In an early rebuke of Joe Biden’s disastrous policies, the Biden administration has already lost a string of significant court cases. From rulings against Biden’s dangerous immigration policies to rulings against the radical American Rescue Plan, Biden and his agenda are rightfully being challenged by judges across America.
In his first major court loss as president, Biden’s executive order that began a moratorium on deportations was ruled illegal. On January 20, 2021, Biden signed an executive order that initiated a 100-day moratorium on the deportation of nearly all illegal immigrants. On January 26, 2021, U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a temporary restraining order to block Biden’s 100-day deportation moratorium after he ruled that the moratorium lacked justification and was illegal. To quote Judge Tipton, “The Defendants do not cite, and the Court cannot find, other instances in which any government agency paused its essential duties and tasks for 100 days to reassess its priorities.” This loss in court was the first of many for Biden and his administration.
In the first court ruling against the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, a federal judge in Texas ruled that the Biden administration practiced discrimination by prioritizing approximately $29 billion in federal restaurant relief funds for women and minorities. On May 28, 2021, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor ordered the Small Business Administration (SBA) to stop using the guidelines outlined in the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to prioritize the allocation of federal restaurant relief grants to minority and female applicants. According to Judge O’Connor, the Biden administration engaged in “race and sex discrimination” by denying grants to applicants that otherwise would have received aid if they were of a different race or sex.
In another ruling against the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, a federal judge in Wisconsin issued a temporary restraining order on June 10, 2021. Judge William Griesbach from Wisconsin’s Eastern District issued the order to halt the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s loan forgiveness program that exclusively applied to farmers that “are one or more of the following: Black/African American, American Indian, Alaskan Native, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, or Pacific Islander.” To quote Judge Griesbach, “Plaintiffs are excluded from the program based on their race and are thus experiencing discrimination at the hands of their government.” The federal government should never provide relief funds on the basis of race. In the eyes of the government, poor farmers are poor farmers, regardless of their skin color.
On June 1, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled against Cesar Alcaraz-Enriquez in a landmark immigration case. In the case, Alcaraz-Enriquez argued that he deserved asylum due to vague claims that he was fleeing violence and gangs in his home country of Mexico. According to the ruling, asylum applicants such as Alcaraz-Enriquez cannot be presumed to be telling the truth to immigration officials. To quote the unanimous opinion, “For many years, and over many dissents, the Ninth Circuit has proceeded on the view that, ‘In the absence of an explicit adverse credibility finding [by the agency], we must assume that [the alien’s] factual contentions are true’ or at least credible. This view appears to be an outlier.” Despite this, the Biden administration recently announced that they will allow migrants to claim asylum due to claims of being threatened by gangs and domestic violence in their home country that are presumed to be true. Based on the precedent established by the recent Supreme Court ruling, these orders are illegal and should therefore be imminently ruled as such by a judge.
On June 15, 2021, a federal judge in Louisiana blocked Biden’s pause on all new gas and oil leases on federal land. According to a preliminary injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Terry A. Doughty, the Biden administration cannot legally halt leases on federal land for the purpose of oil and gas production without the approval of Congress. To quote Judge Doughty, “The omission of any rational explanation in canceling the lease sales, and in enacting the Pause, results in this Court ruling that Plaintiff States also have a substantial likelihood of success on the merits of this claim.”
In Biden’s most recent loss in court, Florida Middle District Judge Steven Merryday ruled that Biden’s CDC exceeded authority by attempting to dictate rules for cruise ships in America. Using Covid-19 as a rationale, the CDC issued a sailing order that barred any cruise ships from sailing without following a strict set of guidelines. According to a preliminary injunction issued by Judge Merryday on June 18, 2021, “The CDC’s conditional sailing order and the implementing orders exceed the authority delegated to the CDC.” The ruling came as a result of a lawsuit filed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis against Biden’s CDC. DeSantis praised the ruling in a recent statement that claims, “The CDC has been wrong all along, and they knew it.”
Biden is a reckless radical that is attempting to utilize power and discrimination to enact his agenda. Thankfully, judges across America are standing up to Biden and his administration’s illegal actions.
