Governor Scott Walker has signed on to a legal brief over President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
Walker is among the governors of 26 states who have filed a lawsuit that accuses the president of bypassing the separation of powers laid out in the Constitution. The case involves the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program, which was designed to help some of the parents of minor children who are U.S. citizens remain in the country.
The matter is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. In a statement, Walker said “the Constitution is clear that no president may unilaterally assume the power of Congress to create or rewrite laws.”
The Republican added that the legal brief “addresses the consequences of limitless executive power under our three branch government system.”
