18-state prosecutors tell Biden deportations must continue

Attorneys general in 18 states have told US President Joe Biden by letter that deportations of undocumented immigrants convicted of sex crimes must continue.

After Biden’s presidential inauguration, and within the framework of its immigration policy by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service (ICE), the so-called ‘Operation Talon’ was canceled, which, according to prosecutors, focused on sexual crimes.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published its priorities for the deportation of undocumented migrants that will be in effect for 90 days while the government develops details of its immigration policy.

These priorities include the expulsion of foreigners who pose a danger to society or who have been convicted of serious crimes or involvement with criminal gangs.

The suspension of ‘Operation Talon’, according to the prosecutors who sent their letter to Biden, is “poorly advised, threatens to encourage sexual predators to victimize women and children, and exacerbates the tragic crisis of sexual assault and sex trafficking among women. migrant communities ”.

For his part, the attorney general of Texas, Ken Paxton, who has challenged in court Biden’s decree that opened a 100-day pause in deportations, pointed out that “dangerous criminals within the undocumented population must be brought to justice ”.

“Federal law enforcement and security agencies dedicated to protecting Americans and the rule of law cannot refuse to carry out their duties,” Paxton said. “I urge the Biden government to maintain this operation and others like it across the country.”

The letter, also addressed to Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, is signed by the attorneys general of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisana, Missisippi, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Carolina del South, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.

The Texas lawsuit against the Biden government is based on an agreement signed at the last minute with the government of former President Donald Trump according to which the federal government must give several states a notice 180 days in advance when it orders changes in the policy migratory.

However, last week a coalition of attorneys general from 16 states joined the Biden administration in the lawsuit alleging that Texas’ arrangement with the Trump administration is illegal.

Federal Judge Drew Tripton, of the Southern District Court of Texas, extended until February 23 the court order blocking the moratorium on deportations decreed by Biden.
