113 Members of Congress File Legal Brief Against Obama’s Executive Immigration Action

A total of 113 lawmakers — members of both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate — are urging a federal appeals court to hold President Obama’s executive action on immigration unconstitutional.

The members of Congress filed an amicus brief supporting a lawsuit previously filed by 26 states challenging Obama’s action.

“President Obama’s actions on illegal immigration are clearly unconstitutional and I was left with no other choice than to join 112 of my colleagues as well as 26 states to stand up for the Constitution and the Rule of law and oppose the President in federal court,” Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) said. “Our nation’s immigration laws must be defended and I hope the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit will concur with lower court rulings and overturn the President’s illegal abuse of power.”

The brief argues that Obama’s executive action violates the Constitution.
