DOJ Sues Texas Over Abbott’s Order to Restrict Illegal Aliens Amid Pandemic

On Friday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) sued the state of Texas and Governor Greg Abbott over an executive order he issued. The major aim of the order is to limit the ground transportation of illegal aliens.

Gov. Abbott, a Republican, posited that the executive order issued Wednesday is to “reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure” in communities of Texas, amid the increment in CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus infections in the state, including among illegal aliens.


Attorney General Merrick Garland of DOJ asked Abbott to displace the executive order and threatened to file a lawsuit on Thursday.

The DOJ on Friday,  also filed its complaint with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in El Paso. “No State may obstruct the Federal Government in the discharge of its constitutional responsibilities,” the DOJ stated in its complaint.

“The executive order violates the Supremacy Clause and causes injury to the United States and to individuals whom the United States is charged to protect, jeopardizing the health and safety of noncitizens in federal custody, risking the safety of federal law enforcement personnel and their families, and exacerbating the spread of COVID-19 in our communities,” the complaint filed read.

“The executive order obstructs the Federal Government’s arrangements with nongovernmental partners and directly interferes with the administration of federal immigration law,” it adds. “This Court should declare the executive order to be invalid and enjoin its enforcement.”

Abbott’s order empowers no person other than a federal, state, or local law-enforcement official to give ground transportation to illegal immigrants who have been detained by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents. It also gives the state’s Department of Public Safety the power to stop any vehicle suspected of carrying illegal aliens and send them back.


As a norm now,  the Border Patrol agents apprehends not less than 20,000 Illegal Aliens in a Week.

Gov. Abbott further alleges that the Biden administration “intentionally imports immigrants that are positive with COVID-19 into Texas from across the border—willfully exposing Texans and Americans alike.”
