A federal court in Texas is reviewing an immigration policy that is a key part of the Biden administration’s platform and has potentially worsened our crisis at the border.
During the Trump administration, an illegal immigrant could be arrested and deported for illegally residing in the country. The Biden administration has implemented a policy that someone’s immigration status alone is not enough to warrant an arrest or deportation.
National Public Radio (NPR) has reported that Texas and Louisiana have filed suit against that policy, and the case is set for trial this week:
“The legal challenge from Texas and Louisiana is set to go to trial this week in Houston. It will be heard by federal Judge Drew Tipton, who was appointed to the bench by former President Donald Trump. Tipton has already tried to block the DHS guidance once before.”
As CAPS previously blogged, this policy is the reason that removals have dropped precipitously under Biden, even though there has been a record number of apprehensions at the border.
In sum, you can break US immigration laws and our government won’t do anything about it.
Just imagine if the Biden administration applied a similar policy to other crimes? Do you think that would make the country safer?
We will watch to see the outcome of this important ruling. Our nation’s border security may depend on it.
