Miami. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody this Monday announced the presentation of “damaging evidence” in a lawsuit against US President Joe Biden’s administration over the border crisis and its “disastrous” immigration policies.
Moody’s legal team presented evidence before the federal court for the Northern District of Florida where the lawsuit filed in 2021 is being heard.
The Biden administration knew, just eight days after taking office, that its immigration policies were “creating an enormous public safety crisis,” Moody’s said in a statement today.
Florida’s attorney general says many of the emails were “previously intercepted” by the US Department of Homeland Security. (DHS) includes conversations with Commissioners of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), confirming the “destruction of immigration structures” created by Donald Trump during his presidency (2017-2021).
A situation that, according to Moody, left the US Border Patrol (USBP) “with no other option” but to release nearly all immigrants found at the border.
According to the lawsuit, since March 2021 the patrol has released nearly one million immigrants at the country’s southwest border, 105,000 of them in a single month.
Moody’s said the messages now presented as evidence indicate that the increase in illegal immigrants due to Biden’s immigration policies will “immediately overwhelm” federal detention capacity.
The US Department of Justice “required” the emails to the State of Florida, however, Florida “withheld evidence” and needed litigation to access these messages.
“Biden’s willingness to hide evidence and lie to the American people about the border crisis he created is deeply troubling,” Moody said.
The Attorney General’s legal team today presented “evidence” in the case against the Biden administration in a court in the Northern District of Florida.
“The message is just one piece in a pile of explosive evidence discovered” that includes “statements from DHS officials, memos instructing the USP to withdraw upon border crossing, among other points.”
Biden this Sunday visited the Las Americas bridge, which connects the city of El Paso, Texas, to Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, during his first trip to the border in his two-year term.
Biden’s visit comes days after his administration announced new immigration restrictions amid criticism of his management and at a time when people from countries such as Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela surged across the border. Is. efe
