On January 20, 2021, Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske sent a memorandum to the leadership of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and Citizenship and Immigration Service (CIS). The memorandum instructed the agencies to ignore federal law by stopping all deportations and releasing detained illegal aliens into the general public. This would also cause local law enforcement agencies across the country to release detained illegal criminally charged aliens.
On January 26, 2021, United States District Judge Drew Tipton, a Trump appointee, granted a temporary restraining order sought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, saying the state had demonstrated a likelihood of facing immediate harm from Biden’s pause. The court order will be in effect for 14 days while Judge Tipton considered a broader motion by the state for a preliminary injunction.
Florida Family Association sent out an email alert on January 27, 2021 titled: Federal judge blocks Biden’s order to stop deporting illegal criminal aliens. The email encouraged subscribers to send emails that expressed appreciation for his ruling and encouraged him to extend the restraining order.
On February 8, 2021, Judge Tipton extended the TRO until February 23, 2021 to allow both parties time to more fully prepare and submit their arguments. Florida Family Association sent out another email alert that encouraged subscribers to send emails that expressed appreciation for his ruling and encouraged him to extend the restraining order.
On February 23, 2021, Judge Tipton extended his order restraining the Biden administration from allowing illegal criminal aliens to walk free. The conclusion to his 105 page order states:
