According to a new report from Fox News, 20 Texas lawmakers are calling for state Attorney General Ken Paxton to bring a lawsuit against the Biden administration for the border “crisis” that is unfolding.
Among the 20 are Reps. Dan Crenshaw, Louis Gohmert, Lance Gooden, and Chip Roy.
Per Fox News “the 20 Texas lawmakers wrote Paxton on Monday, in a letter obtained first by Fox News, urging him to end the “crisis” at the southern border by suing to ensure that people caught crossing the border illegally during the coronavirus pandemic are turned away. Those public health protections, known as Title 42, were put in place under the Trump Administration and the lawmakers accuse President Biden of failing to enforce them.”
In the letter to Paxton, the lawmakers write “we write to urge you to protect the American people from a crisis at our southern border, which was manufactured by the Biden Administration and has led to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants entering our nation.”
“These immigrants have not been tested for COVID-19 and pose an incredible threat to the health and safety of the American people,” they add.
