  • Biden’s 100 Day Ban on Deportations Blocked Indefinitely By a Federal Judge

    A federal judge in Texas has indefinitely blocked President Biden’s efforts to impose a 100-day ban on deportations for illegal immigrants. Biden proposed a freeze on deportations for all illegal aliens during his first 100 days in office during his campaign. ... U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton indefinitely banned any enforcement of that 100-day moratorium on deportations. Tipton’s ruling is viewed as a victory for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who filed a lawsuit against the federal government over the 100-day pause on deportations. But it doesn’t exclusively apply to Texas.

    The Biden administration’s efforts to impose a 100-day pause on deportations of illegal immigrants were dealt another blow on Tuesday when a district judge extended a ban on its imposition in response to a lawsuit from Texas. U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton indefinitely banned enforcement of the Jan. 20 memorandum that would have implemented a 100-day moratorium on most deportations. Tipton had previously issued a two-week restraining order on the policy after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had argued that it violated federal law and an agreement with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that Texas be consulted before such...

  • New Biden rules for ICE point to fewer arrests and deportations, and a more restrained agency

    The Washington Post ^ | 02/07/21 | Nick Miroff and Maria Sacchetti
    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is preparing to issue new guidelines to agents this week that could sharply curb arrests and deportations, as the Biden administration attempts to assert more control over an agency afforded wide latitude under President Donald Trump, according to internal memos and emails obtained by The Washington Post. While ICE’s new operational plans are not yet final, interim instructions sent to senior officials point to a major shift in enforcement. Agents will no longer seek to deport immigrants for crimes such as driving under the influence and assault, and will focus instead on national security threats,...

    Jackson County, Texas sheriff A.J. Louderback says the Biden administration is enforcing its no deportation policy and creating “lawlessness” at the southern border. “Every peace officer in the United States should be extremely concerned about the attitude, the lawlessness, the complete abject removal of law,” Louderback told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Under President Joe Biden’s non-deportation rules, immigrants can’t be deported if they get a DUI, commit fraud, tax crimes, or assault, Fox News reported, noting that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will be stood down. “The memo that I received this last week it’s essentially a defund ICE...

    A federal judge blocked Joe Biden’s administration from enforcing the new president’s Executive Order that initiated a 100-day deportation freeze, following a lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton alleging the pause was unconstitutional. Judge Drew Tipton from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, a former President Donald Trump appointee, issued a temporary restraining order against the Department of Homeland Security, a move that will apply across the United States for 14 days. “Texas has thus far satisfactorily demonstrated it is entitled to immediate and temporary relief from the January 20 Memorandum’s 100-day pause on removals,”...

Texas is the FIRST state in the nation to bring a lawsuit against the Biden Admin. AND WE WON.

    Turns out that some Republicans aren’t just going to take all of this nonsense sitting down. – Throughout the four years of Donald Trump’s presidency, every executive order he issued was immediately challenged by Lawfare lawyers in the federal courts. The leftwing activists were clever about bringing their challenges in leftist-dominated jurisdictions like Hawaii, Oregon and California, where they had the best chance of drawing a fellow leftist judge who would rule in their favor. Many had assumed that Republicans were too dumb and timid to play the same legal games when China Joe Potato Head Biden began signing off...

    A federal judge on Tuesday barred the U.S. government from enforcing a 100-day deportation moratorium that is a key immigration priority of President Joe Biden. U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a temporary restraining order sought by Texas, which sued on Friday against a Department of Homeland Security memo that instructed immigration agencies to pause most deportations. Tipton said the Biden administration had failed “to provide any concrete, reasonable justification for a 100-day pause on deportations.” Tipton’s order is an early blow to the Biden administration, which has proposed far-reaching changes sought by immigration advocates, including a plan to legalize...

    Texas sued the U.S. government for ordering a halt to most deportations of undocumented immigrants, the first major lawsuit challenging President Joe Biden’s policies just two days into his term and a likely sign of what’s to come from other Republican-led states. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton claims the directive from the Department of Homeland Security violated federal law by failing to seek input from the state. Paxton also accused the administration of failing to enforce immigration laws and granting a “blanket amnesty.” “On its first day in office, the Biden Administration cast aside congressionally enacted immigration laws and suspended...

    Texas Attorney General ^ | 1/22/2020 | Attorney General Ken Paxton
    Attorney General Ken Paxton today filed a complaint and motion for temporary restraining order in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, asking the Court to immediately halt the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) freeze on deportations of illegal aliens. On its first day in office, the Biden Administration cast aside congressionally enacted immigration laws and suspended the removal of illegal aliens whose removal is compelled by those very laws. The move violates the U.S. Constitution, federal immigration and administrative law, and a contractual agreement between Texas and DHS. Last night, Attorney General Paxton issued a...

    The action comes under the Deferred Enforced Departure program that offers deportation protections and work permits to immigrants in the country without authorization As one of his final acts in office, President Trump has authorized a program to give work permits and deportation protections to Venezuelan immigrants in the U.S. without legal permission, an action President-elect Joe Biden had promised to take during the 2020 campaign. The designation formally known as Deferred Enforced Departure offers legal protections to any Venezuelan national present in the U.S. as of Jan. 20, 2021, for 18 months. That is likely to benefit at least...

    U.S. immigration officials quietly announced they would resume regular apprehension and detention practices, an apparent reversal from an earlier temporary suspension of non-criminal enforcement due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Late Friday afternoon, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement updated its COVID-19 information webpage to say that the agency is “confident that our officers can properly and safely carry out operations.”... During the pandemic, the agency had said it would focus its enforcement on “public safety risks and individuals subject to mandatory detention based on criminal grounds.” Examples included investigations into child exploitation, gangs, narcotics trafficking, human trafficking, human smuggling and terrorism....

    by Joe Callen A federal appeals court ruled late Monday that the Trump administration may deport hundreds of thousands of illegal alienswho previously received temporary protected status for "humanitarian" reasons, in some cases decades past the event that spurred the temporary reprieves. The 2-1 ruling by a panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned an injunction protecting aliens from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan from being deported pending litigation. The Trump administration ended their protections, saying their home countries were now safe for them. The decision affects 300,000 non-citizens here illegally -- and a staggering 200,000 of...

A federal appeals court panel ruled on Monday that the Trump administration can end humanitarian protections for some 300,000 immigrants living in the United States, clearing the way for their potential deportation starting next year. The 9th Circuit Appeals Court's decision affects citizens from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan, many of whom have lived in the U.S. for decades, have U.S.-born children and are considered essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic. At issue is the termination of Temporary Protected Status, a form of humanitarian relief created by Congress and administered by the Department of Homeland Security. TPS...

    by Joe Callen The U.S. Supreme Court has given the Trump administration another gigantic immigration victory. On Thursday, the nation’s highest court ruled 7-2 that the federal government can deport illegal aliens, including those seeking "asylum," quickly and with only limited judicial review. The ruling could "immediately" affect "tens of thousands" of illegals now present in the United States. Every year -- since the Obama Administration added the undefined "credible fear of return" criteria, hundreds of thousands of illegal border crossers have fraudulently claimed asylum status. Nearly all -- an astonishing 98% -- are rejected, but under Obama nearly...

    A group of Senate Democrats on Saturday sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf requesting that the Trump administration to provide COVID-19 testing for migrants before they're deported from the country. The letter was spearheaded by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and signed by 13 additional senators, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

    When it unveiled an unprecedented order last month to swiftly expel virtually all unauthorized migrants from the U.S. southern border, the Trump administration said potentially infected foreigners could spread the coronavirus in the U.S., prompt outbreaks in immigration jails and strain public health resources along border communities. But in a paradoxical twist, Guatemala, the largest source of migration to the U.S.-Mexico border in recent years, fears the U.S. is exporting the virus there through its deportation policy. At least 99 migrants recently deported to Guatemala by the U.S. have tested positive for coronavirus as of Sunday, according to the nation's...

    The Supreme Court is making it harder for noncitizens who are authorized to live permanently in the United States to argue they should be allowed to stay in the country if they've committed crimes. The decision Thursday split the court 5-4 along ideological lines. The decision came in the case of Andre Barton, a Jamaican national and green card holder. In 1996, when he was a teenager, he was present when a friend fired a gun at the home of Barton's ex-girlfriend in Georgia. And in 2007 and 2008, he was convicted of drug possession in the state. His crimes...
