Fox 7: Coale Predicts Supreme Court Intervention in Latest Legal Border Lawsuit

The U.S. Supreme Court may eventually have to resolve the latest federal lawsuit the Biden Administration filed against the state of Texas, according to LPHS attorney David Coale. The legal action, initiated on Wednesday, is an attempt by President Biden to strike down Senate Bill 4, passed by the Texas Legislature and set to take effect this March.

"This one is the clearest challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court's reasoning in the United States v. Arizona that we've seen in a while," Coale said in a Fox 7-Austin interview. “Is it something that states have always been able to do or is it part of the limited set of powers that were given exclusively to the federal government in the Constitution. That's an interesting question. I mean, it also is a wrinkle that isn't in the Supreme Court guidance we have on this,” he says.
