The State of Texas says it’s holding the line in Eagle Pass after the Supreme Court rules the Biden administration can cut razor wire installed by the state. A judge in the whistleblower case against the Texas Attorney General’s Office orders Ken Paxton to be deposed, but he’s appealing the decision. Congressman Colin Allred goes one-on-one with Jack Fink to discuss how he plans to discuss his campaign for U.S. Senate.
Jack covers these stories and more in this episode of Eye on Politics (original air date: Jan. 25).
Stand-off at the U.S.-Mexico border
This week the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that Border Patrol agents can cut razor wire put up by the state to keep migrants from illegally crossing the border.
Gov. Greg Abbott posted on X that Texas won’t back down from its “efforts to secure the border in Biden’s absence.” The state is installing more wire.
