Judge Halts Biden Plan for Criminal Aliens

(TheRedWire.com) – On Tuesday, February 23, a US federal judge struck another blow to the Biden administration’s plan to pause deportations for 100 days. At Texas’s request, US District Judge Drew Tipton issued a preliminary injunction against the Department of Homeland Security‚Äôs deportation pause. The Lone Star State argued it had an agreement with the federal government to remove illegal aliens from the state. Texas officials said the Biden administration violated the agreement created under the Trump administration.

Judge Tipton concurred with Texas and added that the state would incur a financial burden if required to detain illegal immigrants and provide public education for unaccompanied minors. Tipton further said that the pause would allow a significant number of “criminal aliens” to freely move about, adding even more financial burdens to the state.

The judge’s ruling blocks the deportation pause until the case is resolved or a higher court decision overturns his ruling.
