From: Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds

Gov. Kim Reynolds released the following statement in response to a federal district court judge granting an injunction of Iowa’s illegal immigration law:  

“With this injunction states are left defenseless to the ongoing crisis at our southern border. Plainly, the Biden administration is failing to do their job and enforce federal immigration laws allowing millions to enter and re-enter without any consequence or delay. I signed this bill into law to protect Iowans and our communities from the results of this border crisis: rising crime, overdose deaths, and human trafficking. I support Attorney General Bird in appealing this decision.”
