    Biden Admin Suffers 'Massive Defeat' as Federal Judge Strikes Down Attempt to Abandon

    Biden Admin Suffers 'Massive Defeat' as Federal Judge Strikes Down Attempt to Abandon Immigration Enforcement

    By George Upper June 11, 2022 at 1:05pm

    A federal judge in Texas has handed the Biden administration another defeat in its ongoing attempts to liberalize immigration policy.
    In his Friday ruling, Judge Drew Tipton struck down a rule issued in September by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to Immigration and Customs Enforcement that forbid agents from detaining or deporting illegal immigrants unless they had recently entered the U.S. or been identified as a potential threat to public safety or national security.
    Texas and Louisiana had sued to overturn the rule, which they argued violated federal law. Tipton agreed, but stayed his ruling for a week to give the administration time to file an appeal of his decision.

    A spokesperson for DHS told Fox News it was “considering next steps.”
    Tipton reasoned that, while the federal government has “case-by-case discretion” to enforce immigration law regarding individual illegal aliens, it does not have the authority to make broader decisions about enforcing — or not enforcing — laws put in place by Congress regarding entire classes of people.
    Trending:

    Under the Constitution, the executive branch is charged with carrying out and enforcing laws enacted by Congress. Authority is not given the executive branch to deny the will of Congress as codified in legislation.
    The Biden administration’s argument “offers an implausible construction of federal law that flies in the face of the limitations imposed by Congress,” Tipton said.

    Mayorkas made the administration’s intentions clear in an interview this year in which he trumpeted the progress ICE had already made, under the guidance of his memo, in reducing arrests and removals.
    “We have fundamentally changed immigration enforcement in the interior. For the first time ever, our policy explicitly states that a non-citizen’s unlawful presence in the United States will not, by itself, be a basis for the initiation of an enforcement action,” Mayorkas told CBS News in January.
    “This is a profound shift away from the prior administration’s indiscriminate enforcement,” he added.

    The numbers bear that out. Fox reported that in fiscal year 2019, under former President Donald Trump, ICE “arrested 143,099 illegal immigrants and deported 267,258.”
    By comparison, two years later in FY 2021, arrests were cut almost in half under President Joe Biden to 74,082, and deportations fell by nearly 80 percent to 59,011.

    The Biden administration argued, unsuccessfully, that the rule was needed to allow ICE to focus its finite resources on the most problematic cases and potential bad actors.
    Fox noted that the Biden administration has lost numerous immigration-related cases. Courts have blocked the administration’s “proposed 100-day moratorium on deportations,” halted its attempt to end Title 42 and forced the re-implementation of the so-called Migrant Protection Protocols.

    Officials in Louisiana and Texas celebrated the ruling.
    “Judge Tipton confirmed what we have argued all along: law and order must prevail,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said in a statement. “The Biden Administration can no longer allow dangerous and violent criminal aliens to roam free in our communities.”

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton described the decision as a “massive defeat” for the Biden administration.
    “He tried to throw out immigration law, saying DHS didn’t have to detain criminal illegals. The court now says he must,” Paxton tweeted.

    While the Biden administration has seven days to appeal the ruling to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, NPR described its chances of success in that venue as “mixed at best.”

    Federal judge strikes down Biden admin's immigration enforcement guidelines

    Federal Judge Drew Tipton of the Texas Southern District Court, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, issued a ruling Friday striking down the Biden administration's immigration enforcement guidelines, NPR and CNN report.
    In September, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas directed Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to arrest only those undocumented immigrants who crossed the border recently or who posed a threat to public safety or national security, claiming that being in the country illegally "should not alone be the basis" for arrest or removal.
    In his ruling on the lawsuit brought by Texas and Louisiana, Tipton wrote that although "the Executive Branch has case-by-case discretion to abandon immigration enforcement as to a particular individual," the administration's policy "binds … officials in a generalized, prospective manner — all in contravention of Congress's detention mandate."
    Federal immigration law requires that undocumented immigrants who commit crimes be taken into ICE custody after they've been released.

    Federal court again rules against Biden on immigration, says can't release illegals into U.S.

    Court rules decision by Majorkas to release migrants who are supposed to be deported is "arbitrary and capricious, contrary to law."

    A federal judge in Texas has ruled against the Biden administration in a lawsuit brought by Texas and Louisiana over the administration releasing “criminal illegal aliens” into the U.S. instead of deporting them.

    U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a 96-page opinion in favor of Texas and Louisiana vacating a memorandum issued by Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas. The judge said Mayorkas’ policy was “arbitrary and capricious, contrary to law, and failing to observe procedure under the Administrative Procedure Act.” Tipton also denied all other requested relief brought by the administration.

    The ruling comes after law enforcement officers involved in Texas’ Operation Lone Star have made a record number of arrests of violent offenders with cartel and gang connections.

    “I just dealt Biden another massive defeat in fed court,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “He tried to throw out immigration law, saying DHS didn’t have to detain criminal illegals. The court now says he must. I will always hold the line with the Dems and the rule of law.

    “Joe Biden is more focused on abandoning our laws than enforcing them, and it's clear he cares more about his radical-liberal ideology than the lives of hard-working Americans,” Paxtoin added.

    Of the ruling, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said, “A federal judge has just ruled with us that the Biden Administration can no longer refuse to detain criminal illegal immigrants. This is a major win for our national security and the rule of law.”

    Mayorkas first issued an “interim guidance” Jan. 20 changing immigration policy, and again an ICE memorandum on Feb. 18 drastically altered deportation policy, including limiting issuing detainer requests for dangerous criminal aliens. Since then, he’s issued other memorandums over which Paxton, Landry and others have sued. Judges have also ruled against the memorandums arguing they don’t have the legal authority to change law established by Congress.

    In a September 2021 memorandum, Mayorkas said, “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen therefore should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them. We will use our discretion and focus our enforcement resources in a more targeted way. Justice and our country’s well-being require it.”

    Only those who pose a threat to national security, public safety or a threat to border security would be targeted for removal, according to the new guidelines.

    But such individuals aren’t being apprehended, detained or deported, the AGs argue.

    “The Biden Administration is refusing to take custody of criminal aliens despite federal statutes requiring it to do so. Instead, Defendants have issued and implemented unlawful agency memoranda that allow criminal aliens already convicted of felony offenses to roam free in the United States. Such aliens belong in federal custody, as Congress required,” they maintain.

    When state and local authorities incarcerate “an alien already convicted of a felony criminal offense,” the complaint says, they inform U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). ICE is required by federal law to initiate deportation proceedings by sending a detainer request to state and or local law enforcement to hold the individual/s in question until ICE can pick them up. State and local authorities are required to hold them instead of releasing them into the U.S.

    “But since the inauguration, the Biden Administration has rescinded dozens of detainer requests previously issued to” the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, the complaint continues. ICE has also “declined to take custody of dangerous criminal aliens that it had previously sought.”

    The same process exists in Louisiana and other states, but in Louisiana, the federal government also operates federal detention facilities where it holds criminal illegal immigrants pending removal to process their deportation. As a result of Mayorkas’ directives, ICE’s New Orleans Field Office “is not removing individuals subject to mandatory deportation, causing individuals in facilities in Louisiana to be released in local communities in Louisiana,” according to the complaint.

    Not deporting dangerous criminals “is indicative of a broader shift in federal policy that began on the first day of the Biden Administration and has resulted in a ‘crisis on the border,’” the AGs argue.

    Federal law requires ICE “to take custody of many criminal aliens, including those with final orders of removal, those convicted of drug offenses, and those convicted of crimes of moral turpitude.”

    By refusing to take them into custody, the Biden administration is violating the Immigration and Nationality Act, the Administrative Procedure Act, binding agreements DHS negotiated with the states of Texas and Louisiana and is unconstitutional, the AGs argue.

    Tipton agreed.

    While the legal issues in the case are “varied and complicated” he said, the case was ultimately about whether the Biden administration “may require its officials to act in a manner that conflicts with a statutory mandate imposed by Congress.”

    “It may not,” he concluded.

    “The Executive Branch may prioritize its resources. But it must do so within the bounds set by Congress,” Tipton said. “Using the words ‘discretion’ and ‘prioritization,’ the Executive Branch claims the authority to suspend statutory mandates. The law does not sanction this approach.”

    A separate challenge filed by ICE agents and sheriffs over arresting and deporting criminal "illegal aliens" is pending before the courts.

    The Biden administration is expected to appeal.

    DHS said the agency was "currently assessing the court order and considering next steps."

    Use our stadiums. Our tax dollars paid for them! National Guard secures the perimeter. Have a panel of Judges working 24/7, 3 shifts.

    National Guard transports them to ships. Ship back thousands.

    Stadiums have food courts to use, bathrooms and showers. Put cots in the hallways. Get them processed in 48 hours and OFF our soil.

    Send all the males to a separate location to process.

    If our military can transport refugees here, they can damn well fly these illegals back to countries overseas.

    Send the UACs to a separate location where they are processed and handed over to their Embassy or Consulate to transport back home to their authorities. Find their illegal parents who are here and deport them immediately and charge with child endangerment. We are not the world's babysitter!

    Process them, deny them, deport them.

    Fast track the UACs, pregnant, and sick ones back home!

    We have got to put our foot down on criminal trespassing illegal aliens. They are not our responsibility.

    Article 212(f) put a PAUSE on any and all immigration and clean this mess up.

    Article 4, Section 4 to STOP THIS INVASION!
