Americans are growing more concerned with the open border issue as wars continue against the country’s allies. Millions of illegal immigrants have poured into the country through the southern border and Joe Biden has championed this as a success.
Biden has even pushed so far with his orders to keep the border wide open that he has started a legal war with southern states. Texas has had enough with its governor and legislature putting in place policies and plans to stop the wave of illegal immigrants. This included barbed wire fences along the Texas-Mexico border.
Biden allowed the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs Border Patrol to cut those wires and keep the flow of illegal immigrants going. Now a federal judge has hammered Biden and his agencies with a direct order.
From The Daily Wire:
U.S. Western District of Texas Judge Alia Moses issued a temporary restraining order against DHS and the Border Patrol to prohibit authorities from “disassembling, degrading, tampering” with Texas’s barrier at the border with Mexico.
The court said the only exception is in the event someone has a medical emergency and the only way to help them is getting through the wire barrier. Moses ruled the temporary order will remain in effect pending the outcome of a Nov. 7 hearing in Del Rio requested by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
News photos have shown Border Patrol agents cutting the concertina wire fence near Eagle Pass and letting illegal immigrants walk right into Texas. Paxton sued the Biden administration last week to block federal agents from cutting, destroying, damaging, or otherwise interfering with Texas’ efforts to stop illegal border crossings.
“This is illegal. It puts our country and our citizens at risk,” Paxton said in a statement. “Texas has the sovereign right to construct border barriers to prevent the entry of illegal aliens.”
Biden’s border agents didn’t just cut the wire, according to Paxton. He told the court on Friday that the federal government stepped up efforts by dismantling the border razor fence using forklifts and other machinery. Paxton stated that the courts must put a stop to this or “Biden’s free-for-all will make this crushing immigration crisis even worse.”
The court restraining order comes after the Border Patrol reported the highest single-month total ever recorded for illegal alien encounters at the U.S. southern border in September — a total of 269,735.
That monthly tally closed out Fiscal Year 2023 with a total of 2,475,669 illegal alien encounters — the highest level recorded in U.S. history.
Joe Biden has been at the helm of a staggering illegal immigration crisis. Numbers of illegal crossings continue to surge every year since Biden took office. In Fiscal Year 2022, authorities recorded 2,378,944 encounters, while Fiscal Year 2021 had 1,734,686 encounters.
Biden’s policies have produced an almost unimaginable 6,589,299 illegal alien encounters on the southern border in the three fiscal years of his presidency. More states need to step up like Texas to stop Biden’s open border policy.
- Federal judge gives state of Texas a big win in court over southern border.
- A temporary restraining order halts Biden’s fence-cutting federal agents.
- Biden’s policies have allowed more illegal alien encounters than ever before.
