Federal Court Preliminary injunction confirms that Obama Administration violated the law.

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey issued the following statement  on a ruling by a U.S. District Court judge that halts immigration changes proposed by the Obama Administration.  
  In December, West Virginia joined Texas and 24 other states in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Department of Homeland Security plans that would have shielded millions of people who are in the country illegally. The plans were outlined in a Department of Homeland Security rule, which was issued in November.

"We believe the issuance of a preliminary injunction at this point in the case is a positive first step in what will be a long court process.  The order confirms that the Obama Administration violated the law, and it prevents the Administration’s unlawful actions from going into effect.

"The Obama Administration has repeatedly shown that it is willing to cherry pick which laws it will enforce or ignore, and we are pleased the court has acknowledged the states have standing to challenge these rules in court.

"West Virginia will continue to stand with other state attorneys general and fight back against federal overreach in every form, be it immigration, health care, or advocating for certain energy policies that negatively impact West Virginia and other coal-producing states."
