U.S. Judge Blocks Biden Deportation Moratorium While Texas Challenge Is Reviewed

HeadlineJan 27, 2021

In immigration news, a federal judge in Texas has temporarily blocked the Biden administration’s 100-day moratorium on most deportations. U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton ruled to suspend the policy for at least two weeks while a challenge by Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is reviewed. Paxton’s suit argues the moratorium violates immigration law and a legal agreement between Texas and the Trump administration. Judge Tipton was appointed by Trump last year.
