Arizona and Montana Take Legal Action Against Biden Administration
The Biden administration says that the rules don’t impair arresting or deporting people, but the officers in the field would need to request permission from their superiors to arrest people outside of the aforementioned cases.
"If asked about the poorest political option I've seen in government, this would be a strong contender," Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement. "Blindly releasing thousands of people, including convicted criminals and those who may spread COVID-19 into our state, is unreasonable and violates federal law. This must stop now to avoid a grave humanitarian crisis for immigrants and Arizona residents."
