Just as Americans brace for another year of President Obama’s illegal amnesty agenda, Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) announced late Monday night that a federal judge has “granted” his request to “halt” his executive order in every state! This is huge!

Time reporter Zeke Miller later published the temporary injunction order handed down by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas online.
The order of temporary injunction states: “The reasons for this injunction are set out in detail in the accompanying Memorandum Opinion and Order, but, to summarize, it is due to the failure of the Defendants to comply with the Administrative Procedure Act.”
The order continues: “The Court having found that at le[a]st one Plaintiff has satisfied all the necessary elements to maintain a lawsuit and to obtain a Temporary Injunction hereby grants the Motion for Temporary Injunction. … The United States of America, its departments, agencies, officers, agents and employees…are hereby enjoined from implementing any and all aspects or phases of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) program as set out in the Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson’s memorandum dated November 20, 2014 (“DAPA Memorandum”), pending a final resolution of the merits of this case or until a further order of this Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit or the United States Supreme Court.”

You can read the entire decision in this file below, which already has steam coming out of Obama’s ears:
America is a nation of immigrants, and no one is opposed to legal immigration. But President Obama has worked tirelessly to circumvent the Constitution and grant amnesty to rule breakers, for political reasons. But as he just found out, the courts don’t appreciate his disregard of America’s immigration laws.
Are you proud of Texas for fighting against illegal immigration? Please sign this petition and say NO to Obama’s amnesty agenda.
