Biden to Sue Iowa for Upholding Federal Law

Timothy Birdnow

So, Joe Biden says he can't enforce the border because he doesn't have enough money, and he's demonizing Republicans for voting against the so-called "bipartisan bill" that would give him tons of money for processing illegal aliens. One of the big problems, he says, is that he doesn't have "the tools" to do his job.

So why is he suing in court to block Iowa from doing the job for him?

If it were a matter of resources as he claims he would welcome help from the states. But instead he's wasting money and time to stop a state from doing the work Joe Biden Just Won't Do.

From the Epoch Times article:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed the lawsuit at a court in Des Moines, Iowa, on May 9, seeking to challenge Senate File 2340 under provisions of the U.S. Constitution that assign the federal government the authority to regulate immigration and manage border-related matters.

"Iowa cannot disregard the U.S. Constitution and settled Supreme Court precedent,” Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Brian Boynton, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division, said in a statement. "We have brought this action to ensure that Iowa adheres to the framework adopted by Congress and the Constitution for regulation of immigration.”
Iowa’s law, which was signed by Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds on April 10, would make it a crime for someone to be in Iowa if they have outstanding deportation orders, or if they had been denied admission to Iowa, or if they had previously been deported from the United States.

When Ms. Reynolds signed the bill, she said the law—slated to take effect on July 1—was prompted by the Biden administration’s alleged failure to enforce immigration laws.

"The Biden Administration has failed to enforce our nation’s immigration laws, putting the protection and safety of Iowans at risk,” Ms. Reynolds said at the time. "Those who come into our country illegally have broken the law, yet Biden refuses to deport them.”

So Biden won't enforce the law and he'll fight tooth-and-nail to stop someone else from enforcing it too.

Why, it's almost as if he WANTS hordes of illegal aliens coming in!

Congress controls immigration, not the President. Laws passed by CONGRESS are supposed to be obeyed. Mr. Biden has taken it upon himself to waive those laws. He has written a new immigration law.

Yet here he is imposing his new law on the individual states, which have an absolute right to enforce laws duly passed by Congress. Also, the Constitution makes it quite plain that the states may defend themselves as they sit fit in times of invasion, which is clearly what is happening here. And don't get me started on the Tenth Amendment which says all powers not EXPRESSLY granted to the United States are reserved to the states or the People. Control of illegal aliens into the heartland is not a power expressly and solely granted to the United States.

That Joe Biden would push this despite the fact immigration is killing him at the polls shows someone else is making American policy, someone not accountable to the electorate.
