Texas GOP Rep. Chip Roy Tells Supreme Court To ‘Go To Hell’ Over Border Ruling Favoring Biden Admin

Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas is urging Lone Star State officials to defy a recent Supreme Court order that granted federal officials the authority to remove razor wire placed along the border on the orders of Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Roy asserted, “They have a duty under the Constitution… and every other norm of leadership of any sovereign state, to protect your citizens, period, full stop. There is no exception to that.” In an interview with Fox News Digital, he emphasized that even if the Supreme Court disregards this duty, Texas leaders are still obligated to defend their citizens.

Comparing the situation to a break-in, Roy stated, “It’s like, if someone’s breaking into your house, and the court says, ‘Oh, sorry. You can’t defend yourself.’ What do you tell the court? You tell the court to go to hell, you defend yourself and then figure it out later.”

Earlier on X (formerly Twitter), Roy expressed, “This opinion is unconscionable, and Texas should ignore it on behalf of the [Border Patrol] agents who will be put in a worse position by the opinion and the Biden administration’s policies.”

The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision on Monday permits Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents to resume removing the barbed wire set up by Texas officials along the Rio Grande to discourage illegal crossings.

The brief order did not provide any explanation, marking a victory for the Biden administration in the ongoing border crisis dispute with Texas. The administration argued that the wire posed risks to lives and hindered federal officials in performing their duties.
