Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has opened an investigation into the Texas Bar Foundation for its possibly aiding and abetting the mass influx of illegal aliens. The investigation is based on credible complaints filed by U.S. Congressman Troy Nehls (TX-22) and members of the public.
The Texas Bar Foundation is alleged to have knowingly given donations to entities that encourage, participate in, and fund illegal immigration at the Texas-Mexico border, and potentially using taxpayer dollars received from the State Bar of Texas, which appoints the Foundation’s trustees. If true, this is likely an improper use of charitable funds because the funds are diverted from their intended—and potentially unlawful—purpose.
The Attorney General is granted broad powers under the Texas Constitution and by statute to investigate charities to ensure they are operating for the public benefit and in compliance with state law.
“Unfortunately, at the very time that our state is facing an unprecedented border crisis and our brave men and women are serving Texas in Operation Lone Star, it appears that the liberal State Bar’s handpicked cronies are misusing charitable funds to make the situation even worse. I will not let this illegal behavior continue any further. Thank you to Congressman Nehls and other concerned citizens for bringing this to my attention.”Texas AG Ken Paxton
Rep. Troy Nehls, a Republican congressman from Texas, and other complainants gave him probable cause to open the investigation into the Texas Bar Foundation.
The Texas-Mexico Border is currently being crossed by more than 200,000 illegal migrants a month.
“Go ahead sleepy Joe, continue down this path,” Nehls said. “And there will be that tsunami in 2022.. The American people don’t agree with what’s taking place at our southern border, and the 100,000 lives that are lost each year because of fentanyl.”
Paxton demanded the bar turn over to his investigators evidence that includes documentation showing:
- All grants to immigration-related charitable programs and organizations for the past 10 years;
- The monitoring, reporting and accountability requirements for use of those funds awarded to such organizations;
- the Foundation’s final accounting and reporting from the grantee organizations reflecting how the funds were specifically utilized;
- Board and/or committee meeting minutes discussing the awarding, monitoring, reporting and accounting of any such programs and/or grantee organizations.
- Names of appointees made to the Texas Bar Foundation by the current State Bar of Texas President Sylvia Borunda Firth.
