Biden Administration Begging Supreme Court To Intervene In Texas Border Crisis


The Biden administration is panicking as Texas refuses to let federal agents near Eagle Pass, a location where a large number of illegal immigrants come through.

Texas’ move is meant to prevent and slow down the influx of illegal immigrants that have flooded across the southern border.

The move is primarily cheered on by Republicans, whereas Democrats are furious over it.

Now, Biden’s DOJ continues to push for the Supreme Court to intervene in the situation.

The folks at Fox News share more:

The Department of Justice has renewed its push for the Supreme Court to act on an ongoing legal dispute between Texas and the federal government after a dramatic move in which Texas seized control of a park near the border and blocked Border Patrol from entering.

“Texas’s new actions since the government’s filing demonstrate an escalation of the State’s measures to block Border Patrol’s ability to patrol or even to surveil the border and be in a position to respond to emergencies,” the DOJ told the high court in an overnight supplemental filing on Friday.

The Texas National Guard seized Shelby Park in Eagle Pass, Texas and set up razor wire and fences to block off the area. Eagle Pass has been one of the hottest spots of migrant crossings in the three-year border crisis and Shelby Park is a key staging area for processing during the enormous migrant surges the state has seen.

In a statement, the Texas Military Dept. said it has maintained a presence in the park since 2021, including with security points and temporary barriers.

“The current posture is to prepare for future illegal immigrant surges and to restrict access to organizations that perpetuate illegal immigrant crossings in the park and greater Eagle Pass area,” it said.

Senior Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources later confirmed that Border Patrol is being blocked at two areas of operation in Eagle Pass and said that agents pulled resources to avoid a confrontation.

In the overnight filing, the DOJ says Border Patrol learned of the new barriers late on Wednesday and says that the barriers stop Border Patrol from reaching the Rio Grande Reiver in certain areas.

CNN shares more on the story:

“Texas’s new actions since the government’s filing demonstrate an escalation of the State’s measures to block Border Patrol’s ability to patrol or even to surveil the border and be in a position to respond to emergencies,” Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar wrote in court papers.

“Those actions have also changed the situation on the ground from the account in prior filings in this Court, including Texas’s opposition,” she added. “Those developments reinforce the need for this Court to vacate the court of appeals’ injunction, and to do so as soon as possible.”

The filing, coming shortly before 2 a.m. ET Friday, underscores how urgent the federal government views the Supreme Court’s intervention in the matter. Last week, the Justice Department asked the court to step in on an emergency basis to wipe away a lower-court order directing Border Patrol agents to stop removing concertina wire put in place by Texas while the state’s legal challenge to the practice plays out.

Texas should be commended for standing up to Biden and the rest of the federal government.

It has been painfully clear that Democrats do not care about the invasion on our southern border.

This was inevitable.
