Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Accuses Biden of Creating 'Constitutional Crisis' After DOJ Lawsuit

Source: Newsweek

BY AILA SLISCO

Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott accused President Joe Biden of starting a "constitutional crisis" after being sued over his order directing state troopers to pull over vehicles suspected of containing undocumented migrants.

The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Texas over Abbott's executive order on Friday. Within hours, Abbott issued a statement insisting that his order was aimed at protecting public health amid the COVID-19 pandemic while vowing that he has "no intention of abdicating" his "responsibility to protect the people of Texas."

"The Biden Administration has created a constitutional crisis between the federal government and the State of Texas," Abbott said. "This stems from the Biden Administration's refusal to enforce immigration laws and allow illegal immigrants with COVID-19 to enter our country."

Abbott alleged that the administration "knowingly imports COVID-19 into Texas from across the border," while maintaining that the president "abdicated his authority" to "protect and uphold our nation's sovereignty."

1. Abbott is the one that created the constitutional crisis with his executive order.

2. Should the GOP regain the House...

Impeach Biden will be on the lips of every member.

On what grounds? With what evidence?

The 2 impeachments of TFG was quite evident of malfiesceience.

6. If it hadn't been for that tree then I doubt he would have his current job.

The financial resources that he received in that structured settlement allowed him the opportunity to get into politics.

3. Given that Texas is Trumperland with rampant covid and guns for everyone

... Abbot would make more sense if he said he was trying to protect the immigrants.

7. It's not a crisis just because they say it is....

Abbott passed blatantly unconstitutional search and seizure law to question and detain the Brown people. We have Border Patrol an dCustoms officials for that. He doesn't get to assign Federal duties to his state troopers. Nopety nope nope.

He creates a shitmess, then blames Biden for pointing out how illegal the shitmess is.

It's Crisis at the Border.
The country is in crisis because we were built on racist principals.
Crisis Pregnancy centers shame young women into surrendering their babies or forcing them to give birth.
Marriage equality is a Crisis.
Single parents are a crisis

Crisis is code word for the Base to be outraged.

It's all they have--outrage over changing society and laws that don't affect them that they have no intention of following anyway.

The GOP IS the Crisis.

8. There's no Constitutional crisis when the Constitution contains a supremacy clause

"Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution is commonly referred to as the Supremacy Clause. It establishes that the federal constitution, and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws, and even state constitutions."

The only crisis is in Abbott's head.
