Greg Abbott Scores Legal Win Over Texas Border

Gun Rights

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has secured a legal win in his battle to keep floating buoys in the Rio Grande River to discourage migrant crossings after a judge backed his motion to exclude expert witness testimony from Adrian Cortez.

Cortez, who works for the International Boundary and Water Commission, had provided expert testimony in the case but his authority to do so was challenged by Abbott’s legal team.

In a ruling, Magistrate Judge Dustin Howell granted the motion and excluded Cortez “from offering expert testimony in this matter.”
