The 10 Republican presidential hopefuls who took to the stage for their first debate in Cleveland faced a daunting task in distinguishing themselves among a sprawling field of candidates. Along the way, they puffed up their own records in office and public life and veered occasionally from the truth.
Attorney General Roy Cooper is responding to complaints about why North Carolina isn't among the states challenging President Barack Obama over his executive order on immigration.
Gov. Pat McCrory joined the lawsuit filed this week and spearheaded by the Texas attorney general accusing Obama of overstepping his constitutional authority. McCrory is a plaintiff, but Cooper is not involved.
Gov. Pat McCrory says he joined a lawsuit brought by the Texas attorney general challenging President Barack Obama's executive order last month on immigration because the president exceeded his powers laid out in the U.S. Constitution.
McCrory made North Carolina one of the 17 states involved in the lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court over Obama's order designed to keep as many as five million people living illegally in the United States from being deported.
In a prime-time address Thursday, President Barack Obama announced through an Executive Order changes to immigration policy in the United States. The changes could make it easier to get a work permit to live in the country legally, as long as that person fits a certain criteria.
