Posted on 11/20/2014 8:59:32 PM PST by Moseley
(Washington, D.C., November 20, 2014) Today, in response to the executive order President Barack Obama has signed effectively granting amnesty to about a half of the illegal aliens currently in this country, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona filed a lawsuit to enjoin this unconstitutional act. This lawsuit can be found at www.freedomwatchusa.org.
Sheriff Arpaio's lawyer is Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, former federal prosecutor and founder of both Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch. Mr. Klayman recently succeeded in obtaining a preliminary injunction against the National Security Agency for having unconstitutionally accessed the telephonic metadata of nearly all American citizens. See Klayman v. Obama, et al (Civil Action No. 13-cv-851), filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
Upon filing the complaint, which is styled Arpaio v. Obama, et al. before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (Civil Action No. 14-cv-1966), Sheriff Arpaio issued this statement:
"This unconstitutional act by the President will have a serious detrimental impact on my carrying out the duties and responsibilities for which I am charged as Sheriff. Specifically, it will severely strain our resources, both in manpower and financially, necessary to protect the citizens I was elected to serve. For instance, among the many negative affects of this executive order, will be the increased release of criminal aliens back onto streets of Maricopa County, Arizona, and the rest of the nation.
I am not seeking to myself enforce the immigration laws as this is the province of the federal government. Rather, I am seeking to have the President and the other defendants obey the U.S. Constitution, which prevents this executive order from having been issued in the first place. This unconstitutional act must be enjoined by a court of law on behalf of not just myself, but all of the American people."

Thanks, I had not seen that video.
Sheriff Joe “could be” Speaker of he House “legally”.
Practically no and it’s never happened that a non member became Speaker.
But, there is no legal impediment.
That's not half bad. We are just exercising prosecutorial discretion. If you send in 15 percent of your income, we won't go after you even if the law says you owe more.
Another analogy I have heard is this: What if a Republican president were to order the IRS to not collect capital-gains taxes? How do you suppose the Democrats would like that?
Sadly, that is true.
Good old Sheriff Joe; I knew years ago that this republic was just a blip in history, when no one in any authority would investigate or even look at the evidence of all the fraud that has been perpetrated against us. I don’t believe I’ll even bother voting again. There’s no difference, in the end, between the criminal Dems and the spineless pubbies who won’t attempt to stop them. There’s a hell of a lot of conservatives out there if the same mind, just in case you thought I was joking. Either the GOP find some damn balls, or they can go straight to hell.
Don’t forget Zero recently packed this court with his stooges courtesy of Harry Reid’s filibuster override.
I don’t know if that will work, DEM could still go after someone for back taxes when they come into office. Law abiding citizens probably won’t accept the amnesty for a few years only to get slapped with a fine years later
God bless you, Sir. Thank you for standing up for American
If the prez doesn’t follow the law, why should Texas?
They should secure the border themselves, perhaps w/the help of the Minutemen, and do their own deportations.
They’re also armed well enough to deal w/any Feds that try to stop them.
They only have the power that the People allow them to wield...
Hey how’s that Cold Case Posse doing?
Good old Joe. Whatever happened to his identity investigation of Barry?
That’s true, and that’s where the solution is. A true demonstration would not be a presentation of of our opinions but a demonstration of our power. Like Ukraine, Egypt, Tunisia, et el where the intent is to remove the tyrants. We have the power to do it, more than those countries had, but not through elections or temporal demonstrations.
God Bless Sheriff Joe.
Why would they do that? Hell, they are in on the scam.
God Bless You, Sheriff!
