AG Paxton Statement on the President’s Revised Immigration Order 


AUSTIN – Attorney General Ken Paxton today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s revised executive order on immigration:


“The executive order issued today by President Trump is a direct response to an ongoing weakness in the refugee vetting process, which was identified to Congress by multiple federal officials, but left unaddressed by the Obama administration. In light of the looming threat of terrorism, the president has both the constitutional authority and solemn duty to take reasonable steps in securing our border. President Trump’s action shows decisiveness in answer to a very real danger, and I appreciate his efforts to protect the safety and security of Texans and all Americans.”
