American government functions best when each level of government (federal, state, county, local) stays in its own lane and its own jurisdiction.

That becomes problematic, however, when the federal government either grabs too much power or cedes its power to control the border without allowing a state government to fill the void.

A current case in point is Operation Lone Star, launched by Texas when it became obvious the Biden administration wasn’t going to control the border.

The state of Texas had to move to fill the void. So it began running its own border control policy, even arresting illegal aliens for trespassing (which they are, of course).

Now a judge says, no, Texas can’t do that, it’s unconstitutional.
