It’s become abundantly clear the Biden administration, and apparently the Supreme Court, care very little about the national security of the United States. President Joe Biden has sat back on his haunches for the last three years as a crisis has unfolded along the southern border, seeing hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants cross over into the U.S. on a weekly basis. That means, at this point, millions of individuals have gotten inside the country, with many of them disappearing into thin air.
One of the reasons this is so dangerous is because radical terrorists from Islamic groups all over the Middle East are mixing in with the large swaths of folks who are coming over the border. No doubt, their intent is to either carry out lone wolf attacks or to build sleeper cells to carry out large scale attacks, all the while targeting mentally vulnerable young men for recruitment.
Add to that the drug cartels sneaking people across the border and the influx of drugs like fentanyl hitting the streets as a result and you have a very real threat to the safety and security of Americans living in the southern region of the country, which, over time, will grow in scope to include more states in the nation’s interior.
And every single time Texas attempts to control the problem themselves, the federal government pokes their nose into the matter and tells them they cannot take the course of action they are taking. So here we know for a fact the federal government is aware of what’s happening at the border, but they are not taking any action to stop it, essentially employing an open border policy. It’s infuriating .
Now the Supreme Court is siding with Biden against Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott by stating that federal officials are allowed to cut through the razor wire the state installed to discourage illegal migrants from crossing into the country.
via The Daily Wire:
After Texas installed around 30 miles of razor wire along the southern border, the U.S. Border Patrol repeatedly cut through the wire to allow illegal immigrants to enter the country. Texas filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, saying the federal government damaged state property and was trespassing, according to NBC News.
In a 5-4 ruling on Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court granted an emergency request from the Biden administration to allow agents to cut through the razor wire after the feds argued that the barrier prevented them from reaching illegal immigrants who had already crossed the border.
“This is not over,” Abbott stated, in his response to the ruling. “Texas’ razor wire is an effective deterrent to the illegal crossings Biden encourages. I will continue to defend Texas’ constitutional authority to secure the border and prevent the Biden Admin from destroying our property.”
Abbott also reposted a statement from Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) spokesman Chris Olivarez, who said state authorities will continue to use “reinforced concertina wire & anti-climb barriers” to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants.
“The State of Texas, under Gov. @GregAbbott_TX’s Operation Lone Star, will maintain its current posture in deterring illegal border crossings by utilizing effective border security measures – reinforced concertina wire & anti-climb barriers along the Rio Grande,” Olivarez went on to say in a post on X. “The logical concern should be why the Federal Government continues to hinder Texas’ ability to protect its border, all while allowing for the exploitation, dangerous, & inhumane methods of permitting illegal immigrants, including children, to illegally cross a dangerous river where many have lost their lives. Texas is the only state using every strategy & resource to protect its sovereignty, combat criminal activity, & discourage illegal immigration. Texas will continue to hold the line.”
There’s little doubt in my mind that conservatives will be angry to find out that GOP-appointed Justices Amy Coney Barrett and John Roberts actually sided with the liberal justices in a 5-4 ruling. Talk about being a traitor to conservative values. It’s important to note the ruling isn’t final. It just allows Border Patrol agents to through the wire while litigation carries on. In fact, the 5th Circuit of Appeals is still weighing the full case and will hear oral arguments in February.
