In February of this year, a federal judge in Texas ruled in favor Gov. Greg Abbott after Texas governor challenged President Obama’s executive amnesty.
On Monday the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling that Obama’s amnesty push is unconstitutional, but here’s how the Associated Press framed it:
BREAKING: Appeals court rules against Obama's plan to protect about 5 million people from deportation.

Well, that’s one way to put it.
@AP I think you meant "Appeals court rules against Obama 's plan to refuse to see that the laws are executed."

The AP tweet sounds like it could have been written by Josh Earnest.
That's one way to put it. Another is to note the president is obliged to enforce immigration law. Interesting choice https://t.co/mUkCaEkgvp

I wasn't aware it was the job of the government to "protect" people from the consequences of breaking the law. https://t.co/7DkNf26E6M
