As part of the Republican Party’s campaign to protect Americans through a secure border with Mexico, they are pushing for a ban that would prevent the feds from removing razor wire the state of Texas has installed to protect its citizens.
A report from Fox News explains the plan is from rep. Mike Collins, R-Ga.
His legislation would ban federal authorities from removing razor wire or other barriers from the U.S.-Mexico border.
That follows a narrow ruling from the Supreme Court that said federal agents could, in fact, endanger Texans by taking down the security barrier.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been in a pitched battle with Joe Biden and has dispatched the state National Guard to protect state citizens from the invasion that Biden has allowed to come across the border.
”President Biden is aiding and abetting illegal aliens who are swarming our border and raiding our country’s resources,” Collins explained. “Why else would he try to stop the state of Texas from turning them back to Mexico?”
The proposed Restricting Administration Zealots from Obliging Raiders, or "RAZOR," Act specifically prevents federal authorities like Customs and Border Protection from removing barriers erected by any state.
Biden has demanded that federal agents cut the barriers state officials have put in place to protect the state’s citizens.
Following the Supreme Court decision, Abbott also pointed out that Biden had failed to uphold the nation's compact with Texas “by allowing an invasion of millions of illegal immigrants under the Biden administration.
Abbott charged, “The Executive Branch of the United States has a constitutional duty to enforce federal laws protecting states, including immigration laws on the books right now. President Biden has refused to enforce those laws and has even violated them.”
