Court Mandates Joe Biden to Proceed with Border Wall

( – A federal court has stopped President Joe Biden from having his way with previously Congressionally-approved funds allotted for the building of additional walls along the U.S.’ southern border.

Following a temporary injunction he issued to the federal government to stop the Biden administration from reappropriating border wall funds for other purposes, Judge Drew Tipton issued a ruling ordering the federal government to use the funds for their intended purpose – to build more border walls. Congress approved the allocation in 2019. However, one of Biden’s first acts when he assumed the presidency was to halt all border wall construction – which was, in turn, one of the significant projects of former president Donald Trump.

The action triggered lawsuits from states like Missouri and Texas.

According to Judge Tipton’s ruling, the federal government is “ENJOINED and RESTRAINED” from using the border wall funds for any purpose other than the construction of new walls. Tipon also said that the preliminary injunction against any efforts of the federal government to redirect the funds will remain in effect unless overturned by an appeals court or the U.S. Supreme Court.

However, Tipon – who was appointed by former president Donald Trump – sided with the government on the issue of Biden’s immigrant parole policies. Several U.S. states, Texas included, have opposed the Biden administration’s policy, which allows a number of immigrants to be flown directly into the U.S. and be given temporary resident visas upon their arrival. The government currently allows up to 30,000 migrants from Cuba, Venezuela, Haiti, and Nicaragua to qualify for the program. The quota refreshes monthly, and has seen more than 386,000 such migrants be allowed into the U.S. over the past year.

According to Tipton’s decision, Texas and other states failed to prove that the program was harmful to them, giving them no standing to challenge the policy in federal court.
