Barbed wire ordered to be removed from Texas border
According to American media such as CNN, The Supreme Court of the United States approved this Monday that Border Patrol agents remove the barbed wire that was placed on the Texas border with Mexicoa measure that was part of the security initiative of the controversial Texas governor, Greg Abbott.
That’s how it is; According to this information, the judges’ decision came after a 5-4 vote and represents a victory for President Joe Biden against Abbott on border policy… Although, the Texas governor has already warned that this decision will be appealed.
Something that also happens after three migrants drowned in the Rio Grande section, since Federal agents could not help them because state officials have blocked access..
Given the Supreme Court’s decision, Greg Abbott released a statement in which he said that “will continue fighting to defend state property and its constitutional authority to secure the border” and added that as the Biden administration has cut the barbed wire on the Texas border, the door has been opened to migrants.
“The absence of barbed wire and other deterrence strategies encourages migrants to make unsafe and illegal crossings between ports of entry”says the statement.
How did this lawsuit over barbed wire start?
It all started last month, when A federal appeals court ordered the Border Patrol to stop removing barbed wire from the Texas border., right in the Rio Grande section, while the judicial proceedings continued. While The Department of Justice asked the Supreme Court in early January to intervene suddenly to eliminate that ruling, which happened this Monday.
In this regard, the attorney general in court documents, Elizabeth Prelogar, indicated that if the barbed wire remains in place, will prevent the work of the Border Patrol and protect against the risk of injury and deathan issue that concerns the federal government, and not that of Texas.
He also maintained that the barriers placed by Texas, including barbed wire, fences and military vehicles, “they demonstrate an escalation” of this state’s efforts to avoid the tasks of the federal government’s Border Patrol, as well as obstructing medical emergency care for migrants.
Meanwhile, the Texas government continues to demand that the barbed wire on its border be removed. is to illegally destroy state property and undermine security to help migrants cross the border.
For you, who is right? In the end, the most affected are the migrants who cross from Mexico to the United States with this wire, Because in addition to preventing its passage, it hinders the actions of the authorities when accidents occur, such as with the three people who drowned in Río Grande..
