As we all know the border situation is an ongoing crisis here in Texas. We have thousands of migrants crossing the border into Texas every day. When migrants enter sanctuary cities or liberal states they all seem to declare a state of emergency and Texas is told to just deal with it by the U.S. government.

Yesterday a court voted to uphold a block that would keep local law enforcement officers from arresting, detaining, and deporting migrants who were believed to be crossing the border illegally. At this time, thousands are coming into the state illegally and no one is allowed to do anything about it. But that all changed today.

Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Texas can now allow local law enforcement to arrest anyone who is suspected of crossing the border illegally.

Senate Bill 4 was passed last year that would make crossing the Texas-Mexico border between entry points a crime. Meaning you must enter the state at a point of entry. If an officer has reason to believe a person is illegally crossing they can arrest them and they will be charged with a Class B misdemeanor and could face up to six months in jail. However, frequent offenders could be charged with a felony and be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison. After serving one's time they would then be returned to a point of entry to re-enter Mexico. Under Senate Bill 4 officers could turn over the migrants to Border Patrol to keep families from being separated.

On Monday, a court ruled to block Senate Bill 4 from becoming law, and in a turn of events today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the law could not be blocked and it could take effect. Now it is legal for Texas Law Enforcement officers to arrest and detain any one who is they feel is crossing the border illegally.
