Texas Governor elect Greg Abbott is at the forefront of a 17-state effort to sue the Obama administration for its unconstitutional executive action on immigration.
Abbott said Obama’s action strikes at the heart of the Constitution, specifically the “take care clause” in Article 2, Section 3 which states the president “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”
“The President’s unilateral executive action tramples the U.S. Constitution’s Take Care Clause and federal law. The Constitution’s Take Care Clause limits the President’s power and ensures that he will faithfully execute Congress’s laws – not rewrite them under the guise of ‘prosecutorial discretion,’” Abbott said.
“The ability of the president to dispense with laws was specifically considered and unanimously rejected at the Constitutional Convention,” he added.
The Texas Attorney General said the Obama administration has also violated the Administrative Procedure Act.
