Texas AG back at the office

 (My new American Thinker post)

As you probably know, our Attorney General Ken Paxton is back to work after surviving conviction following impeachment.   I said back then that he should focus on the Biden administration rather than getting even with GOP members who voted for his impeachment.  I don't know for sure if he took my advice but I like this:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued the Biden administration on Tuesday, claiming that the Border Patrol illegally destroyed state property when its agents cut through concertina wire on the banks of the Rio Grande to “assist” migrants to “illegally cross” the border.

Within the past three years, the Texas Military Department has spent $11 million to place 70,000 rolls of concertina wire in different parts of the Texas-Mexico border, most notably in Eagle Pass, where migrants have been seriously injured trying to get through the wire.

The concertina wire is part of Gov. Greg Abbott’s efforts to stem illegal immigration at the 1,200-mile border.    

According to the lawsuit, filed in the Western District of Texas, Border Patrol agents “not only cut Texas’ concertina wire, but also attach ropes or cables from the back of pickup trucks to ease” migrants’ ability to get onto the U.S. side of the river.

Good move.  The attorney general has a duty to fight a Biden administration that will not protect the U.S. border.  It is not Texas' job but someone has to do it if the federal government won't do theirs.

Politically speaking, this is a smart move by AG Paxton.  His best work has been fighting the Biden administration over the border and other overreaching executive orders.
