In this excerpt from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance break down the Supreme Court’s ruling permitting Border Patrol to cut the razor wire installed by the National Guard, at the direction of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, along the Rio Grande at the U.S.-Mexico border. The justices are wading into a dispute over whether the federal government has exclusive authority to enforce immigration law or if states, like Texas, may set their own immigration policies.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce discuss:
– A New York jury’s verdict ordering former President Donald Trump to pay writer E. Jean Carroll $83.3 million for defaming her after she accused him of rape; and
– Former Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro’s four-month prison sentence for defying a January 6 House committee subpoena.
