DOJ Demands Abbott Remove “Unlawful” Border Barriers, This is the Response…

If you haven’t heard, southern border states like Texas have about had it with the Biden administration and the lack of help and support they require to handle the ongoing immigration crisis. So, it should be no shock that Texas Governor Greg Abbott has begun taking matters into his own hands, doing what Biden should – building a protective barrier around his state, starting with our border with Mexico.

Of course, Biden’s White House is none too pleased about this, apparently. And now, he has even gone so far as to threaten legal action against the Lone Star State.

A new marine barrier that Texas is installing on the Rio Grande is of particular concern to the Department of Justice.

Construction of the floating buoy system began on July 7, as Abbott announced via a video posted to Twitter. According to him, it’s all part of his state’s plan to use “every tool and strategy” available to end the border crisis.

But per the Biden DOJ, the barrier is “unlawful” according to federal law.

They claim these actions also “raise humanitarian concerns, present serious risks to public safety and the environment, and may interfere with the federal government’s ability to carry out its official duties.”

Apparently, the barrier also impedes navigation on the river and, therefore, must be immediately removed.

If not, “appropriate legal remedies” will be issued, which may include an injunction requiring the “removal of obstructions or other structures in the Rio Grande River.”

Of course, Abbott isn’t caving.

Instead, he’s standing his ground and doing what is right for his state and people, knowing that what they need more than injunctions and more illegals is a barrier system that protects them.

His message to Biden and his administration: “We’ll see you in court, Mr. President.”
