Tennessee Joins Lawsuit Against Obama Amnesty

Tennessee on Monday  became the 25th state to join the lawsuit pending in federal court in Texas that seeks to stop President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. Tenn. Attorney General Herbert Slatery, in a statement announcing the decision, said his state “cannot sit on the sidelines of this case, when unlawful directives of this magnitude grant lawful presence and other rights like work permits to such a large number.”

Slatery’s announcement was lauded by Republican Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey: “Barack Obama tossed aside not just public opinion but key tenets of our constitutional democracy when he bypassed Congress to grant illegal immigrants de facto amnesty. I’m proud that Tennessee will be among the states standing up to this truly shocking display of executive arrogance.”
