Irony at the Border

The Department of Justice has announced it is suing Texas Republican Governor Gregg Abbott for using floating barriers in the Rio Grande river to stop migrants who are breaking U.S. law by illegally crossing the Southern border.

For this the word “irony” was created. Defined it means, “the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning.”

Gov. Abbott is doing the job the Biden administration refuses to do and that is to enforce laws against unlawful border crossings that have been enacted by Republican and Democratic administrations.

Gov. Abbot’s response to the lawsuit was a terse, “I’ll see you in court, Mr. President.”

There are 29 established ports of entry along the Texas border. Any migrant with a credible asylum claim can be legally processed at any one of them. In total, there are 110 Border Patrol checkpoints along the border, a border which the United Nations declared last year is the “deadliest land crossing in the world.”

Laughably, the Department of Justice claims in its lawsuit filing that Gov. Abbott has ordered the “unlawful construction of a floating barrier in the Rio Grande River” and says the barrier might impede the federal government’s “official duties.”
