United States v. Texas — Merits Amicus Brief

Jeremiah Morgan Administrative Law, Constitutional Law, Statutory Construction, U. S. Supreme Court

Today, our firm filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court, in support of Texas and Louisiana and their challenge to the Biden Administration’s written policy not to enforce certain immigration laws. Our amicus brief argued that the States have standing to challenge the unlawful federal actions, both under the doctrine of “special solicitude” standing and parens patriae standing. Our brief also explained that the federal government’s justifications for refusing to enforce certain provisions of the Immigration and Naturalization Act were pretextual, not the real reasons for the Biden Administration’s actions. Finally, we explained that the failure to enforce the immigration laws violates the Article II duty of the president to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” Our brief was filed on behalf of Citizens United, Citizens United Foundation, and The Presidential Coalition.
