Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a motion for discovery on Thursday to investigate whether the Obama Administration misrepresented actions taken under President Obama’s executive orders granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. Governor Greg Abbott and Lt. Governor Dan Patrick quickly issued statements of support of the call for an investigation. The issue revolves around admissions by the Administration that tens of thousands of work permits have already been issued to illegal immigrants, a direct contradiction to facts presented in federal court.

Arrest of Top Zeta Leaves No One in Command, Says Mexican Government

The capture of the top man in the current structure of the Zetas drug cartel leaves one question remaining -- Who will take the helm of the fearsome criminal group? Mexico’s National Security Commissioner Monte Alejandro Rubido said currently there is no one within the structure of the cartel with the clout or power to assume command of Los Zetas. Omar Trevino “Z-42” Morales, the now former leader of the Zetas, was recently arrested by Mexican authorities. His true power came from his brother, the fearsome jailed capo Miguel Angel “Z-40” Trevino Morales, and it’s impossible to predict who will rise to power, Rubido said in a televised interview in Mexico’s Carlos Loret De Mola.

Former KKK Grand Dragon to be Tried for Capital Murder in Kansas

A Kansas judge ruled that a former grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan will stand trial for capital murder in the alleged killings of three people. The victims were shot in the parking lot of a Jewish community center and assisted-living facility nearly one-year ago. The former KKK grand dragon was convinced he was dying at the time and wanted “to make damned sure I killed some Jews or attacked the Jews before I died,” according to a statement he made to the Kansas City Star.
