Texas Gov.-elect Greg Abbott didn’t mince words while reacting to President Obama’s executive action that grants amnesty to roughly 5 million illegals, saying simply in a tweeted message: I’m going to sue.
His words: “Pres. Obama has circumvented Congress and bypassed the will of the American people. I am prepared to immediately challenge this in court.”
Mr. Abbott also said in a statement shortly after Mr. Obama’s announced action that the president was “eroding the very foundation of our nation’s Constitution and bestowing a legacy of lawlessness,” The Blaze reported.
He went on: “Texans have witnesses firsthand the costs and consequences caused by President Obama’s dictatorial immigration policy and now we must work together toward a solution in fixing our broken immigration system. … I am prepared to immediately challenge President Obama in court, securing our state’s sovereignty and guaranteeing the rule of law as it was intended under the Constitution.”
