What Texas Fails to See in its Challenge to Obama’s Immigration Plan

See my commentary on the United States v. Texas litigation in Fortune.

It begins:

"Make no mistake about it: Immigration reform is a political hot potato. The case pending in the United States Supreme Court, United States v. Texas—which the Court just heard Monday—is simply the latest battle in the long—and, at times, bloody—political war over immigration reform. Texas has made it clear that it disagrees with President Obama’s immigration policy choices and appears to be using the federal courts to achieve political ends not envisioned by the framers of the U.S. Constitution. The lawsuit, based primarily on technical and generally unpersuasive administrative law procedural claims, strongly suggests that the suit is little more than a political gambit."
