Texas AG Paxton: Our Constitution ‘becomes meaningless’ when federal government censors Americans

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton explains why it was important for his state to join conservative media outlets in a lawsuit against the U.S. State Department for allegedly facilitating and funding unconstitutional censorship. “The federal government has an obligation to defend the Constitution.

They’re actually censoring, a violation of the First Amendment, individual speech,” Paxton says. “And if the federal government can do that, then our Constitution becomes meaningless.”
