Federal judge blocks Biden administration’s deportation moratorium

A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked an attempt by President Joe Biden to halt the deportation of many immigrants for a 100-day period.

During his campaign, Biden promised he would make immigration reform a priority and put a stop to deportations for 100 days.

The Biden administration announced the moratorium on the first day in office.

Last week, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit against the federal government over the 100-day pause, claiming that the administration would be violating an agreement it has with the Department of Homeland Security, requiring the department to provide notice and allow time for review before making immigration policy changes.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said the state would face irreparable harm if the deportation moratorium went into effect. Moreover, Paxton said it would increase education and healthcare costs as more immigrants remained in Texas illegally.

U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a temporary restraining order, blocking Biden from moving forward with the policy for 14 days.

“The January 20 Memorandum not only fails to consider potential policies more limited in scope and time, but it also fails to provide any concrete, reasonable justification for a 100-day pause on deportations,” Judge Tipton said in the ruling.

Paxton praised the ruling, saying a deportation moratorium would “endanger Texans and undermine federal law.”

The Biden administration is expected to appeal the ruling.

“We’re confident that as the case proceeds, it will be clear that this measure was wholly appropriate in ordering a temporary pause to allow the agency to carefully review its policies, procedures, and enforcement priorities – while allowing for a greater focus on threats to public safety and national security,” a White House spokesman said.

“President Biden remains committed to taking immediate action to reform our immigration system to ensure it’s upholding American values while keeping our communities safe.”

Migrants refuse to go to Brooklyn cruise terminal shelter, return to Manhattan hotel

It’s the details bleeding heart liberals fail to think about. Take New York City as a perfect example where the liberal city cannot welcome hundreds of thousands of migrants with open arms as it says the rest of the country should do.

Last week saracarter.com reported on how the Big Apple was turning a Brooklyn Cruise ship terminal into shelter for migrant families flooding into the city. That plan has already backfired.

More than 50 migrants camped outside the Watson Hotel in Manhattan in protest against the cruise terminal. On Sunday night over a dozen police officers responded to the hotel to provide crowd control.

One activist told the New York Post that the migrants feel the shelter is “not livable” after several migrants went to the Terminal shelter over the weekend but promptly returned to the hotel.

The migrants preferred to sleep outside the hotel saying that the shelter had no heat, privacy or blankets.

The migrants hung a banner demanding permanent free housing and to “cancel rent.”

A spokesperson for Mayor Eric Adams said the city continues to “surpass our moral obligations” in caring for the influx of migrants.

“More than 42,000 asylum seekers have arrived in New York City since last spring and we continue to surpass our moral obligations as we provide asylum seekers with shelter, food, health care, education, and a host of other services,” spokesperson Fabien Levy told the New York Post.

“The facilities at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will provide the same services as every other humanitarian relief center in the city, and the scheduled relocations to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal this weekend took place as planned,” Levy added. “We remain in serious need of support from both our state and federal governments.”
