The Biden administration has already been hit with a number of lawsuits in 2021. Many of these suits involve the ongoing border situation, as southern states have called out Biden’s lack of support.
But that isn’t the only problem Republicans have with the President’s agenda. They’ve also taken issue with Biden’s relief package, which has faced heavy criticism.
Now, one state is alleging discrimination — and they want Biden’s team to be held accountable.
This lawsuit comes courtesy of Republican Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller: he’s saying Biden’s COVID relief plan doesn’t embrace equality.
Miller and the America First Legal Foundation are alleging the “racial exclusion” of white farmers and ranchers in the state. It seems non-white workers in the industry are in line for more benefits.
