In latest blunder, charges dropped against migrants arrested in Texas governor’s border crackdown because of faulty paperwork

The migrants were arrested for trespassing, but court documents failed to specify what property they allegedly trespassed upon. It’s the latest misstep in implementation of Greg Abbott’s border initiative, which has seen frequent violations of state law and disregard for due process rights.

A migrant is readied to board a law enforcement van after being apprehended by Department of Public Safety officers at a train depot in Spofford on Aug. 25, 2021.
