The Texas Tribune reports:
Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush has filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, claiming the president is illegally preventing the construction of a wall on the Texas-Mexico border.
Bush announced the lawsuit Wednesday, saying his office is suing Biden and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas “on grounds that (the Biden administration) is illegally preventing the border wall from being constructed.”
“The issue here is simple — no man is above the law. And that includes President Biden,” Bush said.
Read the full article. Bush is running to unseat Texas AG Ken Paxton, which is at least partly what this is about. Last month Gov. Greg Abbott promised a $250 million “down payment” on the border wall he claims Texas will build themselves.
