(AURN News) — The divisive debate over immigration and border security continues to intensify in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing what some opponents call a controversial Texas law to take effect. The High Court issued an order Tuesday permitting the implementation of Texas’ S.B. 4, which has drawn staunch opposition from the White House. The country also finds the White House and Congress still at odds over how to address the ongoing crisis at the southern border.

In response to the court’s decision, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre delivered a pointed statement, expressing strong opposition to the ruling. She warned that it would not only jeopardize safety in Texas communities but also create logistical challenges for law enforcement agencies.

“We fundamentally disagree with the Supreme Court’s order allowing Texas’ harmful and unconstitutional law to go into effect,” Jean-Pierre stated.

“S.B. 4 will not only make communities in Texas less safe, it will also burden law enforcement, and sow chaos and confusion at our southern border.”

Jean-Pierre reiterated the administration’s call for bipartisan action while speaking to the press on Air Force One heading to Reno, Nevada. She urged congressional Republicans to support a border security agreement that she says has garnered cross-party support.

“This border security deal was a bipartisan deal that came out of the Senate — Republicans, Democrats,” Jean-Pierre remarked.

“Now, Republicans blocked it because of politics, because of the former president. And if we want to be where a majority of Americans are — wanting to deal with the immigration system, wanting to deal with the challenges of the border — we got to get this done.”
