Biden Regime Pushes Texas to Take Down Razor Wire Border Barriers in the Rio Grande

According to a report by Jarryd Jaeger of The Post Millenial, the Biden regime has urged for the removal of razor wire barriers. The Texas government set up these barriers to prevent migrants from illegally crossing the Rio Grande and effectively invading the United States illegally.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has previously justified the use of the razor wire, declaring that it wouldn’t be necessary if the federal government actually implemented stronger border security measures and made a genuine effort to contain illegal immigration.

During a White House press briefing on July 19, 2023, a reporter questioned Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the matter.

 “Texas has been installing these buoys along with razor wire on the Rio Grande near Eagle Pass,” the reporter noted, calling attention to how Mexico recently filed a diplomatic complaint with the aim of taking them down. “They say the state is violating international treaties and that they raised this with the administration three weeks ago. Do you agree with Mexico that Texas is violating these international treaties?”

As a response to the reporter’s question,  Jean-Pierre accused Abbott of having “treated the situation that we’re seeing at the border in an inhumane way.”

“It is atrocious, the actions that he decides to take,” she added. She continued by noting that “instead of dealing with this issue in a way that we can get to a resolution and working together, he turns it into a political stunt.”

When asked whether the Biden regime would force Abbott to take down the barriers, Jean-Pierre stated that the Department of Justice would “certainly” review that kind of action, but did not specify if this would be the right move for the Biden regime to take.

Back in June, Abbott announced the deployment of the barriers. At the time, he said that the barriers would “proactively prevent illegal crossings between ports of entry by making it more difficult to cross the Rio Grande and reach the Texas side of the southern border.”

Construction commenced in July, with the first 1,000 feet being built close to Eagle Pass, a major illegal migration transit route.

The barriers are just one of several measures the Texas government has taken to try and halt the flood of migrants entering the state. Roughly $5.1 billion has been allocated towards border security.

The fact that the Texas state government is taking such actions is testament to how dysfunctional the Biden regime has become on immigration matters. Ultimately, states will have to take the lead on all matters of immigration reform if we want to see any sane migratory policies become the norm in the US. The federal government is clearly not up to the task of solving this issue.
