KEN PAXTON: It sends a sign that these courts, these judges are open to listening to concerning the regulation and what’s truly occurring.

We’ve got every kind of points with it. We’re a border state, we had a president beforehand that was coping with that problem. Successfully, we’re beginning to make progress with the wall, which reveals nice outcomes. We did not have these mass migrations from Central America.
