Under the guise of preventing illegal aliens from crossing the southern land border, the Biden Administration created a new blatantly unlawful program that will permit up to 360,000 aliens to be “paroled” into the United States every year—despite no authorization from Congress to do so and even though these aliens do not have visas. The new program actually allows aliens in their home countries to obtain the benefit of securing advance approval to enter the United States—despite no other basis in law for them doing so (i.e., these are not visas).
Partnering with Texas and 20 other states, AFL filed a lawsuit and a motion for preliminary injunction against the Biden Administration. Together with lawyers from the Texas Attorney General’s Office, AFL attorneys argued the case at the trial held on August 24 and 25, 2023, and helped draft the post-trial briefs.
The district court’s decision is pending.
