Why the Immigration Reform Law Institute is Suing Joe Biden Over His Border Chaos

When the scourge of COVID-19 spread around the world last year, most leaders treated it as the national security threat that it is. Here in the United States, it represented the biggest threat to our way of life since the 9/11 attacks. Our nation adopted something akin to a war footing, a position that is just now starting to change incrementally.
Against this backdrop, the Biden administration decided this was the perfect time to swing America’s doors wide open and absorb masses of people from impoverished countries. Not only is this inexplicable move in defiance of common sense, it puts millions of Americans at risk.
This is one of the reasons my organization, the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI), recently filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern Division of Texas against Joe Biden and a number of federal agencies on behalf of the State of Texas. As we explain in our complaint, President Biden’s border policies are in violation of federal law, and they are causing catastrophic damage to the Texas.
Border Policies
In October of last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued its “Order Suspending the Right To Introduce Certain Persons From Countries Where a Quarantinable Communicable Disease Exists.” It determined that “introduction of aliens, regardless of their country of origin, migrating through Canada and Mexico into the United States creates a serious danger of the introduction of COVID-19 into the United States, and the danger is so increased by the introduction of such aliens that a temporary suspension is necessary to protect the public health.”
Given the wrath of the pandemic, it sounds like a sensible order. Joe Biden disagrees and, by executive fiat, decided that we should follow the opposite course. That, combined with his shockingly reckless call for migrants to “surge the border,” has resulted in a massive humanitarian crisis. Texas, more than most states, is paying dearly for these actions.
