President Joe Biden’s staff is looking for a judge to uphold the administration’s “parole pathway” for hundreds of thousands of illegal economic immigrants.
Because of a recent lawsuit filed by Republicans in Texas and 19 other GOP-run states, a Texas court is currently reviewing the parole process.
Because of the judge’s lack of sympathy, the Department of Justice is attempting to move the case to either Austin, Texas or the District of Columbia, where more sympathetic judges are on hand.
Statement on Federal “Motion to Transfer” Form
Although no relevant events occurred within this Division’s jurisdiction, it is in the best interests of all parties involved and the administration of justice for the matter to be transferred elsewhere. For the sake of fairness and the public’s perception of the impartiality of the federal courts, the case should be moved to a Division of this District with more than one judge.
The government has requested that the judge put off ruling on the parole lawsuit until after the move to transfer is resolved.
Biden’s aides have a good reason to make this request. Judge Drew B. Tipton, selected by President Trump, is an expert on the subject and has already ruled against several of President Biden’s border-opening measures.
In accordance with Biden’s supporters, the 20 states chose to bring their lawsuit in that court so that Tipton could rule on their allegation. They might have gotten a more sympathetic judge who is willing to side with the Biden administration if they had brought their lawsuit in a different division.
Although “judge shopping” is commonly used in legal battles over political policy, it has been routinely leveled as an accusation against Texas authorities. Republican leaders are being accused of appointing a judge to hear a complaint against the Trump administration for selectively enforcing laws it does not like.
For the time being, Texas and the other 19 states have only the legal system to turn to. Parole pathway defunding by the Republican-controlled House is unlikely to happen until at least 2025 because of the efforts of Democrats in Congress and the White House.
The administration has been trying to divert the large and unpopular influx of invited illegal immigrants through a variety of quasi-legal, semi-secret channels, including its new “parole pathway,” in defiance of the laws of Congress. The lawsuit filed by 20 states presents a significant challenge to this effort.
The parole pathway offers 360,000 annual parole tickets to would-be migrants in numerous nations with the hope that fewer people will leave their home countries to seek asylum in the United States.
However, many economic migrants from other countries are being allowed covert access to this parole route as well. Without being counted as illegal aliens and without Congress or the public being told, those individuals are being bussed past the border.
On January 26, Texas Governor Greg Abbott told Fox News that the path “is obviously, unambiguously against the law.”
To put it another way, one legal immigrant for every four Americans turning 18 is allowed annually under the current system.
Biden’s aides, notably his pro-immigration border director, who was born in Cuba, are working to increase immigration as much as possible without causing a backlash from moderate voters.
Almost four million migrants were brought into or maintained in the United States in 2022 by border commander Alejandro Mayorkas using various covert methods. Refugees, seasonal workers, tourists looking for work, undocumented asylum seekers, legal immigrants, diversity lottery winners, undocumented foreign criminals, people trying to avoid deportation, sick people, “Unaccompanied Children,” veterans, and family reunification beneficiaries were all included in the tally of migrants.
At a news conference on January 10 in Mexico, President Joe Biden said, “We’re trying to make it simpler for people to get here, opening up the capacity to get here, but not having them go through that godawful [migration] process.”
A case arguing that the government must hold asylum seekers has already been submitted to the Supreme Court for review. Many low-income migrants are able to justify the journey since they can secure employment shortly after arriving, thanks to the catch-and-release policy.
Investors on the coast benefit from Biden’s massive exodus because it drives down salaries and drives up home prices in the United States.
The White House’s fabricated parole pipeline is challenged in court by twenty states.
Under the guise of trying to curb illegal immigration between ports of entry, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS or Department) has announced that it will “parole” up to 360,000 people annually from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela into the United States for two years or longer, with work authorization.
The Department’s authority to grant parole is extremely restricted; Congress has repeatedly weakened it, and it can be exercised “only on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or considerable public benefit.” …. However, the Department’s new “parole” program gives foreign nationals the advantage of obtaining prior authorization to enter the United States from their home countries, despite there being no legal basis for this to occur.
To summarize, the Department’s parole program violates all three of the law’s restrictions. This is not being done on a case-by-case basis, not for immediate humanitarian needs, and not for the greater good of society. In reality, what this amounts to is the establishment of a new visa program that would let hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals who have no legal right enter the United States. Instead of adhering to the strict regulations set by Congress, this one chooses to ignore them.
To bring in hundreds of thousands of immigrants who otherwise had no right to enter the United States, the Department established this unconstitutional program without engaging in notice-and-comment rulemaking under the Administrative Procedure Act.
5. The Department’s abuses of its parole authority could allow hundreds of thousands of additional aliens to enter each of the Plaintiff States’ already crowded territories, causing substantial, irreparable harm to Texas, Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
The federal government has historically pursued an Extraction Migration economic policy. With this colonial-esque approach, Wall Street and the economy benefit from the labor, housing, and spending of people from the outside.
The influx of migrants has effectively pushed down salaries for Americans and driven up rents and housing costs. The influx has also contributed to the increased death rate of low-income Americans and forced many native-born Americans out of employment in various economic sectors.
The political influence of native-born Americans declines as a result of the influx of people from other countries because elites are less likely to care about the problems facing regular people.
According to a study conducted in August 2022 by the liberal National Public Radio, 54% of Americans believe Biden is facilitating an invasion via the southern border (NPR). 76% of Republicans, 46% of independents, and 40% of Democrats made up the 54% “Invasion” majority.
