Florida’s Attorney General is headed for a courtroom showdown with the Biden administration over the border crisis

Feb 1, 2024

Joe Biden’s open borders agenda has created the worst illegal immigration crisis in recent history.

Republican officials are fighting back at the state level.

And now Florida’s Attorney General is headed for a courtroom showdown with the Biden administration over the border crisis.

Border Patrol agents apprehended 302,000 illegal aliens attempting to cross the border and enter the country in the month of December.

This was the first time in history that more than 300,000 illegal aliens were apprehended in one month.

With the Biden administration refusing to lift a finger to secure the border, Republican officials are taking action at the state level to try and stop the flow of illegal aliens into the country.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott ordered law-enforcement officials in the state to put up razor wire in certain areas along the border.

This prompted a lawsuit from the Biden administration which eventually led to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of allowing Border Patrol agents to take down the razor wire.

However, Governor Abbott is refusing to back down and has vowed to continue putting up new wire every time federal agents take it down.

25 Republican Governors released a joint statement voicing their support for Greg Abbott’s efforts to secure his state’s border.

“President Biden and his Administration have left Americans and our country completely vulnerable to unprecedented illegal immigration pouring across the Southern border,” the joint statement read. “Instead of upholding the rule of law and securing the border, the Biden Administration has attacked and sued Texas for stepping up to protect American citizens from historic levels of illegal immigrants, deadly drugs like fentanyl, and terrorists entering our country.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was one of the 25 Republicans to sign the joint statement.

DeSantis is also one of the Republican officials taking action at the state level to fight Biden’s border crisis.

Last year, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody filed federal lawsuits against Biden’s effort to keep the southern border wide open.

Federal judge T. Kent Wetherell agreed with Moody and issued a ruling declaring that the Biden administration was responsible for the border crisis.

After Judge Wetherell ordered an end to the practice of catch and release, the Biden administration filed an appeal in federal court.

And Moody is now headed primed for a courtroom showdown on Friday with the Biden administration in the Eleventh Circuit.

“Attorney General Ashley Moody’s office will be in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit Friday, as the Biden administration seeks reversal of a judgment obtained by Florida that directs U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to follow federal immigration laws,” Moody’s office wrote in a press release. “The Biden administration continues to catch and release millions of unvetted migrants into the interior of the country.”

Moody slammed Joe Biden for refusing to secure the border from invasion.

“Biden is ignoring the law and the opinion we obtained in federal court regarding his open border policies,” Moody said. “He is wasting time and resources fighting Florida and Texas instead of doing his job and ending the border crisis,” she continued. “As a result, more than 8 million unvetted immigrants and hundreds of millions of deadly doses of fentanyl have flooded into our country with no signs of stopping as long as Biden is president.”

Polls show the border crisis is now the top issue for voters in November.

And Republican officials like Attorney General Ashley Moody are fighting to hold Biden accountable and show the American people the truth about his open borderss agenda.
