Lawyers for no-nonsense conservative Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona have made a filing with the same lawyer who halted Obama’s executive amnesty order on immigration. The filing asks for a public hearing to figure out why Obama is refusing to comply with the constitution.
“Several reports indicate that the executive branch under the Obama administration has not complied with this court’s temporary injunction, but continues full-speed to implement a grant of amnesty and related benefits to approximately 5 million citizens of foreign countries who are illegally in the United States under the defendants’ November 20, 2014, executive action programs implemented by several memoranda issued by Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson,” the filing explains.
“If the defendants have in fact halted implementation of the programs in compliance with the court’s temporary injunction, the opportunity to assure the court and other observers of this may be afforded by the court asking for a response on whether the reports of continued implementation are accurate and whether the injunction is being complied with,” it continued.
Sheriff Joe has long been one of the strongest defenders of the U.S. border with Mexico. We applaud him for continuing to fight hard for Americans everywhere and hold the president responsible for his actions.
