Illegal Order of Incompetent Judge in Texas Has Been Challenged By Attorney General

184

The ruling issued by El Paso County Judge Ricardo A. Samaniego for a two-week forced quarantine and re-closure of non-essential businesses has been challenged by Attorney General Ken Paxton.

"Since the inception of this pandemic, El Paso County has never seen this level of infections through our community," he said at Thursday's news conference. "Our hospitals are at capacity, our medical professionals are overwhelmed, and if we don't respond we will see unprecedented levels of deaths."

The El Paso Police Department refused to comply with the illegal orders of Judge Samaniego.

Samaniego does not have the authority to order a shutdown. Gov. Greg Abbott’s recent executive order on reopening the economy, GA-32, “explicitly preempts all contradictory local orders,” Paxton stated.

 

El Paso Mayor Dee Margo explained in a series of tweets why the judge was wrong.
