The Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has temporarily blocked President Biden’s administration from removing razor wire that had been installed on private land along the southern border in Texas.

The state of Texas filed suit to stop the removal of the wire after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents began taking it down. A lower court had ruled that it was the federal government’s right to manage the southern border. However, after that decision was appealed, Circuit Judge Kyle Duncan granted Texas’s request for a block, ruling that private property laws supersede the rights of the federal government.

“The public interest supports clear protections for property rights from government intrusion and control,” Circuit Judge Kyle Duncan wrote.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For district and circuit court judges as they issue decisions on constitutional authority and rights.
  • For discernment for federal officers and agents as they carry out administration policies regarding immigration and the border.
  • For federal, state, and local officials as they address the influx of undocumented immigrants to the country.
