Joe Biden is trying to dismantle America’s borders. But thanks to one Federal judge, Biden’s mission to fundamentally change America just got a lot harder.
A federal judge has blocked President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from implementing a halt on deportations, a blow to the administration’s efforts to dismantle interior immigration enforcement.
Hours after taking office on January 20, Biden’s administration issued a memo that sought to halt most deportations of illegal aliens for at least 100 days. As a result, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit, requesting a preliminary injunction on the “unlawful” deportation halt.
That’s when federal judge Drew B. Tipton granted a preliminary injunction that banned the Biden administration from halting deportations.
Dale Wilcox with the Immigration Reform Law Insitute (IRLI) said Tipton’s blockage of the deportation halt “should hold up on appeal” and called Biden’s memo a “bizarre and sinister attempt to shutter our entire immigration law enforcement system.”
“What the administration can never explain, and has never explained, is how this disastrous directive, which would send a wave of criminal aliens out onto the streets of Texas and the whole country, is even a rational policy, let alone the product of reasoned decision-making, as the law requires,” Wilcox said.
This is a good first step. Let’s hope that the injunction becomes permanent.
