In early February, the White House announced that it would make an executive order to allow states to decide how to enforce immigration laws.
The idea was to ease the strain on local law enforcement, which had been fighting the Trump administration on immigration, and also to let the federal government take the lead on enforcing federal laws.
But now, that order has been challenged in court by states like Texas, and a federal judge has ordered the Trump Administration to clarify how it will implement the executive order.
As the administration struggles to make headway on the plan, the fight over the meaning of “states” and “states’ rights” in the executive orders that make up the federal law has begun to take center stage.
As with most of the president’s executive orders, the order has to go through a lengthy review process before it becomes law.
In the meantime, states have begun taking steps to challenge the executive actions.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is currently challenging the executive action on a number of fronts, including the fact that it does not give Texas any authority to enforce federal immigration laws, that it leaves enforcement of federal immigration enforcement to local governments, and that it fails to allow local jurisdictions to determine whether or not they are enforcing immigration laws and what their policies are.
Paxton has also filed a motion in the federal district court for the Northern District of Texas seeking to prevent enforcement of the executive amnesty.
He said in a statement on Tuesday that the executive plan is “unconstitutional, arbitrary, and inconsistent with federal immigration law.”
In his motion, Paxton also questioned whether the executive immigration action is an unconstitutional and unconstitutional attempt to “take away people’s rights to self-determination, property rights, and equal protection under the law.”
Paxton argues that the Trump executive order violates the Constitution by imposing a “substantial burden” on the states to enforce laws, because it “directly and substantially burdens” local law enforcers.
He argues that it violates the federal Constitution by failing to allow federal agencies to enforce state laws.
While it is possible that the judge will grant the motion, he is currently appealing the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, which has ruled that the Executive Order is constitutional.
It is unclear if the ruling by the 5ths Circuit is binding on the Supreme Court.
The executive amnesty is one of the many controversial and contentious actions the Trump White House has taken since taking office.
It has already been challenged, for instance, in the 5-4 decision by the U-S Court of Federal Claims, which ruled that an executive amnesty does not violate the Constitution.
The 5th Cir.
has also blocked the Trump government from enforcing a similar executive order, the Executive Orders from Executive Order 12333, which requires federal agencies and departments to give priority to local enforcement of immigration laws on the basis of their states’ interests.
But even the appeals court’s ruling could not stop Trump from issuing a second executive order in early March.
The second executive amnesty would not have to go into effect until January 1, 2019.
Trump is expected to sign that order, which would provide a temporary amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to the U, but also allow the administration to keep in place many of the policies that have been in place since the first executive order was issued.
The Trump administration has said that the second executive action would allow states, local governments and individuals to decide whether or how to comply with federal law.
It would also allow states and local governments to issue temporary licenses to undocumented immigrants to work, and allow them to carry concealed weapons.
Paeson said in his motion that “the administration’s failure to make clear how this amnesty will be enforced is an obvious violation of the states’ rights and an unconstitutional usurpation of power.”
