(AbsoluteNews.com) – When President Joe Biden took office, he made a number of changes to immigration enforcement in the country. One of the changes he and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas implemented was a priority system for deportations. A federal judge recently blocked the policy, dealing a major blow to the administration.
On March 22, US District Court Judge Michael J. Newman, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, issued a preliminary injunction against parts of the administration’s policy that limited deportations. The judge agreed with Arizona, Ohio, and Montana officials who sued the executive branch to reverse the policy. The judge told the administration it had to exempt some of the migrants from the policy including those with 90-day deportation orders and those with criminal violations.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) celebrated the ruling, saying his office has been at the forefront of the “fights for the rule of law” during the Biden administration.
VICTORY: A federal judge just blocked the lawless Biden Administration policy that halted nearly all deportations after our office challenged this guidance.

The Biden administration has put some deportations on the back burner as it allegedly targeted immigrants who posed a threat to their communities. The Washington Post reported that some criminals were not being arrested and deportations in some areas reached the lowest levels in decades.
Now the administration’s hands are tied and ICE will finally be able to do its job.
