25 states are suing President Obama over his executive action that will make it easier for illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.
The lawsuit says that not only is the president is trampling on the Constitution and effectively offering executive amnesty, he is imposing prohibitive costs on states with this executive order.
Texas says it will cost approximately $130 for each new driver’s license issued to an illegal immigrant. Arizona, a state with 120,000 illegal immigrants, is also worried about the costs.
Newly-elected Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said on “Fox and Friends” that there are two issues when it comes to the price of Obama’s amnesty plan.
First, it’s the financial cost – health care, education and legal expenses – which could be billions of dollars.
But it’s not only the financial burden, according to Brnovich, it’s the constitutional burden.
“The president has a duty under Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution to take care and administer our laws, and that’s what he’s failing to do,” Brnovich said.
