A federal court in Texas issued an injunction early Wednesday against President Biden’s 100-day deportation pause, saying the Inauguration Day decision was too rash and the new administration has failed to justify why it’s needed.
Judge Drew B. Tipton, a Trump appointee, said the law specifically requires the government to try to quickly deport illegal immigrants in its custody who have been ordered removed. He said the Biden team’s justifications for thwarting that — worries about the coronavirus and plans for a broader review of immigration policy — don’t justify ignoring the law.
“What this preliminary injunction does is bar DHS from unlawfully enacting a blanket 100-day pause which is contrary to law,” he wrote.

He ruled the pause a violation of the Administrative Procedures Act, a law that requires agencies to go through a process before making major policy changes. The same law repeatedly tripped up the Trump administration on immigration matters, too.
