Turns out that some Republicans aren’t just going to take all of this nonsense sitting down. – Throughout the four years of Donald Trump’s presidency, every executive order he issued was immediately challenged by Lawfare lawyers in the federal courts. The leftwing activists were clever about bringing their challenges in leftist-dominated jurisdictions like Hawaii, Oregon and California, where they had the best chance of drawing a fellow leftist judge who would rule in their favor.
Many had assumed that Republicans were too dumb and timid to play the same legal games when China Joe Potato Head Biden began signing off on the dozens of orders laid out before him by his elder-abusing handlers. Frankly, given the past behavior by the GOP establishment, that seemed a pretty safe assumption.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, though, is not a part of the GOP establishment. So, when Biden issued his order freezing deportations of illegal alien criminals, Paxton immediately filed a challenge to that order. Today, the federal judge who drew the case, District Judge Drew Tipton, issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the policy nationwide for 14 days:
Texas is the FIRST state in the nation to bring a lawsuit against the Biden Admin.
AND WE WON.
Within 6 days of Biden’s inauguration, Texas has HALTED his illegal deportation freeze.
*This* was a seditious left-wing insurrection. And my team and I stopped it.

From a story at MSN.com:
A federal judge in Texas on Tuesday temporarily blocked a move by new U.S. President Joe Biden to halt the deportation of certain immigrants for a 100-day period, a swift legal setback for his ambitious immigration agenda.
U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, an appointee of former President Donald Trump in the Southern District of Texas, issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the policy nationwide for 14 days following a legal challenge by Texas.
The Biden administration is expected to appeal the ruling, which halts the policy while both parties submit briefs on the matter.
Biden promised on the campaign trail to enact a 100-day moratorium on deportations if elected, a proposal that contrasted sharply with the immigration crackdown promoted by Trump, a Republican.
Note how the story – published first by the hacks at Reuters – identifies Tipton as a Trump appointee, in stark contrast to the corrupt media’s practice of uniformly failing to made such identification of the Obama and Clinton appointees who issued nationwide restraining orders against an array of Trump orders. But hey, that’s just what the corrupt, Nazi-style news media does.
So, Republicans have their first court victory against this far-leftwing administration. Let’s hope and pray it is but the first of many more to come.
God Bless Texas.
That is all.
