Biden Migrants Proposal Proves US Border Crisis Could End Tomorrow; Federal Appeals Court Blocks Biden Admin from Removing Texas’ Razor Wire at Southern Border

Biden migrants proposal proves US border crisis could end tomorrow:
What on Earth is the congressional GOP thinking?
Reports indicate the White House and Republicans in Congress are at work on a deal that would tighten border security in exchange for okaying aid to Ukraine — and that a major bone of contention is whether to set a trigger point for expedited migrant removals when illegal crossings hit 3,000 or 5,000 per day.
If Washington can tell border agents to stop waving in illegals when the total hits some arbitrary threshold, then it can tell them to do it from the get-go.
In other words, by dickering over just how many illegal migrants can come through in a day before the door slams shut, the Biden administration has at long last said the quiet part out loud: The law doesn’t actually require treating the word “asylum” as a magic “Open sesame.”
Yes, the border can be closed.
It’s open because President Biden opted to appease the left wing of the Democratic Party, which wants open borders however it can get them.
Look: The law says every illegal entrant must be detained until “final determination” of their status; all the evidence indicates the vast majority don’t have legitimate asylum claims. --->READ MORE HERE

Federal appeals court blocks Biden admin from removing Texas’ razor wire at southern border:
Texas sued the Biden administration in October
A federal appeals court handed the state of Texas a win on Tuesday when it temporarily blocked the Biden administration from removing razor wire barriers placed at the border by Texas authorities.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the government is barred during the appeal from "damaging, destroying, or otherwise interfering with Texas’s [concertina wire] fence in the vicinity of Eagle Pass, Texas" unless it is for a medical emergency.
The state sued the Biden administration in October over its cutting or damaging of the more than 29 miles of concertina wire along the border in order to allow illegal immigrants to enter deeper into the U.S.
"By cutting Texas’s concertina wire, the federal government has not only illegally destroyed property owned by the State of Texas; it has also disrupted the State’s border security efforts, leaving gaps in Texas’s border barriers and damaging Texas’s ability to effectively deter illegal entry into its territory," Texas said.
The state had installed the wire near key crossing areas where there have been massive surges of illegal immigration in recent years. The federal government has said that once migrants are on U.S. soil, Border Patrol agents must apprehend them, and has claimed the wire "inhibits Border Patrol’s ability to patrol the border."
A DHS spokesperson told Fox in October that it does not comment on pending litigation, but "generally speaking, Border Patrol agents have a responsibility under federal law to take those who have crossed onto U.S. soil without authorization into custody for processing, as well as to act when there are conditions that put our workforce or migrants at risk." --->READ MORE HERE
