The Justice Department argued that Abbott’s order violates the supremacy clause of the Constitution and “directly interferes with the administration of federal immigration law.”
“The order would endanger the health and safety of non-citizens in the custody of the federal government, federal law enforcement personnel and their families, and our communities,” Garland wrote Thursday as it puts Americans in danger by flooding the US. With illegals infested with Covid.
Governor Abbott responded to the federal lawsuit on his executive order on Friday:
“The Biden Administration has created a constitutional crisis between the federal government and the state of Texas. This is due to the Biden Administration’s refusal to enforce immigration laws and allow illegal immigrants with COVID-19 to enter our country. As our communities are invaded and overwhelmed by the record influx of migrants, cartels and smugglers profit from the chaos. Not only that, but this crisis also extends beyond the border as deadly drugs like fentanyl infiltrate our communities. This already dangerous situation continues to deteriorate as the Biden Administration knowingly imports COVID-19 into Texas from across the border, intentionally exposing both Texans and Americans. President Biden has a duty and responsibility to protect and defend our nation’s sovereignty, but he long ago abdicated his authority to do so.
“As Governor of Texas, I have a responsibility to protect the people of Texas, a responsibility that grows more urgent by the day as the Biden Administration remains on the sidelines. I take my duties and responsibilities as Governor of the State of Texas very seriously. I have the authority and duty, under the United States and Texas Constitutions, to protect Texans and our nation. I also have the authority under long-established emergency response laws to control the movement of people to better contain the spread of a disaster, such as those known to have COVID-19. My duty remains to the people of Texas, and I have no intention of abdicating that.
“Until President Biden and his administration do their job to enforce our nation’s laws and protect Americans, the state of Texas will continue to move forward to protect our communities and uphold the rule of law.”
