AG Jeff Landry: Is Texas ‘No Travel’ Rule Legal? [VIDEO]
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty, giving his thoughts - and legal opinion - on the recent "travel ban" on Louisianans by the state of Texas.
Details on the Texas declaration from wbrz.com:
"Texas began a mandatory self-quarantine at its Louisiana border, Monday, a directive that would supposedly require drivers who are stopped to fill out forms indicating where they would isolate.
But according to reports, traffic is still moving freely across state lines.
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s order, issued on Sunday and effective Monday, was meant to ratcheted up attempts to isolate travelers coming from areas of the country where Coronavirus cases are rising fastest. Abbott said Texas state troopers would increase patrols near the Louisiana border but what remains unclear is exactly how these troopers are meant to conduct their patrols."
