Texas AG Sues Biden Over Pause In Deportations

The Austin Statesman reports:

Following through on his promise to sue the Biden administration early and often, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday asked a federal judge to block a new policy that pauses most deportations for the next 100 days.

The policy, which went into effect Friday, was announced by acting Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske as part of a comprehensive review of immigration enforcement, particularly amid the challenges posed by COVID-19.

Biden was in office for only a few hours when Paxton pledged Wednesday to use the court system to challenge the policies of a Democratic president who has vowed to overturn a raft of Trump-era priorities.
