Cruz: Injunction Against Obama's Executive Amnesty a "Major Victory" For The Rule of Law

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is calling the injunction issued last night by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, blocking President Obama's executive amnesty, a "major victory for the rule of law." Cruz has been leading the fight against President Obama's recent executive action on illegal immigration and is calling on Democrats to reconsider their opposition to DHS funding.

"The Texas court decision reached last night is a major turning point in the fight to stop Obama's lawless amnesty," said Sen. Cruz. "Gov. Abbott and Attorney General Paxton are leading a coalition of 26 states to block the illegal executive actions and to protect our states, cities, and communities. This is a major victory for the rule of law; the District Court's ruling states that President Obama must now stop implementing these policies in 'any and all aspects.' Last summer we saw a humanitarian crisis on our southern border that was a direct consequence of Obama's previous amnesty. Republicans are now standing together to try to ensure that it never happens again," Cruz said in a statement. "The Senate Democrats who are filibustering Department of Homeland Security funding should look hard at this ruling. At a time when we face grave national security threats, at home and abroad, it is the height of irresponsibility for the Democrats to block this funding in an extreme attempt to save Obama's amnesty, which a federal judge has just declared illegal."

The injunction will allow the courts to look at the constitutionality of the action. As Conn wrote this morning, the Department of Justice will appeal the injunction and the White House expressed disappointment in the decision.
