Supreme Court rules Feds can remove razor wire

The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the Biden administration to remove razor wire barriers that Texas erected along a 29-mile stretch of the Rio Grande meant to block migrants at the Southwest border.

The 5-4 ruling was a temporary victory for the Biden administration, giving the federal government the upper hand in its fight with Texas while the underlying lawsuit continues.

“Texas’ political stunts, like placing razor wire near the border, simply make it harder and more dangerous for frontline personnel to do their jobs,” White House spokesperson Angelo Fernández Hernández said in a statement Monday.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, authorized the installation of the razor wire as part of a broader effort to deter migrants from crossing the Mexico border. That included a 29-mile stretch of the riverbank in Eagle Pass, much of which is private land.
