(NEWSER)– The governor-elect of Texas plans to do something he's done thirty times before: sue President Obama's administration.

This time, it's over Obama's executive action that could grant working papers to nearly five million illegal immigrants. "We think we have standing better than any other state to be able to assert this claim against the president," Greg Abbott tells Fox News Sunday, Politico reports. His reasoning: The 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals action, which let some children of illegals remain in the country, apparently affected Texas. Abbott argues "that in the aftermath of this presidential order, we’re going to face the same challenges in Texas that we did after the 2012 DACA."
