AUSTIN -- Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today filed a response with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas in Brownsville opposing the Obama Administration’s motion to stay the court’s ruling on the President’s executive action on immigration.

“Not only is the President ignoring the rule of law outright, he is unilaterally granting legal status, work authorizations and other benefits to more than 4 million individuals in this country illegally,” Attorney General Paxton said. “An action of this magnitude is beyond any president’s authority and, if allowed to proceed, would inevitably cause irreparable harm to our state, imposing hundreds of millions of dollars in costs on Texas. Further, as the court has already pointed out, once President Obama initiates this action, it will be practically impossible to undo. The court properly halted the Obama Administration’s unlawful action, and the defendants’ request for a stay should be denied.”

The federal district court granted a preliminary injunction on February 16, enjoining in full President Barack Obama’s executive action.

Texas leads a 26-state bipartisan coalition fighting the President’s attempt to unilaterally grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. Joining Texas in the lawsuit are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin.
