INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence is one of several Republican governors who are considering suing to block President Barack Obama’s anticipated immigration plan.
Pence spokeswoman Christy Denault said Thursday that the governor’s office was consulting with Attorney General Greg Zoeller and will consider further steps after Obama issues his executive order.
Pence joins Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Texas Gov. Rick Perry in announcing they are considering lawsuits against Obama. All three men are also considering running for the White House in 2016.
Pence has scrapped with the Obama administration on immigration before, saying that he was kept out of the loop on the placement of illegal immigrants in the state.
