Texas Gov. Greg Abbott spiked the football in President Obama’s face after a court ruled against his illegal amnesty order.
On Monday, a federal appeals court upheld a federal judge’s injunction blocking the president’s executive action to grant amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal immigrants, and the governor was noticeably happy.
“The court’s decision is a vindication for the rule of law and the Constitution,” he wrote in a statement. “The president’s job is to enforce the immigration laws, not rewrite them. President Obama should abandon his lawless executive amnesty program and start enforcing the law today.”

Fox News contributor, Judge Andrew Napolitano, told Megyn Kelly that the courts agreed that the president did not have the authority to rewrite the law.
“This is very, very rare that a single judge would enjoin the president and that that judge would be upheld by an appeals court,” Napolitano said.
According to the Napolitano, the administration only has one option remaining: take it to the Supreme Court.
