It called for a 100-day pause in deportations, according to an email obtained by Fox News.

"Tucker Carlson Tonight" has since obtained an internal email sent Thursday to ICE officers in Texas that shows how the order was enacted, according to reports.

"As of midnight tonight, stop all removals," the email reads. 

"This includes Mexican bus runs, charter flights and commercial removals (until further notice) ... all cases are to be considered [no significant likelihood of removal in foreseeable future]."

"Release them all, immediately. No sponsor available is not acceptable any longer."

The Department of Homeland Security released a memo outlining the categories of immigration offenders who will continue to be subject to arrest and eventual removal.

Migrants who arrived at the border after November 1, 2020, will still be deported. 

Immigrants already in the U.S. who pose a national security or public safety risk including anyone convicted of an "aggravated felony" are also a top priority under the new department-wide guidance, the Daily Mail reports.
