Ashley Moody, the attorney general of Florida, submitted a brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of a legal action brought by Texas and Louisiana to stop a hazardous and crazy Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policy that renders citizens defenseless targets for violent criminals.
The regulation Moody wants modified restricts federal authorities’ ability to hold and deport dangerous criminal aliens, allowing them to stay in the country and be free to commit more crimes without facing serious repercussions.
Democrat Joe Biden was criticized by Moody, who also joined 18 other attorneys general in filing a petition with the court in favor of Texas and Louisiana’s action. “Biden’s refusal to enact federal immigration laws passed by Congress is jeopardizing public safety,” Moody stated.
By requiring state governments to spend more money to clean up the disaster created by the federal government, the disastrous and insane Biden program also depletes funds intended to aid American residents.
The brief claims that Florida locks up over 7,000 criminal foreign nationals for more than $130 million annually. But according to her, paying for victims’ assistance, emergency medical care, and law enforcement costs will cost taxpayers millions more.
Law enforcement officials across Florida have discovered that illegal aliens are not only killing Floridians but also smuggling people and drugs into Florida from Mexico. Additionally, over the past three months, they have found enough fentanyl to kill everyone in Florida.
Federal law mandates that foreign nationals who have entered the country unlawfully and who have been found guilty of specific offenses be detained and assessed for removal after being removed from custody by law enforcement. Texas and Louisiana claim that this regulation hasn’t been followed because the directive Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued last year significantly altered removal procedures.
“Moody’s office has taken action against the Biden administration over immigration and border security since last March. She’s also led a coalition of AGs calling on Mayorkas to resign, claiming dereliction of duty,”
“In March 2021, Florida first sued over Biden administration directives suspending arrests and deportations of certain criminal aliens. On Jan. 20, President Joe Biden issued Executive Order 13993, Revisions of Civil Immigration Enforcement Policies and Priorities. Then, Mayorkas issued a temporary and then final guidance halting nearly all civil immigration enforcements and paused the removal of any noncitizen with a final order of removal for 100 days with subsequent directives.”

As a result, Moody argued, “convicted criminals in the country illegally – including drug traffickers, sex offenders and those convicted of domestic violence – will no longer be deported but instead remain in Florida free to commit further offenses.”
Moody has been working hard to clean up Florida. Just the News reported on the timeline of her actions for the state:
In September 2021, Florida joined 17 other states in filing an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Texas and Louisiana asking the court to prohibit the Biden administration from limiting nearly all deportations and immigration-related arrests, including for those convicted of serious and violent crimes. The Supreme Court is expected to hear oral arguments in this case later this month. CONTINUE READING…
