TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Attorney General Ashley Moody is releasing new evidence highlighting “intentionally weak immigration enforcement” by the Biden administration.
The Florida Attorney General’s Office released a video of ICE Executive Associate Director Corey Price’s deposition as part of litigation the office is conducting against the Biden administration to enforce public-safety immigration laws.
Price testified the following under oath:
- ICE is removing more than seven times fewer inadmissible immigrants than the agency did in 2012.
- ICE is booking-in roughly half the number of immigrants it did during the Trump administration.
- ICE is booking in roughly 40% the number of immigrants it did during the last border surge.
- Senior Biden officials knew its immigration priorities would cut enforcement in half, yet still implemented them.
Moody says the deposition provides even more proof that the Biden administration is intentionally under enforcing federal immigration law in a way that has never been seen.
“At every phase of the process, Biden is purposely failing to enforce the law and detain and remove inadmissible immigrants. Career ICE officials warned the administration that their reckless policies would drastically cut enforcement and still Biden continued to implement them—proving yet again, we only have Biden to blame for the border crisis and the surge in American deaths from Mexican fentanyl.”Attorney General Ashley Moody
The deposition is evidence in the case (3:21-cv-1066) and is currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida. The trial is set for January 2023.
Last year, Moody sued the Department of Homeland Security for allegedly failing to follow federal law and detain inadmissible immigrants intercepted at the border until they are repatriated to the country of their citizenship – as is required under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
According to federal documents provided to Florida during discovery, DHS disclosed that more than 48,000 illegal immigrants, who indicated intention to travel to Florida, failed to check in with ICE.
The Attorney General’s Office claims the federal government now has no idea of the immigrants’ location or activity – even though most of them are legally inadmissible.
It has been previously reported that Moody uncovered evidence that the federal government planned to “mass-release” migrants into the country upon an “overrun” of the Southern Border.
As of this week, reports show the number of migrant arrivals along the U.S.- Mexico border in fiscal year 2022 surpassed 2 million in August, setting a record for the all-time high driven in part by unprecedented levels of migration from Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, according to CBP data.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recorded 203,597 illegal crossings at the Southwest Land Border, as of August 2022.
