Cornyn Statement on Federal Judge Ruling Against Obama's Executive Action

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after a U.S. District Court Judge in Brownsville put a hold on President Obama's recent immigration executive actions due to serious legal questions about those actions:
 
"Today's ruling reinforces what I and many others have been saying for a long time: that President Obama acted outside the law when he went around Congress to unilaterally change our nation's immigration laws. Today's victory is an important one, but the fight to reverse the President's unconstitutional overreach is not over. The President must respect the rule of law and fully obey the court’s ruling.”
