Texas demands investigation of NGOs and their role in migrant crossings

Texas Governor Greg Abbott requested an investigation into the alleged role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in helping undocumented immigrants cross the state’s southern border, without giving specific references.

In a letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the Republican governor demanded an investigation “The Role of NGOs in Planning and Facilitating the Illegal Transport of Illegal Immigrants Across Our Borders”,

Abbott justified his request in “Recent Reports” that ensure “NGOs May Have Helped Illegal Border Crossings Near El Paso”.

In a 24-hour period earlier this week, more than 2,600 migrants crossed the border into El Paso to turn themselves in to Border Patrol officers and request political asylum.

The mass crossing once again focused attention on the situation at the border and record numbers of migrants coming into the US.

“NGOs may become involved in other illegal border crossings through activities on both sides of the border, including areas other than El Pasowarned the Republicans.

He said that he is ready to work out any legislative solution for this. “Resolving the ongoing border crisis and the role NGOs can play in encouraging it”.

The request comes amid pressure from President Joe Biden’s government not to allow the end of Title 42 on December 21, following a court ruling that called for the rule to be struck down.
