Finally, someone is doing something about the invasion of illegals at the southern border.
But the Biden Administration is trying to shut Texas down, and it is using the Supreme Court to do its dirty work.
We now have a smoldering Constitutional crisis as well as a border crisis, and Rep. Clay Higgins is urging Texas to hold the line against Biden.
Supreme Court issues ruling after Texas takes control of border area
Earlier this month, the Texas National Guard made headlines when they restricted access to the southern border in Eagle Pass. The area has been a major focus in recent months as a major crossing point for large groups of illegal aliens.

The goal of the Texas National Guard was to take authority at Eagle Pass to reinforce the border and stop the flow of migrants into the state of Texas. This prompted the federal government to file a lawsuit against Texas at the Supreme Court.
The Biden Administration wants to see their authority over the southern border recognized and the Texas National Guard expelled. SCOTUS has yet to issue a ruling on the border control issue, but they did rule that Border Agents were permitted to remove barbed wiring along the border.
“The feds are staging a civil war…”
Conservatives took to social media slamming the federal government for fighting to keep the border open.
One of the most ominous posts was written by Louisiana Republican Representative Clay Higgins.
Mocking the mainstream media, he posed their eventual question to him and other conservatives.
“Media: Congressman Higgins, the Supreme Court just ruled in favor of the Biden Admin over the State of Texas, saying that the federal government can remove physical barriers at the border put in place by Texas. What are your thoughts?” he wrote.
Then Higgins went on to effectively warn America what this moment means for the direction of our country.
“My thoughts are that the feds are staging a civil war, and Texas should stand their ground,” he finished.
The situation does seem like it could escalate to a dangerous place if the state of Texas chooses to assert their authority to defend their land against invading migrants.
And it looks like that’s exactly where we are headed.
“HOLD THE LINE TEXAS”
Following the Supreme Court ruling that the federal government can access the Eagle Pass area to remove the barbed wiring, Governor Abbott took a stand for the Lone Star state.
“This is not over…I will continue to defend Texas’ constitutional authority to secure the border and prevent the Biden Admin from destroying our property,” he wrote on social media.
This is not over.
Texas' razor wire is an effective deterrent to the illegal crossings Biden encourages.

Abbott said that the barbed wire is an “effective deterrent” and vowed to ensure that it remained in place.
Video footage was later released of Texas National Guardsmen reinforcing the barbed wire fencing under a bridge at Eagle Pass.
Charlie Kirk shared the video with the comment, “The Texas National Guard responds to the Supreme Court’s order to remove the razor wire in Eagle Pass by installing even more.”
