Judge Issues Order Blocking Texas Anti-Illegal Immigration Law

On February 29, 2024, a federal judge blocked a new Texas law that grants law enforcement vast powers to arrest illegal aliens entering the United States. 

This order is a win for the Biden regime which has locked horns with the state government of Governor Greg Abbott. 

US District Judge David Ezra’s preliminary injunction halted a law that was set to go into effect on March 5. 

The ruling rejected Texas’ immigration enforcement venture on multiple fronts, throwing shade at Republicans’ allegations about an ongoing “invasion” taking place at the southern border owing to record levels of border crossings by illegal aliens. 

Furthermore, Ezra stated that the law infringes on the Constitution’s supremacy clause, locks horns with federal immigration law, and could fray US foreign relations and treaty obligations with Mexico. 

This is the second time in 6 months that Ezra has halted one of Abbott’s border hawkish measures, with him also ruling against a floating barrier Texas built in the Rio Grande.

Ezra ruled that letting Texas to “permanently supersede federal directives” owing to a so-called invasion would “amount to nullification of federal law and authority — a notion that is antithetical to the Constitution and has been unequivocally rejected by federal courts since the Civil War.”

In a statement where he promised to appeal this order, Abbott blamed the migration deluge on the Biden regime and declared “we will not back down in our fight to protect our state — and our nation.”

“Texas has the right to defend itself because of President Biden’s ongoing failure to fulfill his duty to protect our state from the invasion at our southern border,” Abbot wrote, highlighting that the case will eventually end up before the Supreme Court. 

The judiciary system is clearly taking the side of the mass migration boosters. What Texas is doing is merely a rational response to a ruling class that has grown negligent on the issue. 

Red states will have to assume more power on immigration enforcement questions and subsequently ignore federal court rulings that maintain open borders.
