The United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on Tuesday in the lawsuit against the Joe Biden government's immigrant arrest and deportation priorities, which focus on aliens who pose a risk to national security.

Supreme Court justices will consider the lawsuit filed by Texas and Louisiana to stop the implementation of the Biden Administration's priority guide, which asks Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to

focus their efforts detention of immigrants who pose a threat to national security.

The guidance issued in September 2021 by the Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, was blocked by the ruling of a Texas federal judge.

The ruling was ratified by the fifth circuit of appeals, for which the Biden Government took the legal battle to the highest court last July.

Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, an immigration expert at the American Immigration Council, described the lawsuit on his Twitter account today as "a great case" that will be heard by the Supreme Court.

“Not only will it have potentially big ramifications for immigration enforcement but it could reshape the way states and private parties sue the government (over immigration),” he added.

The case centers on a ruling by Judge Drew Tipton of the Southern District of Texas, appointed by now former President Donald Trump (2017-2021), which

keeps the application of the priorities

on hold despite the fact that federal statute explicitly establishes that the secretary of Homeland Security "shall be responsible" for "establishing national immigration enforcement policies and priorities."

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued similar memos establishing enforcement priorities in 2005, 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2017, the year Trump became president.

The priority guide issued by Mayorkas focuses ICE efforts on immigrants who pose a risk to the country's security, including people convicted of serious crimes.

For his part, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has argued in his lawsuit that aliens with a final order of deportation are criminals who should be removed from the country.
