Texas Attorney General Calls Out Unconstitutionality of President Biden’s Plan

As President Biden visits the crisis-stricken border for the first time in his presidency, it’s clear that his new immigration policy is causing controversy and may face legal challenges. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has spoken out against the legality of the policy, stating that the White House may face an uphill battle in implementing the program.

In addition to extending Title 42, which allows officials to rapidly expel migrants, President Biden also announced that he is offering a legal pathway for up to 30,000 migrants a month from Cuba, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Venezuela. However, migrants who cross into the U.S. illegally are exempt from the program.
