    Florida's lawsuit against the Biden administration over its so-called "catch-and-release" policy advanced Wednesday, with a federal judge
    saying that Biden's policies have turned the southern border into
    "little more than a speedbump" for illegal immigrants.


    Wetherell's order states that the Biden administration has "adopted and
    are implementing policies that contravene explicit mandates and
    restrictions in the immigration statutes and that the policies have
    effectively turned the southern border into little more than a
    speedbump for the hundreds of thousands of aliens who have flooded
    across the border into the country since January 2021 and the thousands
    more who are arriving at the border daily."

    Wetherell wrote that the court was unconvinced that the Biden
    administration has "unfettered discretion to determine how (or if) to
    comply with the immigration statutes and that there is nothing that
    Florida or this Court can do about their policies even if they
    contravene the immigration statutes."

    He called the Biden administration's policy "as remarkable as it is
    wrong" because no one is above the law, including the president.

    "Thus, if Florida’s allegations that Defendants are essentially
    flaunting the immigration laws are proven to be true, the Court most
    certainly can (and will) do something about it," the judge's opinion
