The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Monday that the Biden administration may cut through or tear down razor wire that the state of Texas has placed along the U.S.-Mexico border as it seeks to stop foreign nationals from illegally crossing into the U.S.

The short order noted that Justice Clarence Thomas, Justice Samuel Alito, Justice Neil Gorsuch, and Justice Brett Kavanaugh all would have denied the Biden administration’s request.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott had roughly 30 miles of razor wire installed along the border near the Rio Grande at Eagle Pass to slow down the flood of illegal immigrants coming into Texas due to Biden’s open border policies.

The state filed a lawsuit after the U.S. Border Patrol repeatedly cut through sections of razor wire to let illegal aliens into the U.S., saying that they damaged state property and were trespassing, according to NBC News.

“The Biden Administration has repeatedly cut wire that Texas installed to stop illegal crossings, opening the floodgates to illegal immigrants,” a spokesperson for Abbott said. “This case is ongoing, and Governor Abbott will continue fighting to defend Texas’ property and its constitutional authority to secure the border.”

The razor wire was installed as part of Operation Lone Star, which Abbott launched in March 2021 due to Biden refusing to enforce U.S. immigration law and Biden’s policies leading to an explosion in illegal immigration on the southern border.

“It’s all along the border, but the main focal point is here in Eagle Pass,” said Sgt. Rene Cordova. “We’re getting high crossings from different parts of the world.”

The operation has detained nearly half a million illegal aliens with nearly 40,000 thousand facing criminal charges, according to CBS News. More than 453 million doses of the lethal drug fentanyl have been seized during the course of the operation.

Following the Supreme Court ruling, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton vowed that “the fight is not over.”

“The Supreme Court’s temporary order allows Biden to continue his illegal effort to aid the foreign invasion of America,” Paxton said. “The destruction of Texas’s border barriers will not help enforce the law or keep American citizens safe. This fight is not over, and I look forward to defending our state’s sovereignty.”
