The policy of the Government of President Joe Biden seeks the expulsion of people in an irregular situation, but gives priority to those who represent a threat to the United States.

The Supreme Court of the United States examines this Tuesday (11.29.2022) the policy of the Government of Joe Biden on the deportation of migrants in an irregular situation, which gives priority to those who represent a threat to the security of the country.

The government of the Democratic president instructed the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service (ICE) in September 2021 to focus on foreigners who represent a threat (terrorist or criminal) or who have recently arrived on US territory.

It is estimated that more than 11 million irregular migrants live in the United States and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) “does not have the resources to detain and expel each of these non-citizens,” the head of this portfolio alleged at the time. Alejandro Mayorkas.

These guidelines are very different from those of the administration of former Republican President Donald Trump, who favored expelling everyone regardless of whether they are integrated into society.

fierce opposition

But Joe Biden's new immigration slogans, like all the ones he adopts in this area, ran into fierce opposition from Republican-led states, which argue that they mean more spending on education, police and social services .

Some of these states challenged them in court, which delivered conflicting verdicts.

Until in June a federal judge in Texas blocked the new immigration guidelines from the Joe Biden government, before which he appealed to the Supreme Court to apply them.

In July, the Supreme Court refused to rule on the urgent route , which made the slogans remain a dead letter, but agreed to examine the merits of the case, which will be what it does this Tuesday morning during a hearing court in Washington.

After hearing the arguments of the federal government and the state of Texas, he will pronounce a verdict before the end of June.
