Texas, Friday, filed a lawsuit against the administration of US President Joe Biden, over a memorandum providing for a freeze on deportations of illegal aliens.
“The Biden administration repealed the immigration laws enacted by Congress, on its first day in office, and suspended the deportation of illegal aliens who were deported under those same laws. In doing so, it ignored basic constitutional principles and violated its pledge,” read a statement by a state federal district court. To cooperate with the state of Texas to address immigration enforcement concerns. “
The court added, “This unlawful revocation will harm Texas with an immediate and irreparable state, if the law is not enforced,” according to the letter of the lawsuit.
The US Secretary of Homeland Security, David Pecosk, issued a memo on January 20 that “ordered an immediate moratorium on the deportation of any non-citizen subject to deportation (except as noted below) for a period of 100 days.” Exceptions to the order include illegal aliens who have participated in, or are suspected of, participating in terrorism or espionage.
This is the first major lawsuit that challenges the policies of the new US president, Joe Biden, just two days after his inauguration as the 46th president of the United States, and it is a possible indication of what will come from other states led by Republicans.
