“This was a seditious left-wing insurrection. And my team and I stopped it.”
Ken Paxton (Texas Attorney General)
Just six short days into Biden’s new administration, and there’s a kink in his plans. One of Biden’s first policies was to put a freeze on the deportation of illegal immigrants. As you might imagine, this has presented a problem for border states, like our great state of Texas.
Now, knowing my A/G like I do, I figured he wouldn’t take this lying down. I was right. Ken Paxton came out swinging. He filed a lawsuit against Biden and yesterday a Trump-appointed judge temporarily halted Biden’s policy.
Paxton was well within his rights to file the suit. He believes that Biden’s policy violates federal law. He also believes it violates an agreement between Texas and the Homeland Security Department, which was signed in the closing days of the Trump administration. According to that agreement, federal officials must provide Texas 180 days of notice before they can change any immigration enforcement.
Biden didn’t wait 180 days.
He didn’t even wait 180 hours.
Heck, I’m not sure he waited 180 minutes.
Biden couldn’t wait to stick it to Trump. Never mind the fact that he had to break an agreement between Texas and the Homeland Security Department to do so. And never mind the fact that it put my home state in harm’s path.
Like many others, Paxton is also concerned that the deportation freeze is too risky.
“Our state defends the largest section of the southern border in the nation. Failure to properly enforce the law will directly and immediately endanger our citizens and law enforcement personnel,” he said.
No doubt there will be plenty of arguments ahead, depending on how things go. Still, our Attorney General must be feeling pretty confident. After receiving the news, he tweeted this:
I’m pretty sure he threw in the word “insurrection” just for kicks. But, that’s kind of how we do things down here in the great state of Texas.
