A Court Has Ruled That The U.S.-Mexico Border Barrier In Texas Can Continue In Its Floating State

In the most recent episode in the legal disputes between the Biden administration and Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott on control over immigration at the border, a federal appeals court on Wednesday overturned an order compelling Texas to relocate a floating barrier on the Rio Grande that sparked protests from Mexico.

What Happened?

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which was divided at the time, had ruled in December with a federal district judge in Texas who had ordered the buoys to be moved. The majority of the court’s 17 sitting judges decided to rehear the case, and on Wednesday, the court overturned the panel’s 2-1 decision.

The length of three soccer fields is approximately represented by the network of connected, concrete-anchored buoys. The state placed it between Eagle Pass, Texas, and Piedras Negras, Coahuila, along the international border with Mexico.

One of the main issues in the court battles between Democratic President Joe Biden and Republican Governor Abbott over border control is the barrier. Along with battling for access to a local park at the border that the state closed off, the Biden administration is also fighting for the freedom to tear down the razor-wire fencing at the border.
