Idaho Attorney General Raúl Labrador announced Wednesday the filing of a new lawsuit against the administration for President Joe Biden.
“Earlier this month the Biden Administration unveiled the expansion of an unlawful plan to parole illegal immigrants into the United States,” according to an AG’s Office press release. “Under the Biden Administration’s plan, every year 360,000 illegal immigrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela can enter and remain in the U.S.”
“Federal law tells the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to exercise discretionary authority, evaluating individual immigrants on a “case-by-case” basis,” Labrador said in press release. “The Biden administration is now attempting to create a new federal ‘program’ that goes way beyond case-by-case review and potentially grants status to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. If this administration wants to amend federal immigration law, they need to ask Congress.”
The office said it will sue to “ensure that the Biden administration complies with existing federal immigration laws.”
