Texas Gov. and possible GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry said that Texas might sue the Obama administration over its impending executive order that will reportedly allow nearly five million illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. without penalty.

Perry made the remarks to NBC’s Chuck Todd during the Republican Governor’s Association annual meeting in Boca Raton, Fla. Wednesday afternoon.

“I think that’s probably a very real possibility,” Perry said while appearing on a panel with other possible 2016 candidates Scott Walker, Mike Pence, John Kasich, and Bobby Jindal.

According to POLITICO’s Jake Sherman, Perry also said the cost of illegal immigration is “extraordinary,” adding that the Lone Star State spends $12 million a month to secure the porous southern border.
