Biden Hit With Crippling Loss by Federal Judge

( – President Joe Biden’s open border approach to illegal immigration was dealt a severe blow on Monday. A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order that prevents the White House from either destroying or tampering with a fence installed by Texas to protect against the influx of illegal aliens over the border. The order specifically prevents the Biden administration from removing or altering a concertina wire fence that was installed as a result of the president’s general refusal to back the construction of the border wall.

Chief U.S. District Judge Alia Moses ruled that the state of Texas is likely to prevail in a lawsuit defending the decision to install the border fencing, and that if federal officials tamper with the fence as the lawsuit proceeds, the state was likely to experience significant harm.

It’s a blow not just for President Joe Biden and his opposition to any form of physical border protection but also for Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who specifically sought to tear the fencing down.

In an 11-page decision, Judge Moses said that the Plaintiff “preliminarily established that it would face irreparable harm without a temporary restraining order,” adding that the only exception to the restraining order was for medical emergencies that result in serious bodily harm or death to a person.

The state of Texas is currently in the process of suing the Biden administration over claims that federal officials ordered the “cutting, destroying, or otherwise damaging” of the concertina wire that was erected on the Texas-Mexico border to stem the flow of illegal aliens. The efforts came as part of Operation Lone Star, a plan established by Governor Greg Abbott of Texas to revive Trump-era border wall policies on a statewide level.

Concertina wire was erected on the U.S. side of the banks of the Rio Grande. In its lawsuit, the state of Texas alleges that CBP agents have, at times, deliberately cut down or removed part of the fencing to allow migrants to be brought across the border and processed in the United States.
