Immigration Enforcement Under the Biden Administration: Testing, Testing


David Rubenstein for Lawfare analyzes the lawsuit, Texas v. United States, challenging President Biden's 100 day moratorium on removals:

"Litigation challenging the Biden administration’s immigration agenda is already underway. The inaugural test case—Texas v. United States—may have far-reaching implications for executive power, judicial power, federalism and administrative law. On Jan. 26, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas issued a nationwide temporary restraining order (TRO) to block President Biden’s “100-day pause” on deportations, which will maintain the `status quo as it existed' on inauguration day. On Feb. 9, the district court granted Texas’s request for a 14-day extension of the TRO, citing `good cause' for the extension and the state’s `irreparable harm' if the moratorium went into effect.  The TRO is now set to expire on Feb. 23."
