DOJ investigating Gov Abbott’s border security mission for ‘civil rights violations’

The DOJ has opened an investigation into Governor Abbott’s border security mission that he established last year to deal with Biden’s out of control border.

The DOJ claims they’ve learned of ‘civil rights violations’ and are now investigating alleged ‘discrimination’.

Via Fox News:

The Department of Justice is investigating Texas’ $3 billion border security mission known as Operation Lone Star for potential civil rights violations, according to state records.

The Federal Coordination and Compliance Section of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division sent a letter to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) on May 16, saying that they’ve been made aware of potentially unlawful activity related to the border security mission.

“The Department is seeking this information after receiving information indicating that DPS may be discriminating on the basis of race and/or national origin in its activities related to Operation Lone Star by targeting certain individuals for arrests for misdemeanor trespass violations and traffic stops based on their perceived or actual race or national origin,” Christine Stoneman, the chief of the Federal Coordination and Compliance Section, wrote in the May letter to top DPS officials.

Texas DPS told Fox News Digital on Wednesday that they are cooperating with the request.

Amanda Hernandez, a spokesperson for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ), said that the DOJ also requested information from them in March 2022 “regarding the agency’s efforts to support Operation Lone Star.”

Gov. Greg Abbott launched the operation last year, saying that ramped-up enforcement by the state is necessary amid inaction by the Biden administration.

Thousands of state troopers and National Guard members have been dispatched to the border and granted arrest powers. Abbott has also offered thousands of migrants bus rides to Washington, D.C.

After 53 migrants died in an abandoned tractor trailer in San Antonio on June 27, Gov. Abbott planed to ramp up Operation Lone Star further by implementing more truck inspections along the border.

I guarantee you this whole investigation is all bunk, that some agency has taken the complaints of a few angry illegals to the DOJ and they are using it to investigate and put pressure on Abbott’s border security mission.

They can’t stand the fact that Abbott has some power to levy on the border and is trying to undo some of the damage Biden is doing. They’ll do anything to make sure as many illegals cross the border as possible before the 2024 elections.
