The Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement are among the defendants mentioned in the indictment.
De Santis told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday: “We are in a situation of disaster on the southern border. This is already obvious,” De Santis told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday. It was outlined at the meeting that the measures he took against the White House on the issue were related to immigration.
A lawsuit filed by Florida Republican Attorney General Ashley Moody in the Federal Court of Pensacola, Florida on Tuesday claimed that the immigrants “unlawfully released” by the Biden administration were being “caught and released.” “Arrived or will arrive in Florida”, harming the country’s quasi-sovereign interests and forcing it to bear millions of dollars in expenses. ”
Therefore, to a certain extent, the lawsuit attempts to determine that the release of undocumented immigrants under compulsory detention and the release of undocumented immigrants on parole are illegal for “not making a case-by-case ruling or complying with other restrictions on this power.” The complaint also challenges its description of “obviously unacceptable” undocumented immigrants released to the United States “failed to provide allegations or initiate deportation procedures.”
The Department of Homeland Security did not respond to CNN’s request for comment. The White House transferred CNN to the Department of Justice, which did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.
Jesse Bless, director of federal litigation at the American Immigration Lawyers Association, told CNN on Tuesday, “Anytime a state wants to compete with the federal government on how the federal government enforces federal laws— This is a very difficult thing.”
“There may not be a topic or field more like a federal issue than immigration. Who gets in and out of this country is entirely — it is actually in the constitution — I mean, it is fully entrusted to the federal government,” Bless continued.
“It’s one thing to file a complaint, you just need to claim that the matter is the fact. To win the final judgment, you actually have to provide evidence, which is completely another matter. When I read the complaint, I didn’t see the additional evidence complaint. .”
The scope of the challenge came into focus again last month when the U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that the agency had encountered 212,672 people at the U.S.-Mexico border in July, a two-year high.
