Judge Lands a Blow Against Biden’s Immigration Plan

Judge Lands a Blow Against Biden's Immigration Plan

(ConservativeHub.com) – Democrats have been trying to decide how best to promote their immigration agenda for years. Barack Obama used the power of executive actions to bypass Congress and open the border to immigrants, and Joe Biden appears to be following in his footsteps. However, the courts are not sold on the legality of what he’s trying to do.

On Tuesday, February 23, US District Judge Drew B. Tipton extended a ban on a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memorandum ordering a “100-day pause” on “certain” deportations.

His ruling indefinitely extended an earlier two-week restraining order issued after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton argued Biden’s action violated the Constitution and federal law. He also told the court it breached a contractual agreement between Texas and the DHS.

The agreement in question requires the DHS to provide a 180-day notice to Texas of any proposed changes to enforcement policies that would increase the number of “inadmissible aliens” or individuals subject to removal from the United States.

So far, Democrats don’t appear to have anything to say about Judge Tipton’s order. We will keep you updated as events unfold.
