Recently I noted that there were 16 States suing over Obama’s unilateral executive amnesty. Now…
(Fox News Latino by way of AP) Four more states have joined a Texas-led coalition suing the Obama administration over executive action on immigration.
The addition of Arkansas, Michigan, North Dakota and Oklahoma brings to 24 the number of states fighting the order in a federal district court in Brownsville.
Announced last month, the president’s unilateral move is designed to spare millions of people living illegally in the United States from deportation. But the lawsuit accuses the White House of “trampling” the U.S. Constitution.
Along with Texas, we have Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
I have a recommendation: all the states that do not want to sue can have all the illegals. Let them pay for the cost. California and New York are states that apparently love illegals, and a good chunk end up in those states. They can have them if they want to go along with Obama’s supposed executive action. Why supposed? I also mentioned that the Executive Orders he supposedly signed still do not seem to exist
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., a leading opponent of President Obama’s move to provide amnesty for up to 5 million illegal immigrants, expressed astonishment Monday and ridiculed the administration for not carrying out the action through an executive order.
In remarks made at the Washington office of the government-watchdog group Judicial Watch, Sessions said: “I guess they just whispered in the ear of (DHS Director) Jeh Johnson over at Homeland Security, ‘Just put out a memo. That way we don’t have to enforce the law.’”
The news that Obama had not signed an executive order to carry out the policy he announced to the nation in a televised address Nov. 20 was broken by WND Senior Staff Writer Jerome Corsi last week.
He doesn’t actually need an EO, just a bunch of memos directing agencies to, well, fail to follow federal law, to enforce the law, in order to be sued. Remember, though, that he made a Big Deal out of saying he was doing this through Executive action.
