Razor Wire Along Texas Border to be Removed by Court Ruling

A close ruling of 5-4 by the Supreme Court of the United States has allowed officials to disassemble razor wire placed along the Texas-Mexico border.

Texas State authorities installed the wire along Eagle Pass and the Rio Grande River as a part of “Operation Lone Star” in hopes of better securing the border. The White House stated this presented several issues, such as the ability for federal agents to “perform their job effectively”.

A lawsuit against the Biden Administration in October 2023 was filed by Texas over claims of federal agents removing the wire. A month later, a federal judge ruled that Texas hadn’t produced enough evidence that laws were broken in removing the wire. Governor Greg Abbott promptly appealed this decision.

The Supreme Court has not said much else regarding their decision. As of now, Federal agents can operate while litigation is ongoing.
