DoJ sues Texas, governor over migrant travel order

The United States Department of Justice (DoJ) sued Texas and its Governor Greg Abbott (pictured) with the goal of blocking the proposed state order that would restrict the travel of undocumented migrants.

"No State may obstruct the Federal Government in the discharge of its constitutional responsibilities," the department's complaint filed with the US District Court for the Western District of Texas in El Paso read.

Abbott and his administration's proposed order seeks to limit the movement of illegal migrants that allegedly "pose a risk of carrying COVID-19 into Texas communities."
