Joe Biden created a huge crisis at the southern border.
Now someone stepped in and said enough.
Joe Biden suffered a massive legal defeat that will have you grinning from ear-to-ear.
As Great American Daily reports:
The first thing Joe Biden did upon taking office was open the border by rolling back Donald Trump’s successful immigration policies.
Biden signed an executive order reinstating the dangerous catch-and-release policy that President Trump eliminated.
As usual, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis led the red state pushback against Joe Biden’s attempts to impose a socialist agenda on America.
Attorney General Ashley Moody filed suit on behalf of the DeSantis administration back in September 2021 arguing Biden’s order violated U.S. code 1225 which stated that the government must detain individuals crossing into the country illegally or making their way to a port of entry.
The government can also set that person free when the state rules they can legally enter the country or once a judge grants their asylum claim.
Under the law the only exception in the ability to grant parole is on a case-by-case basis for humanitarian reasons.
Under Joe Biden’s order the government mass released illegal aliens into the country — some of whom made their way to Florida — without going through a case-by-case process to determine if there was a humanitarian reason to release the illegal aliens.
Thankfully DeSantis and Attorney General Moody won the suit as Federal Judge T. Kent Wetherell ruled in their favor and issued a scathing opinion blasting Joe Biden for trashing American sovereignty.
Judge Wetherell wrote Biden’s order was “little more than a speedbump for aliens flooding into the country by prioritizing ‘alternatives to detention’ over actual detention and by releasing more than a million aliens into the country—on ‘parole’ or pursuant to the exercise of ‘prosecutorial discretion’ under a wholly inapplicable statute—without even initiating removal proceedings.”
Judge Wetherell slammed Biden for essentially opening the door to the country, rolling out a welcome mat and sending any illegal alien who wished to come to America an engraved invitation to cross the border and get set free to live in the country.
“Collectively, these actions were akin to posting a flashing ‘Come In, We’re Open’ sign on the southern border,” Judge Wetherell added. “The unprecedented ‘surge’ of aliens that started arriving at the Southwest Border almost immediately after President Biden took office and that has continued unabated over the past two years was a predictable consequence of these actions.”
Attorney General Moody took a well-deserved victory lap after the judge’s ruling.
“Today’s ruling affirms what we have known all along, President Biden is responsible for the border crisis and his unlawful immigration policies make this country less safe,” Attorney General Moody declared. “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.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to rise in the polls as a 2024 prospect because on issues such as COVID, standing up to the woke mob and fighting Joe Biden’s open borders agenda it is DeSantis pointing the way for conservatives to push back and win.
