Biden’s policy to free illegal migrants without court dates suffers another blow as judge extends lockdown

A federal judge has imposed a preliminary injunction on the Biden administration’s ‘conditional release with conditions’ policy – which has seen illegal migrants released inside the US without a court date in a bid to reduce overcrowding at Border Patrol facilities.

Judge T. Kent Wetherell had imposed a temporary two-week restraining order on the “conditional parole” policy, after accepting arguments from the state of Florida that the policy – outlined in a 10 May – was materially identical to a “conditional release”. + ATD” policy he had blocked in March.

The two-week restraining order, which the White House called “sabotage,” came hours before the end of the Title 42 public health order and gave the court time to weigh arguments as to whether a longer-term preliminary injunction could be imposed.

Wetherell concluded, in an order on Tuesday, that “Florida is entitled to a preliminary injunction prohibiting DHS from ‘conditional release’ of aliens in the country under the Conditional Parole Policy.”

He said the order was in the public interest because it “would promote respect for the rule of law by preventing DHS from achieving what amounts to an end circumventing this Court’s decision in Florida by the ‘adopting a policy functionally identical to parole’. + ATD disabled in this case.

The Biden administration had said in a Monday filing that it released more than 6,000 migrants inside on Thursday. However, he strongly denied allegations that he was engaged in the “mass release” of migrants.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said in a statement that the case “continues to prove what Florida has always maintained, that Biden deliberately and intentionally destroyed our public safety immigration structures before the expiry of the title 42, and now the federal government allows the crush of immigrants who try to enter the country illegally to cross our border.

“I am grateful that this judge is taking swift action to stop the federal government from violating immigration law and mass releasing illegal immigrants back into the country,” she said.
