On Monday, Texas officials said they will take Biden to court over his proposals to open up the U.S. border, forgive student debt and restrict manufacturing activity.

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) said Biden’s policies come in blatant violation of the constitutional rights of U.S. states. Abbott added the litigation will focus on stopping federal overreaches on immigration and the environment.

Meanwhile, Texas led similar lawsuits against the Obama administration during its time in office.
