Arizona AG Sues Joe Biden’s DHS Over “Unconscionable” Halt on Deportations
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich sued Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security over an executive order that halts deportations of illegal aliens for 100 days. This is similar to the lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton over the same issue.
In the suit, Brnovich notes that the executive order violates both existing law and the agreement between Arizona and the DHS.
Brnovich also noted the following in a statement:
Halting deportations for 100 days raises serious safety concerns for Arizona communities. Not only could the plan release individuals charged with or convicted of crimes into Arizona communities, but law enforcement officials have told the AGO they are concerned whether those being released are being tested for COVID-19. There are serious concerns that DHS’ new policy will further stress hospitals and social services at the local and county level. “It is unconscionable for DHS to release potentially dangerous detainees into our state, especially when no efforts are made to coordinate with applicable courts and probation departments. I am asking the court to enforce the law.”
“These new executive actions have restarted the mass flow of migrants to our border and will soon have a significant impact on the resources of local governments,” said Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot. “Under this moratorium on deportations, hundreds, and soon to be thousands, of migrants will potentially be turned loose in Arizona as well as other Border communities without any means of testing for communicable diseases including COVID-19. Healthcare systems in many smaller communities are already operating at near-full capacity and potentially overwhelming them runs contrary to the COVID-19 mitigation plan we were promised.”
A lot of Americans are paying a big price for Joe Biden’s open border policies. If you’re some fatcat running a criminal enterprise that relies on illegal alien labor, more illegal aliens may be good for you, but huge numbers of Americans are suffering so you people like that can make a few extra bucks. Illegal aliens are bad for America and yes, as this suit notes, giving them a pass violates the laws of the United States. Eventually, this issue is going to get settled in the Supreme Court and hopefully, unlike Joe Biden, they will treat the law of the land as if it means something.
