Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody announced Thursday that she had uncovered lies the Biden administration told the Supreme Court in battling red states over its extreme open-borders policy.
According to The Capitolist, a Tallahassee-based right-leaning news website, President Joe Biden’s Justice Department told the high court that it is a longstanding federal policy to release illegal immigrants into the heart of the country if detention facilities reach capacity.
Moody, however, uncovered Department of Homeland Security memos, issued during the Obama administration, when Biden was vice president, that showed that was false.
The DHS memos, written in 2014 and 2015, show federal officials say a lack of detention space is not sufficient reason “to parole an inadmissible alien.”
“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,” said Moody, The Capitolist reported.
“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 got the records while arguing Florida’s point in a lawsuit brought by Texas and Missouri. The states sued the administration after it ended the “remain in Mexico” policy implemented by former President Donald Trump. The policy required illegal apprehended at the border to be sent back to Mexico until their cases were adjudicated.
The Capitolist noted that the other Biden administration lie that Moody found came after DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress.
He claimed to lawmakers that “the Biden administration’s unlawful policies are not contributing to the influx of unvetted migrants,” The Capitolist reported. Yet, “Moody uncovered an internal document debunking that claim.”
“The DHS document shows that the Biden administration has knowledge that its policies are encouraging mass migration.”
