Biden imposing 100-day pause on deportations is ‘purely political’: Don Rosenberg
Don Rosenberg, president of Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime, accuses President Biden of playing politics with his immigration policy.
A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked President Biden’s attempt to put a moratorium on deportations for 100 days.
After Texas sued over the policy, the judge blocked Biden, via a temporary restraining order, from moving forward for 14 days, as reported by Reuters.
Texas’ lawsuit claims that the administration would be violating an agreement it has with the Department of Homeland Security – and would require at least 180 days’ notice, as well as consultation, prior to implementing changes in immigration policy. It is unclear whether those terms are enforceable, but similar agreements were struck with several other states under the former administration.

The moratorium – which took effect on Friday – also does not apply to persons who were not physically present in the U.S. as of Nov. 1, 2020.
The Biden administration was planning to announce further guidance on the issue by Feb. 1.
