As the migrant crisis continues at the US-Mexico border, tensions persist between Texas and federal officials. Razor wire remains along a disputed section of the border, despite a recent US Supreme Court ruling allowing Border Patrol to remove the Texas-installed barrier. The Supreme Court decision was a victory for President Joe Biden in the ongoing legal battle with Texas. The Department of Homeland Security has demanded Texas grant “full access” to the border by January 26, emphasizing the need for collaboration in addressing the crisis.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott remains committed to state-erected barriers, citing their effectiveness in deterring illegal crossings. The situation highlights ongoing disputes over border security measures and collaboration between state and federal authorities.
