López Obrador says floating barriers deployed by Texas on the Río Gande are ‘inhumane’

President Andres Manuel López Obrador condemned Texas’s anti-migrant buoys, calling the border enforcement tactic on the Rio Grande river “inhumane”

Obrador’s statements came after bodies were found in the waters that flow along the US-Mexico border.

“No one should be treated like this. That kind of treatment does not come from a good person; only by being good can we be happy,” Lopez Obrador said at his daily press briefing on Thursday, August 3rd.

“Abbott shouldn’t act like that; it’s inhumane,” he also said, directly attacking Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who has touted the new barrier as a protective measure for his state and previously refused to remove it.

The Río Grande Buoy Barriers: Governor Greg Abbott ordered a thousand feet of floating orange spheres into the middle of the Rio Grande river, that is the actual border between the United States and Mexico, to deter and bottleneck migrants.

Two bodies were found in separate incidents by the United States and Mexican officials in the Rio Grande River, according to Mexico’s foreign ministry on Wednesday, August 2nd.

One body was found stuck in the southern section of the buoys, and another body was found three miles upstream. Both were recovered by a rescue group from Mexico’s National Institute of Migration.

It is unclear what caused their deaths, though Texas officials have said that they suspect that the person found caught in the floating barrier had died upstream.
