Texas Defiant after SCOTUS Allows Biden the Invasion of Southern Border
The conservative government of Texas has entered a legal war of resistance against the Biden administration’s agenda of flooding the country with illegal aliens. With the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in favor of the Biden administration, statements from highest Texas officials suggest an impending stand-off.
On Monday (January 22), the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) granted the Biden administration the permission to let illegal aliens into the country by ordering the federal border patrol to cut the razor-wire placed by Texas officials along part of the Texas border to stop the flow of illegal aliens into American via Texas. The Biden administration sued Texas for the move and the SCOTUS agreed with it.
Conservatives in general and Texan authorities in particular reacted with frustration and defiance to the SCOTUS ruling. Republican Congressman from Louisiana Clay Higgins asked the state of Texas on Twitter/X to stand its ground.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, known for his staunch conservative views and actions, immediately reacted to the SCOTUS ruling by a defiant stance: “This fight is not over, and I look forward to defending our state’s sovereignty.”
On January 24, Governor Abbott of Texas issued a statement calling out the Biden administration for flooding the country with illegals by refusing to enforce the immigration laws. Abbott said, “The federal government has broken the compact between the United States and the States,” and concluded with emphasis:
“I have already declared an invasion under Article I, § 10, Clause 3 to invoke Texas’s constitutional authority to defend and protect itself. That authority is the supreme law of the land and supersedes any federal statutes to the contrary.”
Left disappointed and angry by the SCOTUS ruling, conservatives also called out Justice John Roberts and Amy Coney Barrett for siding with the Biden administration.
According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), as reported by Breitbart, over 6 million illegal aliens have been allowed into the United States in the three years since Biden took the White House. The CBO report wrote:
More of those people are also being released into the United States than previously, generally through the use of parole authority or with a notice to appear before an immigration judge.
Video clips of the southern border’s invasion made rounds on Twitter with many conservatives asking whether the federal government is launching a Civil War in America by bringing illegal aliens in against conservative Americans.
Conservative commentator and former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson called on the people of Texas to stop the border invasion.
