Texas Gov. Bans Ground Transportation of Illegals, Citing COVID Risk

'Until the Biden Administration stops the thousands of people with COVID from pouring into our country... we are going to continue to have waves of outbreak...'

The Biden administration’s outrageous effort to bus incoming illegal immigrants to various parts of the country may run into a dead end as Democrats also attempt to stir up a new pandemic panic amid flagging vaccination rates.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, issued an executive order in the wake of newly revised guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that appeared to target red states for new coronavirus restrictions.

Abbott’s order restricted the ground transportation of potentially infected migrants and authorized the state’s Department of Public Safety to act upon reasonable suspicion, which could include sending the vehicle back to its port of origin or impounding it.

The governor’s order, GA-37, draws its basis in part from Title 42, a policy implemented by the Trump administration that restricted the entry of migrants into the US during the coronavirus pandemic.

Although President Joe Biden has declined to rescind the policy fully, he largely refused to enforce it at the US–Mexico border. Earlier in July, the CDC gave its blessing to disregard the policy entirely.

“[D]espite the emergence of the highly contagious delta variant of COVID- 19, and the fact that vaccination rates are lower in the countries that newly admitted migrants come from and pass through, President Biden has thwarted the Title 42 order’s effect by admitting into the United States and the State of Texas, migrants who are testing positive for COVID-19,” Abbott noted in the executive order.

Other Texas lawmakers also slammed the duplicitous Democrat administration for imposing what appeared to be punitive measure on red states with low vaccination rates on one hand while also importing to those same regions a steady stream of unvaccinated foreigners.

“Until the Biden Administration stops the thousands of people with COVID from pouring into our country illegally, then shipping them all over the country, we are going to continue to have waves of outbreak of COVID,” US Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told Breitbart.

Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis also slammed the partisan CDC for destroying all credibility with its inconsistent and politically motivated decrees, forcing mandatory masks for schoolchildren and Border Patrol officials alike, while imposing no such standard on asylum-seekers.

“I mean, if you’ve got a kid in kindergarten—they just said today they want the kid muzzled with a mask, even though COVID’s not any risk to the kid,” DeSantis said Tuesday on the Mark Levin Show, according to Breitbart.

“… But yet, if you want to just come straight across that border and have thousands of people pouring in, they don’t give a damn about COVID at that point,” he continued. “They’re letting them right in.”
