Deportation freeze still on hold


Best mugshot ever

A federal judge in Texas has put an indefinite halt to President Joe Biden’s 100-day ban on deportations after issuing a preliminary injunction late Tuesday.

The ruling by Judge Drew Tipton comes after he had already temporarily paused the moratorium twice. The ban is nationwide and is in place as the case continues to play out in courts.

The ruling is a victory for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who sued to block Biden’s order three days into the Biden administration. Paxton’s office argued the state would face financial harm if undocumented immigrants were released into the state because of costs associated with health care and education, and said the moratorium would also lure others to come to Texas.

Tipton, a Trump appointee to the federal bench, wrote in his order that Texas would also incur costs for detaining immigrants within its state. “Texas claimed injury from unanticipated detention costs is sufficiently concrete and imminent. The harm is concrete or de facto because Texas incurs real financial costs in detaining criminal aliens,” he wrote.

It’s unclear whether the Biden administration will appeal the ruling to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over Texas’ federal benches.

See here, here, and here for the background. This continues to be a load of crap, though as noted before one that seems to have a fairly limited impact. I don’t know what the argument is for not appealing. You can find a copy of the order here.

    The good news, here, is that Biden cancelled the Trump era “Operation Talon,” to locate and deport illegal alien sex offenders. I mean, those are valued members of our community. We clearly don’t have enough US citizen sex offenders here, so we need to make sure we do NOT deport our sin papeles sex offenders.

    It’s for the children, y’all!

    “Makes Absolutely No Sense” – Biden Cancels Trump’s ‘Operation Talon’ Program Targeting Immigrant Sex Offenders


    Biden has made it clear that his number one mission as president is to undo everything the Trump administration accomplished over the last four years.

    His newest cancellation simply does not make sense.

    Biden’s administration recently cancelled Operation Talon, a Trump administration program aimed at removing convicted sex offenders living in the United States illegally.

    Though the program seems to be something everyone should support, it clearly isn’t. Why would anyone want sex offenders to remain in the country?

    South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson joined a coalition of 18 state attorneys general to urge Biden to reverse the cancellation, according to ABC 4 News.

    “We’re working hard to fight human trafficking and sex crimes in South Carolina and allowing convicted sex offenders who are here illegally to remain in our country makes absolutely no sense,” Wilson said.

    “These trafficking and sex crimes are repugnant to human decency generally and to children specifically,” he added.

    The letter, directed to Joe Biden, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Acting Director of ICE Tae Johnson, pointed out the problems with this cancellation. The attorneys general argued that canceling Operation Talon could encourage sexual predators to attack.

    “The United States’ population of illegal immigrants includes disturbingly large numbers of criminals with prior convictions for sexual crimes,” the letter reads.

    “According to data collected by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, during the period from October 2014 to May 2018 ICE arrested 19,572 illegal aliens with criminal convictions for whom the most serious prior conviction was a conviction for a sex-related offense.”

    “Meanwhile, an increasing number of illegal aliens are entering the United States after having been previously convicted of sexual offenses,” it continues.

    “The cancellation of [Operation Talon] effectively broadcasts to the world that the United States is now a sanctuary jurisdiction for sexual predators. This message creates a perverse incentive for foreign sexual predators to seek to enter the United States illegally and assault more victims, both in the process of unlawful migration and after they arrive. It will also broadcast the message to other criminal aliens who have committed other offenses that any kind of robust enforcement against them is unlikely.”

    The letter begs perhaps the most important question:

    “If the United States will not remove even convicted sex offenders, whom will it remove?””

    When conspiracy pushers like Bill Daniels are not allowed to post their garbage on even Facebook, they come to sites like this to push the lies.

    The facts;

  3. Manny says:

    Lies like Bill, Fox, and other haters of America must be exposed often and loudly:

  4. Bill Daniels says:


    From your own ‘Daily Dot’ link:

    “Supporters of Biden, however, claimed that Operation Talon was merely paused by ICE officials “until they see how it comports with new guidance from the Biden administration.”

    Oh, OK, so you merely paused the operation to deport illegal alien sex offenders. That should come as some small comfort to all the American citizens and American citizen children who are attacked by these predators during the “pause.”

    Shit, Manny, Trump left a poison pill for Biden and Biden took the bait. Your links are falling all over themselves to explain away a very simple concept. Trump ordered sexual predator illegals to be a priority for removal. Biden stopped that.

    Just more of Biden’s pro-criminal policies for America. I hope the women and kids in your family aren’t victims of this policy reversal, Manny.

  5. Bill Daniels says:

    From the second link:

    “Misbar’s investigation found this claim to be suspicious. On February 7th, The Washington Post reported that ICE officials themselves had canceled Operation Talon, and the Biden Administration was not directly involved in the decision. According to a senior ICE official, it was suspended due to changes in immigration policy, and while they awaited new instructions under the new presidency.”

    So, the leftists over at “Misbar” freely admit that:

    ~Operation Talon, a policy to catch and deport sexual predator illegals, was in fact, a real thing. Not fake. True. Misbar admits it’s true.

    ~Operation Talon was stopped because of changes in immigration policy…..changes Biden himself made. So it was Biden’s actions that explicitly led to the cancelling of a program to hunt down and deport sexual predators.

    What can we infer from this? Biden’s policies are geared to help foreigners, and foreign countries, at the expense of America and American citizens. Biden proudly declared that the era of putting Americans first was over. Well, here you go.

    sexual predator illegals > American citizen readers of OTK

  6. Manny says:

    Bill, you would swear that manure did not stink to push your stupidity.

    Bill, you missed the part that “Operation Talon” was never implemented.

    Like I stated, your mind will twist night into day.

  7. Manny says:

    Missed the following Bill;

    “senior ICE official who said the Biden administration had nothing to do with the decision to cancel Operation Talon.”

    Bill, you would swear that manure did not stink to push your stupidity.

    Like I stated, your mind will twist night into day.

  8. Manny says:

    You missed the following Bill:

    “Operation Talon had only been proposed during the final weeks of the Trump administration, and there is little evidence that it was ever put into action. It’s also unclear whether it was responsible for actual arrests or deportations. The same ICE official told the Post that Homeland Security Investigations, a wing of ICE that conducts criminal investigations, has continued investigating sex offenses involving U.S. noncitizens.”

    Bill, you would swear that manure did not stink to push your stupidity.

    Like I stated, your mind will twist night into day.

  9. Manny says:

    Obama was deporting people that were not here legally for committing sex crimes.

    Why did Trump stop doing it for 4 years and waiting till the waiting days to try rounding up the people that could be deported for committing sex crimes?

    I am glad that Biden, is no doing what Trump should have done, deport people who commit sex crimes and that are here illegally.

  10. Bill Daniels says:


    Your journey from down with the cause Chicano supremacist to White-Hispanic racist seems complete!

    Let’s recap:

    ~You now support deporting illegals, and fault Trump for not deporting enough of them.

    And now, I need you to pick just one narrative and stick with it. Is it this:

    “senior ICE official who said the Biden administration had nothing to do with the decision to cancel Operation Talon.”

    or this:

    “The Washington Post reported that ICE officials themselves had canceled Operation Talon, and the Biden Administration was not directly involved in the decision. According to a senior ICE official, it was suspended due to changes in immigration policy, and while they awaited new instructions under the new presidency.”

    Who ordered the changes in immigration policy, Manny? Kamala? The Rothchilds? George Soros? Jeff Bezos? Trump? Did you ever watch the movie, “A Few Good Men?” Who ordered the Code Red, Manny? It wasn’t Trump that changed the policy. It wasn’t Trump that ordered all deportations to be halted for the first 100 days. Who was it?

    On the plus side, though, I guess I can take some small comfort in the fact that Biden is putting brown kids in cages again, right here in Texas, in Carrizo Springs.

    I mean, if we’re gonna let illegals in now, instead of repelling them at the border, at least we get the satisfaction of torturing them in ‘ice boxes’ again, so there’s that.

    Oh, and we’re bombing Syria now, so maybe Biden is looking for his own Nobel Peace Prize, which seems to be the reward for high score in starting wars. Personally, I’m stoked about the mass killings of non White Muslims, after 4 years of no new wars, pulling out of Syria, and trying to end the Afghan and Iraq wars. You?

  11. Manny says:

    Bill, your racist beliefs are being exposed.

    The Chicano movement was never about immigration.

    Operation Talon was started by Bill Clinton.

    Bill and your fella racists are the ones that created something out of nothing.

    Bill, if we will get into creating imaginary persons to suit our needs, then let me explain how I see you.

    A failure that relied on your mama to support you.

    You have had financial problems all your life.

    You are a racist.

    You are a bigot.

    You are a misogynist.

    You have seen psychiatrists most of your adult life.

    You have so much fear that you won’t leave your home unless heavily armed.

    Bill, no one is illegal. Illegal is an adjective. Even as a noun, it would be illegally.

    I don’t get upset with what Biden is doing. Why are you? I celebrated the death of Rush, which should tell you something about me. If I outlive Trump, I will celebrate his death.

    C.L. was close to being right about being invited to parties, and I am known to be a cold-hearted bastard unless one is a friend or family.

    I hate racists and bigots.

    I don’t care who marries who or how they have sex.

    I don’t care if women have abortions. I can’t understand why some people care what others do.

    I objected to your use of illegals years ago because your racist mind can’t tell who is here legally or illegally, so your kind of people assume that everyone is here illegally until proven otherwise.

    Bill, I also think you not half as smart as you think you are. I know you are not based on your consulted logic.

  12. Bill Daniels says:


    A whole lot of rambling there, but let me just cherry pick a few of my favorites to respond to. The Chicanos weren’t about immigration. True! You know who was fervently AGAINST illegals coming across the border? Cesar Chavez, leader of the United Farm Workers! Chavez knew very well how hordes of illegals pouring across the border lowered wages for his union members. You claim to be a Chicano, yet you are diametrically opposed to what Chavez believed. You want the country flooded with people who will drive down the wages for the jobs your kids and grandkids, have.

    Next, illegal alien is a legal term, Manny. You claim you went to law school, you should know that it’s a legal term. It’s in the US Code, Manny.

    Finally, with respect to abortions, at least we have common ground there, Manny. I support abortion, because I want fewer liberal kids being born that I will be asked to pay for, or will grow up to rob/assault/murder me. So we both can support the slaughter of innocent babies, eh, Manny?

    Post Script: I’m not sure what to make out of your term, “consulted logic.” Did you mean ‘convoluted logic,’ as a pejorative?
