‘Biden wants to make the rest of America look more like California’: Texas continues to file lawsuits against Biden admin

Texas lawmakers are fighting back against new ‘overreaching’ policies put into place by the Biden administration.

On President Joe Biden’s first day in office, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton vowed to take legal action against new laws he believes the new administration will make.

“Congrats, President Biden. On Inauguration Day, I wish our country the best,” Paxton said in a statement. “I promise my fellow Texans and Americans that I will fight against the many unconstitutional and illegal actions that the new administration will take, challenge the federal overreach that infringes on Texans’ rights, and serve as a major check against the administration’s lawlessness. Texas First! Law & Order always!”

Biden signed a number of executive orders on his first day in office, including to re-enter the Paris Climate Accords, to mandate mask-wearing on federal property and to reverse former President Donald Trump’s immigration policy.

Following through with his promise, Paxton asked a federal judge to block Biden’s new immigration policy that would pause most deportations for 100 days.

“I have told @DHSgov to immediately rescind its illegal, unconscionable deportation freeze – or TX will sue,” Paxton’s office wrote on Twitter last month.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott agreed with Paxton, saying the order “abandons the obligation to enforce federal immigration laws.”

The federal judge agreed to temporarily block Biden’s order to halt the deportations of certain unauthorized immigrants for 100 days.

Gov. Abbott followed suit, saying last week that he intends to sue the federal government over environmental legislation.

On Monday, the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Center for the American Future released a statement promising to challenge unconstitutional federal government overreach through the courts.

The Texas Public Policy Foundation listed three areas where there may be probable cause to sue: unconstitutional COVID-19 mandates, the Biden administration’s repeal of important Trump health care reforms, and the new administration’s revival of border policies.

“Biden wants to make the rest of America look more like California. Texas — and the Texas Public Policy Foundation — will resist this. Instead, we will use the courts to help ensure that the Lone Star State — not the Golden State — is the model for a United States that is both more free and more prosperous.”
