A federal judge extended the temporary suspension of Joe Biden’s 100-day moratorium on deportations.
“The Court may ultimately be persuaded by the Defendants’ arguments, but any harm they might incur between now and then does not outweigh the potential for irreparable harm to Texas,” U.S. District Court Judge Drew Tipton in the Southern District of Texas wrote Tuesday.
The administration “argued that the 100-day pause on removals is necessary to allow” them to look into “important immigration, foreign policy, and humanitarian considerations,” the order stated.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton brought a lawsuit against the Biden administration last month after the president announced a 100-day halt to deportations.
This is big news.
