Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott is leading the charge at the Supreme Court to challenge the Obama administration’s immigration policies, which he and other states allege is rewriting of the U.S. Constitution related to immigration.
Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott said that the U.S. Constitution will be “completely rewritten” if the Supreme Court sides with President Obama in the lawsuit challenging his executive action on immigration.
Abbott, formerly the state’s longest-serving attorney general, told reporters Thursday morning that the lawsuit brought against the president by Texas and 25 other states is “framed under” the issue of immigration but in reality challenges Obama’s use of executive power to “unilaterally” rewrite laws.
