Federal judge in Texas stops Biden deportation freeze

Federal judge in Texas stops Biden deportation freeze”

"The Court's decision to stop the Biden Administration from casting aside congressionally enacted immigration laws is a much-needed remedy for DHS's unlawful action".

In his order Tuesday, Tipton, who was appointed to the federal bench by former President Donald Trump, said he believed Texas was likely to succeed in arguing that the deportation pause was "arbitrary and capricious" and contrary to immigration law.

The Biden administration has not said what will happen to migrants already enrolled in the program, but DHS stated in its announcement last week they should "remain where they are" and await further US government instruction.

Judge Tipton insisted that the Homeland Security Department did not correctly follow the Administrative Procedure Act due to its failure to "supply adequate justification for the temporary suspension of deportations", New York.

"Paxton sought to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election by attempting to baselessly suppress votes; now he is attempting to force the Biden administration to follow Trump's xenophobic policies", said Kate Huddleston, attorney for the ACLU of Texas.

A federal judge in Texas has delivered a major blow to Joe Biden's immigration plan, blocking the new US President's 100-day pause on deportations.

The Department of Homeland Security referred a request for comment to the White House, which issued a statement saying the moratorium was "wholly appropriate".

Experts have said the deportation freeze is especially hurtful to border security because it essentially invites immigrants to try and cross the border illegally.

On January 8, Ken Cuccinelli, who was then the second-in-command at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), signed an agreement committing the department "to consult Texas and consider its views" before changing policies governing the enforcement of federal immigration law.

The Biden administration argued in court filings that the agreement is unenforceable because "an outgoing administration can not contract away that power for an incoming administration".

Sure Twitter, he added, "Texas is the FIRST state in the country to take legal action against Biden's administrator". Mr. Paxton's office, meanwhile, submitted a Fox News opinion article as evidence that "refusal to remove illegal aliens is directly leading to the immediate release of additional illegal aliens in Texas". Five people died in the Capitol riot, including a Capitol Police officer. "A near-complete suspension of deportations would only serve to endanger Texans and undermine federal law".

The American Civil Liberties Union, which challenged many of Mr. Trump's immigration policies, had filed an amicus brief over the weekend in support of the Biden administration, arguing that DHS has broad discretion when deciding to deport - or not deport - individuals.
