(SNews) – A Florida federal judge has blocked Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration from releasing illegal migrants into the United States without being issued with notices to appear in court.

The temporary restraining order was issued on Thursday night by District Judge T. Kent Wetherell II.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody sued the Biden administration on Thursday.

Judge Wetherell said in his ruling:

Florida has a substantial likelihood of success because the challenged policy appears to be materially indistinguishable from the Parole+ATD policy vacated in Florida — both in its purpose (reducing overcrowding at border patrol facilities) and manner of operation (releasing aliens into the country without first issuing a charging document placing them in immigration proceedings and simply directing the aliens to report to ICE within a specified period for further processing).

Wetherell added that crisis at the border is a “problem that is largely one of [the administration’s]own making through the adoption an implementation of policies that have encouraged the so-called ‘irregular migration’ that has become fairly regular over the past 2 years.”

Moody said:

“We took swift action to protect the American people from Biden’s unlawful plan to release thousands of illegal immigrants when Title 42 lifts in an hour.

“I am grateful for the quick decision by the federal judge.”
