Biden came in on the ticket that open borders would be the new American immigration plan. One of the first acts while in office was instructing his acting DHS to pause almost all ICE deportations for the next 100 days. Texas and Arizona were the first to raise the alarm.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit against the federal government to ban Biden’s deportation pause. He called the Biden immigration plan “unlawful and perilous.” Paxton said, “Our state defends the largest section of the southern border in the nation. Failure to properly enforce our citizens and law enforcement personnel.”
“DHS itself,” Paxton’s statement read, “has previously acknowledged that such a freeze on deportations will cause concrete injuries to Texas. I am confident that these unlawful and perilous actions cannot stand. The rule of law and security of our citizens must prevail.”
Paxton is correct. Biden’s plan violates the Constitution and federal law. It takes the agreement the Federal government made with the State of Texas regarding the protection of the southern border and guts any protection for Texas. The Biden administration wants to point out that it’s not a universal pause but rather more of a “broad” pause because they are only deporting ‘some’ people.
It’s a laughable narrative. The Biden administration put so many restrictions on the “type” of person allowed to be deported under his administration that it limits it to a person who has engaged in terrorism or espionage or poses a danger to national security.
BUT, there’s a catch.
The HEAD of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has to personally write a letter stating the reasons for which this individual should be deported.
The Biden administration never released what they label terrorism, espionage, or a danger to national security. If there is anything the Democrats taught us over the last four years, our definitions for words are not the same as their definitions.
Also, the idea that the HEAD of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would have to study each individual awaiting deportation and write a letter of recommendation for each case must have come directly from President Biden because this was dumb.
Do you think Biden will be able to achieve open borders in the US?

Biden’s administration – thanks to the original two-week restraining– just deported over 25,000 illegal immigrants. Not only is it not practical, but it’s also not even close to being efficient enough to protect our borders. Fox is reporting that “U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton indefinitely banned enforcement of the January 20 memorandum that would have implemented a 100-day moratorium on most deportations.”
Judge Tipton – who gave Texas its first win with the original two-week restraining order on Biden’s deportation pause – gives Texans something else to celebrate. This indefinite ban on Biden’s immigration plan means that Texas and the Trump administration agreements will stand.
Biden has already canceled funding for the border wall and instructed DHS that since the agency can’t follow Biden’s plan, don’t bother arresting anyone that comes over the border. If they fall in the BROAD category of exceptions under the deportation memo, then you must get your manager’s approval first or let them freely come into the United States.
The relief isn’t perfect, but it’s a start. The next four years will be tough for our country. Biden is failing at every turn to put America first. At this point, I’d be happy if Biden put America 28th, just as long as our well-being was on the table.
