December 3, 2014

The Honorable Greg Abbott


PO Box 12548

Austin, TX 78711-2548

Dear Governor-Elect Abbott:

You have our support in your legal challenge against President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive actions on immigration.   President Obama’s decree far exceeds his authority, bypassing 535 elected members of Congress who represent all Americans. The President’s challenge to our constitutional order must be met with a decisive legal challenge, just as you are now undertaking.

Thank you for your principled service to the State of Texas, and for your outspoken defense of the United States Constitution.


Senator Brian Birdwell Senator Donna Campbell
Senator Brandon Creighton Senator Bob Deuell
Senator Craig Estes Senator Troy Fraser
Senator Kelly Hancock Senator Jane Nelson
Senator Robert Nichols Senator Charles Schwertner
