SEE YOU IN COURT: Texas AG Sues Biden Admin for Lifting Title 42

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.25.22

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the Biden Administration for lifting Title 42, which Paxton describes as “the only rules holding back a devastating flood of illegal immigration.” The policy, implemented by President Trump in March 2020, is set to be lifted next month.

“The Defendants now seek to eliminate their Title 42 border-control measures, which are the only rules holding back a devastating flood of illegal immigration,” the complaint states. “But they failed to follow the Administrative Procedure Act in attempting this destructive rescission of Title 42. Without justification or concern for Texans, the Defendants unlawfully disregarded the APA’s notice-and-comment requirements, refused to consider numerous factors of crucial importance to their rulemaking, and laid bare the incoherence of their decision-making.”

Paxton spoke to the Daily Wire about the dangers of lifting Title 42 and the Biden Administration refusing to strongly enforce the Remain in Mexico policy.

“Those two programs have been the most effective at stopping people from coming into the country,” said Paxton. “This is huge for my state. We’re already overwhelmed given the fact that the Biden administration is ignoring federal law and every other aspect of immigration. This is the only thing we have left.”

“You know, they’re already pouring through,” he also said. “This basically ends any kind of idea that there’s any border at all.”

Paxton shared the news on Twitter:

“Biden’s repeal of Title 42 is going to be a complete disaster for Texas & the whole nation. It’s one of the Dems’ most destructive decisions so far—and that’s really saying something. I’ll use all my power to ensure the floodgates of illegal aliens doesn’t explode open—again.”

Estimates from U.S. Custom and Border Protection say as many as 18,000 migrant encounters could be logged every day once Title 42 is lifted.
