US Supreme Court Delivers Huge Ruling On Punishment Of Illegals

Texas was given a setback when the U.S. Supreme Court ordered state officials to postpone enforcing a new law that was scheduled to take effect later this month and permit the arrest of those who are not authorized to be in the state or the nation.

“Justice Samuel Alito issued the administrative hold, which will block the law from taking effect until March 13. That temporary pause will give the court additional time to review the case but does not necessarily signal which way the court is leaning,” CNN reported Monday after the order was issued, adding that Alito oversees the federal district encompassing Texas.

The injunction was the result of an emergency application filed by the Biden administration with the nation’s highest court by various pro-mass immigration groups, following an appeals court decision that allowed Texas to start enforcing its statute.

CNN further stated, “Senate Bill 4, signed into law by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in December, immediately raised concerns among immigration advocates about increased racial profiling as well as detentions and attempted deportations by state authorities in Texas, where Latinos represent 40% of the population. Last week, a federal judge in Austin, Texas, blocked the state government from implementing the law.”

“If SB 4 is allowed to proceed, it could allow each state to pass its own immigration laws,” Judge David Alan Ezra wrote in a decision that was ultimately rejected by the federal appeals court.

This dispute arises when President Biden traveled to Brownsville, Texas, last week to discuss the tumultuous border that Republicans claim he caused when, on his first day in office, he reversed almost all of previous President Donald Trump’s severe enforcement measures.

Biden was chastised and made fun of by the union that represents the U.S. Border Patrol when he visited a region of Texas last week that sees little activity from illegal migrants.

The leading border security agency in the country was outraged by Biden’s visit, and it seemed that the union was using it as window decoration in an election year when the majority of Americans are increasingly concerned about illegal immigration.

“Board AF1, take nap. Wake up in place called Brownsville,” the group wrote on the X platform in a joking about Biden’s itinerary. “Read large teleprompter message, ‘It’s all Trump’s fault.’ Board AF1, ask who people in green uniforms were, told they ‘strap’ illegal aliens, express horror, take nap. Wake up, call a lid, hit beach, take nap.”

While visiting the border, Biden accused Republicans in Congress of not supporting an immigration reform package that would have given him the power to impose tougher enforcement. He laid responsibility on previous President Trump as well.

“The majority of Democrats and Republicans in both houses support this legislation,” Biden said in Brownsville, “until someone came along and said don’t do that that’ll benefit the incumbent. That’s a hell of a way to do business in America for such a serious problem.”

The fact that the package would continue to admit up to 5,000 illegal immigrants into the nation every day while still giving tens of billions more in aid to war-torn Ukraine is actually why the majority of Republicans opposed it.

Fox News Digital added:

The president faces increasing scrutiny over his handling of the border as the Border Patrol continues to report a record number of migrant encounters.

In December alone, there were more than 300,000 encounters – a record.

The issue also threatens to hurt Biden politically ahead of November’s presidential election.

Trump had previously declared that he would visit the border when Biden’s White House made the announcement. On the same day, Trump and Biden traveled, but Trump went to Eagle Pass, Texas, which is one of the busiest locations for unauthorized entry.

Along with many government officials, law police, and the commander of the Texas National Guard, he took a tour of the area alongside Governor Greg Abbott (R).
