Attorney General Ken Paxton Responds to Biden Administration’s Demand that Texas “Cease and Desist” Securing its Border

AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has responded to a cease-and-desist letter sent by the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) demanding that Texas end its enhanced border security measures in Eagle Pass’s Shelby Park. DHS sent the letter on January 14 and requested compliance with their orders by January 17, threatening to escalate the issue.

On January 11, the Texas Military Department secured Shelby Park in Eagle Pass, Texas, to protect public safety and repair degradation that had occurred in the structure that was protecting local residents from illegal activities.

DHS then alleged that the increased security measures led to the deaths of several aliens who died after attempting to illegally cross the Rio Grande—claims that are contradicted by the Department of Justice’s filings with the Supreme Court of the United States.

Attorney General Paxton’s letter notes that Texas continues to permit U.S. Border Patrol to use the Shelby Park boat ramp to render emergency medical care when needed. Additionally, federal agents on the ground informed Texas of the situation only after the emergency situation had ended and Mexican officials had recovered several bodies. Nevertheless, Texas national guardsmen immediately began a diligent search to confirm that no one else was in need of emergency medical assistance.

In the letter, Attorney General Paxton states: “Rather than addressing Texas’s urgent requests for protection, President Biden has authorized DHS to send a threatening letter through its lawyers. But Texas has lawyers, too, and I will continue to stand up for this State’s constitutional powers of self-defense. Instead of running to the U.S. Department of Justice in hopes of winning an injunction, you should advise your clients at DHS to do their job and follow the law.”

Texas will not surrender to Biden’s destructive open-border policies. Attorney General Paxton will continue to defend Texas as it uses its constitutional authority to defend state territory, sovereignty, and citizens.

Attorney General Ken Paxton Secures En Banc Rehearing in Border Buoys Lawsuit

AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has secured an en banc rehearing by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit concerning the Biden Administration’s attempt to force Texas to remove buoys placed in the Rio Grande at the Texas-Mexico border. The buoy system was deployed by Texas to reduce the number of unvetted aliens attempting to enter the United States at a dangerous and illegal river crossing rather than a designated port of entry.

In December 2023, a Fifth Circuit panel issued a split decision upholding a district judge’s order demanding that Texas move the buoys to the Texas side of the river bank. Attorney General Paxton immediately filed a petition to rehear the case before the full court and to allow the buoys to remain in place while the court considered the petition. Now that the Fifth Circuit has granted an en banc hearing, the order to move the buoys will continue to be stayed. Argument before the en banc Fifth Circuit is scheduled for May 2024.

Watchman Says The People Can Count on Paxton: Attorney General Ken Paxton Files Response with SCOTUS Opposing Biden Administration’s Effort to Resume Destruction of Texas Border Barrier–Obama/ Biden Are Vicious Satan Soldiers

By StevieRay Hansen | January 12, 2024 |

HNewsWire: AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a response to the Biden Administration’s request that the Supreme Court of the United States (“SCOTUS”) vacate a current injunction that protects Texas concertina wire barriers near the United States-Mexico border from being destroyed by federal agents. In October 2023, Attorney General Paxton sued the Biden Administration for destroying concertina wire fencing that Texas had deployed to reduce the record-breaking influx of illegal immigration. Texas quickly secured an emergency restraining order from a federal judge that ordered federal agents to cease doing so. Although the federal judge found the Administration’s actions likely unlawful, she declined to grant the State’s requested relief. Attorney General Paxton successfully appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and quickly obtained an administrative stay and, subsequently, an injunction pending appeal to prevent…

Watchman: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Secures Administrative Stay Preventing Biden and Mayorkas (Satan Soldiers) from Destroying Texas Border Barriers

By StevieRay Hansen | December 5, 2023 |

HNewsWire: AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today secured an administrative stay that will prevent the federal government from destroying Texas’s concertina wire fencing along the United States-Mexico border while the case continues to work its way through the courts. The Fifth Circuit has barred federal immigration officials from damaging Texas’s wire fences while the U.S. Department of Justice prepares a response to Texas’s motion for an injunction pending appeal of the district court’s order. The stay was granted in Texas’s landmark lawsuit against the Biden Administration just days after a federal district court judge denied the State’s effort to enjoin the federal government from cutting, destroying, damaging, or otherwise interfering with Texas’s concertina wire border fence. Attorney General Paxton immediately appealed. In October, Attorney General Paxton filed a lawsuit and a motion for preliminary injunction against the Biden…
