Texas To Sue Obama
[su_right_ad]Governor-elect Greg Abbott has vowed to sue the president over his executive action on immigration.
After President Barack Obama announced his order Nov. 21 Abbott vowed “swift action,” then suggested last week that a lawsuit was coming soon.
It’s Abbott’s first major issue since his easy victory to succeed Gov. Rick Perry, who’s also clamored for a lawsuit.
Obama’s actions are designed to spare from deportation nearly 5 million people living illegally in the United States. Abbott says Texas has unique standing because of the outsize impact the order would have on it.
Abbott already has sued 30 times since Obama took office.[su_csky_ad]
