Source Title: US federal judge in Texas calls for suspension of Biden administration’s executive order of “suspending the expulsion of illegal immigrants”
China News Agency, Houston, January 27 – a judge of the federal court of Texas issued a temporary restraining order on January 26, suspending the implementation of a memorandum recently issued by the US Department of homeland security. After US President Biden signed an executive order on the day he took office on January 20, the Department of Homeland Security issued the Memorandum: from January 22, US immigration law enforcement agencies will suspend the expulsion of illegal immigrants for 100 days.
Texas Attorney General Robert Paxton filed a lawsuit on the memo in the Federal District Court on the 22nd, AP reported. Paxton believes that the order to suspend the expulsion of illegal immigrants violates federal law and demands that the memorandum be revoked. On the 26th, judge Tipton of the federal court of Texas made the ruling and said that Biden’s government failed to provide any specific and reasonable reasons for the suspension of deportation;. Tippton said the ruling is valid for 14 days, during which the judge will continue to consider whether to approve the revocation of the memorandum.
This measure is one of the priorities of Biden administration’s immigration policy, which is diametrically opposite to that of former president trump. During Trump’s term of office, anyone who illegally stays in the United States will be listed as a priority for deportation.
In response to the federal court judge’s ruling, the White House said in a statement on the 26th that President Biden will continue to take immediate action to reform the immigration system, so as to ensure the safety of the community while maintaining American values.
According to the Houston Chronicle, conservative officials in Texas worry that the suspension of deportation will cause some illegal immigrants released from prison to stay in the United States, which will bring burden to the state.
“Washington Post” analysis said that although the ruling is only valid for 14 days, but this may mean that the United States Conservative Party Biden Government immigration agenda legal challenges entered a new stage. Texas attorney general Paxton tweeted on social media the same day that Texas was the first state in the United States to sue Biden’s government, and we won;.
According to the media, federal court judge tipston was appointed by trump in June 2020. Tipston’s Texas district court is part of the Fifth Circuit Court, which is considered one of the most conservative courts in the United States.
It is worth mentioning that during Trump’s term of office, a number of executive orders were stopped by judges. The day after trump signed the “injunction”, the executive order was intercepted by the New York federal court judge;. (end)
