禁令由地区法官 Kathleen Cardone 下达, 谁在八月. 3 granted a request by the 司法部 for a temporary restraining order against Abbott’s move. 限制令, which was set to expire Friday, was seen as an initial victory for the 拜登政府.
In her ruling Thursday, Cardone wrote that Abbott’s order “seems to do little to protect public health despite its purported motivations.”
Cardone had noted the Justice Department was likely to prevail on its claim that the order violates the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause because it conflicts with federal immigration law and “directly regulates the federal government’s operations.”
