Last week, Americans everywhere were devastated when a federal appeals court threw out Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s lawsuit against President Obama’s executive actions.
Arpaio, however, has just announced that he is not giving up, and that he promises to take this case all the way to the Supreme Court.
“We’re going to Supreme Court,” Arpaio said during an appearance on Fox News. “We knew it was a tough battle in that appellate court down in Washington, DC, but we’re way ahead of the judge in south Texas, when all those governors joined, and I guess the judge put that on hold.”
“So, we’re already in the appellate court, and now going to Supreme Court on this very important issue,” the sheriff added, according to Breitbart. “I think the Supreme Court may hear it, because you have different opinions from different district courts. Makes it ripe for the Supreme Court to look at it.”
“We have 5,000 people in jail on state charges that are here illegally, we turn them over to ICE, now last month, 40% keep coming back to the jails,” Arpaio concluded. “I think they’re letting these people out the back door, because if they’re not, we sure have a bad border down there. I think we agree with that. But, when they’ve keep coming back 20, 25 times, in my jail, there’s something wrong somewhere. So, something has to be done about it very, very–.”
This news comes as Obama and his followers are trying to have Arpaio thrown in jail for speaking out against the president. We’re glad to see that Arpaio isn’t fazed by this, and that he isn’t giving up on his lawsuit!
