January 27 – A federal judge in the United States suspended a new immigration order of the Biden administration on the 26th local time, which requires a moratorium on the expulsion of non-U.S. citizens for 100 days after Biden takes office.
According to CNBC, U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton ruled on the previous lawsuit filed in Texas, and ruled that the Biden administration’s moratorium on evictions was illegal.
Tipton wrote in an 18-page order that the Biden administration’s ban may be out of the federal government’s authority and violate federal law. Tipton wrote that his order would apply for 14 days.
According to the executive order signed by President Biden, the U.S. Homeland Security Agency suspended “the expulsion of certain non-American citizens” for 100 days from January 22.
The immigration ban signed by Biden triggered dissatisfaction in Texas, which filed a lawsuit in the federal district court on the 22nd seeking a moratorium on the expulsion ban.
The lawsuit, filed in the Southern District Court of Texas, is one of the first legal challenges that the new U.S. government has encountered since taking office. The presiding judge of the lawsuit was Tipton, a district judge appointed by Trump.
