LOS ANGELES – Texas Attorney General, Republican Ken Paxton, announced on Tuesday that it will file new legal actions against the government of President Joe Biden, to change its immigration policy and stop the flow of migrants.

At a press conference in the border city of Del Rio, the state attorney said that “other lawsuits” led by that state against Biden’s immigration policy will be seen. “Trying to force the Administration to do the right thing”, protect citizens and follow federal law.

Accompanied by the Mayor of the City of Uvalde, Don McLaughlin, and Lieutenant Christopher Olivarez, of the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), the prosecutor also noted that he has already sued the Biden Administration six times over its policies at the border.

And he also warned that he intends to enforce the orders given by the federal courts against the Biden Government.

A few weeks ago, the prosecutor filed a motion to force the Biden Administration to comply with the program. “Stay in Mexico”, for which some 70,000 migrants were forced to wait in the neighboring country for their asylum applications to advance.

The motion is part of the legal battle of Texas and Missouri to reinstate the program. Last September the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, ordering the Biden Government to revive this measure officially called Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).

Republicans have harshly attacked the federal government in recent months for the high number of migrants who are intercepted by border agents on the dividing line with Mexico, where in recent months there have been record numbers in at least 20 years.

The prosecutor highlighted what happened precisely in the Del Río sector, which gained notoriety last month when thousands of migrants, mostly Haitians, they were crammed under an international bridge that connects the US with Mexico, waiting for the immigration agents to register his asylum request.

“The only people who are benefiting right now are the cartels, they are benefiting greatly from drug and human trafficking.”, subrayó Paxton.

The prosecutor added that “there are very few” who really know what is happening on the southern border, and that is why you are trying to draw attention to this problem.
