Texas Requests Courts Reconsider Lawsuit to Stop Biden Administration From Misusing Parole

Attorney General Ken Paxton, America First Legal, and a coalition of attorney generals from other states are asking federal courts to reconsider Texas’ lawsuit against the Biden administration regarding the transportation of illegal aliens via air travel into U.S. cities.

The motion, filed yesterday, takes aim at the Department of Homeland Security and President Biden’s “parole” scheme—which allows 30,000 aliens from countries like Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela to enter the U.S. every month and remain in the country indefinitely.

“The program allows these aliens–after more or less flying to the destination of their choice–to obtain work permits and ultimately claim public benefits, such as food stamps and welfare,” AFL explained in a press release yesterday. “The program floods our country with legions of illegal aliens who should not be here, only further worsening the worst immigration crisis in our nation’s history.”

Back in February, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas had initially dismissed the lawsuit because it believed the states were not sufficiently harmed by the program.
