Since day one of Biden taking the White House he has thrust his power to sign several executive orders and Republicans do not plan to let this go unchecked, according to The Red State.
Among the executive order that Biden has signed regard matters pertaining to climate change, energy, immigration, and taxation.
It has been reported that many lawsuits have been filed in response to these forced executive decisions and the attornies that are leading the operation are not through just yet.
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry stated, “We are sharpening the pencils and filling up the inkwells.”
At The Present Time, AG Landry is leading two lawsuits against The Biden Administration.
Landry indicated that he expects “plenty of legal action and success in court against the president and his administration.”
Landry and his team of officials believe that their plans are an imperative response to Biden’s attempt to push his agenda regarding subjects such as gun control, immigration, climate change, energy, and taxation.
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen said, “When you step in on day one and start issuing edicts and executive orders like King George, I and a lot of other conservative Republicans are going to start having problems.”
“State attorneys general are coming into their own and realizing they can be an effective pushback against an overreaching executive.”
The Daily Caller reported, “Biden has signed 38 executive orders compared to former Presidents Donald Trump, Barack Obama and George W. Bush who signed 23, 18 and 8 orders respectively during their first 11 weeks in office.”
From The Red State:
Knudsen led 21 attorneys general in suing the White House over Biden’s executive order rescinding the federal permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline. Montana linked up with Arizona to push back against Biden’s executive order halting deportations.
Landry, meanwhile, has led legal challenges against Biden over his executive order banning new oil and gas leases on federal lands and his orders that have allegedly contributed to immigration authorities releasing criminal illegal immigrants into the U.S.
The report also notes that West Virginia “led a group of 13 states challenging the Treasury Department over an American Rescue Plan provision prohibiting states from cutting taxes after accepting coronavirus relief funds.”

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey told the Daily Caller: “The Biden administration has already gone much further than Barack Obama. The Obama administration would sometimes pause on various topics and really be very sensitive to the public relations appearance.”
He added: “Biden is going a lot further across the board.”
There are also plans to challenge Biden’s recent executive orders targeting gun rights.
These efforts mirror that of the legal challenges mounted by Democratic attorneys general against President Trump’s policies. They filed hundreds of lawsuits against the administration, and according to The Institute for Policy Integrity, almost 80% were successful.
But now, the shoe is on the other foot and it appears that these officials mean business. If the Democrats believe their president will successfully ram through his agenda through executive orders, they might have another think coming.
