(TargetLiberty.org) – Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to react to the recent decision of the Supreme Court which allows federal border patrol agents to remove the razor wire that he had installed in the southern border.

In his comments on Monday, Abbott argued that this was “not over.” The remarks came after the Justices gave the Biden administration the right to uninstall the fencing, overruling a previous pause from a lower court that blocked federal agents from taking actions until the litigation proceeded.

Abbott however in his post argued that the razor wire was an effective way to block immigrants who were illegally crossing into the U.S. at the encouragement of President Biden. He added that they would continue to defend his state’s constitutional authority to secure the U.S. Border and block the Biden administration from destroying the state’s property.

In October 2023 Texas filed a lawsuit against the federal administration arguing that the federal government had intensified its practice of having U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents destroy or damage the fencing that the state officials had placed on private land in order to block immigrants from passing.

In a post on X, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton similarly argued that the fight was “not over.” He added that the Supreme Court had enabled the Biden administration to continue their illegal efforts to help in the country being invaded. He further pointed out that destroying the border barriers in Texas was not going to help keep American citizens safe.
