Missouri Joins Texas In Court Action Regarding Border Wall

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced that he has joined the Texas Attorney General’s office in filing a motion for a preliminary injunction in their lawsuit against the Biden Administration for refusing to continue construction on the Southwest border wall. Missouri and Texas filed suit in late October to require the Biden Administration to continue construction on the border wall using funds already appropriated by Congress for that construction.

A news release through the Attorney General’s Office says the preliminary injunction would require the Biden Administration to spend funds and continue construction of the Southwest border wall. The injunction says the administration has refused to spend funds appropriated by Congress mandating the construction of the wall. It also says, the Department of Homeland Security has ended contracts to perform work on construction projects to build the wall.

The motion argues that the Department of Homeland Security has twice said that physical barriers or walls work in deterring illegal immigration: “DHS noted that border wall construction in one sector led to a 90 percent decrease in border apprehensions.”
