HOUSTON, Texas -- They're not necessarily saying the governor-elect is the Grinch, but they seem to think he's acting like one, so they were carrying pictures that had Abbott as the Grinch.

Grinch AbbottImmigrants, faith and community leaders met up at Greg Abbott's Houston office to try to get the next leader of the Lone Star state into the holiday spirit and season of giving and let him know they're not cool with his lawsuit against the Obama administration.

Ceil Roager, a protestor, says she opposes the immigration lawsuit, "Because of what we see as his attempt to steal families and separate families."

The suit, on behalf of 17 states, seeks to block the president's executive action that temporarily protects immigrants who've been in the country for over five years, have children and have passed criminal background checks!

Another portestor, Jose Diaz, says, "If that's how our state is going to be ran then i really regret ever having voted for Greg Abbott."

The suit isn't really expected to do much, and although we didn't hear back from Abbott's office with a comment, we guess at the very least, the governor-elect just wants to make a point.

Protestor Carlos Duarte says, "Unfortunately at this office they did not even want to take the letters that we had written from our families to Greg Abbott where we are asking him to drop the lawsuit."
