Federal judge enjoins border parole policy releasing migrants en masse
A federal judge granted Attorney General Ashley Moody’s request for a Temporary Restraining Order enjoining the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from releasing migrants that had been detained under a new and last-minute parole policy.
But the TRO issued on the May 10 Memorandum of U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz expires on May 25.
“We’ll see if it gets converted to a preliminary injunction,” said Gene Hamilton, America First vice president and general counsel. “This legal action has the potential to affect nationally but it depends on the scope of relief that the judge will eventually order, whether he just vacates the memo or whether there’s some kind of injunction of further unlawful action.”
