Abbott aims to restrict immigrant travel through Texas, citing rising Covid-19 infections

Republican Governor. Greg Abbott, Republican Governor, issued Wednesday an executive order to limit Texas border entry. He stated that the action would reduce Covid-19 infection rates and his party continues to critique the president's handling of the border. This move comes just a month after Harris pledged to build a Texas border wall. It is a reference to Trump's plan to reduce migration. The Republican Party has been criticizing the Biden administration's handling of increased border crossings. They have urged Vice President Kamala Harris visit the U.S. Mexico border and criticized the June trip she made. Abbott's order was issued to limit ground transport of migrants who may carry COVID-19 into Texas communities.
