"Our lawsuit is about the rule of law, not the wisdom of any particular immigration policy", Paxton said.

"While she doesn't want the daca program to end, Ayotitla says long term it's just not the solution, "It is time for congress to take action to find a bipartisan and permanent solution that we've been waiting for for years".

Nebraska Applessed accuses Attorney General Doug Peterson of targeting valuable Young Nebraskans by joining a suit with six other states aimed at ending a program protecting some young immigrants.

He successfully challenged Mr. Obama's 2014 attempt to expand DACA to include perhaps 3 million more illegal immigrants in the program.

In South Carolina, Attorney General Alan Wilson, who attached his state to the lawsuit, says he doesn't mean any ill will to the children who will be affected by the end of DACA. However, that decision was delayed 90-days to allow the administration to make its case.

The Paxton lawsuit, filed in the Southern District of Texas, does not specifically challenge DACA as a policy but as to whether Obama as president had the power to set it up in the first place.

Through the random assignment process used in federal courts, the new complaint initially went to an Obama-appointed judge, Rolando Olvera, in the Brownsville courthouse near the Mexico border.

Trump has tried to do the right thing by rescinding DACA, but the judiciary has improperly thwarted him, Paxton said.

Facebook to allow users to clear browsing history: Mark Zuckerberg
The company came under fire in March for how it handles users' data after the Cambridge Analytica scandal came to light. Zuckerberg warned that the service won't be quite as good if users take this step, as it has to relearn their history.

Paxton, Rutledge, and five other red-state attorney generals hostile to DACA have now filed a lawsuit in a friendly district in Texas arguing that President Obama's initial creation of DACA violated the Constitution and federal law. "Left intact, DACA sets a risky precedent by giving the executive branch sweeping authority to ignore the laws enacted by Congress and change our nation's immigration laws to suit a president's own preferences".

The lawsuit could put an end to DACA, the "dreamers" program. The courts blocked DAPA after I led another state coalition challenging its constitutionality all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Asked about all this Wednesday on American Family Radio, Abraham Hamilton III - legal counsel for the American Family Association - said DACA is an executive order and does not have the power of law.

Congress, meanwhile, has failed to reach consensus on how to preserve the program with legislation, and the court rulings preserving the program only served to further take the pressure off lawmakers.

Texas has had success in the past with suing to block liberal immigration policies.

Paxton said the lawsuit filed this week against the executive order that created DACA is about maintaining rule of law.

The states argue in their court filing that "This court has authority to immediately rescind and cancel all DACA permits now in existence because they are unlawful".
