Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued the Biden administration over the “unlawful and perilous” 100-day pause on deportation of illegal immigrants, claiming it would put Americans in danger.
“I won’t tolerate unlawful acts from Joe Biden’s administration,” Paxton said in a tweet. “Today, I am taking action.”
“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,” Paxton said in his statement.
“DHS itself has previously acknowledged that such a freeze on deportations will cause concrete injuries to Texas. I am confident that these unlawful and perilous actions cannot stand,” he added. “The rule of law and security of our citizens must prevail.”
