Carson City, NV – Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt was invited to testify before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Feb. 25, at 10:00 a.m. on the unconstitutionality of President Obama’s executive overreach on immigration. AG Laxalt’s testimony will address the lawsuit challenging the President’s unilateral action, and focus on the states’ role in ensuring executive branch compliance with this country’s laws and its Constitution.
“I am honored to be invited to this hearing, and appreciate the oversight role that the House Judiciary Committee plays,” said Laxalt. “This lawsuit is ultimately about the rule of law, not immigration, and the need for all branches of our government, including the President, to faithfully follow the law.”
The House Judiciary Committee is a standing committee of the U.S. House of Representatives tasked with considering a variety of subjects related to civil and criminal law.
At Wednesday’s hearing, the House Judiciary Committee will hear from the following witnesses on the President’s unilateral, unconstitutional actions:
- The Honorable Adam Paul Laxalt, Attorney General of Nevada
- Mr. Josh Blackman, Assistant Professor of Law, South Texas College of Law
- Ms. Elizabeth Price Foley, Professor, Florida International University College Law
- Mr. Steve Legomsky, Professor, Washington University Law School
The hearing will take place in 2141 Rayburn House Office Building, Washington, D.C., and will webcast live at judiciary.house.gov.
AG Laxalt is joined by 25 other attorneys general from across the nation in this legal action.
