Update: Gov. Abbott gave the DOJ his answer on Twitter.
“Texas has the sovereign right to defend our border, under the U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution.” The governor added that President Joe Biden’s refusal to secure the border “encourages migrants to risk their lives crossing illegally through the Rio Grande, instead of safely and legally over a bridge.”
Of all the absurdities coming from the Biden government of ‘rule by bureaucrats’, the threatened lawsuit over barriers in Texas against Governor Greg Abbott has to be the worst. The DOJ is suing Governor Abbott for having floating barriers at the border in the Rio Grande. They claim there are humanitarian concerns. Meanwhile, thanks to drugs from Mexico, it’s commonplace to see corpses in the street in Santa Monica.
When I was in Santa Monica – it was very safe -no more. The Pier sometimes had its issues, but it was a peaceful, beautiful place.
Meanwhile, people die weekly in the Rio Grande and don’t care. Just days ago, a cartel member was seen throwing a one-year-old baby girl into the Rio Grande to drown. There was no outrage from the government or the media. They don’t care. They certainly don’t care about humanitarian concerns.

The Biden administration has an open borders agenda to bring in democratic voters, and that’s all that matters to them.
DOJ THREATENS A LAWSUIT
The DOJ sent a letter to Governor Abbott on Thursday about the buoys installed in the Rio Grande River at Eagle Pass. The bright orange buoys are four feet in diameter and anchored to the bottom of the waterway.
The DOJ writes, “The state of Texas’s actions violate federal law, raise humanitarian concerns, present serious risks to public safety and the environment, and may interfere with the federal government’s ability to cover out its official duties.
Texas has the sovereign authority to defend our border, under the U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution.
We have sent the Biden Administration numerous letters detailing our authority, including the one I hand-delivered to President Biden earlier this year.

Texas is stepping up to address this crisis.
We will continue to deploy every strategy to protect Texans and Americans — and the migrants risking their lives.
We will see you in court, Mr. President.

Most of you probably thought their official duties were to protect the border and to keep it secure. Not what they are doing. They say the buoys violate the Rivers and Harbors Act. Meanwhile, they are breaking federal law.
THE SOVEREIGN STATE OF TEXAS
In a recent tweet, Governor Abbott stated, “Texas has the sovereign authority to defend our border, under the US Constitution and the Texas Constitution. We have sent the Biden administration numerous letters detailing our authority, including the one I hand-delivered to President Biden earlier this year.”
The DOJ officials have issued a 2:00 PM deadline on July 24th for Abbott to confirm he received the letter and demand his commitment to “expeditiously remove the floating barrier and related structures.”
The DOJ said they will file legal action if the terms are not met.
Ironically, they can break all our immigration laws, and nothing happens to them. They are literally destroying the country, and nothing happens to them.
In New York, Mayor Adams has about 60,000 new immigrants, and he can’t afford them. He doesn’t want his city to be a sanctuary city any longer. He has sent flyers to the border telling people not to come to New York since they don’t have jobs or housing. Imagine what it’s like for Texas, which has had millions of them.
In fact, because of illegal immigration, the state is now majority-minority.
Still, nothing dissuades the Bideneestas. No one does a thing about it. No one. The people coming in are often poor, needy, and uneducated – some of them are criminals and terrorists – and they will decide our political future and our culture. Even if they don’t vote, they have strong political influence and power. Americans better wake up.
It might be too late anyway. Democrats hate America.
RETALIATION FOR WHISTLEBLOWERS
At the same time, the totalitarian leadership quickly reassigned a whistleblower to a nothing post. He cooperated with the congressional committee.

Impeach Joe Biden, NOW!
