President Joe Biden sought to create a “sanctuary country” where millions of ilegal aliens would be protected from arrest and deportation, but he has been shot down by a Trump-appointed Judge.
“District Judge Michael J. Newman issued a preliminary injunction against Biden’s orders that prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from arresting and deporting most of the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens across the United States,” reports Breitbart News.
“The orders were imposed in September 2021 after the Biden administration was successfully sued by Texas and Louisiana for implementing similar orders at the start of last year. The latest orders dictate that only illegal aliens deemed a ‘public safety threat’ or a ‘national security threat’ can be arrested and deported by ICE agents,” reports Breitbart News.
“Newman sided with Arizona, Montana, and Ohio — the states that brought the lawsuit — in the case, ruling that the orders require the states to bear the brunt of financial costs to taxpayers associated with protecting illegal aliens,” reported Breitbart News.
But the States have plausibly shown these costs have accrued, and will continue to do so, even if the priority shift generates some offsetting benefit. This financial impact is a “tangible” one.
In the District of Arizona litigation over the Interim Guidance, for example, Arizona identified noncitizens with criminal convictions who were placed on state supervision after DHS lifted their detainers under the Interim Guidance. A decrease in detention and removal of criminal aliens will invariably lead to similar results in Montana and Ohio.
An aggregate decline in removals will also cause the States to devote more emergency Medicaid and educational resources to noncitizens than they otherwise would have.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich called the preliminary injunction a “tremendous victory.”
“This is a tremendous victory for the rule of law and the safety of our communities,” Brnovich said. “Since assuming office, the Biden administration has undermined our immigration laws and our law enforcement agencies, while empowering dangerous cartels and criminals on both sides of the border. I’m grateful for this ruling and for the partnership of Ohio and Montana as we work to reverse this catastrophic lawlessness.”
