What Happens if You Try to Go to Texas? [VIDEO]
It was American hero Davy Crockett who, after losing his reelection bid to Congress, famously declared, "Y'all can go to hell. I shall go to Texas!" Well, things didn't turn out so well for Davy and his sojourn to the Lone Star State, but with the recent declaration by Governor Greg Abbott that his state is, essentially, closed to Louisianans, some folks with a hidden camera got to wondering, what would happen if folks were told that Texas was really closed?
Meanwhile, on a much more serious note, here are more details about Texas "Abbott Rule" from houstonchronicle.com:
"Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday tightened travel to Texas by ordering some motorists from Louisiana to self-quarantine for two weeks.
The new restrictions, effective noon Monday, came as President Donald Trump extended social distancing guidelines through April 30, preventing all nonessential travel in the country.
Louisiana’s status as a hot spot for the novel coronavirus grew Sunday to more than 3,500 positive cases statewide. Under the new rules, drivers with commercial, medical, emergency response, military or critical infrastructure purposes for entering Texas would be exempted."
