The U.S. Supreme Court initially allowed Texas to detain individuals entering the country illegally. However, this decision was quickly paused by a federal appeals court, which has provided a two-week period to further scrutinize the emergency requests by the Biden Administration and immigrant rights organizations. This comes after the state of Texas aimed to implement new laws aimed at controlling illegal immigration, citing the need to protect its citizens from various dangers including drug trafficking and violence linked to transnational cartels. This ongoing legal battle highlights the deep divisions and challenges in addressing immigration policy and border security in the United States.

Do you believe that states should have the authority to arrest and detain individuals entering the country illegally?
