When President Barack Obama took executive action to grant amnesty to millions of immigrants, the state of Texas was the first to challenge him by filing a lawsuit. Then more states joined the suit, claiming the president overstepped his authority. Now members of Congress are also stepping into the fight by joining an amicus brief filed by a legal group.
Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas is requesting that the damages be appropriately capped in a suit brought by a Jefferson County couple claiming their son killed himself while under a suicide watch.
The same day members of Congress added their support to a Texas lawsuit claiming Barack Obama overstepped his authority by offering amnesty to millions of undocumented immigrants, a federal judge in a similar suit in Pennsylvania ruled that part of the president’s deportation amnesty plan was unconstitutional.
