A judge has blocked President Joe Biden’s order to freeze deportations of illegals, ruling instead in favor of Texas AG Ken Paxton, who sued to stop the order.
Texas is the FIRST state in the nation to bring a lawsuit against the Biden Admin.
AND WE WON.
Within 6 days of Biden’s inauguration, Texas has HALTED his illegal deportation freeze.
*This* was a seditious left-wing insurrection. And my team and I stopped it.

“A federal ruling this Tuesday blocked the federal government from enacting a 100-day moratorium on deportations, which is a top priority of President Biden’s administration,” the AP reports. “Judge Drew Tipton gave a temporary restraining order as requested by Texas, which sued this Friday in opposition to a DHS memo that ordered immigration authorities to pause most deportations. Tipton argued that President Biden had failed ‘to give any justification for the deportation pause.'”
Pres. Biden’s order to halt deportations of violent felons and sex offenders is a betrayal of the men and women guarding our borders and a message to the world that America isn’t serious about dealing with this crisis. Judge Tipton did the right thing. https://t.co/qHmtPKdt20
