The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is threatening to sue Texas after Gov. Greg Abbott (R) halted the licensing of child care facilities holding migrant children. Texas authorities followed Abbott’s orders and instructed 52 state-licensed shelters and foster care programs housing collectively 8,600 migrant children to begin closing operations by Aug 30. Paul Rodriguez, a top HHS lawyer, sent Abbott a letter saying this declaration would violate the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Abbott has until Friday to clarify if the state authorities’ plan applies to shelters overseen by the Office of Refugee Resettlement. CBS News.
