As Twitchy reported earlier this week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott led 26 states in winning a milestone injunction against President Obama’s executive amnesty.

Tonight in Texas, Gov. Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, and Sen. Ted Cruz held a joint press conference to discuss the victory.

This is what leadership looks like.

Led by Abbott five weeks before he stepped down as state attorney general, Texas and 25 states filed the lawsuit in early December.

“This was a victory for America and for the rule of law and a victory for the Constitution,” Abbott said as new state Attorney General Ken Paxton, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz listened.

“I am confident that as this case works its way through the appellate process we will continue to win,” Abbott said. “And I am confident because of the primary witness in this case, and that is President Barack Obama himself, who said 22 times he did not have the authority to do what he did.”

Paxton, Patrick and Cruz agreed.

“This victory, this week, the decision from the federal court, was a major victory for the rule of law,” Cruz said. “All of us have reasons to be proud that Texas led the way, standing up to President Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional executive amnesty.


Amen. As Sen. Cruz says: #MakeDCListen!
