Florida will go to court over President Obama’s recent order granting additional protections to millions of undocumented immigrants.

Florida attorney General Pam Bondi announced Friday the state will join with Texas to sue the Obama Administration over what it describes as an overreach. The move is a response to President Obama’s executive order which allowing millions of undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States without fear of deportation.

In a statement, Bondi says the lawsuit is not about immigration, but about laws.

"The powers granted to the President are expressly laid out in the United States Constitution, yet President Obama has decided to ignore those parameters,” Bondi says. “We need to fix our system of immigration, but willfully turning a blind eye to the inconvenience of law and rule is not the path to a remedy, but a prescription for unwarranted presidential overreach."
