    Default Greg Abbott's outrageous Covid order to scapegoat immigrants in Texas

    What a piece of shit Abbott is, hope they vote him out?!!

    (CNN) Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bizarre, vaguely worded executive order on Wednesday that he says is aimed at lowering Covid-19 infections.

    In a statement about the order, he said: "The dramatic rise in unlawful border crossings has also led to a dramatic rise in COVID-19 cases among unlawful migrants who have made their way into our state, and we must do more to protect Texans from this virus and reduce the burden on our communities."

    This is nonsense. His order is an outrageous attempt to scapegoat immigrants, and people who look like them, as being somehow to blame for the resurgent pandemic. It is certain to invite racial profiling and other abuses of the law, and brings Texas into the realm of immigration enforcement, which the Constitution forbids.

    The order says that when migrants are released from the custody of federal immigration officials, it is illegal for anyone except law enforcement to give them a ride home to their families or to a sponsor's home. It directs the state's Department of Public Safety to stop and reroute any vehicle "upon reasonable suspicion" of a violation of this order.

    No chance Abbot gets voted out. We like the job he is doing.

    Kartoon Kenny is afraid of the truth, maybe he can tell us what they are still being allowed in when flights from other countries are banned?

    The current covid-19 case surge in Texas is horrendous and as expected as a result of the horrendous repuke influence on society to which the repuke party should be consider America's number one imminent threat:

    With the delta variant spreading, the number of hospitalized Texans has increased to levels not seen since February

    Health experts estimate 75% to 90% of Texans would need to be vaccinated to reach herd immunity. This is about 22 million people, or nearly 100% of adults in the state. The state is still far from reaching that threshold, even when considering people who have some immunity from a previous case of COVID-19. The CDC recommends people previously infected get vaccinated because scientists aren’t sure how long immunity lasts for them."

    Let's see...

    Those Americans that don't want the vaccine we really can't do anything about. Those foreign nationals illegally entering the US without a vaccine or even having a case of Chinese Disease, we can do something about. It's called "deportation."

    But we have a President who is ignoring his oath of office to uphold the laws of the United States and letting illegals in in a defacto open borders situation...
