Federal judge rules Biden’s lax deportation policy is illega​:
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas broke the law when he wrote rules limiting which illegal immigrants can be detained or deported, a federal judge ruled Tuesday, slapping an injunction on ICE that will limit its ability to pick and choose whom to target.
Judge Michael J. Newman’s decision is a serious blow to the Biden administration. From its first days in office, the administration has tried to narrow the pool of illegal immigrants in danger of deportation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Judge Newman said Congress was clear in setting out classes of illegal immigrants who it thought should be mandatory targets and Mr. Mayorkas can’t unilaterally change those.
“DHS contends that seemingly mandatory statutes must be read flexibly to permit efficient law enforcement. At bottom, that is what this dispute is about: can the executive displace clear congressional command in the name of resource allocation and enforcement goals? Here, the answer is no,” wrote the judge, a Trump appointee to a federal court in Ohio.
His temporary injunction blocks ICE from delaying deportation or refusing to detain targets based on Mr. Mayorkas’ guidance.

Trump-Appointed Judge Blocks Biden’s ‘Sanctuary Country’ Orders Protecting Illegal Aliens from Deportation:
A district judge, appointed by former President Donald Trump, has blocked President Joe Biden’s so-called “sanctuary country” orders that have successfully protected millions of illegal aliens from arrest and deportation over the last year.
On Tuesday, District Judge Michael J. Newman issued a preliminary injunction against Biden’s orders that prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from arresting and deporting most of the nation’s 11 to 22 million illegal aliens across the United States.
The orders were imposed in September 2021 after the Biden administration was successfully sued by Texas and Louisiana for implementing similar orders at the start of last year. The latest orders dictate that only illegal aliens deemed a “public safety threat” or a “national security threat” can be arrested and deported by ICE agents.
Newman sided with Arizona, Montana, and Ohio — the states that brought the lawsuit — in the case, ruling that the orders require the states to bear the brunt of financial costs to taxpayers associated with protecting illegal aliens.
