Jailed migrants declare Texas discriminates towards males, and win – Houston Chronicle
A state district decide has dismissed the legal circumstances towards six migrants arrested in Zapata County beneath Gov. Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star initiative, siding with protection attorneys who argued the state is partaking in “intercourse discrimination” by bringing costs solely towards males who cross the border, not ladies or kids.
The ruling comes lower than a month after Abbott’s so-called catch-and-jail program — which requires state troopers and Nationwide Guard members to arrest migrants on state costs close to the border — expanded to Zapata County, the southernmost county to take part. Most circumstances contain misdemeanors for alleged trespassing on private property.
