Federal Judge in Texas Blocks Abbott’s New Anti-Migrant Executive Order

HeadlineAug 04, 2021

In Texas, a federal judge has temporarily blocked Republican Governor Greg Abbott from carrying out an executive order that restricted asylum seekers to traveling only with law enforcement officials and directed state troopers to stop vehicles suspected of transporting migrants. Immigrant justice organizations and others have often helped transport asylum seekers who are released from custody to their final destination. Abbott’s executive order is blocked until next week, when another hearing is scheduled.
