AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Gov.-elect Greg Abbott is again vowing to sue the Obama administration for lifting the threat of deportation from millions of immigrants living illegally in the United States.

The Dallas Morning News reports (https://bit.ly/1xnHZt6) that Abbott called the president’s executive action “the epitome of lawlessness” while appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.

As Texas attorney general, Abbott has sued the Obama administration about 30 times, mostly over environmental regulations and the White House’s signature health care law.

He and outgoing Gov. Rick Perry said last week that Texas would likely sue Obama over immigration.

Abbott said Sunday that Obama’s order violated the U.S. Constitution. He said it dispensed “with the immigration law as it currently exists and is rewriting that law.”
