Don’t Mess With Texas! – Federal Judge Strikes Down Illegal Order from Biden
Texas is a force to be reckoned with and the Biden administration is trying to reckon with them.
Unfortunately for Biden, Texas is taking actions to stop an effort put forth by the administration that would put a 100-day pause on deportations on illegal immigrants.
After this had taken place, a federal judge issued a two-week restraining order on this action in order to further examine everything. Now, U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton has issued an indefinite ban on the deportation moratorium.
The reason this all came about was thanks to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton who said that this violated federal law and an agreement between Texas and the Department of Homeland Security.
The broad “pause” would have had exceptions. It would exclude those who, according to a written finding by the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), have engaged in terrorism or espionage or who pose a danger to national security. It would also exclude those who were not present in the U.S. before Nov. 1, 2020, those who agreed to waive the right to remain, and those whom the ICE director individually determined need to be removed by law.
But Texas argued the directive violates the Constitution and federal law as well as a contractual agreement between Texas and DHS signed in the final days of the Trump administration that the state would be consulted before reducing immigration enforcement or pausing deportations.
The agreement means that DHS must give Texas 180 days’ notice of any proposed change on any matter that would reduce enforcement or increase the number of “removable or inadmissible aliens” in the U.S. Paxton claims that agreement has been violated.
This moratorium comes alongside of an Executive Order that was issued right away to halt construction on the border wall, something that makes our country safer.
Here’s a question, if this is really how liberals feel, then why aren’t they condemning every other country that has border security? Forget every other country, how about Canada? Why isn’t the U.S. calling for open borders to Canada?
