TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida Attorney General Ashley said the office uncovered documents showing the Biden Administration misrepresented the facts to the U.S. Supreme Court about reasons for releasing undocumented immigrants into the United States.
Moody said the U.S. Department of Justice claimed in briefs made before SCOTUS in Biden v. Texas that it is longstanding federal policy to use detention capacity as a reason to release illegal immigrants into the country. However, Moody said they found documents proving that is not true.
In U.S. Department of Homeland Security memos from 2014 and 2015, federal officials said that lack of detention space is not an appropriate reason “to parole an inadmissible alien,” according to Moody.
“First, Secretary Mayorkas made misrepresentations to Congress. Now, DOJ did so to SCOTUS. It seems there is no limit to what Biden officials will say or do in the furtherance of unlawful policies designed to destroy our southern border and weaken our national security,” Moody said.
The Florida Attorney General’s office found the documents while continuing litigation against the Biden Administration to stop the crisis at the border.
Moody said previously the Biden administration claimed its policies are not contributing to the influx of unvetted migrants, but the Florida Attorney General uncovered an internal document debunking that claim.

“The very fact that my office, through litigation efforts to rein in this out-of-control administration, has already uncovered two falsehoods by the Executive Branch to the Legislative and Judicial branches of our nation’s government is shocking. If the Biden administration is willing to mislead co-equal branches of our U.S. government, what aren’t they willing to say to the American public?” Moody said.
Moody sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland outlining the most recently believed false statement sent to SCOTUS.
The letter highlights statements from DOJ briefs in Biden v. Texas, as well as oral argument presented before SCOTUS in April. Florida joined an amicus brief in support of Texas in the litigation involving Biden’s rescission of the Remain in Mexico policy.
