Washington–Congressman Mike Conaway (TX-11) joined 112 Members of the House and Senate to sign an amicus brief in the lawsuit brought against the Obama Administration by the State of Texas challenging the constitutionality of the President’s illegal amnesty plan.

“The President disregarded the Constitution when he implemented his illegal amnesty plan last year,” said Congressman Conaway. “As a result, the State of Texas stepped up to lead a lawsuit against the Administration to stop the President’s executive action from becoming our nation’s new immigration policy. The President himself said over 20 times that he did not have the authority to act on immigration in the manner that he ultimately did, and in February, a U.S. District Court agreed and halted implementation of the President’s executive action. I’m confident that the courts will continue to find the President’s actions illegal and unconstitutional as this suit moves forward.”
