Biden Admin. Demands Texas to Stop Blocking the Border


Looks like Biden’s admin is quite upset with Texas and have given them until Wednesday to comply to the cease and desist letter to stop blocking the border.

Here’s a look at what Biden’s admin wants to stop, the National Guard guarding the border:

CBS reports on the story:

The Biden administration on Sunday demanded that Texas officials stop preventing federal Border Patrol agents from entering a section of the U.S. southern border commandeered by state National Guard soldiers last week, calling the actions “clearly unconstitutional,” according to a letter obtained by CBS News.

f the Texas National Guard does not heed the Biden administration’s demand and cease its efforts to block Border Patrol’s access to a public park in the border town of Eagle Pass, the Department of Homeland Security will refer the matter to the Justice Department and explore other options, Jonathan Meyer, the top lawyer at DHS, warned in his letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Meyer said Texas’s abrupt move last week to seize control of Eagle Pass’ Shelby Park, an area where Border Patrol used to inspect and hold migrants, had “impeded” federal operations to apprehend migrants and rescue those who may be in distress. He cited the drownings of three migrants, a woman and two children, near Shelby Park on Friday.

The White House, DHS and Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar have said Texas National Guard soldiers blocked Border Patrol agents from attempting to render aid to the migrants on Friday. On Sunday, the Texas Military Department, which controls the state National Guard, disputed the claims, saying two of the migrants had already drowned when Border Patrol requested access to Shelby Park to respond to the incident. The department has not denied barring Border Patrol from entering the park.

Sadly, but not surprisingly, they’re trying to use this lady and the two children’s untimely deaths as a way to stop the state from protecting the border. It’s really sick. I won’t be surprised if they use them as some sort of propaganda mascots to keep the borders open. There really is no low these people won’t stoop.

The report continues:

Last week, the Justice Department alerted the Supreme Court of Texas’ actions in Eagle Pass as part of a case over a lower court ruling that barred Border Patrol from removing the razor wire the state has placed along some sections of the U.S. southern border. The Justice Department is asking the high court to suspend that ruling, saying it prevents Border Patrol from processing and rescuing migrants already on U.S. soil.

Here’s another glimpse of the National Guard standing, well, guard:
