Texas AG: Court Ruling on Biden’s 100-Day Deportation Freeze Shows ‘No One’s Above the Law’

deportationTexas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Wednesday celebrated the stay on President Joe Biden’s freeze of most deportations while encouraging other attorneys general to review Biden’s orders.

Paxton, a Republican, sued Biden over the deportation freeze. A federal judge on Tuesday issued a temporary restraining order, preventing the administration from implementing the mandate.

“It sends a signal that these courts, these judges are open to hearing about the law and what’s actually going on,” Paxton said on “Fox News Primetime.”

“And so I would encourage my fellow attorneys general across the country to look at what’s going on, and whether these are executive orders or just edicts, no one’s above the law, including the president,” he added.

Paxton said he hoped that “a lot of attorneys general across this country will say, ‘No, we cannot allow this to happen in our state.’”

Biden set a new record for the number of executive orders during a president’s first days in office, issuing 28.

Executive orders are typically a tool to go around Congress. Most presidents use the tool sparingly, and only after trying to get bills passed by Congress first.

A coalition of attorneys general sent a letter to the president on Wednesday telling him that any potentially unconstitutional executive actions or federal overreach will not go unchallenged.

“If you sign unconstitutional laws passed by Congress, it will be our responsibility and duty to challenge those laws in court,” the coalition, led by West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, wrote.

The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment. Neither Biden nor administration officials have appeared to comment on the temporary restraining order against stopping most deportations.

A temporary restraining order. We need a permanent restraining order. This fraudulent president is frightening.

Why would ANYONE expect anything other than lawless, unconstitutional behavior and edicts from an administration that lied about policy before the election and then blatantly cheated and stole the election? This a not a legitimate administration and we should never be fooled that it is.

Great point in article “Executive Orders typically a tool to go around Congress”. That says it all & the last three Presidents are abusing this powerful tool. Biden is signing way too many & too fast.

“Dictators rule by executive order.” — Joe Biden during his 2020 campaign. By signing 37 executive actions, including a record-breaking 24 executive orders, in just his first week as president Joe Biden has admitted to being a dictator.

This is the last step in the Marxist communist Revolutionary takeover.
We warned as many citizens as we could that this will happen should they get power.
Not one of us believed that they would steep as low and as crooked as they did. Interesting predictions that are coming true in the most evil way they can.
Liars, thieves, destroyers of all they can, and when we witnessed them take full control over our first amendment rights, we knew what was going to happen.
So, we’re praying for God’s help. We have been praying for God’s help. Our prayers increased and reached the windows of heaven and our God will help us in His time. Trust Him, He alone is faithful and just in all ways. He is the righteous King of kings. Until He responds to this evil in His ways and His time, keep praying for God’s Help and Revival in His Church.
Give God no rest. Let’s pray without ceasing.
Please help us Lord we pray, in Jesus name.

I am SO pleased every time I see someone standing for God and what’s right for our country. He IS the King of Kings and NOTHING happens without his ok. All he asks from us is to be faithful servants and pray, ask Him for his unwavering help that He ALONE can accomplish but like you mentioned, we MUST, and I can’t emphasize MUST pray and stay faithful to our Lord and Savior! He loves us and without Him this country wouldn’t have even come to be, at least NOT “One Nation Under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice FOR ALL”! God is the Judge and I have no doubt in my mind that whoever tries to thwart His plans will pay the price, which unfortunately they can not see nor want to see because of their selfish evil ways! But GOD IS THE CONQUEROR, HE IS THE WINNER, NO MATTER what happens! Thank you for letting me put my voice out there!! God bless America, President Trump and his family, and ALL who stand in the name of JESUS! May we remain faithful even when it seems like He is doing nothing, because the Bible tells us God NEVER sleeps or slumbers, He is always at work behind the scenes if we only persevere and TRUST him to do the supernatural that ONLY HE CAN DO!

This is the most disgusting and radical agenda I have seen in my lifetime. Biden is dangerous because he has no original thought or power on his own. He just responds to the strings that control his every move. We should be very afraid, I know I am. I didn’t vote for him, never even thought of voting for him or any Democrat, socialism is not in my vocabulary.
May God Bless us all.

We are witnessing Obama’s 3rd term, do you remember his people talking about that? Look who is in Biden’s cabinet, many of Obama’s cronies from his last rein. He is putting back his legacy, destroying Trumps. The scary part is Obama’s restructuring of the FBI, weakening our defense. He is also sending billions to our enemies, his Muslim friends, as well as Russia. Everything Obama did during his terms as president we will see again. He will regurgitate his dictatorship. Once again we will be dependent on foreign oil.

It is sickening and heart-breaking to see what the Communist Dems in DC are doing to our country. Good to hear that at least there are some Conservative judges left in states who will abide by our Constitution. This regime under the Communists is vengeful, hateful and they do not care about anyone or anything but power and money. Who would have ever thought we would have a president who has taken money from a Communist nation that we have fought against so hard just a few years ago. All I can say is God please help us stop this madness!!

I think one of the most important orders to be overturned is stepping on responsible gun owners by making them pay a tax and register guns with federal gun registry or give them up to be destroyed or pay consequences of prison and $10,000 fine. I think I recollect another dictator pushing this type of law on it’s citizens. Citizens lost in the end. Thank you AG, Ken Paxton, for fighting for our country!

Biden is rumored to want to tax citizens on how many miles they drive their car. Will non-citizens pay this tax also?

Helen, why would non-citizens pay for the miles they drive. Having spent a number of years on the California Highway Patrol, I can say with some veracity, the majority don’t have driver’s licenses or insurance.

There is only a small, very small amount of Republicans in the Senate that can take the lead. The majority of Republicans in the Senate want only one thing – self preservation, Not all of the Trump haters were vocal.

I’d say Republican Reps and/or Senators should start impeachment proceedings against Biden. But, as I’m sure was the Commucrats intention in making Harris Biden’s running mate, if Biden is impeached, even by the Commucrats, [which may happen as well],God forbid. Harris becomes President!

Under the constitution, Harris can not be the President. She was not born an American citizen, and therefore, that puts pelosi in the catbird seat

Perhaps she may have became an American citizen later in life. We know that Obama also wasn’t an American citizen either. The Constitution doesn’t means anything to them.

Sleepy Joe was awake long enough to get his marching orders from his handlers. I fear for our country and what this nut job has in store. He has already eliminated thousands of jobs of workers on the Keystone pipeline. Thank God we have some Republicans who have the stones to go to court to stop Biden on the immigration issue.

It’s called hypocrisy and projection. The Democrats have always accused Republicans of doing exactly what Democrats themselves do and then projecting their faults onto the opposition party. That is never going to change.

It’s the #1 Rule in the Commucrat Rulebook! Accuse Republicans of every wrong they are doing or have done in the past. A good example is, they always accuse Republicans of racists, associating with the KKK. And [sadly] too many blacks blindly believe it, and follow the Commucrats like cattle, instead of learninghistory. The facts are, the KKK is an organization created by the Commucrats. Even one of Hilary’s idols was the late Senator Robert Byrd who wore the title “Exalted Cyclops” in the KKK!

Trump was accused, biden is literally doing. I’m not sure of this number, but the projected number of lost jobs due to sleepy joe’s mandates. Having never been passed by congress, THEY ARE NOT LAWS. The projected # of lost jobs will be in the neighborhood of 1,000,000. And that is what the figures say for his first quarter in office. S C A R Y and totally unacceptable.

Obama signed EO’s more than any other POTUS, Trump was second to signing them in first four years, and now you have Biden totally ignoring the Legislative Branch powers. He is signed so many, how can he know/read what he is signing??? The last three Presidents are using this as their personal weapon of power.

Please President Biden think very carefully for what you are doing so far appears most detrimental to our country. Talk to the average person and most are very alarmed with your actions thus far. I pray for you that you will seek guidance from above and place all of us first in all you do for a great America.

But they do. They control the White House and both chambers of Congress. The Supreme Court has been effectively cowed by threats of personal attacks, if they dare stick their heads up and utter one word of disagreement to anything. I call that ruling, because there is no effective counter-balance to whatever they want to do. I’m not happy about it and neither should you be, but the reality is the Democrats control ALL LEVERS OF POWER at the federal government level.

Today Chuck Schumer announced that the Democrats are done with attempts at “unity”. A big, whole 8 days before they dropped the pretense of bi-partisanship. That didn’t take long at all. Schumer now plans to have the Senate just ram through whatever they want. Next up is the end of the filibuster, so they don’t even have to talk to Republican members of the Senate.

Be aware, the purpose & intention of the 2nd Amendment was “in order to for a militia” against Government in the event they attempt to take away our freedoms and inalienable rights, just as the Commucrats like Harris and AOC are attempting to do now. I’m very worried about the direction the Commucrats are attempting to take our Country. I can’t help but cry every time I hear the group Home Free sing, “God Bless The USA” with Lee Greenwood who wrote the song. If you’ve never heard it, check it out on YouTube. It breaks my heart what the Commucrats are attempting to do to this Great Country! And it started when they allowed Socialism to take over our Educational System. I pray it’s not to late to reverse what they’ve achieved to do to our youth..
