Texas Governor-Elect Greg Abbott pledged to challenge President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration in court. Abbott, who will serve as Texas' attorney general until he succeeds Gov. Rick Perry in January, made his vow Thursday, shortly after the president issued expansive executive actions to spare nearly 5 million people in the U.S. illegally from deportation. In a statement, Abbott said, "President Obama has circumvented Congress and deliberately bypassed the will of the American people, eroding the very foundation of our nation's Constitution and bestowing a legacy of lawlessness." Separately, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt announced prior to Obama's speech that the state will bring forward legal action. 


Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown on Aug. 9, is in the final stages of negotiations with the Missouri city's officials to resign, sources close to the talks told CNN.

A decision on whether to charge Wilson in the death of the unarmed teen could come the same day. Wilson has told associates he would resign to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers, but he's expressed concern about resigning while the grand jury was hearing evidence for fear it would appear he was admitting fault.
