South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem has continued to take action on the ongoing border crisis, calling out the Biden administration for the issue.

Tensions between Texas officials and the Biden administration ramped up last week after a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court that allowed the Department of Homeland Security to remove razor wire along the state border.

While state officials claimed the need for the razor wire was to slow the abundant wave of illegal immigration crossing over, DHS alleged that it had prevented Border Patrol agents from fulfilling their duties. 

Texas officials have since continuously pushed back against the federal government and have declined to tear down the razor wire as well as give up Shelby Park in Eagle Pass, Texas, which they claimed from border agents in early January.

Since the pushback, GOP states have taken to social media to show their support to stand with Texas’s decision. 

Noem first expressed her support for the Lone Star state on Jan. 25, calling Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s press statement on the issue “exactly right,” emphasizing the state’s “authority to defend itself.” 

“The Biden Administration has created a national security crisis and put Americans in danger. Their failure is an unconstitutional dereliction of duty. South Dakota has been proud to help Gov. Abbott’s efforts to secure our border,” Noem posted on X.

The South Dakota governor continued to show support Sunday during an interview with CNN’s “State of The Union,” in which she discussed her thoughts on why she continued to support Texas.

During the interview, CNN host Dana Bash questioned Noem on whether she believed that there could be a “violent” outbreak between state officials and the federal government, to which the South Dakota governor called out Biden, questioning if he would “manipulate” the situation. 

“I went there [the border] to see with my own eyes what was going on and recognizing that, I am, as governor of South Dakota, I’m Commander in Chief of my National Guard, that’s a heavy responsibility that sits on our shoulders. We have the same responsibility for those families and those soldiers that the President should feel for our military and how he engages them,” Noem stated. 

“So we don’t know where this will escalate. We don’t know what the president will do. We don’t know how he’ll try to manipulate our soldiers and if he will even defend our country from this invasion that is happening. So that’s why I went there, the South Dakota governor continued. 

Since the rising tensions, Senate lawmakers have been working to attempt to get a potential bipartisan deal together. However, although the bill has not been finalized or seen, many GOP members have already begun to be wary of alleged potential legal loopholes that it may contain.
