(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody have slapped President Joe Biden with an amended complaint in their lawsuit against the Biden administration, accusing the administration of implementing an unlawful immigration policy.
In the new “Parole + Alternatives to Detention” policy, illegal immigrants are released within the U.S. without undergoing the process of removal.
In the complaint, DeSantis and Moody claim that federal immigration officials enable migrants to resettle in the country, adding that the Transportation Security Administration would accept “immigration arrest warrants as identification sufficient to board a domestic flight.”
Discussing the legislation, Desantis emphasized that the Biden administration had “consciously refused to enforce immigration laws” while “secretly” resettling “illegal aliens into communities across Florida and the rest of the United States.”
He criticized the Biden administration for making these decisions “in the dark of night without any coordination with states, without any background checks, and without any efforts to initiate the legal process for their removal,” before expressing gratitude that Moody was continuing her work in the “fight to hold the Biden administration accountable for its reckless disregard for immigration laws.”
This latest action follows Florida’s challenge to the Biden administration’s catch-and-release border practices in a September lawsuit.
The amended complaint also highlighted the millions of taxpayer dollars the state of Florida had to spend providing public services and benefits to illegal immigrants, requesting the Biden administration to supply financial relief in addition to reversing non-detention immigration policies.
Florida has also been involved in litigation against other Biden administration policies.
Following the Biden administration reinstating an Obama-era program, Central America Minors, that enabled illegal immigrant minors to enter the U.S. and remain in the country, bypassing existing legislation, Florida joined a Texas-led multi-state coalition suing the Biden administration for this policy.
