A US federal judge ordered an injunction to halt President Barack Obama’s controversial plans to exert executive authority and allow millions of undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States.

US District Judge Andrew Hanen, ruling in favor of a lawsuit brought by Texas Governor Tony Abbott, and 25 other states, paved the way for what promises to be a lengthy court battle to determine whether Obama overstepped his authority by announcing his amnesty plans.

Just 12 states have declared their support for Obama’s immigration initiative.

Speaking in Austin, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, “President Obama abdicated his responsibility to uphold the United States Constitution when he attempted to circumvent the laws passed by Congress via executive fiat, and Judge Hanen’s decision rightly stops the president’s overreach in its tracks. We live in a nation governed by a system of checks and balances, and the president’s attempt to bypass the will of the American people was successfully checked today. The district court’s ruling is very clear – it prevents the president from implementing the policies in ‘any and all aspects.’”
