Nevada AG Laxalt Says He's Defending "Rule Of Law"
Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt told members of Congress today that he joined a lawsuit against President Obama’s immigration actions to defend the rule of law.
Appearing before the House Judiciary Committee, he said the lawsuit is not about politics but about defending the constitutional system. Laxalt said Obama overstepped his legal bounds by changing the law without the consent of Congress and called it a slippery slope for future presidents.
House Republicans invited the recently elected Republican lawyer to speak on behalf of the 26 states suing Obama for granting deportation relief for millions of undocumented immigrants.
