DOJ to sue over buoy barrier

THE DEPARTMENT of Justice is suing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott over the installation of a floating buoy barrier in the Rio Grande River.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was sued on Monday by the U.S Department of Justice over the installation of a floating barrier of linked buoys intended to deter migrants from crossing over from Mexico.

The barrier is in the Rio Grande River, which marks the border between Mexico and the Lone Star State.

According to the Associated Press, the lawsuit argues that barrier was illegally installed without the permission of the adjacent cities and represented dangers to the environment and people;

Abbott was defiant about the conflict with the Biden Administration, saying “Texas will see you in court, Mr. President.”
