CA6 Reverses Enforcement Memo Injunction: Arizona v. Biden

July 06, 2022 (1 min read)

Arizona v. Biden

"In September 2021, the Secretary of Homeland Security issued a memorandum to his deputies outlining the Department’s immigration enforcement priorities and policies. Arizona, Montana, and Ohio filed this lawsuit in the Southern District of Ohio to enjoin its implementation. The district court issued a “nationwide preliminary injunction,” applicable to all 50 States, blocking the Department from relying on the priorities and policies in the memorandum in making certain arrest, detention, and removal decisions. Our court granted the National Government’s request for a stay pending appeal and ordered expedited briefing and argument. We now reverse the district court’s grant of preliminary injunctive relief."
