Remember during Trump’s presidency when a judge would step in and block something he was trying to do and Democrats would cheer?
Well now the same thing is happening to them.
A federal judge has just blocked Biden’s plans to suspend deportations for 100 days. Oh well. That’s just the way things go, right?
CBS News reports:
Federal judge indefinitely blocks Biden administration’s 100-day moratorium on most deportations
A federal judge late Tuesday indefinitely banned President Joe Biden’s administration from enforcing a 100-day moratorium on most deportations. U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a preliminary injunction sought by Texas, which argued the moratorium violated federal law and risked imposing additional costs on the state.
Mr. Biden proposed the 100-day pause on deportations during his campaign as part of a larger review of immigration enforcement and an attempt to reverse the priorities of former President Donald Trump.
Mr. Biden has proposed a sweeping immigration bill that would allow the legalization of an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally. He has also instituted other guidelines on who immigration and border agents should target for enforcement.
Tipton, a Trump appointee, initially ruled on Jan. 26 that the moratorium violated federal law on administrative procedure and that the U.S. failed to show why a deportation pause was justified. A temporary restraining order the judge issued was set to expire Tuesday.
Tough luck, Democrats.

Democrats set this precedent and now they have to live with it.
