A non-profit organization called “Grassroots Leadership” challenged an emergency ruling that gave the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services the ability to issue special licenses to the detention centers to ensure they could remain active.
The appeals court also found the detainees did not have the standing to challenge the licensing rule because they could not show that undocumented immigrants would be held for longer periods of time in a licensed facility or would be held under dangerous conditions.
This includes two of the nation's largest Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention centers.
This emergency rule meant that neither of the two detention centers in Dilley and Karnes City was officially licensed by the State of Texas, but were given the emergency ability to house illegal aliens invading the United States of America.
Democrats have ranted for months on their desires to shut it down
, making today's ruling an enormous success for President Donald Trump's administration.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has praised the decision of the 3rd Court of Appeals Justice David Puryear.
“The appeals court’s dismissal of the lawsuit against Texas correctly recognizes that the challenge is really about one group’s disagreement with federal policy, and a state court can’t order the federal government to change federal policy,” AG Paxton said.
Justice Puryear wrote, “These activities are not sufficient to meet the test for individualized standing.”
A panel of three judges ultimately decided the fate of the efforts to stop the detention centers.
Mark one more victory for the White House in this extraordinary world of deceptive lawsuits by liberal elitists pushing open borders.
Whether the rest of the border states follow suit remains to be seen.
