The Texas Tribune reports:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and his counterpart from Missouri filed a lawsuit on Thursday against the Biden administration, claiming it broke the law by halting border wall construction along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The Biden administration’s flat refusal to use funds that have already been set aside by Congress to build the border wall is not only illegal and unconstitutional,” Paxton said, “It’s also wrong, and it leaves states like Texas and Missouri footing the bill.”
Trump’s administration erected about 80 miles of new barrier before he left office, including 21 miles along the Texas-Mexico border. This lawsuit is the second filed by Paxton and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt against the Biden administration.
