In yet another blow to President Joe Biden’s administration, a federal judge in Florida has ruled against the “catch and release” policy that allows foreign nationals in the country illegally to be released into the US instead of deporting them.
Florida State Attorney General Ashley Moody filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration over the “catch and release” policy, arguing that the program is illegal. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge T. Kent Wetherell for the Northern District of Florida Pensacola Division agreed with Moody.
According to Just The News, Judge Wetherell ruled that “the evidence establishes that Defendants have effectively turned the Southwest Border into a meaningless line in the sand and little more than a speedbump for aliens flooding into the country.” He added that the Biden administration’s policy was akin to posting a flashing “Come In, We’re Open” sign on the southern border, which has led to an unprecedented surge of aliens entering the country.
Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency and introduced several border security measures, saying that “Florida is a law and order state, and we won’t turn a blind eye to the dangers of Biden’s Border Crisis.”
Former Trump White House immigration adviser Stephen Miller suggested that Biden may be committing an “impeachable offense” by resettling large numbers of illegal immigrants in the country, and Tucker Carlson echoed this sentiment, saying that “there is someone who can stop it, and that’s Greg Abbott, who’s the governor of Texas, who commands the Texas National Guard.”
Miller argued that the appropriate constitutional remedy was Article IV, Section 4, which says that the government has the obligation to protect any state in this country against invasion and domestic violence. He added that it provided the constitutional predicate for the Supreme Court to strike down the entire scheme, which is a blatant violation of the constitutional Republican form of government.
“When Joe Biden put his hand on the Bible and swore an oath to take care of the laws we faithfully executed, to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution, and to ensure a Republican form of government to every state, he has violated every single one of those commitments,” Miller said.
This ruling affirms what we have known all along, that President Biden is responsible for the border crisis and his unlawful immigration policies make this country less safe. A federal judge is now ordering Biden to follow the law, and his administration should immediately begin securing the border to protect the American people. It’s time for our elected officials to take action and protect our country’s citizens from the dangers of open borders
