Attorney General Ken Paxton keeps running up the victories over the Biden Regime Administrative Amnesty. The Biden Regime started a special Administrative Amnesty for Criminal Aliens, essentially ending deportation of criminal aliens except for a few egregious and public cases, otherwise most criminal aliens are now allowed to remain in the United States.
In this case, Paxton sued the Biden Regime over its failure to arrest and deport criminal aliens whom the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended, requires to be arrested and deported. The decision by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals is in and the Biden Regime has been ordered to enforce the INA. (h/t Author W.R. Flynn)
President Joe Biden’s administration cannot ignore federal law that says authorities must arrest, detain, and remove illegal aliens convicted of certain crimes and/or aliens who are ordered deported, an appeals court has ruled.
Federal law says the attorney general “shall take into custody,” “shall detain,” and “shall remove” illegal aliens convicted of certain crimes and aliens who are ordered deported. But the Biden administration has attempted to prevent the holding and removal of some illegal immigrants convicted of those crimes.
“The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen therefore should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a Biden appointee, said in a memorandum in September 2021 outlining new guidance that narrowed immigration enforcement priorities.
Mayorkas also said that immigration agents should not “rely on the fact of conviction … alone” when deciding to take action against an alien.
That has led to a sharp drop in criminal aliens detained by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a panel of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals said. The memo and others like it has led to a spike in the rescinding of criminal detainers, or orders to local authorities to detain aliens, court documents show. One hundred and seventy aliens had detainers rescinded in Texas between Jan. 20, 2021, and Feb. 15, 2022, with at least 17 failing to comply with their parole conditions and four committing fresh crimes.Biden Administration Cannot Ignore Federal Law, Must Remove Illegal Alien Criminals: Court, By Zachary Stieber, The Epoch Times, July 8, 2022
There will be appeals and that will shake out, but from the decision, arrests and deportations must commence. Undoubtedly, the Biden Regime will slow walk this, but that is only more evidence to be used for impeachment proceedings or arrests under President DeSantis. Let’s see how Tae Johnson reacts. Does he want to go to prison?
This will certainly impact the current Constitutional Crisis on the border with Governor Abbott starting to deport illegal aliens. Things will be interesting this summer.
