Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said that she is planning to take legal action against the Biden administration over new immigration regulations that Biden has put in place. Moody says that these “egregious” regulations are not in line with federal law.
During an interview with Fox News, Moody said, “I’ve been speaking for weeks now and alerting Americans to the fact that this administration is thumbing its nose to its responsibilities under federal law. It is required to deport criminal aliens that are here illegally and it is just saying we’re not going to do it anymore.”
“First, they canceled Operation Talon, which targeted sex offenders here in the United States illegally and now they’ve released guidance, which is basically releasing into our streets serious criminal offenders,” she added.
Operation Talon, a Trump administration program that targeted sex offenders living illegally in the US for deportation, was canceled last month by Biden.
Florida Attorney General Moody also said that Biden’s policies are releasing drug traffickers, home intruders, and violent felons with firearm charges into her state’s streets, which she plans to fight in federal court.
“I mean it is unbelievable, the folks that aren’t law enforcement leaders are required to release. My frustration has boiled over and we’re going to hold them accountable in federal court.”
