White House, Texas gov in dispute over housing unaccompanied migrant kids: report
The White House and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott are locked in a standoff after the Lone Star State moved to block federal housing for unaccompanied illegal immigrant children, according to a report.
Abbott, who will accompany former President Donald Trump on a visit to the border on Wednesday, has ordered state child care regulators to pull the licenses for shelters that serve illegal immigrant children beginning Aug. 31.
About 4,500 children would be affected.
Abbott’s move would further complicate the Biden administration’s response to the growing crisis at the border of record-smashing numbers of illegal crossers month after month.
Letters between Abbott and the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees those facilities, show the Texas governor striking a defiant tone, Politico reported, citing copies of the missives. --->READ MORE HERE

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Set to Close Centers Housing Illegal Alien Minors: State Won’t Be ‘Commandeered’ into Service’:
Tensions are mounting between Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and the Biden administration as Abbott plans to shut down centers holding 4,500 illegal alien children and visit the border with former President Donald Trump.
Abbott has been outspoken about what he calls Biden’s “disastrous” border policies and penned a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra slamming the federal government’s reliance on the state.
“The federal government must solve the federal problem caused by the Biden administration’s disastrous open-border policies,” Abbott wrote. “Texas will not be commandeered into federal government service.”
Politico reported that Abbot will revoke the licenses of shelters for illegal alien children beginning on August 31 — “a move that threatens to upend the refugee resettlement effort and has left federal health officials threatening to sue.” --->READ MORE HERE
