Plain and Simple - It's the LawOhio One of Twenty-four States to Join Lawsuit
Lake County, Ohio - With the Constitution being trampled, Governors and Attorney Generals from twenty-four states have joined in filing a lawsuit against the current administration.
"As an Ohio citizen, I am glad to see Ohio has joined in the fight," stated Arzella Melnyk of the Grassroots Rally Team of Ohio. "As the open border/amnesty groups complain, and are trying to urge Governor Kasich to withdraw, they need to read the lawsuit which states 'This lawsuit is not about immigration. It is about the rule of law, presidential power, and the structural limits of the U.S. Constitution'."
In joining this lawsuit, Attorney General DeWine clearly stated his reasoning when he said his decision had "nothing to do with immigration policy. It has everything to do with preserving our Constitution's separation of powers and combating the current administration's consistent efforts to expand presidential authority..."
"It's really quite simple," stated Marianne Gasiecki, Tea Party Patriots State Co-coordinator (OH), "either you understand and respect the rule of law or you don't. If you don't, how can you call yourself a United States Governor, let alone a President?"
"When the President took an oath to faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States and he is to take care the laws be faithfully executed, but then in turn suspends the immigration laws Congress has in place," stated Julie Aldrich President of Ohio Citizens for Sensible Immigration, " there really is no other option than to take it to the courts. Our Forefathers wrote the Constitution to provide for a separation of powers so there would not be a power grab by one individual or branch of government."
"While we rarely find ourselves in a position to applaud Mike DeWine - especially when it come to illegal immigration in Ohio, our tri-corner patriot hats are off to him for joining this lawsuit in defense of the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution," added Ralph King, Tea Party Patriots State Co-Coordinator (OH). "We can only hope Governor Kasich shows the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution this same compassion and respect."
