Federal Coordination and Compliance Section, wrote in the May letter to top DPS officials.

Amanda Hernandez, a spokesperson for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ), said that the DOJ also requested information from them in March 2022 “regarding the agency’s efforts to support Operation Lone Star.”

“TDCJ provided the information that was requested,” Hernandez told Fox News Digital in a statement. “The agency has and continues to follow all state, and federal laws as the state of Texas responds to the ongoing crisis at the border.”

Gov. Greg Abbott launched the operation last year as a response to the Biden administration’s lack of action regarding the ongoing border crisis.

Biden and his leftist supporters apparently intend to allow as many illegal aliens as possible into the Country through their open borders policies and an investigation of those trying to suppress open borders isn’t surprising.

I support the actions that Texas is taking to secure the melee that was foisted on them by vacuum of leadership by Federal officials. The intentional intermingling of random origins or intent , is criminal neglect and dereliction of duty. I predict that Joe Biden’s legacy will show that his feckless oversight should be credited with more deaths than Covid19.

I have a friend who retired to Corpus Christi ten years ago. He grew up there and expected that things had changed. But in the last two years, things have gotten completely out of hand…….all due to illegals. He has had 3 cars stolen, his house has been broken into 5 times, a grill and lawn furniture stolen, etc., etc. He said there isn’t a night one of his neighbors’ alarms doesn’t go off. The HOA has hired a security firm, but it has only been a marginal help. This is ALL due to a lack of border control. 95% of the crime in his area is by illegals !!! Please bring back Trump !!!

Illegal aliens have no constitutional rights or protections, constitutional rights and protections are for US Citizens only not criminals.
Illegal aliens have no rights to be here we are not obligated to allow entry.
The only rights illegal aliens have in our country is the right to be arrested, charged, tried, convicted, sent to prison for a term and then deported.

Feds are over stepping the barrier between states’ rights and the limited duty they the feds actually have.
This administration seems to think it has the power to do what ever it wants. They all need to be sent back to school and study the Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights.
The Federal government was set up with the least power, it is WE THE PEOPLE who hold the power, and that does not mean the minority; as in radical liberals, that means that it is up to us to govern ourselves through the elected representatives.
SADLY; far too many of our reps are now in it only for greed and power; AND THOSE ARE THE ONES WHO NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE!!!

So, because Texas is doing something to stem the tide of illegal immigrants crossing into the U.S due to the regimes disastrous policies..Biden has sicked his Stazi DOJ on them!
Where were all these Congressional Reps when the states were BEGGING them to see for themselves the disaster they were causing?
You know that no matter what they find, it will be twisted into half truths and outright false allegations against the Border Patrol and Texas’ Governor in order to further the leftists agenda of destroying our great country!

What I find impossible to understand is what’s wrong with protecting and securing OUR border. And what rights do those ILLEGAL ALIENS have in the U.S.? Some might not agree but I strongly feel the Border Patrol should be given authority to get really mean and tough with those illegals. Of course Biden MIGHT do something about the mess he’s caused at our southern border. Yeah, when Hell freezes over. Also, as a law abiding citizen I feel law enforcement should be given authority to get REALLY MEAN with criminals. Then fear of getting caught would perhaps keep some of them in line.

The DOJ is being used by Biden and company to convict and punish anyone who is conservative and abides by the law, using the most obvious lies and twists of law to their advantage. IT IS LONG PAST TIME FOR BIDEN AND COMPANY TO BE REMOVED FROM OUR WHITE HOUSE AND CONGRESS. EVERY FEDERAL BUREAU, DEPARTMENT, ADMINISTRATION, COMMITTEE CREATED BY THE COMMUCRATS IS FULL OF LEFTISTS PLANTED THERE BY OBAMA! GET RID OF ALL OF THEM! NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

How about Texas suing the DOJ for violating Texan’s civil rights by failing to enforce federal immigration laws? The executive branch of US government is charged, in the constitution, with enforcing the laws. Biden should be impeached for allowing all manner of terrorists, illegal drugs and other prohibited items to enter the country and endangering citizens.

The Executive Branch, by its failure to enforce immigration law, is depriving us of the “unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Bidens open border policies which are in violation of federal law and his oath to this country and the constitution led Governor Abbott to create Operation Lone Star. Due to Bidens and Mayorkas deliberate negligence. The DOJ can go pound salt. They’re nothing but Democrat controlled Gestapo.

Lets see, Texas is on the southern border next to Mexico. Is there a problem with Swedish immigrants coming across the southern border? NO, We have a problem with Mexicans (and others) coming across our border. Therefore it would make sense to stop not car loads of topless Swedish c volleyball players but car loads of Mexicans. Nothing racist about it. There j uh st happens to be way more of the latter and not enough of the former.
