Brian Harrison, former chief of staff of the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) during the Trump administration, filed a lawsuit on Monday against the Biden administration for their open border policies.
The lawsuit argues that the Biden administration’s decision to undo an order known as Title 42 Order, which stated that a temporary suspension of migrations from Mexico and Canada was necessary amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic to protect the public health, violates the Administrative Procedure Act. The Administrative Procedure Act requires that policy changes are justified by government agencies.
Part of the Title 42 Order was essentially suspended on Feb. 11, when illegal immigrant minors under the age of 18 were allowed into the U.S., Harrison, who is also running for a congressional seat in Texas, noted.
"The Biden Administration’s reckless and illegal pursuit of open border policies has created a public health and humanitarian crisis," Harrison said in a statement. "Today I am standing up for Texas and America by suing to force them to obey the law and secure the border."

Without any real debate — without congressional hearings, new legislation, or anything more than a series of executive orders — President Biden has effectively put in place a complete open-border policy on the southwest border. All he had to do was signal, with the stroke of a pen, that if you can get into the US, you can probably stay.
Predictably, illegal immigration surged. But so did legal admissions of asylum-seekers who had been barred from entering the country under stricter Trump-era policies and pandemic border security measures.

A Federal Judge shot down a Biden Executive Order last month. I believe it was border security related. If Biden had his way, all of our borders would be wide open. Amazing how naïve a 78 year old man can be, isn't it?
