. DOJ Asks Judge To Order Texas To Take Down Razor Wire-Covered Buoys In Rio Grande « JO LEE MAGAZINE

HUFFPOST – The Justice Department asked a federal judge on Wednesday to order Texas to remove razor wire-covered barriers in the Rio Grande amid concerns they could harm or kill migrants seeking asylum in the United States. Texas began deploying the floating barrier along miles of the river near Eagle Pass earlier this month, part of a multibillion-dollar effort to deter migrants. The initiative has sparked fierce condemnation from Democrats and human rights groups, who have called the barricades inhumane “death traps.” The Biden administration asked the court to order their removal within 10 days, arguing the barriers had significantly harmed the nation’s relationship with Mexico.
