AG Paxton Files Brief in Support of Indiana’s Sanctuary Cities Law
“The settlement between Marion County and the ACLU is an attempt to get around a state law they don’t agree with,” Attorney General Paxton said. “The policy agreed to by the county obstructs the federal government’s ability to enforce the nation’s immigration laws, and it puts the safety of police officers and the public at risk. Indiana’s sanctuary cities law should be fully enforced.”

AG Paxton Praises Ruling Against Waller County in Retaliatory Open Carry Lawsuit

It erodes public trust in our schools and, more importantly, diverts taxpayer funds from their intended purpose—enabling educators to provide the youth of Texas the education and skills they need to succeed in life and fully participate in our democracy.”

I’m pleased the Trump administration will reconsider the rules and I am confident they will ultimately be rescinded.”

AG Paxton Prevails in Lawsuit to Protect Tax Cuts for Carson County Homeowners
“Local governments, including school districts, cannot pick and choose which laws to abide by,” Attorney General Paxton said. “White Deer ISD was taking homeowners’ hard-earned money in violation of the Texas Constitution and state law. This lawsuit was about standing up for homeowners in Carson County and Texas voters.”
