MIAMI.– He JUDGES federal court Drew B. Tipton decided that the parties in the litigation of the permanence or not of PAROLE said Joe Biden They have until Friday, October 27, as the deadline to counter the final arguments, which, on the one hand and on the other, seem strong enough for this trial to be classified as a “battle of the titans ” which was recently published in DIARIO ANG AMERIKA.
The order indicates that on September 29, 2023, the parties will present proposals of Fact and Conclusions of Law with citations on file at judgments.
They will also include memoranda addressing issues where the Court has requested additional information or anything the parties consider fundamental to their procedures. But the story does not end there and there is another day to complete the file.
Judge Drew B Tipton added a twist to the final phase of the trial in response to a lawsuit from 20 states over the notification of PAROLE humanitarian aid from last January that allows citizens of Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela to enter the United States with the support of a sponsor.
After that date at the end of September, the judge ordered that no later than October 27, 2023, the parties may present other answers or arguments that address any issue they consider important to add to the conclusions of fact, to be added to the post. – legal memorandum of the trial.
This means that the permanence or not of the humanitarian program for the citizens of these countries will be known after October 27, a decision that must be made by the judge and that may last until the end of the year. As pointed out, if the judge rules against the program, appeals will begin and people who travel or have already been approved will not be harmed by a legal action of this kind. However, the judge showed his reservations when it came to temporarily suspending the program as requested by the complaining Republican states.
Arguments from each other at trial
Joe’s government Biden must go before the judge with a clearer position about the effectiveness of PAROLE and show that it responds to a humanitarian criterion and not to a visa program as stated by the complainants, who question that these people entered the country for the sole reason of being citizens of the preferred countries, which almost the only requirement is that they have a sponsor
By adding a box to petitions about humanitarian reasons that the sponsor must explain, the Biden administration can demonstrate that these are truly humanitarian reasons. Likewise, government defenders alleged that “all security clichés” have been met.
On the side of the 20 complainants who say, they must show in numbers the cost that this immigration initiative and the heavy public burden means for the country.
At the same time, the states criticized that despite this plan, illegal immigration continues to grow and is out of control, while the government says the opposite, although the border patrol shows another reality.
There is a fundamental question that the Judge asked and on which the Biden administration should base its defense. Is the fact that someone is living in poverty considered an urgent humanitarian need? “I don’t think so,” replied Elissa Fudim, a Justice Department lawyer defending the government.
The plaintiffs are the states of Texas, Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.
