The Supreme Court's decision on Monday to let Biden's Border Patrol to remove border protections led to the sight of Texas National Guard troops getting ready to erect more razor wire at the southern border near Eagle Pass.

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk wrote on X, "The Texas National Guard responds to the Supreme Court's order to remove the razor wire in Eagle Pass by installing even more razor wire structures," after seeing footage of soldiers building razor wire structures under an overpass. As Texas defends its border, Governor Abbott has said that "Texas will not back down". TEXAS, HOLD THE LINE."

Texas Governor Greg Abbott posted a picture of the border on Tuesday along with the statement, "The Texas National Guard is still holding the line in Eagle Pass." In the absence of Biden, Texas will not back down from our efforts to protect the border."

In reference to the border reinforcement scenario, Abbott has declared that the "fight is not over," saying on Monday night that "the Supreme Court's temporary order allows Biden to continue his illegal effort to aid the foreign invasion of America."

"The destruction of Texas’s border barriers will not help enforce the law or keep American citizens safe," Paxton said. "This fight is not over, and I look forward to defending our state’s sovereignty." 

This occurs in the midst of the Biden administration's unprecedented increase in illegal immigration, which saw over 300,000 crossings at the border in December. Those who manage to enter the nation without being discovered by law enforcement are not included in this figure.

CBP data shows that during the 2023 Fiscal Year, which took place from October 2022 to September 2023, there were over 2.4 million interactions along the southern border. There were about 2.3 million interactions in the fiscal year 2022. 

Throughout the 2024 Fiscal Year—for which data are only available for October and November—the Tucson Sector, which encompasses a large portion of Arizona's southern border, has experienced the most confrontations. CBP statistics shows that the Del Rio Sector, which includes Eagle Pass, has had 81,159 interactions by Border Patrol, the second-highest number, compared to Tucson's 119,864 encounters.
