Judge Indefinitely Blocks Moratorium on Deportations

Judge indefinitely extends restriction on Biden's moratorium on deportations

Biden’s proposal to temporarily suspend deportations

Regarding immigration, both President Joe Biden and his team have always emphasized the need to improve the immigration system, lift restrictions implemented by the previous administration, and offer assistance to the most vulnerable immigrant populations in times of global crisis.

To give his administration time to review current protocols and keep up with Trump’s immigration policies, President Biden proposed freezing removal orders for certain immigrants for 100 days. Two days after the president took office, the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) published a memorandum, formalizing Biden’s moratorium on deportations.

Federal judge rules in favor of Texas Attorney General

Biden’s moratorium on deportations unleashed a gigantic social controversy and generated different reactions among the local population. In fact, his administration has received both praise and criticism regarding the way it is handling the immigration sector.

However, the deportation case is already in the middle of a legal process as the Texas Attorney General filed a lawsuit against Biden’s 100-day moratorium on deportations on the same day that DHS published the memorandum making it official.

In the legal complaint, the Attorney General stated that pausing deportations could have extremely negative repercussions for border states like Texas and filed a motion for a TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) on moratorium on deportations.

A federal judge ruled in favor of the Texas Attorney General and temporarily blocked Biden’s moratorium on deportations through a TRO, initially for 14 days, stating that pausing removal orders is against local immigration law and could affect border territory.
