Governor Abbott has the support of his Attorney General to send migrants to Washington D.C..
In a recent appearance on Fox News, Texas AG Ken Paxton said, if the federal government won’t do it, ““why should the governor not be able to protect his state?”
“[Paxton] acknowledged a 2012 Supreme Court case, Arizona v. the United States, prevents states from making their own immigration policies and is a ‘problem’ for Texas’ efforts. Still, he wants Texas to move ahead with busing migrants to Biden’s doorstep and suggested the Supreme Court, now with a solid 6-3 conservative majority, could give the issue a fresh look,” Fox News reports.
“I think that was wrongly decided,” Paxton told Fox & Friends. “So I’d encourage the governor to force people to be sent out of our state and make the federal government sue us [and] take that back to the U.S Supreme Court.”
“If you’re not going to let us deport these people –- if we don’t have the authority to do that, and we’re in the middle of a litigation over that right now to see if we do – then why not send them to the doorstep of Joe Biden and let him take care of the problem since he’s creating it,” Paxton said.
