More than 100 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed an amicus brief, backing the 26 states that are suing the Obama administration over the immigration executive action. The brief, which was filed on May 11th by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), includes the names of 113 Republican legislators who openly oppose the deportation relief this action would provide to millions of undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
Among the names in this brief are two 2016 presidential hopefuls – Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz. While Sen. Rand Paul has not signed the brief, neither has Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has not yet officially announced whether she will run in 2016.
