Breaking: Supreme Court Allowed Federal Government to Remove Texas Border

The latest reports are all over the news, claiming that the Supreme Court has just allowed the Federal Government to remove the Texas border. Check out the latest reports about this below.

Removing Texas border

The Supreme Court has voted 5-4 in favor of allowing U.S. Border Patrol agents to remove razor wire that was set up along the U.S.-Mexico border by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

This decision was made while a legal challenge is still ongoing. In mid-December 2023, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit had issued a ruling which was later vacated by the high court through a brief order.

Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh voted against the application to vacate the lower court injunction, which would have stopped Border Patrol agents from removing the barrier.

On the other hand, Chief Justice John Roberts, along with Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Ketanji Brown Jackson, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor, sided with the Biden administration. However, no explanation was provided for their vote.

The order represents a win for President Joe Biden’s administration, which has struggled to curb illegal immigration into the United States since he took office in 2021, amid an ongoing battle with Mr. Abbott, a Republican, over the border.

The court’s temporary ruling “allows Biden to continue his illegal effort to aid the foreign invasion of America,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, said Monday.

“The destruction of Texas’s border barriers will not help enforce the law or keep American citizens safe,” he added in a post on X, formerly Twitter. “This fight is not over, and I look forward to defending our state’s sovereignty.”

The Biden administration argued the following:
“Like other law-enforcement officers, Border Patrol agents operating under difficult circumstances at the border must make context-dependent, sometimes split-second decisions about how to enforce federal immigration laws while maintaining public safety,” Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar wrote to the Supreme Court.

“But the injunction prohibits agents from passing through or moving physical obstacles erected by the State that prevent access to the very border they are charged with patrolling and the individuals they are charged with apprehending and inspecting.”
