Federal Judge Denies Injunction on Immigration

Rules that interim policies are handled differently than statutes.

U.S. District Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell denied a request for a preliminary injunction to block President Biden’s executive orders pausing enforcement of illegal immigration. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody had argued that the policies threaten public safety and would ”cost the state millions of dollars on law enforcement, incarceration, and crime victim’s assistance.”

In a 23-page decision, Judge Honeywell indicated that interim policies are not final statutes and the “memoranda reflect discretionary agency decisions related to the prioritization of immigration enforcement cases, which are presumptively not subject to judicial review.”

The Florida attorney general has filed an appeal.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For federal judges to rule according to the law as they hear cases regarding administration policies.
  • For wisdom for U.S. officials carrying out the interim policies and in reporting findings and outcomes.
  • For the president and his Cabinet as permanent policy choices are made.
