Arizona Sheriff Joe Demands Obama Be Forced To Face a Federal Judge Over Amnesty
Pink jumpsuits not withstanding, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, isn’t someone easily intimidated, in fact the good sheriff seems quite comfortable in taking the lead to halt the administrations illegal attempt to rewrite immigration law. And while the congress deters, Sheriff Arpaio has taken matters into his own hands filing law suites to halt the continued lawlessness exhibited by this administration, even calling for President Obama be forced to face the Federal Judge presiding over the case, of course that will never happen.
And as anyone who has ever gone through litigation knows the process can be quite exhausting, with appeals and counter appeals, and to that end an attorney for Sheriff Joe Arpaio has once again filed yet another appeal asking the judge who ordered the halting of President Obama’s executive amnesty, that a hearing be held on Obama’s refusal to comply with the court’s order, and stated to the judge within the appeal the following;
“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.”
And although there’s a federal order by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen to cease implementing the administrations amnesty program, Obama has warned that “one federal judge” will not stand in his way toward implementing amnesty.
There seems to be no doubt that the administration and the courts are heading for a showdown and perhaps even a Constitutional Crisis on the issues of immigration reform and more importantly the administrations attempt to circumvent the rule of law, and perhaps to that end the good sheriff of Maricopa County might want to reserve another pink jumpsuit, just in case.
