Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, on Wednesday accused the federal government of breaching “the compact between the United States and the states” as relates to border security, The Hill reported.

His statement follows a recent Supreme Court ruling that allowed the Border Patrol to cut or remove razor wire installed by Texas along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“The federal government has broken the compact between the United States and the States. The Executive Branch of the United States has a constitutional duty to enforce federal laws protecting States, including immigration laws on the books right now,” Abbott’s statement read.

“President [Joe] Biden has violated his oath to faithfully execute immigration laws enacted by Congress,” the statement read, as well as “instructed his agencies to ignore federal statutes that mandate the detention of illegal immigrants,” reported Mediaite.  (Excerpt from NEWSMAX.)
