Supreme Court Upholds Biden Administration’s Authority to Remove Texas’ Border Defenses

The Supreme Court decided that the Biden administration’s agents could cut through Texas’s razor wire on the U.S.-Mexico border. In a 5-4 vote, the Court granted an emergency request to allow the federal government to take down Texas’ defenses. Texas Governor Gregg Abbott had installed the razor wire near the Rio Grande to address illegal immigration. The Texas-Court feud continues while the barrier remains in place, awaiting litigation. The decision raises questions about why Border Patrol agents are following these orders and has strong implications for the ongoing border crisis. The Biden administration’s plans and actions to tackle illegal immigration in Texas are met with resistance from the state. The top court’s decision has sparked a national debate about border security and sovereignty.
