“It’s really a straightforward lawsuit,” Brnovich told KTAR News 92.3 FM. “We basically sued the Department of Homeland Security alleging that their new policy halting deportations is illegal and it’s also contrary to an MOU [memorandum of understanding] that we have with Homeland Security.”
Similar to Texas, Arizona bases part of its argument on an agreement reached by the Trump administration between DHS and other states and localities in the final weeks of the outgoing president’s administration. The deal states the department won’t make changes to immigration enforcement without first consulting states and allowing them to comment.
The Biden administration has pushed back against the agreement in court filings, saying that it is unenforceable because “an outgoing administration cannot contract away that power for an incoming administration.”
But the Supreme Court already set a precedence when they upheld Obama’s EO on DACA. Even though that was a illegal EO, because the President does not make laws nor does he have the power to change laws. That power lays with the Congress. The Supreme Court in my opinion screwed up that decision. Now Biden should have to live with it.
“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,” Brnovich said in a statement.
The attorney general added on Twitter that while he backs the need for “comprehensive immigration reform,” he doesn’t believe it can be achieved through “unsafe and untenable executive orders.”
Now it seems, the Biden administration wants to take a new approach to the immigration problem. They want to give amnesty to all the illegals in the United States. As some estimate that to be anywhere from 10 to 30 million illegals. This will only encourage more to come across the border in the interim.
I believe you would find a majority of Americans want legal immigration. Even a faster way to the DACA people. But we have gone through the amnesty charade before with Reagan. We were promised that the border would be secured and it wasn’t.
The states need to push back on the Biden admin. and if it come down to it. Refuse to enforce his EO’s. It’s the states on the border that are first affected by the waves of illegals that cross the border. Maybe if we put them on buses and sent the illegals to D.C. and dropped them off they may look at it differently.
I get why people want to come here. But it’s not like it was 50 or 75 years ago. Back then people came here to become Americans. Now they just come here for a handout it seems.
America is spending it’s way into a very bad place. We are printing money our collective asses can’t cover. Adding 10’s of millions of illegal migrants to that is not looking out for the people that our representatives swore to do.
