Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, called on the Biden administration Tuesday to take over the Texas National Guard, accusing his state’s governor, Greg Abbott, of defying a Supreme Court ruling and using the state’s national guard to “create chaos at the border.”

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that Border Patrol agents are allowed to cut through or remove razor wire installed by Texas at the southern U.S. border, arguing that it was preventing the federal agents from working.
