(FreedomWire.org) – A federal judge appointed by President Donald Trump has refused to toss out a major lawsuit against the Biden administration regarding immigration and border enforcement.

According to Republic Brief, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody filed suit against the Department of Homeland Security in February alleging that the agency is exceeding its authority by releasing illegal aliens into the interior of the country, putting undue financial and other stress and strain on states.

U.S. District Judge T. Kent Wetherell II ruled this week that the lawsuit can proceed, according to Law.com:

The lawsuit alleges that the Biden administration has violated immigration laws through policies that have led to people being released from detention after crossing the U.S. border with Mexico. Also, it alleges that the releases affect Florida because of issues such as increased education, healthcare, and criminal-justice costs.

Justice Department attorneys raised a series of arguments in seeking dismissal of the case, including disputing a Florida contention that the Biden administration has a “non-detention” policy.

But Wetherell disagreed.

“Suffice it to say the court is wholly unpersuaded by defendants’ position that they have unfettered discretion to determine how or if to comply with the immigration statutes and that there is nothing that Florida or this court can do about their policies even if they contravene the immigration statutes,” Wetherell wrote in a 37-page decision.

“This position is as remarkable as it is wrong because it is well established that no one, not even the president, is above the law and the court unquestionably has the authority to say what the law is and to invalidate the action of the executive branch that contravenes the law and/or the Constitution. Thus, if Florida’s allegations that defendants are essentially flaunting the immigration laws are proven to be true, the court most certainly can (and will) do something about it,” he added.

The Justice Dept. also argued that Florida did not have “standing” to bring the lawsuit, but Wetherell dismissed that as well.

“Florida has plausibly alleged that the challenged policies already have and will continue to cost it millions of dollars, including the cost of incarcerating criminal aliens and the cost of providing a variety of public benefits, including unemployment benefits, free public education, and emergency services to aliens who settle in Florida after being ‘paroled’ into the country,” Wetherell wrote.

In his ruling, the judge acknowledged the federal government’s arguments that “Congress has authorized it to establish immigration enforcement policies and priorities, specifically those related to allocating its limited resources, thereby conveying discretion.”

“However,” he wrote, “Congress was presumably aware that defendants have limited resources when it enacted the detention requirement, yet it still chose to use language mandating detention,” he wrote. “Even if resource allocation and other policy priorities can be considered in defendants’ exercise of their limited parole authority … those considerations do not give defendants carte blanche to release arriving aliens without undertaking individualized case-by-case assessments as required by that statute, as they have allegedly done through the challenged policies — particularly if, as Florida alleges, defendants have essentially created the problem the challenged policies seek to alleviate.”

Last weekend, former DHS Secretary Chad Wolf expressed renewed concerns over the Biden administration’s border enforcement policies, which are far laxer than those of former President Donald Trump.

“I’m very concerned, not only for the American people, but also for Border Patrol, who continues to be in a crisis now for 15 months, and they have no end in sight…at the end of the day, this administration doesn’t appear to want to actually solve this problem of this illegal behavior. There’s no deterrent in any of the policies or processes that they are currently undertaking in responding to,” he told Fox News.

“Instead, they put out a six-point pillar plan to deal with Title 42 going away, and it’s simply processing more and more individuals into the country…until we get serious about making sure that we hold people accountable for breaking the law and removing individuals very quickly back to their home countries, that don’t have a legal right to be here…unfortunately, you’re going to continue to see historic numbers. We’re going to have historic numbers in April, and we certainly will have them in May as well,” he added.

Republican lawmakers are also sounding off on the Biden border policies, which have led to record-high encounters with illegal migrants and skyrocketing drug smuggling.

“The Chinese Communist Party is in business with the major cartels down in Mexico to flood our country with fentanyl, and they’re killing our kids. We cannot afford to lift Title 42,” Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.) tweeted earlier this month.

(FreedomWire.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the long-serving Democrat from California, refuses to investigate where covid 19 came from. According to Peter Schweizer, the author of “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win,” is due to her very close financial ties to China and that includes her husband. 

Investigations could potentially be launched by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), but Schweizer has said that Speaker Pelosi should not be let off the hook so easily and needs to answer questions about her financial endeavors in China.

It is no secret that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) plays a heavy role in nearly everything that happens in China, making it virtually impossible to avoid them if a foreign national wants to do business in the country.

On Pelosi’s Chinese investments, Schweizer said, “She and her family have strong financial ties in China,” adding, “The covid investigation, to me, is particularly important. I mean, it’s been now more than two years – covid’s happened. In the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi has refused for there to even be a committee hearing on the origins of covid.”

As yet, there has been not a single committee hearing on the wu-flu’s origins and it has been clear for some time now, that the disease did not originate in a wet market in Wuhan, China.

“There’s not been one committee hearing to say, ‘Hey, maybe we should discuss to see where it came from.’ And honestly, I think one of the reasons, as I point out in the book, is she and her family have strong financial ties in China.”

According to Schweizer, Pelosi’s husband and son have also made a ton of money from deals done with the CCP and evidence suggests that the entire Pelosi family is heavily invested in China. Nancy also has questions surrounding her conduct around stock trading.

When recently asked whether or not members of Congress should be able to trade on the stock exchange, Pelosi stated that they should be allowed to, as they are private citizens and that should be their right to do so. However, when you literally control the laws of the land, including legislation that directly affects the stock market – it is beyond a conflict of interest at that point.

Sadly, whatever good was left in Pelosi has been seeping out for years now and we are all left with a third in charge, a corrupt leader, who is only interested in furthering her own agenda for the big bucks.

“She used to be quite critical on Beijing on human rights,” Schweizer says about Pelosi, noting that “she’s really pivoted” in recent years. “That has changed almost entirely.”

“So, if McCarthy comes in, I hope that those investigations happen and he has the power with some congressional committees to actually issue subpoenas. So, how about we have subpoenas and have Hunter Biden and others actually testify under oath about what’s going on.”

It appears that Pelosi may know more about the origins of covid than she lets on about and the fact that she refuses to speak on it, suggests that she may have a reason to hide these as it would undoubtedly expose her own ties and dirty deals with the CCP.
