The Biden administration is suing Texas over a fence hindering border agents’ work.

The fence, built by Texas, aims to deter illegal crossings.

The administration argues that federal law allows agents to access private land near the border. (Trending: Fauci’s Ex-Boss Admits The Truth About COVID)

“Federal law unambiguously grants Border Patrol agents the authority, without a warrant, to access private land within 25 miles of the international border, as well as to ‘interrogate’ and ‘arrest’ anyone ‘who in [their] presence or view is entering or attempting to enter the United States in violation of any law’ and is likely to abscond,” the petition read.

“Federal law further deems those who are present in the United States without having been admitted or paroled ‘applicant[s] for admission’ with certain statutory rights, provides for federal officials to ‘inspect’ such applicants, and authorizes federal agents to ‘arrest and detain’ noncitizens ‘pending a [removal] decision.'”

The case has reached the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, the southern border faces a surge in crossings, with Texas struggling to manage the situation.

The administration’s move to enable agents to “arrest and detain” noncitizens involves removing the deterrent.

This situation is seen as tragically ironic.
