VICTORY.— Attorney General Ken Paxton (@KenPaxtonTX) January 26, 2021
Texas is the FIRST state in the nation to bring a lawsuit against the Biden Admin.
AND WE WON.
Within 6 days of Biden’s inauguration, Texas has HALTED his illegal deportation freeze.
*This* was a seditious left-wing insurrection. And my team and I stopped it.

"A federal judge on Tuesday barred the U.S. government from enforcing a 100-day deportation moratorium that is a key immigration priority of President Joe Biden," the Associated Press reports. "U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a temporary restraining order sought by Texas, which sued on Friday against a Department of Homeland Security memo that instructed immigration agencies to pause most deportations. Tipton said the Biden administration had failed 'to provide any concrete, reasonable justification for a 100-day pause on deportations.'"
Pres. Biden's order to halt deportations of violent felons and sex offenders is a betrayal of the men and women guarding our borders and a message to the world that America isn't serious about dealing with this crisis. Judge Tipton did the right thing. https://t.co/qHmtPKdt20— Rep. Darrell Issa (@repdarrellissa) January 26, 2021
Meanwhile, President Biden signed an executive order on his first day in the Oval Office to stop construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
