The Texas attorney general led a 15-state coalition Monday defending President Trumps revised immigration order, amid lawsuits opposing the plan to halt immigration from six countries.
In a friend-of-the-court amicus brief to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, 13 other state attorneys general and Republican Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, laid out constitutional and federal statutory provisions defending Trumps authority. The attorneys general also defended Trumps lawful actions to revise the executive order, which was blocked last month by a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit.
The presidents revised immigration order is constitutional, lawful, addresses the 9th Circuits concerns and is a vital step in securing our borders, Paxton said in a statement.

Well played blueplum.
I agree. Strangely, the state is very resilient. Despite being under Democrat control for more than 50 years, it still continues to chug on. I think these same policies would have killed many other states.

It has been literally trashed.
So many millions of middle class producers have left to make way for the blight that flowed in.

Beautiful lavish meadows
Ocean beaches, cliffs, buttresses
a Sub sea level depression
Mountains the highest and lowest points in the lower 48 states
a Rich Variety of wildlife
Amazing one-of Trees and parks
a Rich Variety of wildlife
the Massive rock formations of Yosemite Valley and other places
Fertile farmland for crops, fruit, and vinyards
One-of Rock formations
Hot water springs
Rich mineral deposits
In some parts of the state you can ski in the morning and sunbathe in the afternoon.
All this has been tarnished by governance that in many instances limits the abundance we have been gifted with.
