day deportation:

    HOUSTON, TEXAS - A federal judge late Tuesday indefinitely banned President Joe Biden's administration from enforcing a 100-day moratorium on most deportations.   U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a preliminary injunction sought by Texas, which argued the moratorium violated federal law and risked imposing additional costs on the state. Biden proposed the 100-day pause on deportations during his campaign as part of a larger review of immigration enforcement and an attempt to reverse the priorities of former President Donald Trump. Biden has proposed a sweeping immigration bill that would allow the legalization of an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally. He also has instituted other guidelines on whom immigration and border agents should target for enforcement.   Tipton, a Trump appointee, initially ruled on January 26 the moratorium violated federal law on administrative procedure and the U.S. failed to show why a deportation pause was justified....

    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. ICE OFFICERS WILL NEED PREAPPROVAL BEFORE ARRESTING SOME ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS UNDER NEW RULES 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 a move. Biden had campaigned on the 100-day pause as part of a sweeping immigration agenda that includes a halt on border wall construction, an end to the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) and a pathway to citizenship for millions of...

    A federal judge extended the temporary suspension of President Biden’s 100-day moratorium on deportations. "The Court may ultimately be persuaded by the Defendants’ arguments, but any harm they might incur between now and then does not outweigh the potential for irreparable harm to Texas,'' U.S. District Court Judge Drew Tipton in the Southern District of Texas wrote Tuesday. The administration "argued that the 100-day pause on removals is necessary to allow" them to look into "important immigration, foreign policy, and humanitarian considerations," the order stated. Tipton extended the suspension of the Biden administration's deportation moratorium for 14 days, until Feb. 23. He also cited that there would be “irreparable harm” to Texas if he did not grant the extension. The move comes after he temporarily halted Biden's deportation freeze on Jan. 26. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton brought a lawsuit against the Biden administration last month after...
    A federal judge in Texas extended the suspension of the 100-day moratorium on deportations of President Joe Biden until February 23. United States District Court Judge Drew Tipton in the Southern District of Texas ruled Tuesday that the federal government cannot make changes to immigration law enforcement without consulting Texas. As a result, it extended the temporary restraining order for another 14 days, stating that the state of Texas would face more damage than the federal government if the extension was not granted. ”The irreparable damage that Texas would suffer if an extension of the [temporary restraining order] it is not granted before the consideration of your request for a preliminary injunction is more substantial than any harm suffered by the defendants, « Tipton wrote in his ruling, adding that his ruling will give the parties more time to » provide a more complete record « to assist the court in » adjudicating Texas’...
    A federal judge in Texas extended the suspension of President Biden’s 100-day moratorium on deportation through Feb. 23. U.S. District Court Judge Drew Tipton in the Southern District of Texas extended his suspension of the White House’s deportation moratorium for 14 days, which the judge says will give parties more time to "provide for a more fulsome record" to assist the court in "adjudicating Texas’s motion for a Preliminary Injunction." BIDEN PREPARES RULES TO LIMIT ICE ARRESTS, DEPORTATIONS The judge also cites "the irreparable harm that would accrue to Texas if an extension" was not granted. The order did state, though, that the Biden administration "argued that the 100-day pause on removals is necessary to allow" them to take account "important immigration, foreign policy, and humanitarian considerations." "The Court may ultimately be persuaded by the Defendants’ arguments, but any harm they might incur between now and then does not outweigh...
    An ICE deportation flight prepares to take off last year A deportation flight carrying Black immigrants, many of them asylum-seekers, back to danger is scheduled to leave Louisiana on Wednesday, The Guardian reports. While President Joe Biden’s 100-day moratorium on most deportations was halted for now due to a window-shopped judge in Texas, ICE has discretion to not deport someone. Additionally, Biden’s separate order rescinding the previous administration’s deportation priorities wasn’t affected by the ruling. Instead, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a rogue agency that’s intent on continuing to carry out its racist and abusive agenda, presidential orders be damned, with advocates saying that agents are rushing the deportation of Black immigrants in particular. They note that ICE carried out a deportation flight from San Antonio to Haiti on Feb. 1, the first day of Black History Month. “On this first day of Black History Month, as the nation pays tribute to the generations of...
    A Texas judge appointed by former President Donald Trump recently granted a temporary restraining order (TRO) against President Joe Biden’s 100-day moratorium on deportations. The decision concludes that states bear a high burden when it comes to enforcement failures in federal immigration policy.
    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton joined "Fox News Primetime" Wednesday to discuss a federal judge's decision to order a temporary hold on President Biden's 100-day deportation freeze. United States District Judge Drew Tipton's decision comes on the heels of a lawsuit brought by Paxton last week.  "We brought this lawsuit for a couple of reasons," Paxton told host Maria Bartiromo. "One, we had an agreement, [with] Texas and Homeland Security, that they wouldn't make any major shifts in immigration policy without giving us sufficient notice to adjust. Second, federal law specifically requires that deportations take place if people are here illegally, and this president has decided to ignore what's been passed by Congress ... which we then think is a violation of the U.S. Constitution."The moratorium set forth by Judge Tipton will last a total of 14 days but Paxton is confident that the ruling will open the eyes of other attorneys general across the nation.

    The Biden administration's attempt to put a 100-day pause on deportations hit a wall when a federal court granted a temporary restraining order in a lawsuit brought by the state of Texas. U.S. District Court Judge Drew B. Tipton stated in a Tuesday order that the directive from acting Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske that halted removing those who already had final orders of removal against them appeared to run afoul of the Administrative Procedure Act, which governs how federal agencies conduct rulemaking. The same law was used to block a number of Trump administration actions as well. CHAD WOLF: BIDEN IMMIGRATION ACTION 'ABSOLUTELY' GOES AGAINST THE LAW "The Court finds that, by ordering a 100-day pause on all removals of aliens already subject to a final order of removal, it appears that the January 20 Memorandum is clearly not in accordance with, or is in excess of, the authority accorded...

    U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) Tuesday that was sought by Texas to prevent President Joe Biden from enforcing a 100-day deportation ban. Texas sued the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Friday after the agency issued a memo that ordered immigration agencies to stop most deportations. The order barred any deportations except when the person was suspected of terrorism or espionage, those who were not in the country before Nov. 1, those who agree to deportation, and those who the Acting Director of ICE determines should be removed. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton argued the moratorium violated the Constitution, federal immigration and administrative law and a “mutually beneficial agreement” between the lone star state and the DHS, which requires the DHS to give it 180 days’ notice of any proposed action, according to the suit.

    A U.S. District Court judge temporarily halted President Biden’s 100-day freeze on deportations. “In this case, Texas has presented evidence it would suffer injuries for various reasons if an injunction is not entered,” Judge Drew Tipton wrote in his decision. “First, Texas demonstrates that it pays millions of dollars annually to provide social services and uncompensated healthcare expenses and other state-provided benefits to illegal aliens such as the Emergency Medicaid program, the Family Violence Program, and the Texas Children’s Health Insurance Program.” “Accordingly, the Court finds that, under the circumstances here, Defendants must be enjoined from executing the January 20 Memorandum’s 100-day pause on the removal of aliens in every place Defendants would have jurisdiction to implement it,” the decision continued. Biden made freezing former President Donald Trump’s deportation policies one of this first moves as president, arguing that the 100-day freeze on deportations was necessary for the new administration...

    A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily halted the Biden administration's 100-day moratorium on certain deportations of immigrants already in the U.S. in an early legal battle over the President Joe Biden's immigration policy. U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton of the Southern District of Texas agreed to pause the policy for 14 days while he considered a lawsuit filed by Texas' Republican attorney general, who argued in a complaint on Friday that the deportation freeze violated a legal agreement the state brokered with the Trump administration before Mr. Biden took office. The moratorium, one of Mr. Biden's campaign promises, shielded most immigrants facing deportation from being removed from the U.S., as long as they entered the country before November 1, 2020. It does not apply to those who pose a national security risk or are suspected of terrorism or espionage. Immigrants could also agree to voluntarily leave the country. On...

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued President Biden's administration after the Democrat instituted a 100-day moratorium on deportations. Biden's cohort violated an agreement that Texas, along with other states, had with the Department of Homeland Security before former President Donald Trump departed the Oval Office on Wednesday, Paxton alleged. The agreement, which was made shortly before Biden's inauguration, mandated that DHS consult with states and local jurisdictions before sweeping immigration bills would be enacted. "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," a complaint read. "In doing so, it ignored basic constitutional principles and violated its written pledge to work cooperatively with the State of Texas to address shared immigration enforcement concerns." DHS on Wednesday halted deportations for 100 days, except if the individuals in...
    Sen. Marco Rubio objected on Friday to the Biden administration's decision to pause nearly all deportations. "It is deeply troubling that one of the first actions taken by the Biden Administration could undermine the safety and security of all Americans, including immigrants here lawfully," Rubio wrote in a letter to acting DHS Secretary David Pekoske. "I am concerned that such directives will prevent the removal of illegal immigrants with existing removal orders, including those with serious criminal records and convicted of violent crimes such as rape, sexual assault, and other aggravated felonies." Rubio, who was a member of the Gang of Eight senators who in 2013 tried to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill, asked Pekoske for immediate clarification on the instruction to federal law enforcement on Wednesday. Pekoske's memo to agency officials at U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services...
    Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Friday called for the Biden administration to clarify the scope of its 100-day moratorium on deportations and other immigration enforcement measures, amid fears that the radical move would allow violent criminals to remain in the U.S. "I am concerned that such directives will prevent the removal of illegal immigrants with existing removal orders, including those with serious criminal records and convicted of violent crimes such as rape, sexual assault and other aggravated felonies," Rubio said in a letter to acting Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske.

    President Joe Biden. President Joe Biden on his first day in office issued a historic, far-reaching slate of orders rescinding some of his predecessor’s most horrific anti-immigrant actions, including the discriminatory Muslim ban and halting construction on the border wall Mexico never did end up paying for, as well as putting into place actions championed by immigrant rights advocates during the 2020 presidential election, including a 100-day moratorium on many deportations. To put it simply, for immigrant families and advocates deluged by intentionally cruel and racist policies during the past four years, Day One was a big fucking deal. Let’s dig into yesterday’s actions. MUSLIM BAN Fulfilling a Day One promise, President Biden rescinded the discriminatory Muslim ban and a subsequent expansion that further blocked people from a number of African nations, calling the policies in “a stain on our national conscience and are inconsistent with our long history of welcoming people of all faiths and no...
    A woman from El Salvador watches as President Joe Biden takes the oath of office.Kathy Willens/AP Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.On Tuesday night, the acting Department of Homeland Security secretary David Pekoske signed a memorandum implementing a 100-day moratorium on certain deportations starting January 22. The measure was announced as part of an agency-wide directive to review policies and practices—including those regarding detention and cooperation with local and state law enforcement—and ensure “a fair and effective immigration enforcement system” based on “sensible priorities” and limited resources. The halt in deportations applies to all immigrants with orders of removal as long as they were in the United States before November 1, 2020, don’t present a national security or terrorism threat, and are not required to be deported by the law. The memo also...
    (CNN)In a last-ditch effort days before they could face deportation, children in federal custody are asking President Donald Trump, President-elect Joe Biden and Congress for help."We thought that the United States had a history of respecting the law and the wellbeing of children. In our experience, the government has not only subjected us to unfair and illegal processes, but it has also tortured us by keeping us detained for so long," two children held at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement family detention facility in south Texas wrote. "We only ask for our rights to ask for asylum to be respected and for the opportunity to be safe with our mothers."The two girls who penned the letter are 14 and 15 and asked to remain anonymous to protect their families' safety, according to advocates representing them. The letter, they write, is written on behalf of 28 children and their families who...
