  • Seventeen States to Sue Government over Immigration Executive Orders


    Texas leads coalition of states in lawsuit against Obama immigration actions


    Source: FoxNews

    Texas Gov.-elect Greg Abbott announced Wednesday that Texas is leading a 17-state coalition suing the Obama administration over the president's executive actions on immigration.

    The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Texas on Wednesday, and names the heads of the top immigration enforcement agencies as defendants.

    Abbott, in a news conference in Austin, said the "broken" immigration system should be fixed by Congress, not by "presidential fiat."

    He said President Obama's recently announced executive actions -- a move designed to spare as many as 5 million people living illegally in the United States from deportation -- "directly violate the fundamental promise to the American people" by running afoul of the Constitution.

    "The ability of the president to dispense with laws was specifically considered and unanimously rejected at the Constitutional Convention," he said.
