The state of Texas has once again filed a lawsuit against the lawless Biden administration after turning our border with Mexico into a get-in-free turnstile.
On May 23, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton initiated a lawsuit against President Joe Biden’s administration, alleging that it unlawfully authorized migrants to enter the United States using a mobile app. Paxton argued that this app promotes illegal immigration and violates existing immigration laws.
Following the expiration of Title 42 earlier this month, the Biden administration introduced a new rule mandating asylum-seekers to seek protection in a safe third country before entering the United States. However, a government-sponsored mobile app that can be easily downloaded allows migrants to bypass the new requirement established by the Department of Homeland Security, Breitbart News reported.
The outlet noted earlier and in a separate report:
The mobile app, known as Customs and Border Protection (CBP) One, entices foreign nationals living in Mexico who are pregnant, mentally ill, elderly, disabled, homeless, or crime victims to schedule an appointment with agents at the border in the hopes of being released into American communities.
Foreign nationals in Mexico can submit their application for an appointment through the CBP One app up to 14 days in advance and then show up at eight Ports of Entry in Arizona, Texas, and California for their appointment.
Paxton, in his lawsuit, argued that the Biden administration “deliberately conceived of this phone app with the goal of illegally pre-approving more foreign aliens to enter the country and go where they please once they arrive.”
In a statement, Paxton said: “Joe Biden, Alejandro Mayorkas, and the entire Biden Administration have prioritized creating and protecting new ways for illegal aliens to stream into this country, no matter the cost or consequence to struggling American citizens. Time after time, my office has shown that we will fight back in court to defeat their unlawful open-borders policies. We intend to stop this rule from wreaking further havoc on the people of Texas.”
Needless to say, a DHS spokesperson did not address the crux of Paxton’s lawsuit — that the regime is simply failing to enforce duly passed existing laws.
“Lawful pathways like making an appointment to appear at a port of entry using the CBP One app allow us to process migrants in a safe, orderly, and humane way and reduce unlawful immigration. This is particularly critical at a time when Congress has failed to reform our broken immigration system,” the spokesperson said in a statement, according to Breitbart News.
Paxton’s lawsuit states that the mobile app “works in conjunction with the Administration’s expanded parole policies and processes to expedite and streamline the processing of aliens at the border and move them into the country more quickly,” according to the lawsuit.
“By inviting illegal aliens into Texas, Defendants will inflict costs on the State for public education, law enforcement and incarceration, unreimbursed health care, and other public services for illegal aliens,” the lawsuit notes further.
Meanwhile, in a video posted online this week, former President Donald Trump pledged to re-implement his highly effective border security measures and, on day one, issue an executive order that bans so-called “birthright citizenship.”
“As part of my plan to secure the border, on day one of my new term in office, I will sign an executive order making clear to federal agencies that under the correct interpretation of the law going forward the future children of illegal aliens will not receive automatic U.S. citizenship,” Trump said.
“Joe Biden has launched an illegal foreign invasion of our country, allowing a record number of illegal aliens to storm across our borders,” Trump added.
“My order will also end the unfair practice known as ‘birth tourism’ where hundreds of thousands of people from all over the planet squat in hotels for their last few weeks of pregnancy to illegitimately and illegally obtain U.S. citizenship for the child, often to later exploit chain migration to jump the line and get green cards for themselves and their family members,” he said.
