Texas Governor Abbott

Latino lawmakers in Texas are speaking out against Gov. Greg Abbott (R), saying he is “inciting violence,” “promoting fear” and advancing “anti-immigrant policies.”

Tensions between House representatives and the governor reached a fever pitch when Abbott tweeted Friday that undocumented immigrant children should not be given a public education, as the Supreme Court decided in the landmark 1982 case Plyler v. Doe.

Abbott’s remarks came in response to another Twitter user who griped that tax dollars are “paying for illegals to be educated.”

“Google Plyler v. Doe,” Abbott wrote, noting that “federal courts rejected our lawsuit that the federal government should pay for that education cost.”
