Cruz and Other Lawmakers File Amicus Brief In Amnesty Lawsuit

Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn of Texas, along with 66 other senators and representatives, have filed an amicus brief in the lawsuit filed Dec. 3rd in a Texas federal district court by Texas Attorney General (and governor-elect) Greg Abbott. The lawsuit seeks a preliminary injunction against Obama’s amnesty edict, asserting that his executive action is unconstitutional since only Congress has authority to make laws.

U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen has scheduled a hearing for Jan. 9 in the federal court in Brownsville, Texas.
