Supreme Court Issues Another Temporary Ruling Against Texas Border Security

After temporarily ruling in favor of the Biden administration’s efforts to facilitate illegal immigration, the U.S. Supreme Court has issued yet another temporary ruling against Texas’ efforts to battle illegal immigration.

Supposedly conservative Associate Justice Samuel Alito issued the temporary stay on Monday that prevents a Texas law from taking effect on March 10 that would have allowed Texas law enforcement to arrested and deport illegal aliens.

U.S. District Judge David Ezra initially issued a stay against the law in February, claiming that the law would give Texas the right to “permanently supersede federal directives” and prompt the “nullification of federal law and authority — a notion that is antithetical to the Constitution and has been unequivocally rejected by federal courts since the Civil War. However, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned that ruling and declared that the law could take effect.

In the new temporary stay from the Supreme Court, Alito gave Texas until March 11 to respond to complaints from the Biden administration about the law.

The Biden administration has fought Texas every step of the way in the state’s efforts to secure the U.S.-Mexico border and battle the historic influx of illegal aliens. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court issued a temporary ruling that allowed the Biden administration to continue dismantling Texas’ razor wire border barrier in order to facilitate illegal border crossings.

Texas responded by doubling down on putting up more border barriers, which prompted the left to falsely accuse the state of violating a Supreme Court order — despite the fact that the ruling only applied to the Biden administration removing border barriers and said nothing about Texas’ ability to construct the barrier.

It is unclear whether the Supreme Court will make either of these temporary rulings permanent after hearing the cases, but Abbott does have the Constitution on his side. In a previous statement about President Joe Biden’s failure to protect Americans from the illegal alien invasion, the Texas governor pointed to Article IV, Section Four of the U.S. Constitution that promises the federal government “shall protect each [State] against invasion” and Article I, Section Ten, Clause Three that acknowledges “the States’ sovereign interest in protecting their borders.”

“James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and the other visionaries who wrote the U.S. Constitution foresaw that States should not be left to the mercy of a lawless president who does nothing to stop external threats like cartels smuggling millions of illegal immigrants across the border,” Abbott explained in the letter.

“The failure of the Biden Administration to fulfill the duties imposed by Article IV, § 4 has triggered Article I, § 10, Clause 3, which reserves to this State the right of self-defense. For these reasons, I have already declared an invasion under Article I, § 10, Clause 3 to invoke Texas’s constitutional authority to defend and protect itself. That authority is the supreme law of the land and supersedes any federal statutes to the contrary. The Texas National Guard, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and other Texas personnel are acting on that authority, as well as state law, to secure the Texas border,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration has clearly refused to enforce border security laws, allowing a record-breaking eight million illegal aliens to enter the U.S. since Biden took office. If the Supreme Court decides that states are not allowed to protect their own borders when the federal government abdicates its duty, it would effectively be legalizing the destruction of America’s sovereignty.
