A temporary restraining order is being issued over the Biden Administration's pause on deportations. A Texas federal judge issued the ruling today citing the Administrative Procedure Act. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued the new administration last week saying the Trump Administration and Texas reached an agreement before Biden was sworn-in requiring consultation before any deportation changes are made. Paxton calls the 14-day restraining order a victory against a "seditious left-wing insurrection."
“The Court’s decision to stop the Biden Administration from casting aside congressionally enacted immigration laws is a much-needed remedy for DHS’s unlawful action. A near-complete suspension of deportations would only serve to endanger Texans and undermine federal law,” said Attorney General Paxton. “Blatantly illegal security threats cannot be allowed to stand, and the rule of law must be upheld. I commend the Court for prioritizing the law and safety of our citizens, and I will continue to defend Texas against the unlawful and unconstitutional actions of President Biden and his Administration.”
