CWN Editor's Note: A Texas judge has ruled that the state’s attorney general, Ken Paxton, is not permitted to shut down Annunciation House, a Catholic ministry to migrants.

Describing Paxton’s actions as “outrageous and intolerable,” Judge Francisco Dominguez ruled that the attorney general violated the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act “by substantially burdening Annunciation House’s free exercise of religion.” The judge also said that Paxton “failed to establish probable grounds” that Annunciation House broke any criminal laws.
