Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Files Lawsuit Against Biden Regime for Cutting Razor Wire at the Southern Border: ‘This is Illegal’

Biden’s border patrol agents are cutting a razor wire fence on private property on the southern border to allow illegal aliens to enter the U.S., putting Americans at risk.

Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has deployed personnel and material to the border in an effort to staunch the flood of illegal aliens being let in by the Biden administration.

Video obtained by Fox News reporter Bill Melugin shows more than a dozen men, women, children and infants are seen being let in the cut razor wire fence by the agent. A coyote can be seen turning back his fan motorboat after unloading his human cargo and heading unmolested back to Mexico.

Melugin reported the Texas Department of Public Safety said they had permission from the property owner to set up the razor wire fencing on their property:


As The Gateway Pundit reported, federal officials have sounded the alarm on the potential infiltration of members belonging to Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and Hezbollah through the southern border, as highlighted in an internal memo dated Oct. 20.

The San Diego Field Office Intelligence Division of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sent the memo warning about potential encounters with members linked to terrorist organizations in the US Southern border.

“San Diego Field Office Intelligence Unit assesses that individuals inspired by, or reacting to the current Israel-Hamas conflict may attempt travel to or from the area of hostilities in the Middle East via circuitous transit across the Southwest border,” the memo reads.

“Foreign fighters motivated by ideology or mercenary soldiers of fortune may attempt to obfuscate travel to or from the US to or from countries in the Middle East through Mexico,” the memo adds.

In a critical step towards safeguarding the state’s border, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS), DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, among other federal agencies and officials on Tuesday.

The lawsuit arises from a controversial federal practice—systematic destruction of Texas’s concertina wire deployed along the state’s border with Mexico to deter illegal migration.

“Today, I filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration regarding their cutting razor wire at the border. Texas is and will continue to be America’s greatest backstop to the failures of the federal government,” Paxton wrote on X.

Federal operatives have been implicated in not just destroying the concertina wire but actively aiding thousands of undocumented aliens in their illegal crossing of the Rio Grande into Texas. Some agents have gone to the extent of facilitating these crossings by attaching ropes or cables to vehicles, effectively creating makeshift pathways up the riverbank into Texas. The agents have been cutting new openings in the wire fence, sometimes immediately after Texas officers have repaired previous breaches.

“By cutting Texas’s concertina wire, the federal government has not only illegally destroyed property owned by the State of Texas; it has also disrupted the State’s border deterrence efforts, leaving gaps in Texas’s border barriers and damaging Texas’s ability to effectively deter illegal entry into Texas,” according to the press release.

“With this lawsuit, Attorney General Paxton seeks to end this ongoing, unlawful practice which undermines Texas’s border security efforts. Texas is asking the court to enjoin the federal defendants from continuing to destroy and damage private property—without statutory authority and in violation of federal law,” it added.

In a statement, Ken Paxton said, “Texas has the sovereign right to construct border barriers to prevent the entry of illegal aliens. Americans across the country were horrified to watch Biden’s open-border policy in action: agents were physically cutting wires and assisting the aliens’ entry into our state. This is illegal. It puts our country and our citizens at risk. The courts must put a stop to it, or Biden’s free-for-all will make this crushing immigration crisis even worse.”
