Texas and Missouri are suing the Biden Administration in an attempt to resume construction of the border wall.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt made the announcement Thursday in El Paso, claiming that stopping wall construction was unconstitutional.
Paxton said the money for the wall had already been set aside by Congress, and refusing to use those funds for their intended purpose is illegal.
President Biden paused construction on the wall soon after taking office.
