A federal judge in South Texas is trying to save America from Biden’s radical immigration overhaul.
U.S. District Court Judge Drew Tipton ordered an indefinite ban on the enforcement of Biden’s directive to halt all deportations. This move comes after the Texas Attorney General’s office filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration claiming the deportation halt was unconstitutional.
Joe Biden violated an agreement between Texas and the Department of Homeland Security requiring the federal government to consult with the southern state before any immigration decisions were made, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton revealed. Paxton said Biden’s executive order clearly breaks federal law.
Fox News reported:
The agreement states that Texas must be given 180 days’ notice from the DHS before any proposed change seeking to reduce enforcement, or increase the number of permissible illegal aliens. The Biden administration clearly violated this agreement.
Thank to the judge’s order, Biden’s executive order cannot be enforced by the Department of Homeland Security or the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
In the 2020 fiscal year, ICE officers deported 185,884 migrants who were ordered to be removed from the U.S. by a federal judge, majority of whom had criminal convictions or pending charges. ICE officers deported 4,276 known or suspected gang members and 31 known or suspected terrorists, according to a year-end report.
