GOP states hit Biden immigration policy with web of lawsuits:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced a lawsuit Tuesday that asks a federal judge to order the Biden administration to restart the “Remain in Mexico” policy, arguing it would solve the border surge.
Mr. Paxton, a Republican, says the decision to cancel the program, officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, was “arbitrary and capricious” and so poorly explained that it violates federal procedural law.
That challenge came a day after Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed a novel lawsuit arguing the Biden administration’s more lax immigration stance has spurred the surge and fostered an environmental disaster, violating the National Environmental Policy Act.
Mr. Brnovich, also a Republican, targeted the end of the MPP, but also cited the decision to halt border wall construction as Biden acts that have encouraged illegal migration, fueling environmental degradation. --->READ MORE HERE

Republican Attorneys General Plan to Create Legal Roadblocks for Biden Agenda:
Republican attorneys general are determined to mount numerous legal challenges against President Joe Biden, creating a formidable roadblock to the president’s agenda.
In less than three months since Biden was sworn into office, Republican states have waged war on his agenda, suing the administration on climate change, energy, immigration, and taxation policy. But the conservative attorneys general who started filing the lawsuits in March said they aren’t done yet and expect to continue challenging the administration in court.
“We are sharpening the pencils and filling up the inkwells,” Louisiana Attorney General and former Republican Attorneys General Association Chairman Jeff Landry, who is leading two of the ongoing lawsuits against the Biden administration, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Landry said there will be plenty of legal action and success in court against the president and his administration.
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen said Republican attorneys general believe that with a gridlocked Congress, states are the last line of defense for Constitutional rights. The attorney general added that he will continue to focus his efforts on Biden’s reliance on executive action, which the president has used to forward several key policy items. --->READ MORE HERE
