AG Paxton Continues Pressing for DACA Phase Out in U.S. District Court
“DACA is unconstitutional because it rewrote federal law without congressional approval,” Attorney General Paxton said. “Our lawsuit asks the court to prevent future illegal actions, restore the rule of law to our immigration system, and provide Congress with an opportunity to finally address the issue.”

AG Paxton Joins Bipartisan Fight to Protect Cross at Veterans Memorial
“Our military has used the cross as a symbol of military service for much of our nation’s history, including at the time of the First Amendment’s writing” Attorney General Paxton said. “Veterans memorials are reminders of the service and sacrifice of Americans who gave their lives defending our country’s freedom. Tearing down any part of a veterans memorial dishonors service members’ sacrifice and undermines the very values our Constitution was intended to protect.”

AG Paxton Congratulates Former Texas Deputy Solicitor General Andrew Oldham on His Confirmation to the 5th Circuit
“Andy Oldham is principled, smart and will faithfully interpret the rule of law, not legislate from the bench,” Attorney General Paxton said. “I’m confident Andy will make an extraordinary appellate judge and serve honorably in his new role.”

AG Paxton Commends Department of Labor for Heeding His Request to Rescind the Unlawful Obama-Era Persuader Rule
“The Persuader Rule is among the Obama administration’s most outrageous and unlawful attempts at federal overreach,” Attorney General Paxton said. “The rule would have made it more difficult and expensive for small business owners to obtain legal advice, interfering with attorney-client privilege, which is one of our most basic rights. It’s gratifying to know that the Texas-led coalition of states prevailed in its fight to do away with the onerous rule for good.”

AG Paxton Defends Constitutionality of Texas Law on the Humane Disposition of Fetal Remains
“Texas has chosen to respect unborn life by adopting rules requiring the dignified treatment of fetal remains, rather than allow health care facilities to dispose of the remains in sewers or landfills,” Attorney General Paxton said. “At the trial, we’ll demonstrate that the rules are constitutional and do not impact the abortion procedure or the availability of abortion in Texas. I’m confident in our arguments and look forward to the courts ultimately upholding Texas law.”
