Trump-Appointed Judge Blocks Biden Administration Deportation Guidance

HeadlineJun 27, 2022

A Trump-appointed federal judge in Texas has struck down a Biden administration rule that prioritized the arrest of undocumented immigrants considered to be a threat to public safety and national security. After Friday’s ruling by Judge Drew Tipton, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it would no longer set priorities for its enforcement actions, leaving some 11 million undocumented immigrants more vulnerable to deportation. The Department of Homeland Security says it will appeal the ruling.
