"This issue in this lawsuit is not about immigration, the issue in this lawsuit is about abuse of executive power," Texas Gov.-elect Greg Abbott said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "And if this abuse is not stopped, it will erode the constitution that has attracted people to this country for generations."
"It's the Constitution itself that is under assault by the president of the United States by this executive order," Mr. Abbott told NBC's "Meet the Press" this weekend. "This lawsuit is not about immigration. The issue in this lawsuit is abuse of executive power."
