A judge orders a halt to quick releases at the US-Mexico border


A Florida judge has ordered this Wednesday to stop the rapid releases of migrants at the United States border with Mexico.

The magistrate, Kent Wetherell, has indicated that the Biden Administration is breaking immigration law by authorizing the release of migrants under programs similar to parole while asylum cases are processed.

Thus, he has agreed with the state of Florida, which sued the government policy in 2021, and has explained that a rule that calls for the use of paths similar to probation for migrants entering the country is "illegal."

Wetherell, appointed by then-President Donald Trump, has considered that this rule has "turned the southwest border into a meaningless line in the sand and little more than a speed bump for foreigners flooding the country."

The Republican attorney general of Florida, Ashely Moodey, who sued the government two years ago on behalf of the state, has responded that this ruling "affirms what we have known all along, that President Biden is responsible for the border crisis and his policies of illegal immigration make this country less safe," according to NBC.

"A federal judge now orders Biden to comply with the law, and his administration must immediately begin securing the border to protect the American people," Moodey added.

Border Patrol granted "parole" to 572,575 migrants last year, including a record 130,563 in December. This measure collapsed by 96 percent, when notifying 5,225 migrants in January, after the administration announced measures aimed at dissuading Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans from crossing the border, reports the aforementioned television channel.
