Texas Governor Greg Abbott says the Biden administration doesn’t understand what’s going on at the southern border.
Abbott responded Thursday to a letter from U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland threatening to sue Texas over an executive order issued by the governor Wednesday.
The order limits the transport of illegal immigrant suspects to local, state and federal law enforcement vehicles. Garland called the policy unlawful and dangerous, but Abbott responded by saying there’s a crisis on the border with immigration facilities overcrowded with migrants. Abbott also said coronavirus is spreading along the border because of the White House’s failed policies.
