The Supreme Court vacated an injunction from the 5th Circuit that only gave the feds permission to cut Texas’s border wire at Shelby Park in Eagle Pass, TX.
That is all. Nothing more, nothing less.
The Texas Military Department has kept the feds out of the park to keep them from cutting the wire.
But President Joe Biden’s lousy administration gave Texas 24 hours to allow border patrol into Shelby Park so the agents could cut the wire. The DHS sent Texas General Attorney Ken Paxton a letter demanding access to the park:
As you are aware, yesterday, the Supreme Court vacated the injunction prohibiting the Department from cutting or moving the concertina wire that Texas had placed along the border except in case of emergency, and restored the Department’s right to cut and move the concertina wire placed by Texas in order to perform their statutory duties. The Department must also have the ability to access the border in the Shelby Park area that is currently obstructed by Texas.
The State has alleged that Shelby Park is open to the public, but we do not believe this statement is accurate. To our knowledge, Texas has only permitted access to Shelby Park by allowing public entry fora memorial, the media, and use of the golf course adjacent to Shelby Park, all while continuing to restrictU.S. Border Patrol’s access to the park. Please clarify the scope of access Texas permits to the public.
Again. The order only said agents could cut the wire. It didn’t tell Texas to give the agents access to the park.
Facts don’t matter. DHS wants everything that has nothing to do with the SCOTUS order:
Access to Eagle Pass International Bridge Port of Entry II, also known as Camino Real International Bridge, from the Loop 480 access road, 24 hours a day. This is to include beneath the port of entry as well. Access through the federal border barrier entrances described above located on Ford Street, Main Street, near the intersection of Rio Grande Street and Ryan Street, and the two entrances on the end of Ryan Street, for Border Patrol to move through and conduct line watch duties and patrol withing the Shelby Park area 24 hours a day. Full access to the boat ramp located at Shelby Park Main Street entrance, consistent with the perpetual easement. Unrestricted access to the entire Shelby Park are during emergency circumstances, including, but not limited to, assistance to other agents and officers as well as medical and rescue operations.

Independent journalist Auden Cabello discovered that most of the Eagle Pass citizens support Abbott.
With Shelby Park secured, the border patrol agents can now patrol the border.
One ranger told Cabella he’s happy to see the agents back where they belong.
Eagle Pass, TX: Regardless of how you see the battle over Shelby Park, local residents are supportive of @GovAbbott.
The few immigrants who are making it to the border are finding it harder to cross and turn themselves in to Border Patrol.

Ali Bradley pointed out a legal port of entry right next to Shelby Park.
The people do not have to cross into Shelby Park.
Gee, I wonder why they don’t want to go through a legal port of entry.
FYI: This is literally a stone’s throw from a legal port of entry…
Did you know the majority of the areas where migrants are illegally crossing are right next to a legal crossing point? https://t.co/gI1Rk1XmDi
