Texas Gets Splashy with Migrant Buoys: DOJ Says, “Water You Thinking?” 🌊💡
TL;DR: Texas goes buoyant with a new move in the Rio Grande river to deter migrants. The Justice Department’s not having it, sending a warning ⚠️. Drama? We’ve got your floaties right here. 🏊♂️
When Texas decided to float the idea (literally!) of placing buoys in the Rio Grande river, they probably thought they were making waves in the right direction. But, like that awkward cannonball you did last summer that nobody wants to talk about, they’re causing quite the splash. 🌊🙈
Why buoys, you ask? 🤔 Texas, it seems, thought that these floating markers might be a deterrent for migrants. But here’s the catch: The Justice Department is basically yelling, “Water you even thinking?” from the diving board, threatening to slap Texas with a lawsuit unless they reel those buoys back in.
So, we’re here, scratching our heads 🤷♂️, wondering why not a net? Or maybe a pool noodle? Why buoys?
But on a serious note, the crux of the matter is: Does a state have the right to deter migrants with methods like this? 🤷♀️ Especially when it might infringe on certain human rights or environmental issues. (We’re not lawyers, but we’ve binged enough courtroom dramas to be… moderately concerned.)
In the vast expanse of American history, there’ve been countless methods used for border control. But using the natural beauty of the Rio Grande river as a floating billboard for political agenda? It’s…innovative, to say the least. And like that one dude who tried to make pool shoes a thing (we remember you, Gary!), Texas is in deep waters with this one. 🏊♂️
Ah, remember that time when Little Timmy floated away on a buoy while trying to retrieve his beach ball? Memories. 😂 But, jokes apart, the implications of such actions are pretty serious. Migration issues are no laughing matter. And using a river to float policies? Hmm, we’re not sure about that. 🧐

So, Turnt Up fam, we leave you with this: In a world that’s more interconnected than ever, do you think using buoys or any physical barriers is the right way to approach migration? And, more importantly… water you thinking about this whole situation? 💦🤔
