A Texas federal judge recently ordered President Joe Biden that illegal migrant children not be allowed to cross the southern border into the United States.
Judge Mark Pittman’s order prohibits Biden to exempt minor migrants from Title 42. Title 42, an immigration policy that was implemented by Donald Trump allows U.S immigration officials to immediately expel migrants who arrive at the southern border. Title 42 was created in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The federal government has expelled over 1.6 million migrants since March 2020, when the policy was first implemented.
Biden had previously refused to expel unaccompanied minors under Title 42. Instead, he permitted the young migrants to enter the United States, where they would be under the supervision of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. They would then be placed with their sponsors, usually family members, in the United States.
The President has arbitrarily exempted COVID-19-positive unaccompanied alien children from Title 42 procedures. These were intended to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The ramifications of this decision have a singular effect on Texas and other border states. However, although policy decisions can be reviewed by the courts, agency actions that are “arbitrary or capricious” are not. . . or in violation of law” will be ruled out.
Pittman stated that Texas’ “ramifications” include strains on its public schools system and medical resources as well as increased incarceration.
During the fiscal year 2021, a record 122,000 unaccompanied minors crossed the southern border.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton stated that the decision was a win for Texas and children, but a loss for Biden and cartels!
America First Legal, headed by Stephen Miller, a former Trump advisor, was outside counsel for Texas in the lawsuit. Miller described the victory as “a truly historic win.”
It is an honor to have been able to partner with Attorney General Ken Paxton, the State of Texas, and to have received a preliminary injunction against the Biden Administration’s outrageous decision to exclude ALL illegal alien minors traveling to the United States without an adult (UAC), from Title 42. Biden’s decision not to include UAC from Title 42 and instead mass resettle them here in the United States has created the greatest wave of child smuggling ever recorded. This has also drained our schools, hospitals and communities, while creating an unimpeded recruitment pipeline for MS-13. The Biden Administration is ordered to stop their categorical exclusion of unaccompanied alien minors from Title 42 Repatriation. Although this is a historic victory, we still have a long way to go before we can end the Administration’s quest to destroy our sovereignty.
This Friday’s Texas decision is the latest success in stopping Biden’s radical immigration agenda. Texas had previously stopped the enforcement of a 100-day moratorium on deportation last February. A federal judge also ordered Biden to keep Trump’s “Remain In Mexico” policy. This is where asylum seekers return to Mexico to await their hearings.
