It has already begun. The open borders people have won. The illegal aliens that are coming up from Central America by the thousands and those already here will stay without fear of deportation with very few exceptions.
Biden has declared a 100-day moratorium on deportations. Even many criminal illegal aliens will stay. For that reason the AG of Texas, Ken Paxton is suing the Biden regime over the policy.
The border states always bear the biggest burden from illegal aliens and Texas has more than its share.
Biden is promising to pass amnesty for between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens. The question will be if there are any Democrats who are afraid of the voters if they vote for such a bill.
Recent polls suggest that the voters oppose amnesty at least until Americans all have jobs again.
“In one of its first of dozens of steps that harm Texas and the nation as a whole, the Biden administration directed DHS to violate federal immigration law and breach an agreement to consult and cooperate with Texas on that law.”
They didn’t budge.

Acting DHS Secretary David Pekoske signed a memorandum to the various enforcement agencies that the administration will not be deporting illegal aliens, including those who have their final orders of deportation.
Ken Paxton informed Biden and Pekoske that Texas has signed a contractual agreement with the Trump administration in December and that their policy violates the agreement. According to the agreement authorities have to discuss it with Texas before changing immigration policy, which they failed to do. Paxton is suing the Biden family enterprises for breach of contract.
The motion filed by the state attorney general argues that Texas faces “imminent and irreparable harms” as a result of the policy change. It also calls on the court to declare the deportation freeze unlawful and issue a preliminary injunction on further changes to immigration enforcement policy.
It is unclear whether Paxton’s motion would be granted by the court. The agreement signed between the Trump administration and Texas was the first of its kind and federal courts have not ruled on such agreements between states and the federal government.
