I have a feeling Obama ain’t gonna be too happy with Texas. Uhm. Again.
Update from the Houston Chronicle:
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen late Monday ruled in favor of Texas and 25 other states that challenged President Obama’s executive action on immigration, according to a statement from Gov. Greg Abbott.
Check back for updates. Abbott’s statement is below:
AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today released the following statement regarding the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas’ decision on the lawsuit filed by a Texas-led coalition of 26 states challenging President Obama’s executive action on immigration:
“President Obama abdicated his responsibility to uphold the United States Constitution when he attempted to circumvent the laws passed by Congress via executive fiat, and Judge Hanen’s decision rightly stops the President’s overreach in its tracks. We live in a nation governed by a system of checks and balances, and the President’s attempt to by-pass the will of the American people was successfully checked today. The District Court’s ruling is very clear — it prevents the President from implementing the policies in ‘any and all aspects.’ “
