Ken Paxton just filed a suit challenging the groups at the heart of America’s border crisis


The state of Texas is literally on the front lines of the illegal immigration crisis.

Governor Greg Abbott has activated the National Guard in an attempt to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into the country.

And Ken Paxton just filed a suit challenging the groups at the heart of America’s border crisis.

Annunciation House has worked with over 500,000 migrants from over 40 countries

Annunciation House is a Christian nonprofit organization located in El Paso, Texas. 

According to their website, the organization was founded in 1978 “to serve the poorest of the poor” in El Paso-Juarez and the surrounding border communities.

The group has a long history of serving people from other countries who have come to live in the state of Texas. 

The website says that “during its 45-year-plus history, Annunciation House has hosted over 500,000 migrants, refugees, and immigrants from over 40 countries.”

In recent years, Annunciation House has been especially busy as record numbers of illegal immigrants cross the southern border into Texas. 

The migrant surge began to reach the current highs in 2021 following a relaxed stance toward border policies by the Biden administration.

The nation is reeling from the strain on resources, and people want to see an end to it.

Ken Paxton: The Annunciation House broke the law

People are starting to point out how deeply involved nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have become in the illegal immigration crisis. 

Annunciation House is one of those organizations that have come under fire for their actions related to illegal immigration. 

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is trying to take a closer look at their operations. 

On February 7, Paxton officially requested to review their records, but he was met with a temporary restraining order the following day. 

The restraining order was issued by District Court Judge Francisco Dominguez.

Paxton’s office has now filed a countersuit with the District Court to lift the restraining order and to revoke the registration of Annunciation House “on the grounds that it has violated the law.” 

He argued that the group has “failed to permit OAG (Office of Attorney General) to inspect, examine, and make copies of Annunciation House’s records in response to a valid Request to Examine.”

Texas fires a warning shot at every organization “responsible for worsening illegal immigration”

Paxton accused the group of “openly and flagrantly violating many provisions of law in a systematic fashion.” 

The filing further claims that they have received admissions from the staff at Annunciation House that they have “assisted migrants in the past who had not surrendered to Border Patrol.”

His office has further been informed by their organization that they intend to continue these activities despite the overt legal violations that they have committed. 

Paxton released a statement slamming NGOs and the federal government for their complicity in the crisis.

“The chaos at the southern border has created an environment where NGOs, funded with taxpayer money by the Biden administration, facilitate astonishing horror including human smuggling,” he said.

Paxton promised to continue pushing back on the federal government as it “perpetuates the lawlessness destroying this country” and vowed “to hold these organizations responsible for worsening illegal immigration.”
