“It’s pretty clear that they don’t like Texas, that they don’t like Texans,” 帕克斯顿周一接受独家采访时说. 关于种族仇恨的指控, 帕克斯顿说: “他们可以讲述他们想要的所有童话故事, but they have to prove things like that. I think it sounds maybe like a good story because they make it up. But it’s just not true.”
His comments came just after the Department of Justice (司法部) filed a lawsuit alleging that Texas’ redistricting plan suppressed Black and Latino votes in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. 最近几个月, the administration also sued the state over its controversial abortion law and challenged another state law on voting.
He added that the lawsuit was part of a broader attempt to impose federal control and secure Democratic electoral victories.
帕克斯顿告诉福克斯新闻, “[拜登政府] want to control the legislature, they want to control the voting in Texas, they want to control how our districts are drawn, they want to control our Medicaid money. They want to control our borders, but yet they don’t do their job.”
“They’re all about telling us what to do and whether we can get vaccinated, whether we can have a job, whether our elected representatives can pass a bill that protects the unborn,” continued Paxton.
Paxton went on to say he thought the administration wanted “control over Republican states. They want to turn them into Democratic states, and they’ll do it any way possible – whether it’s doing damage to our economy by allowing illegals to come in that potentially cause crime and transport fentanyl, whether it’s the transmission of COVID from across the border. They’re all about allowing things and promoting things that hurt Republican states.”
