If only the Biden administration fought illegal migration half as hard as it’s fighting Texas.
Thus far, the open borders regime is investigating efforts by Texas to prevent illegal border crossings after the state stepped in once the Biden administration had turned CBP into coyotes enabling illegal migration.
It’s also suing Texas for putting up floating barriers on the Rio Grande to prevent illegal invaders from swimming across.
The Justice Department warned officials in Texas on Thursday that the federal government will sue the state unless it removes border barriers it recently set up in the middle of the Rio Grande to repel migrants from entering the U.S.
In a letter to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and the state’s interim attorney general, two Justice Department lawyers said the floating barriers authorized by Abbott earlier this month violate federal law, threaten to impede the work of federal law enforcement and create “serious risks” to public safety and the environment.
“Texas’s unauthorized construction of the floating barrier is a prima facie violation of the Rivers and Harbors Act. This floating barrier poses a risk to navigation, as well as public safety, in the Rio Grande River, and it presents humanitarian concerns,” wrote Todd Kim, an assistant attorney general, and Jaime Esparza, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas. CNN first reported the letter.
The only navigation it poses a risk to is the navigation of illegal invaders. That’s what the Biden regime is concerned with.
A Biden administration official told CBS News the floating barriers have interfered with Border Patrol efforts to patrol the river and process migrants who reach U.S. soil.
Interfering with illegal invaders now undermines Biden’s “border enforcement plan.
“Governor Abbott’s dangerous and unlawful actions are undermining our effective border enforcement plan and making it hard for CBP to do their jobs of securing the border,” White House spokesperson Abdullah Hasan said in a statement.
Abdullah Hasan is lecturing Texas on immigration enforcement.
The Biden administration had previously sued Arizona for using shipping containers to stop illegal invasions.
The Biden administration sued Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) on Wednesday over his construction of a barrier made of double-stacked shipping containers along parts of the U.S.-Mexico border.
The new lawsuit asks the court to order Arizona to stop building the barrier and remove the containers in the San Rafael Valley, citing operational and environmental concerns. Arizona “is trespassing on federal lands,” the complaint states.
“In installing shipping containers on National Forest System lands, Arizona has widened roads and cleared lands for staging areas … cut down or removed scores of trees, clogged drainages, and degraded the habitat of species listed under the Endangered Species Act.”
The Biden administration did not care about the so-called environmental damage. If it had, the mass migration of invaders would be doing far more damage.
Similarly, the illegitimate regime does not care about the navigability of the Rio Grande. The mass crossing of illegal alien invaders poses far more of a threat to navigation than floating barriers.
The Biden administration is ruthlessly fighting any efforts to stop the illegal invasion because it wants the invasion to go on.
