Abbot­t’s state­ment comes days after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Cir­cuit ruled 2–1 to decline the Texas gov­er­nor’s request to reverse a low­er court deci­sion that had ordered the removal of the 1,000-foot-long string of buoys placed at the riv­er in July. The court claimed the buoys could not be deployed due to the water­way being cat­e­go­rized as a nav­i­ga­ble water­way; the gov­er­nor argued that the water­way is “not nav­i­ga­ble by def­i­n­i­tion” and is not used by boats for trans­porta­tion means.
