Rep. Smith Praises Court for Rejecting Amnesty
‘The Fifth Circuit Court has reaffirmed that unconstitutional executive amnesty is contrary to the rule of law’
This week Rep. Smith applauded the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit’s reaffirming the injunction issued by a Texas judge of President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty. This injunction prohibits the Obama administration from implementing unconstitutional executive amnesty.
“The Fifth Circuit Court has reaffirmed that unconstitutional executive amnesty is contrary to the rule of law,” Said Rep. Lamar Smith. “I along with other members have joined in the Texas led lawsuit against President Obama’s lawlessness and will continue to oppose any form of amnesty.”
Rep. Smith along with Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz recently filed an amicus brief in support of the 26-state lawsuit against President Obama’s unconstitutional executive actions.
