Texas Defies Biden Administration Order to Dismantle Border Barrier Where 3 Migrants Died

HeadlineJan 18, 2024

Texas has defied a Biden administration cease-and-desist order, refusing to dismantle its border barrier near the city of Eagle Pass on the Rio Grande. Texas troopers took over the 2.5-mile stretch last week, installing fencing, gates and razor wire. On Friday, a mother and her two children drowned in the Rio Grande after Border Patrol agents were denied access to the area by Texas officials acting under orders from Republican Governor Greg Abbott.
