In February of 2021, Biden issued initial guidance that limited the deportation of illegals. Then, following that up in September of 2021 with more substantial guidance, he put serious roadblocks in the path of those trying to get illegal aliens out of the country. As Breitbart described it at the time of the second order:
In February, DHS officials issued initial orders that prevented ICE agents from arresting and deporting criminal illegal aliens unless they had been recently convicted of an aggravated felony or had been identified as a known gang member or terrorist.
On Thursday, new orders were issued by DHS officials to replace the previous sanctuary country orders that are currently being challenged in federal court for freeing criminal illegal aliens into the United States interior.
“The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen, therefore, should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them,” the orders state.
As a result, the fight against illegal immigration took a massive hit. Illegals, knowing that they almost certainly wouldn’t be deported, flooded into the country, with more than 2 million illegals crossing the border in 2021 alone. That, paired with record low deportations, ballooned the illegal immigrant population.
Well, thankfully, there are a few judges out there willing to fight back against Team Biden’s efforts to destroy US immigration law, which requires the stopping and deportation of illegals.
One such judge is District Judge Michael J. Newman, a judge in Dayton, Ohio who just issued an injunction against Biden’s deportation orders, potentially giving immigration services the opportunity to start deporting illegals again.
The Springfield News-Sun, reporting on the preliminary injunction, noted that:
U.S. District Court Judge Michael J. Newman of Southern District of Ohio issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday that bars U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers from following some parts of the “permanent guidance” issued in September 2021 by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. It directed agents to evaluate a criminal noncitizen’s conviction, sentence, and a host of other aggravating and mitigating circumstances to determine whether to pursue detention and removal.
Judge Newman, in his opinion, emphasized the financial costs to the states of requiring them to not deport illegals, saying:
In the District of Arizona litigation over the Interim Guidance, for example, Arizona identified noncitizens with criminal convictions who were placed on state supervision after DHS lifted their detainers under the Interim Guidance. A decrease in detention and removal of criminal aliens will invariably lead to similar results in Montana and Ohio.
An aggregate decline in removals will also cause the States to devote more emergency Medicaid and educational resources to noncitizens than they otherwise would have.
Illegal immigration is a massive financial burden on America. The medical costs incurred by dealing with illegals alone run into the billions of dollars.
By allowing deportations of illegals to resume, Judge Newman is helping states rid themselves of that financial burden and start getting rid of people that shouldn’t even be here in the first place.
