Texas Needs to Create a Confrontation With the Federal Government Over Border Crisis
"More complaining about to joe biden. And we know who he is. He is not the president of this country. He has some sort of aims ambitions to china or central america. We've gone into that many different times instead. We need to be solution-oriented. I do not like the politics of complaining. Now if you live in california. I get it. Texas is not california texas hill country. They'll secure the border. The good folks in fredericksburg texas. They won't put up with this at all. We also have to stop caring with the left and the media says about us to relevant play. Cut fifty two. But we want to show you why this camp got so big in the first place at swelled the fifteen thousand saturday morning hundreds of migrants at a time just streaming in from sudani kunia walking across the river and just illegally entering the united states without any resistance from our federal government whatsoever. They crowded on the shore and huge masses. We watched it for five six hours straight thousands coming in and eventually the only thing that stopped it was the state of texas and they literally formed kind of a wall if you will with their patrol vehicles and they stemmed the flow. They formed a wall and they stemmed the flow. Of course there's zero resistance from federal authorities. Federal authorities are under orders from the president to allow an open border society. And this really does open the question. And i've asked this question for the last couple months. And i think we're finally seeing an issue that is exposing how republicans are under prepared to deal with the actual crisis. That's happening in america. Which is how much power to the states. Actually have the federal government postures. They flex their muscles but we saw under the trump administration that the federal government backed down when sanctuary state and sanctuary city measures were passed in seattle in portland and san francisco. Los angeles what texas needs to do is create a confrontation with the federal government and the federal government will back down. Texas is the perfect place to test this out.

Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland institute ‘stay-at-home’ orders
"Order now we turn to Virginia WTOP's Max Smith Max just tell us first of all what is this order from the governor today do not Brandon it specifically says all individuals in Virginia so remain at their place of residence there are some exceptions but essentially the gist of this is that governor Northam is hoping the people who have not listened so far to the need to stay at home stay apart in slow the spread of this virus will listen now with this tougher titled order although like I said there are still some exceptions right and is there going to be I mean in in Maryland governor Hogan mentioned that people in this will be enforced he will be charged with a misdemeanor did governor Northam say anything along those lines yes so the penalty for violating this order just like the penalty for violating a governor Northam other orders is up to a year in prison because it's a misdemeanor and so in it's a little bit of a lower fine in Virginia and Maryland but it is it is the same idea you could theoretically face an actual criminal charge for violating these orders there are these exceptions to the orders if you need to go out for a central reasons like if you need to get food or if you need to go to the pharmacy or you need medical care or if you need to take care of but another family member who needs medical care but you still want to limit those trips even if you are qualifying under an essential reason and the governor Northam says that's really the point is to try to slow the spread of the virus now governor Hogan decided to a an outbreak and a senior facility and also other clusters in Maryland what what prompted governor Northam to to issue this at this time the primary things were two things one is wanting to be coordinated with the neighboring state so for Virginia that includes North Carolina Maryland and then they've been working with DC mayor Muriel Bowser as well and then they they're in touch with West Virginia but it's not quite to the same level the secondary thing is governor Northam saw all of the people out on the beaches this weekend particularly down in the Hampton Roads area who were not just out there like you're still going to be able to you which is just walk you know maybe running in the sand or fishing by yourself but they were hanging out in large groups and Northam said as I'm a doctor himself an army doctor who's been in these mass casualty incidents he kind of felt it in his heart this was putting those first responders the medical providers the EMS all of those people at a higher risk because it's speeding up the transmission of this virus and risking that this peak is beyond what Virginia can handle they are still preparing and trying to add more beds Mary Washington hospital in Fredericksburg area has set up an extra facility they're talking to the army corps of engineers about extra hospital beds but they would like to not need them or if they need them they would like to have the ones that they need available and so the key is that governor Ortom is now sort of taking this personally it feels like and lastly may access I I suspect no one really knows the answer to this but how long is it expected to last this order well yes no no obviously no one knows exactly how long but governor Northam order specifically says it lasts until June tenth unless otherwise amended or superseded governor Hogan's order is indefinite they didn't put a timeline on it but it lasts as long as the health care emergency is in place all right Max thank you very much WTOP's Max Smith on governor Northam stay at home order issued
