‘This Is Not Over’: Abbott Vows To Defend Texas’ ‘Authority To Secure The Border’ After SCOTUS Sides With Biden | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) vowed to continue to fight for his state's right to secure the southern border after the Supreme Court sided with the Biden administration on Monday, ruling that federal officials may cut through razor wire that Texas installed to repel illegal immigrants.

    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 said, responding 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 wrote. "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."

    Republican-appointed Justices John Roberts and Amy Coney Barrett joined the court's three liberal justices in the 5-4 ruling. The high court's ruling, however, is not final as it simply allows Border Patrol agents to cut through the concertina wire while litigation continues. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals is still weighing the full case and will hear oral arguments on February 7.

    Since President Joe Biden took office three years ago, Customs and Border Protection has encountered around eight million illegal immigrants, and the federal government has released more than 2.3 million illegal immigrants into the country.

  Donald J. Trump
  Joseph R. Biden
  Leftist controlled Congress for the last 4 years.
  Bloated, incompetent bureaucracy weaponized and poorly managed
  The electorate, US, for putting these fools in elected office that utterly fail

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.
