The federal Justice Department filed a lawsuit Friday to block Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s latest attempt to fill gaps in border security with a policy that allows state troopers to stop and turn back vehicles carrying illegal immigrants away from the boundary region.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said the policy tramples on the federal government’s right to catch and release illegal immigrants, and he asserted it is unenforceable against federal agencies and contractors anyway.

The Justice Department is seeking a temporary restraining order to gain an immediate halt of the policy, which Mr. Abbott said is designed to stop the spread of COVID-19 by illegal immigrants as they disperse into the U.S.

The Republican governor lashed out at the lawsuit on Friday, saying the Biden administration has “created a constitutional crisis.”

He said the Biden administration has failed in its duty to deter illegal immigration, and “knowingly imports” the coronavirus into Texas, so the state felt it had to step in with its own actions.
