Behind The Poll:
An order made by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas would effectively halt the deportation of illegal immigrants, including those convicted of crimes.
In response, the Attorney Generals from Arizona, Montana, and Ohio have filed suit against the Biden administration to block the order. They are seeking the court to declare Mayorkas’ order as illegal.
“On September 30, 2021, in a brazen display of contempt for Congress’s statutory commands, Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced a policy that abandons DHS’s duties to enforce or implement entire swaths of immigration law,” they write in the complaint.
