Joe Biden has signed more executive orders in his opening days than any President ever.
He is trying to completely reshape America with just his pen.
But now he is shaking with rage after a federal judge gave him his worst news yet.
For four years, President Donald Trump did his best to enact his agenda.
He did what he could through the legislature, and did what he was allowed to do through his executive authority.
But no matter what he did, Democrats used activist judges to block him on everything they could.
Often, those judges caused months-long delays on important issues like building a wall on the southern border, with much applause from Democrats.
But now Democrats aren’t so happy with federal judges using this power, as it is now affecting Joe Biden as he goes on his executive order signing spree.
One of Biden’s opening day orders was a 100-day ban on deporting illegal aliens.
This order came following news of a massive illegal migrant caravan moving through Central America to the U.S. border.
It would make it impossible for those who cross the border to be deported once they entered the United States.
So the state of Texas sought a restraining order against this order, demanding the ability to deport illegal immigrants.
And just this week, U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton agreed, blocking Biden’s directive.
Tipton said the Biden administration had failed “to provide any concrete, reasonable justification for a 100-day pause on deportations.”
Biden’s White House responded to the news, simply stating, “President Biden remains committed to taking immediate action to reform our immigration system to ensure it’s upholding American values while keeping our communities safe.”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who led the effort to block the deportation ban, argued it violated federal law, as well as an agreement Texas signed with the Department of Homeland Security when Trump was in office, which requires Homeland Security to consult with Texas and any other states before taking any action to “reduce, redirect, reprioritize, relax, or in any way modify immigration enforcement.”
The Biden administration argued in court filings that the agreement with Texas is unenforceable because “an outgoing administration cannot contract away that power for an incoming administration.”
Unless Biden can win on that argument, it will be difficult for him to enact orders such as this, as there is no way that state’s like Texas will go along with them.
