One executive order after the other has defined the Biden presidency. The 46th president’s pattern of ruling by the pen arrives after his inaugural address containing themes of healing, working across the political aisle, etc.
Multiple sources, from the leftist New York Times to Republicans across America, are urging Biden to tone it down when it comes to the executive orders. The American people should also know that Biden has signed many times more executive actions than prior presidents; this isn’t a good thing, though.
The 46th president’s executive actions are putting folks out of work left and right. Furthermore, there is no sign that Biden plans on stopping this course of action unless he is forced to.
This explains why multiple attorney generals from Republican states are warning that if Biden doesn’t knock it off, he’s going to be sued, reports Newsmax.
A Potential Lawsuit Against the 46th President
Attorney generals from Texas, West Virginia, Indiana, Montana, Arkansas, and Mississippi are warning Biden. In a letter, the attorney generals declared that Biden’s back-to-back executive orders are reminiscent of “executive unilateralism” and cannot go on.

Citing “spending sprees,” the Green New Deal, and sweeping healthcare changes as their concerns, the GOP state attorney generals explained that Biden won’t be allowed to go beyond his legal power. Likewise came the attorney generals’ warnings that they’ve previously shut down “unlawful executive actions” and will do so again, if necessary.
Finally, the letter concludes with a note of an impending lawsuit if the 46th president continues on his current course of action.
A Check on Executive Actions
The letter from the six attorney generals is welcomed by many conservatives and folks who oppose Biden’s executive order mania.
It’s all very interesting, though; Biden himself once criticized the excessive use of executive actions. Although, since he is now president, Biden clearly intends to employ executive orders as much as possible.
When the @JoeBiden admin breaks the law, I take action. I have told @DHSgov to immediately rescind its illegal, unconscionable deportation freeze—or TX will sue.

The ultimate check on the Biden administration shall arrive next year if Republicans take back the House. This is a major goal for the GOP; likewise, former President Trump himself already committed to helping Republicans regain the House majority.
