Florida's lawsuit against the Biden administration over its so-called “catch-and-release” policy advanced Wednesday, with a federal judge saying that Biden's policies have turned the southern border into “little more than a speedbump” for illegal immigrants.

 

In September 2021, the state of Florida sued the Biden administration over its “illegal” catch-and-release policies saying they cause harm to the state's “quasi-sovereign interests,” while claiming officials are either in violation of federal immigration law, or simply abusing their authority. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody filed the suit against the administration as part of a joint effort with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to “uphold the rule of law despite the Biden administration's decision to violate the law.”
