In a split decision on Monday, the Supreme Court sanctioned Border Patrol agents to dismantle razor wire installed by Texas along the U.S.-Mexico border, as an ongoing lawsuit unfolds.

By a narrow 5-4 vote, the justices responded to an emergency appeal from the Biden administration, embroiled in an intensifying border standoff with Texas, contesting a state-favored appellate ruling.

The contentious concertina wire stands as a symbol in Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s wider clash with the administration over immigration enforcement.
