Here's What 6 State AGs Plan to Do if Biden Admin Violates the Constitution; Red State AGs Warn Biden They Will Sue Administration over Changes to Immigration Rules

Here's What 6 State AGs Plan to Do if Biden Admin Violates the Constitution:
In his first days in office, President Joe Biden has already begun to employ a strategy of legislating through the executive branch. If he oversteps the boundaries of the Constitution, six state attorneys general are ready to take action.
The AGs of West Virginia, Arkansas, Indiana, Mississippi, Montana and Texas sent a warning letter to Biden, according to Fox News.
“The President cannot cut constitutional corners or shirk statutory strictures without inevitably doing more harm to our country than good,” they wrote in the letter.
“[B]y this letter we respectfully urge you when pursuing your policy priorities to honor the core constitutional tenets which should be appreciated and respected by every person entrusted with the honor and burdens of the presidency.”

The officials noted that Biden’s first week “appears to indicate” that his administration “may be following the unfortunate path of executive unilateralism” and warned that they will take action in the event of “cabinet officials, executive officers, and agencies” moving beyond their authority. The Republicans listed specific issues that may arise — from the administration attempting to implement the “extreme ‘Green New Deal'” agenda to “tearing down immigration statutes” via “executive fiat.”
“Overreaching and defying Congress will not be rewarded or succeed. Our States have led the charge in successfully challenging unauthorized and unlawful executive actions, as you know from your years as Vice President,” they warned. “You can be assured that we will do so again, if necessary”: --->READ MORE HERE
