Biden Admin Drops Plan for ICE Deportation Pause After Legal Defeat; Texas AG Paxton Wins Major Victory Over Biden Admin, Stops Deportation Pause Permanently, and related stories

Biden administration drops plan for ICE deportation pause after legal defeat:
Deportation freeze was a Biden campaign promise
The Biden administration has dropped its effort to impose a 100-day moratorium on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportations after a legal effort from Texas blocked the Biden campaign promise from taking place -- with the administration saying the time for it to go into effect has now passed.
Then-candidate Joe Biden had promised to pause deportations, with very few exceptions, during the 2020 campaign. On Inauguration Day, then-acting Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske signed a memo that included such a pause to go into effect Jan 22.
Texas immediately sued, eventually winning the legal battle when a federal judge placed an indefinite block on the policy.
"The 100-day period during which DHS would have paused the execution of certain final removal orders has now otherwise expired and would no longer be in effect under the terms of the memorandum," a DHS statement said. "DHS does not intend to extend or reinstate a policy requiring a pause on the execution of final orders of removal for any noncitizens." --->READ MORE HERE
Texas AG Paxton wins major victory over Biden administration, stops deportation pause permanently:
After obtaining a temporary restraining order against the Biden administration and ultimately procuring an agreement from Deputy Attorney General of the United States Patrick Sweeten, TexasAttorney General Ken Paxton is celebrating a major victory in support of enforcement of federal immigration laws. The lawsuit was the first of several lawsuits against President Biden’s Administration and has permanently prevented an unconstitutional attempt to pause deportations at the border for 100 days.
Attorney General Paxton sued the Biden Administration just days after the president took office, resulting in the federal district court quickly halting the enactment of the Administration’s illegal memorandum. The court’s order has been in place since late January.
On its first day in office, the Biden Administration cast aside congressionally enacted immigration laws and suspended the removal of illegal aliens whose removal is compelled by those very laws. The move violated the U.S. Constitution, federal immigration and administrative law, and a contractual agreement between Texas and DHS. Paxton issued a letter warning that the Administration’s actions resulted in an abdication of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s obligation to enforce federal immigration law, which would seriously and irreparably harm Texas and its citizens. --->READ MORE HERE
