SUMMARY: El Paso leaders, including U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar, condemned Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's threat to shut down Annunciation House—a 50-year-old migrant shelter network. Paxton's lawyers demanded records from the shelters and refused a request for more time, threatening closure. A lawyer representing the shelter sued, saying Paxton is focusing his power on a religious organization, which Paxton accuses of criminal offenses, including smuggling and operating a stash house. Despite the legal battle, local officials emphasize the city's commitment to providing aid to migrants. A hearing is set for March 7.

SUMMARY: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed suit against Denton Independent School District, alleging violation of state law by principals Lindsay Lujan and Jesus Lujan for sending staff emails from school accounts advocating against school voucher opponents. These emails, sent in February, included links to candidate lists and emphasized the importance of educator turnout in primaries, with both principals allocating time for staff to vote. Paxton argues that the use of government resources for political campaigning is improper, seeking injunctions to prevent such practices. Denton ISD has committed to following election laws and training staff accordingly.
