🌵Texas Top Cop Slaps Lawsuit on Team Biden: It’s App-ocalypse Now in Immigration Debate!📲
Texan sharp-shooter Attorney General Ken Paxton is aiming his legal six-shooter at the Biden administration, due to what he calls a “crossing the line” (no pun intended!) use of a migrant admissions program. Operated through a phone app named CBP One, the program is accused of providing an entry path for migrants lacking legal claims. The AG argues that this app breaks the law, opening the borders like a Wild West saloon for all comers. So far, the app has seen 79,000 potential new Americans book appointments for entry, and Paxton says “Enough is enough!” 🌵🔫📲
Our story starts in the land where everything’s bigger, including apparently, legal fights against the feds! Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has tossed his hat into the ring, suing the Biden administration over a controversial migrant admissions program operating through the phone app, CBP One.
Now, why is Paxton riled up? It’s because the app supposedly provides an express lane for migrants without legal claims to make the U.S. their new home. In his view, this app doesn’t play by the rules, in essence creating a “welcome mat” for those with no legal standing to be in the country. Bold move, right? 😏
Launched by the Biden administration in January, amidst a surge in illegal border crossings, CBP One enables migrants to apply for U.S. entry from Mexico. This digital detour seems to have been pretty busy, with 79,000 individuals booking appointments for entry since the launch, and a whopping 22,000 processed for entry in April alone.📈
Paxton, however, sees things differently. He states that the app’s creation was a deliberate move to “illegally pre-approve more foreign aliens to enter the country.” He accuses the Biden administration of prioritizing new avenues for illegal migration into the country, without considering the cost or consequences to American citizens. Heavy accusations, wouldn’t you say? 🤔
As the Trump-era expulsion order, known as Title 42, ended on May 11, the Biden administration has leaned more on the CBP One app to manage migrant admissions. Yet, Paxton vows to keep fighting against these “unlawful open-borders policies” in court.
Interestingly, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the White House didn’t respond immediately to requests for comments. Is this the calm before the storm, or are they simply staying mum to avoid stirring the pot? 🤫
It’s clear that Paxton is set to go guns blazing against what he perceives as an unlawful rule wreaking havoc on Texas. But the real question here is whether his legal showdown will reshape immigration policy or simply fan the flames of an already heated debate. 💥🔥
As we watch this legal rodeo unfold, we must ask: Does the CBP One app represent a well-intentioned effort to manage migration efficiently, or is it an ill-conceived backdoor for unlawful entry? Will this lawsuit bring change, or will it be lost in the bureaucratic wilderness like a tumbleweed in the Texan wind? 🌬️🍃 Over to you, folks. What do you reckon?
