US: Majority of states now part of immigration lawsuit

Tuesday, 27 January 2015

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that Tennessee and Nevada have officially joined the multi-state coalition led by Texas to block President Barack Obama’s recent executive action on immigration according to a news release sent out Monday.

The addition of these two states brings the total to 26, representing more than half the states in the Union.

“Texas is proud to lead a coalition that now includes a majority of the United States standing up against the President’s rogue actions,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “The momentum against the President’s lawlessness continues to build with Tennessee and Nevada joining the effort to protect our states from the economic and public safety implications of illegal amnesty.”

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.
