A 3-year-old child seeking asylum reportedly faced medical distress on one of Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s infamous ‘migrant buses’ — and died.1
Governor Abbott’s actions under his anti-immigrant Operation Lone Star are marked by human rights abuses, civil rights violations, blatant overreaches of power — and, yes, even death. By design, Texas’ policies and practices inflict maximum pain and suffering on parents and children who are in pursuit of safety and security — of the right to survive.
Since 2022, Governor Abbott has trafficked 30,000 human lives across state lines to cities like Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia — in a flagrant attempt to dehumanize families and inflame anti-immigrant sentiment.2
