The battle between Texas and the White House over the border is only heating up. The Supreme Court decided Biden could cut down razor wire protecting the border. Texas has responded by continuing to put up more wire.
Democrats have taken the unprecedented step to urge Biden to seize the Texas National Guard.

Two Democrats from Texas have called on President Biden to take control of the Texas National Guard from Gov. Abbott. This would be an unprecedented move, which would only incite greater conflict in the ongoing battle over the border crisis.
It’s unclear yet what Biden will do. If the White House tried to undermine the governor, anything might happen. But Abbott is not alone in this fight. As Democrats push to let the border rage out of control, Republican leaders are rallying behind Texas.

Republican governors from 25 states signed a letter supporting Abbott’s fight against Joe Biden. But some are doing more than signing a letter. One governor is going further to help Texas defend the border.
A Republican governor of an interior state pledged to drive in razor wire on the border herself if Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is stopped by President Biden or federal forces from retaining operational control of a park in Eagle Pass…
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem told Fox News that Abbott is doing the right thing by standing firm after a Supreme Court ruling in which two conservative justices sided with the liberals to vacate a lower court’s order preventing U.S. Border Patrol agents from accessing the park, which has reportedly been a high-traffic illegal migrant arcade. The court’s decision allows Border Patrol agents to cut concertina wire that Texas had installed along the border near Eagle Pass while litigation continues. [Source: Fox News]
Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota has pledged to send razor wire to Texas, should the Biden administration remove all of what Abbott has put up. Razor wire, installed by the Texas National Guard, has reportedly prevented migrants from illegally entering the country.
Abbott continues to receive support from Republican leaders. It appears the Supreme Court ruling has lit a fire under D.C. Republicans to take a strong stance against Biden’s border policy.
Senators and representatives have spoken out. And more action might be coming in the next few days and weeks. What we know for sure is that this battle could be reaching a head very soon.
