Federal Judge Extends Restraining Order on Deportations

The temporary order is an nationwide injunction against the president’s memo pausing deportations.

Southern Texas U.S. District Court Judge Drew Tipton has extended the temporary restraining order for 14 days that was issued in response to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s legal challenge of President Biden’s pause on deportations.

On his first day in office, the president had issued an order to pause for 100 days of “removals for certain noncitizens ordered deported to ensure we have a fair and effective immigration enforcement system focused on protecting national security, border security, and public safety.”

AG Paxton has argued the president’s order violates ”basic constitutional principles and violated its written pledge to work cooperatively with the State of Texas to address shared immigration enforcement concerns. This unlawful reversal will cause Texas immediate and irreparable harm if it is not enjoined.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to work His will through the reforming of U.S. immigration.
  • For wisdom for the federal judge overseeing the case.
  • For God to guide the Texas attorney general to protect both citizens and migrants.
