Statement from Lt. Governor Patrick on Court’s Executive Amnesty Ruling

President Obama was handed a major setback tonight in what I always believed was his unlawful attempt to circumvent the U.S. Constitution by creating amnesty for millions of people here illegally.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen ruled in favor of Texas and 25 other states who challenged President Obama’s executive action on immigration.

I applaud Governor Abbott who as Attorney General led this fight when he filed suit in December.

ICYMI: I released 57 interim charges that reflect issues that Texans have asked us to study. Our 31 senators submitted hundreds of ideas, with many senators sharing similar proposals. My staff and I worked diligently for weeks to review each request, and this is the first set of interim charges I am releasing in preparation for the 89th Legislature. We may release a second shorter list of additional charges before next session.

You can read more about them here:; and here is a list of all 57 charges for the Senate:
