Some call them the last line of defense.
They are the 26 Republican Attorney Generals, the only ones standing between the Biden administration's massive spending, and radical left agenda.
Led by Ken Paxton of Texas, the AG's have already filed multiple lawsuits over the last couple of months on everything from immigration, the Keystone pipeline, abortion rights, and even some of the pork that was in the $1.9 trillion dollar Covid relief bill.
Paxton recently told Fox News, "More AG's are speaking out on a President that is out of control already. I don't think there's anything more important today that we can address."
Josh Blackman, professor at the South Texas College of Law told KTRH, "Republicans are trying to prevent Biden from going too far with his executive power."
And even though Donald Trump is no longer in office, this is where the hundreds of federal judges that he appointed come into play. And it recently paid off after a judge in Corpus Christi ruled against Biden who tried to impose a 100-day hold on any deportations. The judge ruled the executive order was unconstitutional.
And if you think this is petty bickering by the GOP because the Democrats have control? Don't forget new HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra filed over 100 lawsuits while Trump was in office.
