18 US States filed lawsuit to stop President Obama's immigration executive action

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced that Sunshine State would join a federal lawsuit to block President Barack Obama's executive action sparing as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation.

Other states joining are Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Of the 18 states now suing the Obama administration over immigration, all have Republican governors or Republican attorneys general. But Florida is the only major swing state with a significant Hispanic population, making Bondi's decision a potential presidential campaign issue as the 2016 election cycle gets underway.

“The President is abdicating his responsibility to faithfully enforce laws that were duly enacted by Congress and attempting to rewrite immigration laws, which he has no authority to do — something the President himself has previously admitted,” Texas Attorney General Greg said in a statement.

“President Obama’s actions violate the Take Care Clause of the U.S. Constitution and the Administrative Procedure Act, which were intended to protect against this sort of executive disregard of the separation of powers.

 Obama and Democrats argue that he has the executive authority to prioritize deportations and stop them for certain types of undocumented immigrants. In announcing the plan last month, Obama pointed out that Republican presidents such as Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush also issued similar, though smaller, orders.

In this case, Obama said those eligible are unlawful immigrants who have been in the country for five years, have not committed serious crimes and who were the parents of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents.

Obama also expanded a 2012 law called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, that allows young people brought to this country illegally by their parents to stay in the United States and get work permits.

    1. You fucking stupid cunt, there is no relationship between legal and illegal immigrants. Two are different things. Stop whining about why he is taking executive action on illegals and not on legals. These two issues has to be dealt separately. Illegal immigrants can add fuel to US economy if made legal, but you cunts do not yet.

    4. Yes you are right. A person should not use such rude language. Thats why I came back and apologizing for my rude language. I AM SORRY. It is just that I am so pissed off from seeing other peoples reaction on the executive action and other immigration policies. I myself is waiting for last 3 years to get my EB3 Visa. Everyone here is waiting. All I am trying to say is it does not matter if OBAMA is sued for his executive actions or not. Rather we should try to raise voice and solve our problems. Stopping the executive action will not help us.

    5. the person above has no idea what is he talking about. everything is relative to the other. he only cares about mexicans because he wants the vote, who cares about legal immigrant? big corps like microsoft/google/banks which hires a bunch of indians --> EB visa. which party do these big corps sponsor, republicans. it's the whole democratic party's fault, not obama's. he is just another idiot trying to make something before he gets out of the white house, so that he can make some retirement money by going for talks about his idiotic reforms.
