ㅤHe asked Mr. Paxton for an update.
ㅤ’We had a hearing yesterday, and I think it went quite well,’ Mr. Paxton replied. ‘We’ll see what the judge says, but I know we’re right on the law, and we’re right on the Constitution, so we’re confident things are going to go our way.’"

ㅤ"’Texas has argued for years that the federal executive branch lacks the power to unilaterally grant unlawfully present aliens lawful presence and work authorization,’ Mr. Paxton said in filing the lawsuit. ‘Left intact, DACA sets a dangerous precedent by giving the executive branch sweeping authority to ignore the laws enacted by Congress and change our nation’s immigration laws to suit a President’s own policy preferences.’"
