A Texas Judge Just Threw Governor Abbott Under The Bus!

The Texas judge temporarily blocked an executive order prohibiting the transportation of migrants who crossed the border illegally, including those already processed by border agents.

In a ruling on Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Kathleen Cardone granted the Justice Department’s request for a temporary restraining order to prevent Abbott’s order from taking effect.

The restraining order will remain in effect until an official hearing is set for August 13th.

We all know that the border situation is worse than it has ever been before.

Last Wednesday, Abbott issued his order because of the “countless” number of untested illegals “who pose a risk of carrying Covid-19” that were being released by federal agents into the state.

The order instructs law enforcement officers to pull over vehicles that were suspected of transporting illegal aliens after they had been released from custody, escort anyone who shouldn’t be in the US back to a port of entry, and even impound the vehicle.

Unfortunately, Biden Administration’s open-border agenda was threatened by Abbott’s order.

The federal government spends hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars on non-profits and contractors for the daily transport of illegals using vans and busses.

The mandate was immediately met with a threat of legal action by Merrick Garland at the DOJ, who filed a lawsuit against Texas on Friday.

Abbott argues that his executive order is necessary to protect the people of Texas and blames Biden for the crisis, saying that he doesn’t enforce immigration laws that are already in place. Texas AG Ken Paxton agreed and called his order “much needed’ and “perfectly legal.”

Despite this administration’s clear disregard for any of the federal immigration laws that are currently in place, Texas Judge Kathleen Cardone claims in her ruling that if the Governor’s order were enforced it would be an “obstacle” to federal immigration law and would be directly regulating the federal government’s operations.

She also makes it clear that illegal immigrants who shouldn’t be here take priority over American citizens.

“The executive order causes irreparable injury to the United States and to individuals the United States is charged with protecting, jeopardizing the health and safety of non-citizens in federal custody, risking the safety of federal law enforcement personnel and their families, and exacerbating the spread of Covid-19.”  

The last line – exacerbating the spread of Covid-19 – is especially ridiculous, considering the mass releases of untested, unvaccinated invaders happening daily. The illegals who test positive are even being released.

Federalism is under constant assault by radical-leftists who are hell-bent on destroying what this country stands for.

The US justice system is now affirming those actions once again by taking away individual states’ rights to enforce their laws and solidifying the federal government’s power to act with impunity anywhere they want to.
