Texas governor Greg Abbott is vowing to force state lawmakers to vote later this year on a measure that would impose new ballot restrictions, after Democrats walked out of a legislative session late Sunday to prevent its immediate passage.

Abbott, a Republican, said on Twitter, he would add the bill to a special state legislative session that he plans to call to change geographic boundaries for legislative districts.

He said he will expect legislators to have worked out the details of the voting legislation when they arrive for the special session.

Democrats have contended the voting legislation which restricts voting by mail and gives more power to partisan poll watchers would discourage minority voting.

US President Joe Biden, over the weekend, called the Texas legislation “wrong and unAmerican.”

Democrats have vowed, if the bill passes, to immediately challenge it in court.

A manhunt is continuing into Memorial Day for three masked suspects who opened fire early Sunday morning outside a Miami banquet hall.

Two men died and 21 others were wounded in a shooting authorities said had spread terror and grief through their communities.

On Monday, police released a snippet from a surveillance video that showed a white SUV driving into an alley at the strip mall housing the El Mulah Banquet Hall in northwest Miami-Dade County.

Three people got out of the vehicle, one gripping a handgun while the other two carried what police described as “assault-style rifles.”

Police are appealing for the community's help in tracking down the shooters.
