Judge likely to extend hold on Biden's deportation pause until late February

A federal judge in Texas said Friday that he’ll likely extend his hold on the Biden administration’s deportation moratorium until February 23.

今週はじめ, Judge Drew Tipton of the Southern District of Texas, a Trump appointee, blocked the administration’s 100-day pause on deportations, delivering a blow to one of President Joe Biden’s first immigration actions.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, 共和党, had sued, leading to the first legal block of one of Biden’s executive actions.
Tipton initially blocked the administration from executing its deportation pause for 14 日々. The temporary restraining order, Tipton argued, was appropriate under the Administrative Procedure Act.
    But during a status conference on Friday, Tipton suggested he’d extend his block, as the case proceeds until February 23. The Justice Department could appeal the temporary restraining order, but didn’t indicate Friday whether it intended to do so.
