The Left thinks they can control everyone and everything. However, patriots across America are proving them wrong.
And now, a standoff between Texas and the Federal government has Biden terrified.
As the sun sets on Wednesday, Texas National Guard soldiers remain vigilant at temporary gates blocking the entrance to Shelby Park, a battleground in the escalating war between Governor Greg Abbott and the Biden administration over border security.
Despite a federal deadline demanding their removal, Texas stands defiant, unwilling to surrender precious border territory in the face of escalating illegal immigration and a seemingly absent federal government.
This land, however, is more than just a park.
It’s a microcosm of the larger fight unfolding along the Rio Grande.
Abbott seized Shelby Park under a state statute for law enforcement and disaster relief, desperate to stem the tidal wave of illegal crossings that have overwhelmed Texas communities.
The Biden administration, in response, issued a cease-and-desist letter, demanding unimpeded access for Border Patrol agents and accusing Texas of impeding lifesaving rescue efforts.
At the heart of the dispute lies the controversial claim that the temporary gates erected by Texas obstruct federal land.
This land was acquired by the feds after a bitter legal battle with Eagle Pass over the construction of a border fence mandated by the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
Ironically, this bipartisan bill, once championed by the likes of Joe Biden and Barack Obama, is now used by the very same administration to argue against protecting the border.
But the real tragedy lies not in bureaucratic turf wars, but in the human cost of unchecked illegal immigration.
The DHS letter conveniently neglects to mention the tragic drowning of three migrant family members who perished in the Rio Grande just days after the park closure.
While not explicitly blaming Texas, the implication is clear: by impeding Border Patrol access, the state hindered rescue efforts.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, however, paints a different picture.
He counters that the state allows “prompt entry” for Border Patrol personnel responding to medical emergencies, emphasizing their commitment to saving lives.
Paxton further accuses President Biden of a “sustained dereliction of duty,” citing his administration’s lax enforcement of immigration laws as a violation of the Constitution’s Article IV, Section 4, which mandates the federal government protect states from “Invasion.”
Interestingly, Eagle Pass, once at odds with the federal government over the border fence, now finds itself aligned with the Biden administration against Texas.
This alliance of convenience highlights the shifting political landscape of border security, where pragmatic concerns often trump ideological divides.
However, the tension on the ground appears far less pronounced.
Migrant crossings in the area have plummeted compared to December’s record-breaking surge, with some attributing this decline to the park closure.
A CBP source, speaking anonymously, reveals the frustration of law enforcement caught in the middle:
“The battle is not between us, it’s between Austin and Washington, D.C…. Until that changes, we’re stuck in the middle.”
Shelby Park, then, is not just a park; it’s a symbol of a broken border system, a political football kicked between ideologically opposed parties while communities bear the brunt of the crisis.
With no clear end in sight, the standoff at Shelby Park serves as a stark reminder of the human cost of inaction and the urgent need for a comprehensive solution to secure the border and protect both Texas and the nation.
