How Texas is still investigating migrant aid groups on the border after a judge’s scathing order


Associated Press

McALLEN, Texas (AP) — Texas is widening investigations into aid organizations along the U.S.-Mexico border over claims that nonprofits are helping migrants illegally enter the country. A judge in El Paso this week accused the state of harassment after Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tried shuttering a shelter in the border city. Since February, Paxton has asked for documents from at least four groups in Texas that help temporarily shelter and feed migrants. The groups have denied accusations of wrongdoing. No charges have been filed against any of the nonprofits or their leaders.
