Multistate Coalition Sues over Immigration Order

Will Weissert, My Way, December 3, 2014

Texas is leading a 17-state coalition in suing over the Obama administration’s recently announced executive actions on immigration.

Many top Republicans have denounced President Barack Obama’s unilateral move designed to spare as many as 5 million people living illegally in the United States from deportation.

But Texas Gov.-elect Greg Abbott took it a step further Wednesday, filing a lawsuit in federal court in the Southern District of Texas. Texas is joined by 16 other, mostly southern and Midwestern states, including Alabama, Georgia, Idaho and Indiana.


Abbott argued Wednesday that Obama’s action “tramples” portions of the U.S. Constitution.

The lawsuit raises three objections: that Obama violated the “Take Care Clause” of the U.S. Constitution that limits the scope of presidential power; that the federal government violated rulemaking procedures; and that the order will “exacerbate the humanitarian crisis along the southern border, which will affect increased state investment in law enforcement, health care and education.”


The federal lawsuit involves the following states: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

    Heard many other states are looking to jump in on the fun. Of course, the one state that needs to do this more than any other state will never join in. Mexifornia.

    • SentryattheGate

      I notice that my state, Florida is not among them! I may go visit Sen.Marco Rubio and Rep.Ted Yoho tomorrow at an event honoring veterans. I find it disingenuous to say you care about veterans defending our nation and on the other hand, support the mass illegal invasion! OK, maybe Yoho isn’t as bad as Rubio, but he repeats that old cliche’ “we are the land of immigrants” and that he supports immigration!

      • Whitesneedtobebrave

        Rubio is a RINO and I bet he is a Castro plant within the Republican party. He even lied about when his parents came to the US saying that they came due to Castro, when they came in 1956 when Baptista was in power.

      • Reynardine

        Remember, we are a land of white Anglo-Saxon COLONISTS, not immigrants. Technically every land is a land of immigrants.

        • SentryattheGate

          Oh yes! As I’ve commented many times on this site; demographers say the the demographics of the US area had remained steady for >300 years, that being whites of European descent at 85-90% of the pop. and the remaining 10-15% split between blacks and Indians, UNTIL the 1965 Immigration Act opened US up to Third World immigration. I’ve informed Yoho about this and many other “inconvenient truths” re. immigration, legal and illegal.

  • Luca

    What Obama does is wrong on so many levels. But it’s okay, because he is our first black president and can do no wrong in the eyes of the liberal media.

  • ghettovalley

    I’m glad to see that my state representatives are getting involved. Amnesty won’t destroy us all at once, but it will be the terminal illness that eventually kills us from within. Five million doesn’t seem like much now, but three or four generations down the line it will be a different story. This is a death blow to America as we know it.

    • dmxinc

      It will not take 3 or 4 generations.

      Have you not read that each “child” can sponsor his family and then the extended family will be soon to follow, in addition, once the world knows they can come at will, millions more will be on the way.

      This is not 5 million, but possibly as many as a 100 million in as short as a decade or two.

    • Bossman

      Nobody knows the exact number but one thing that is for sure: They are already well integrated into American life by way of family and relatives. The death blow to America will happen only if Americans become too stupid and too weak to prevent billions of Asians from entering the country.

      • Nice try. Yes, Asian immigration will be a problem too. But right now, our biggest threat comes from south of the border. Whether Asian, Mexican, African, or Muslim immigration, they will all destroy us and erode our culture, replacing it with their third-world cultures.

      • Max

        BECOME too stupid and weak?

      • The Dude

        Not that I condone Asian immigration, but how are Asians exactly worse than Hispanics? If anything, it’s the opposite.

        • Bossman

          Because there are more of them than anybody else on earth and they are even more alien than so-called Hispanics.

          • The Dude

            Maybe more alien to you. Most of Eastern Europe has mongoloid genes and features.

          • me

            Sure, the barrio is as American as apple pie–right along with drug runners, gangs, quincineras, pedophiles, machete hackings of piled-up corpses in the streets, exclusionary neighborhoods, gang rapes for ‘territory’, communist mainstream groups, and Sante Dios Santaria. Wholesome family values….

          • Who Me?

            But Mexico is right next door. They are much closer and more of a threat. All anyone has to do is walk across a few miles of desert to invade the United States from Mexico. And of course, right below Mexico is a whole continent of “Hispanics” of one flavor or another. Most of the “Hispanics” or “Latinos” that wish to mooch off the United States illegally are of short, squat, dark, Amer-Indian peasant stock, Aztec-Maya-Quchoa derivative. These people are just as alien as Asians, if not more so. They are already overwhelming us. Why would you want more of them here? As far as I’m concerned the only Hispanics that belong in the United States are the ones who were living along the borderlands when those borders were re-drawn after the war with Mexico and included them.

          • Bossman

            These “short,squat,dark” American Indians are able to mix well with white people. Their mixed descendants can go on to win the Miss Universe Contest.

        • Reynardine

          There’s really a good deal of social amplification in place with Hispanics, so you see their bad natures here in the US more frequently. In areas of Asian Domination (Hawaii, California), you see them reverting to the old ways: corruption, gun-running, drugs, twisted medicinal cures, and not speaking English.

      • ricpic

        Integrated into American life? They speak spanish except in the rare instances when they must speak english. They refer to “My country” as Mexico or Nicaragua or Ecuador etcetera. They make no bones about their hostility to the gringo. Same in the fourth American generation as in the first.

      • me

        You are a misinformed, low-intelligence commenter. Every time you post a comment, it goes against all logic and self-interest. If the Mestizos are so ‘integrated’, why do we have bilingual ‘Spanish’ everywhere? Why do Mestizos wave the Mexican flag at their parades, and scream for unlawful ‘amnesty’ for other law-breakers? Why do communistic political organizations like La Raza and El Conquenesta exist? Why do we have these oompa loompas protesting the display of the US flag anywhere, even on the clothing of high school students? Why do these squat-monsters want to socialize everything–including their costs of food, clothing, and shelter–for themselves, at the expense of the US taxpayer? Is that the way of our culture? Why do the Mestizos insist on bilingual classrooms, free college for their children, and ‘special’ status for being a ‘minority’, when they’re lawbreakers and criminals? Is that our culture? If they want to ‘integrate’ so badly, why do they not follow immigration laws that have been enforced for decades?

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      Our most populous state, California, was shabbily destroyed by the 1986 amnesty, and that was less than 5 million. As soon as the welfare starts flowing in earnest, fertility explodes.

  • If their lawsuit is successful? Obama will just ignore the judges. Because pen and phone.

    • libertarian1234

      And even if he doesn’t is a judicial decision enough to reverse an amnesty order, because SS numbers, driver’s licenses, etc would have already been issued?

      The community organizer is doing as he planned all along which is to water down the white power structure any way he can. He’s having the time of his life upsetting whitey at every turn.

      If he’s going to be curtailed or stopped at all it has to be now. And it will take some in-your-face brutal action to do so.

      And the only one in the GOP who is capable of that is Ted Cruz, but he can’t do it alone.

      These are dark times for this country.

      • MBlanc46

        “If he’s going to be curtailed or stopped at all it has to be now. And it will take some in-your-face brutal action to do so.”

        No one in the Repub party is capable of doing that, nor should we expect them to. The only in-your-face action that will mean anything would be tens or hundreds of thousands of Americans taking to the streets and public squares.

    • MBlanc46

      The only real way to stop him is impeachment and removal from office, but that is not part of our political tradition.

  • Extropico

    “Many top Republicans have denounced President Barack Obama’s unilateral move designed to spare as many as 5 million people living illegally in the United States from deportation.”

    Au contraire, this is just one small dose of a planned rolling amnesty from our rulers that will minoritize Americans from sea to shining sea. A metaphoric bite from a black mamba would be less toxic to democracy and the rule of law.

  • Vito Powers

    Color me cynical, but I smell more GOP theatrics. Only two of the seventeen governors are Democrats, the rest are Republicans. These governors only realized the social and financial costs of Illegal Immigration when Obama issued his Executive Order?

    No, Republicans just love to give the illusion that they’re confronting Obama on this. Why doesn’t the House simply begin Impeachment hearings? I thought Boenher & Company are devout worshippers of the Constitution.

    • Vito Powers

      Here’s a list of the 17 governors. Only 2 are Democrats, the rest are Republicans.

      Alabama, Robert Bentley

      Georgia, Nathan Deal

      Idaho, Butch Otter

      Indiana, Mike Pence

      Kansas, Sam Brownback

      Louisiana, Bobby Jindal

      Maine, Paul LePage

      Mississippi, Phil Bryant

      Montana, Steve Bullock (D)

      Nebraska, Dave Heineman

      North Carolina, Pat McCrory

      South Carolina, Nikki Haley

      South Dakota, Dennis Daugaard

      Texas, Rick Perry

      Utah, Gary Herbert

      West Virginia, Earl Ray Tomblin (D)

      Wisconsin, Scott Walker

      • Brownback, Perry and Walker are on record as being pretty much open borders. Pence is a squish. Jindal and Haley are Indians (dot, not feather).

        Deal did sign some good state level immigration enforcement legislation for Georgia, before the Supreme Court took a lot of the wind out of its sails. Paul LePage is locked in a battle with the Feds over the matter of food stamps and illegal aliens, so he’s alright.

        The rest of them I don’t know enough about re immigration.

    • MBlanc46

      Well, of course this is a political act. The amnesty was a political act. The chasm between the major political groupings in the US has become so deep that all that’s left until physical conflict occurs is political posturing.

    • JohnEngelman

      I suspect that Republican will handle Amnesty for illegals the way they have handled Roe v. Wade. They will make a lot of noise over this issue, but they will not do anything of a substantial nature to stop it.

      Ronald Reagan solicited the votes and contributions of pro life activists. Nevertheless, he did not even speak before them when they staged a demonstration in Washington, DC.

      The business community, which has always dominated the Republican Party, wants more immigrants so that they can lower wages and raise prices.

      Nevertheless, immigrants usually vote Democratic. Democratic politicians like to raise taxes for businessmen, and impose more regulations on them.

      Look for a compromise between the parties that will legalize the legals, while denying them citizenship rights.

      With all due respect to the many good ladies who post here on AmRen, I fear that if salvation rests upon white women, we are well and truly doomed.

    • Reynardine

      Women, such as my mother and sister, became incredibly hardline about the race issue once they fully understood the gravity of the situation. Women, when converted, become the staunchest of allies. Perhaps we need our own Joan of Arc.

      • ricpic

        We’ve got her — Sarah Palin. And no, she hasn’t been destroyed by the media. When the Republicans go the way of the Whigs, very soon, there will be a genuine conservative traditional values party born in its place and the natural standard bearer of that party, who has an ELECTRIC connect with ordinary Americans, will be Sarah.

        • Reynardine

          I was thinking more along the lines of Le Pen, but you have to play the hand you’re dealt.

        • Spikeygrrl

          I’ll keep saying it at every opportunity:
          RUN, SARAH, RUN!

    • Anna Tree

      I hope you are right.
      I fear that your wife became your ally only because you opened her eyes first: one cannot see when their eyes are closed.

      She was brainwashed by lies and you have now brainwashed her with the truth.
      Our only solution is propaganda, but we don’t have a podium and we are silenced and called heretics, and that makes the others deaf.
      So the setting free is slow. But it happens though.

      But true that women can empower men. We need more men and women, continue the good work Amreners! 🙂
      Every white we succeed to free from its diversity shackles, is a saved white and a decreased enemy.

      • Spikeygrrl

        Anna, please don’t be deterred by the casual misogyny here. Most of the men here are by turns funny, insightful, and respectful. But that’s Dr. Jekyll. You’ll meet Mr. Hyde whenever there’s an essay directly dealing with women. I have to admit I was amazed at the vitriol! You just have to take a few deep breaths and remember how much better THIS is than hanging out on HuffPoker or Slate or heaven forbid the NYT {YUCK!}

        • Reynardine

          If we say anything here that sounds downright misogynistic here, it’s most likely directed at the race-destroying harpies who parade through the media as “representatives of women” and our words are chosen for effect, not for courtesy.

          Don’t worry, we really love you gals:

          “Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman must not perish from the earth.”

            “Because the beauty of White Aryan woman must not perish from the earth.”

            Hear hear.
            Two things no one in history does like we do, beauty and warfare.
            Well, those two things and everything else really.;)

            Maybe the conflict and the wounding of our diminished numbers is exactly the pressure cooker we needed to awaken the beast within that had been lulled to slumber.

          • Spikeygrrl

            I appreciate the sentiment (I think!), but it leaves out any woman, however effective or talented, who is not “beautiful.”

            (You just keep digging yourself in deeper and deeper, doncha?)

            Thought Experiment: Presuming no other available options (including infidelity), would you prefer to spend the rest of your life and have White children with a gorgeous woman who’s dumb as a stump, or a woman with a stratospheric IQ and average-to-plain looks?

          • I think we had this discussion in this very space awhile back. To me, a smart woman looks more beautiful than just her raw physical assets would suggest.

          • Reynardine

            Given that I’m looking to raise white children into adults, and the first teacher of a child is her mother, intelligence most definitely plays a strong role in mate selection for me. I plan to home educate as much as possible to counter the anti-intellectual, anti-white, and anti-family propaganda mill that our current public school system has become.

            Also, the “looks” that are portrayed today as being the peak of societally accepted beauty (supermodels, actresses) are products of homosexual male designers projected upon unsuspecting women. Why do you think so many models look like young boys with no curves or feminine faces?

        • Anna Tree

          Hi Spikeygrrl! I have to say oops I should have perhaps been clearer because my response was specific to the personal story of SeeTheFuture.
          For example, in my family, it is me, the wife, who opened the eyes of my husband.

          • Spikeygrrl

            And my reply was generic; we really need the balance that more females could supply here, and I would surely tear my hair if you were to join the cohort of promising women who walked away just because “boys will be boys.”

            Please pay it forward when you get the chance.

      • SoulInvictus

        This reminds me of a line from a Brit song by The Automatic.

        “What’s that coming over the hill, is it a Monster?”

        White women are beginning to wake up to the fraud that’s been perpetrated on them as well. Their children’s future gutted with debt and vaccine poisons, their men jobless, emasculated and ground down, and on and on.

        When the tipping point of feminine fury is reached, it will be a monster of epic proportions. Today I’m feeling more optimistic about our prospects because these commies/corporatists/totalitarians have made a serious tactical error with the recent spate of race baiting. White America (and white Europe) increasingly no longer cares and you can almost palpably feel the tribe drawing together. As our numbers decrease, the sensation of being crowded out of our lands grows, our culture annihilated and erased …then these folks will indeed see a monster coming over the hill.

        • Who Me?

          Most of the sound and fury of the most strident feminism was replaced by the allure of “Don’t you girls want to get paid the same wage as men who do the same job?” by the time I hit my early and mid-teens. Well, of course, that sounds perfectly reasonable, on the face of it, so like millions of other young women, I decided that was all I needed to know, and “of course I was a feminist, wasn’t everybody?”
          I heard vague rumors about older girls burning their bras and such, but to my friends and I that was stupid, we were trying to get INTO bras, not burn them!
          It wasn’t until I was married and in college that I learned a little more about feminism, and made a conscious decision right then that I wanted nothing to do with it. I have stood by that decision all these years and I still believe that it has ruined many an otherwise perfectly lovely young lady’s life, and made her miserable.
          I took the required “Women’s Studies” course in college, and as far as I could see, it was nothing more than an introduction on how to ruin your marriage (or relationship) and hate men, especially White men, and in the process, make them hate all women, too.
          So when some of the young men come on here with some hateful things to say about women, I think most of us need to see it from their perspective and excuse most of their bitterness as a result of the way they have been treated by women who probably didn’t know any better themselves.(And of course there are some women who know better but are just bitches and take delight in ruining everybody’s life, but I’m not talking about them.)

  • Virus, Smiley

    I’ve not seen any coverage at all concerning the order’s role in bolstering Social Security.

    In the past couple of years, it’s been reported that the outlays for SS entitlements exceeded income. Meaning, SS is not just broke well into the future, but it’s broke now. Each year, the hemorrhaging grows worse as even more Boomers leave the work force. Expect to see some massive shifts in the American quality of life and institutions in the next three years. The collapse of SS is huge and the establishment is going to have react at a faster and faster rate to the avalanche bearing down on it.

    Obama is on videotape saying 25 times that he could not wave a wand and thereby end deportations. The about face is a recognition that SS is probably going to fail faster than originally planned. Thus, to put off the inevitable, it’s necessary to get millions of younger workers into the system so that tax revenues can be raised. Sticking to the same line would be for Obama, tantamount to speeding up the destruction of the cornerstone of the welfare state. I suspect that, once the situation as it really stands is explained behind closed doors to the GOP leadership, opposition will quickly fade, save for a few token actions. Both the GOP and the Democrats need to keep the ship afloat for a few more years, if only to milk it for the last dregs.

    Race realists tend to focus on the demographic apocalypse looming on the horizon, but I think the state, which is already a failed state, will collapse from economic pressures long before 2050, the forecasted year for the end of white majority.
