SCOTUS Sides with Open Borders Biden Admin, Clears the Way for Feds to Remove Razor Wire Barrier in Eagle Pass, Texas

by Brett Rowland


A divided U.S. Supreme Court sided with President Joe Biden’s administration on Monday, clearing the way for federal authorities to remove razor wire installed in Eagle Pass along the U.S.-Mexico border by Texas law enforcement.

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to vacate an appeals court ruling that allowed the wire to stay in place as the case played out. Chief Justice John Roberts led the majority with Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Amy Coney Barrett and Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh were in the minority, according to decision.

None of the justices explained their decision.

The Biden administration had appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in one of its border lawsuits with Texas. Texas filed suit against the Biden administration after Border Patrol agents destroyed concertina wire barriers erected on Texas soil by officials working through Gov. Greg Abbott’s border security mission, Operation Lone Star.

Last month, the Fifth Circuit handed Texas a win, issuing an administrative stay preventing the federal government from cutting, removing or destroying the wire, with few exceptions.

Texas installed the razor wire in an area near Eagle Pass, Texas, a prime hotspot for illegal border crossings.

U.S. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar, representing the federal government, asked the justices to intervene. She said the Fifth Circuit ruling has “serious on-the-ground consequences” because it prevents Border Patrol agents from apprehending people after they crossed the Rio Grande River to illegally enter Texas. She said the Fifth Circuit’s ruling was “manifestly wrong” because it “prohibits Border Patrol agents from cutting or moving Texas’s wire barriers that physically block agents from accessing the international border and reaching migrants who have already entered U.S. territory.”

    All I can say is the deep state has finally got to the Supreme Court. What did they do, threaten Amy C. Barrett’s family? And the real tell is that the court didn’t release a statement with the decision.

    This goes to show the true intent of the current administration. Flood America with third worlders. I believe that is their highest priority. I believe the out come will be violence against REAL Americans on a massive scale. The marxists have been working on their plan since the light-bringer was anointed ruler of Amerika. They were getting close to accomplishing their goal, but now President Trump is standing in their way.
