President Joe Biden has run into the first elements of the quickly forming Republican resistance in the form of red-state Attorney Generals who have promised to oppose his immigration agenda.
State Attorney Generals Patrick Morrisey (WV), Ken Paxton (TX), Austin Knudsen (MT), Lynn Fitch (MS), Todd Rokita (IN), and Leslie Rutledge (AR) have all warned Biden in a letter that they will pursue legal action if Biden radically changes immigration policy via executive order.
In the letter, they said, “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. You can be assured that we will do so again, if necessary.”
Republican states will have a key ally in the courts when it comes to putting up a strong resistance to Biden’s radical agenda. Thanks to former President Trump, who appointed a record number of judges, Republicans should get a fair hearing in court when it comes to challenging Biden’s executive actions.
Red state AGs should use the courts to fight back against Biden’s unilateral actions and radical agenda.
This is great news for Republicans who have found themselves mostly powerless in both the House and the Senate. States can resist Biden; the question is, do they have the willpower?
