Lt. Governor Patrick Makes a Statement on 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Ruling


“I applaud today’s federal court ruling once again telling President Barack Obama his executive action attempt to grant legal status to as many as 5 million immigrants is illegal and unconstitutional.

“In essence the appeals court Judges told the President to quit wasting time trying to circumvent the law.

“Mr. President – please follow the law and reverse your illegal executive action now.

“I welcome all immigrants to Texas and to the United States of America, but we stand in unison with millions of hard working men and women who agree that entry to our borders must be done legally and in accordance with the law of the land, not political agendas or expediency.

“National security starts with border security and border security begins in Texas.”
