It’s A “Constitutional Crisis”; Governor Abbott Goes After Biden Administration

From the proverbial grab-bag of impeachable, illegal, and at any rate, unconstitutional offense committed by the Biden administration, it would seem his handling of the U.S.-Mexico border crisis and its wide-ranging and far-reaching consequences would be most salient.

In fact, GOP Texas Governor Greg Abbott had some choice words for Biden and his administration following its interference where it sued Texas in an effort to block an executive order from Abbott that allowed state troopers to stop vehicles suspected of carrying illegal immigrants on the grounds that they may be spreading COVID-19.

As reported by Newsweek, “The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Texas over Abbott’s executive order on Friday. Within hours, Abbott issued a statement insisting that his order was aimed at protecting public health amid the COVID-19 pandemic while vowing that he has “no intention of abdicating” his “responsibility to protect the people of Texas.” The same article went on to report that the “… Biden Administration has created a constitutional crisis between the federal government and the State of Texas,” Abbott said. “This stems from the Biden Administration’s refusal to enforce immigration laws and allow illegal immigrants with COVID-19 to enter our country.”

“The Raging Patriot” has previously reported on the migrant crisis, in general, and the COVID spreading issue, specifically. It was reported that

According to NBC News, “More than 18 percent of migrant families and 20 percent of unaccompanied minors who recently crossed the U.S. border tested positive for COVID on leaving Border Patrol custody over the past two to three weeks.”

NBC went on to report that, “Migrants are not tested for COVID in Border Patrol custody unless they show symptoms, but all are tested when they leave Border Patrol custody, according to DHS officials. Immigrants who are allowed to stay in the U.S. to claim asylum are given tests when they are transferred to ICE, Health and Human Services or non-governmental organizations. Deportees who are scheduled to be put on planes out of the U.S. are tested for COVID and other infectious diseases by ICE.”‘As of Wednesday, more than 15,000 migrants were in Border Patrol custody, according to Customs and Border Protection data obtained by NBC News.’ “If a migrant who is about to be deported by ICE tests positive for Covid, the migrant is quarantined and deportation is delayed, according to DHS. The document refers specifically to those migrants chosen for “expedited removal,” meaning they were deported soon after they crossed or attempted to cross the U.S. border.”
