Biden appeals to justices over Texas-Border Patrol dispute

SCOTUSblog By Amy Howe 1/3/2024

The Biden administration came to the Supreme Court on Tuesday, asking the justices to block an order by a federal appeals court that generally bars federal Border Patrol agents from cutting or moving razor wire installed by Texas along a portion of the U.S.-Mexico border. Representing the federal government, U.S. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar told the justices that the order by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit has “serious on-the-ground consequences” because it prevents Border Patrol agents from reaching and apprehending migrants who have already entered the United States.

Texas installed rolls of razor-wire fencing along some stretches of the Rio Grande River, which forms the U.S. border with Mexico in the southern part of the state, earlier this year. The fencing was a response to an increase in the number of migrants crossing the border into the United States, many of whom are seeking asylum.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott defended the use of the wire fencing, writing on X (then known as Twitter) that “Texas has the sovereign authority to defend our borders” and insisting that the state would “continue to deploy every strategy to protect Texans and Americans — and the migrants risking their lives.”

Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit has “serious on-the-ground consequences” because it prevents Border Patrol agents from reaching and apprehending migrants who have already entered the United States. But mostly it prevents the BP from giving the "illegal aliens" directions on where and how to get their taxpayer paid for free shit before releasing them into America with absolutely no consequences.
