Supreme Court Gives “OK” To Start Arresting

The Biden regime’s efforts to maintain an open southern border have encountered another setback after the Supreme Court’s decision to allow Texas to enforce a new law empowering local police to arrest migrants.

The conservative-majority court rejected an emergency request from the Biden regime to block the law, arguing that states have no authority to legislate on immigration. Three liberal Supreme Court justices dissented, supporting the Biden regime’s position.

SB4, as the new Texas law is known, enables law enforcement throughout the Lone Star State to arrest migrants who illegally cross into the United States from Mexico. Upon arrest, police can impose criminal penalties, including deportation to Mexico at a judge’s order.

Texas argues that it is the nation’s first line of defense against transnational violence and has been forced to address the deadly consequences of the federal government’s inability or unwillingness to protect the border.

After Texas passed SB4, a federal judge initially blocked it from taking effect in response to a Biden regime lawsuit. The New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals later ruled that SB4 could take effect on March 10 unless the Supreme Court intervened.

Ultimately, the Supreme Court upheld the validity of SB4 in its majority ruling, with Justice Samuel Alito issuing a temporary freeze on March 4 to allow the court time to consider the Biden regime’s request.

Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar contends that the new Texas law is “flatly inconsistent” with Supreme Court precedent dating back a century. She argues that federal law preempts state law in matters of immigration.

Some conservatives believe the Biden regime’s desire for open borders is driven by the potential $7 trillion boost to GDP from low-wage labor. Nearly all of the jobs added under Biden have gone to foreign-born workers.

Eric Ruark, director of research for Numbers USA, asserts that this surge in illegal immigration is not accidental but a result of deliberate policy choices by the Biden administration.

Critics in the comments section argue that while this is a positive development, it’s too late to address the millions of illegal immigrants already in the United States. They suggest that mass deportation would lead to reduced housing prices, medical costs, crime, taxes, and utility costs.

The migrant problem continues to worsen, highlighting the need for more effective border control measures.
