Texas Attorney General Threatens to Sue Joe Biden Administration Over illegal Deportation Freeze

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton threatened on Thursday to sue the U.S. Department of Homeland Security after it announced a temporary pause on deportations, which many call illegal and abuse of power.

Newly inaugurated President Joe Biden signed executive orders on Wednesday reforming some immigration policies enacted by the administration of former President Donald Trump. Paxton called the DHS’s decision illegal in a Thursday letter to Pekoske.

“This complete abdication of the Department of Homeland Security’s (‘DHS’) obligation to enforce federal immigration law is unlawful and will seriously and irreparably harm the State of Texas and its citizens,” Paxton wrote.

“Border states like Texas pay a particularly high price when the federal government fails to faithfully execute our country’s immigration laws,” Paxton added. “Your attempted halt on almost all deportations would increase the cost to Texas caused by illegal immigration.”

The DHS hiatus on immigration does not apply to all undocumented immigrants. If a noncitizen has been determined to be a threat to the U.S. or has voluntarily waived their rights to remain in the U.S., they could still be deported. Individuals that were not present in the U.S. before November 1, 2020 are also still subject to being removed from the country.

In the letter, Paxton said that the DHS should have consulted with Texas before issuing the memo, alleging that the freeze violates an agreement in which Texas agreed to assist the DHS with enforcing immigration laws.

Paxton also posited that the temporary halt on deportations would give the Biden administration the leeway to “grant blanket amnesty” to many undocumented immigrants “with the stroke of a pen and without congressional approval.”
