Sheriff Arpaio Sues Obama’s Amnesty

In the first of what is believed to be many court battles over the lawlessness of Barack Obama’s Executive Amnesty, which he has yet to actually write, Sheriff Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio scored a victory. The judge in the case ruled in Arpaio’s favor and put case arguments and hearings on a fast track, in spite of Obama Justice Department attorneys asking until the end of January to submit their initial response.

According to the complaint filed by attorney Larry Klayman on behalf of Arpaio, “This unconstitutional act will have a serious detrimental impact. Specifically, it will severely strain our resources. Among the many negative [e]ffects 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.”

U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell in Washington, D.C., granted a motion by Arpaio’s attorney, Larry Klayman of FreedomWatch, to move things along quickly.

Howell ordered Obama to respond to Arpaio’s motion for a preliminary injunction – to protect the U.S. while the court considers the constitutionality of Obama’s actions – by Dec. 15. A full preliminary injunction hearing is set for Dec. 22.

Arpaio was the first to file a complaint regarding the immigration actions Obama announced to the nation Nov. 20, which effectively granted amnesty to up to 5 million illegal aliens by delaying deportation.

“We are very pleased that Judge Howell has ordered an expedited hearing on our motion for preliminary injunction which asks to preserve the status quo and stop the implementation of President Obama’s executive order,” Klayman said. “The executive order violates the Constitution, as it seeks to circumvent the powers which the Framers delegated to Congress.”

Klayman argued Obama’s executive action “thwarts Sheriff Arpaio’s duties and responsibilities as the chief law enforcement officer of Maricopa County, Arizona.”

DOJ attorneys Adam Kirschner and Brad Cohen argued that they needed more time because of Christmas holidays approaching.

While Klayman acknowledged that Obama’s promised executive action on amnesty for illegal aliens had not been signed, he pointed to the fact that both federal programs and procedures were being altered in order to comply with his amnesty agenda.

Klayman wrote that Obama’s amnesty plan “orders direct DHS personnel including the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and ICE to immediately suspend enforcement of immigration laws with regard to any who appear to be eligible for the new deferred action programs, even though such persons might not yet be able to apply for formal recognition.”

….Arpaio, who has been openly saying that Barack Obama is a threat to national security and is an aggressor who is attacking America, released a statement in which he said that his actions were to have the Obama administration and federal agencies obey the law.

“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.”

Sheriff Arpaio sues Obama’s immigration order

Less than two hours after Barack Obama announced a solo move to protect millions of illegal aliens from deportation, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio took him to court to have the Constitution upheld.

A lawsuit filed by attorney Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch named Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, Immigration Services chief Leon Rodriquez and Attorney General Eric Holder as defendants in an action that seeks to avoid “irreversible harm” from Obama’s actions because they will “encourage[e] more illegal aliens to enter the country unlawfully…”

The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, seeks, among other things, a “permanent injunction declaring the amnesty programs to be unlawful.”

Arpaio, who has been at odds with the Obama administration a number of times, released a 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 encharged as sheriff,” he said “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 [e]ffects 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.”

He continued, “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.”

Obama Could Be Facing Deportation After What This Former DOJ Attorney Just Did

By B. Christopher Agee – WesternJournalism.com –

Throughout his presidency, Barack Obama has been hounded by one of the first nationwide scandals he ever faced. The authenticity of his birth certificate has repeatedly been called into question, leading critics to speculate that he is not a legitimate American citizen.

The debate has led to calls for his impeachment and prosecution; however, a former Department of Justice attorney recently initiated a push for an even bolder move: deportation.

Larry Klayman, who has gone on to establish the groups Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch following his time at the DOJ, filed a petition with the Department of Homeland Security’s Enforcement Removal Operations calling for Obama to be investigated.

“In sum,” he wrote, “deportation proceedings should be immediately commenced, an investigation undertaken, a full evidentiary hearing held, and Barack Hussein Obama should be removed from the United States.”

Klayman explained the reasoning behind his firm stance, alleging the president has “falsified various birth and other documents” ostensibly proving his citizenship and eligibility to hold his current office.

“It is clear,” the attorney continued, “based on a mountain of evidence as set forth in and attached to the petition, that the president and his agents have falsified documents, such as his birth certificate and Social Security number, to qualify for the privileges of American citizenship such that his citizenship, which is based on false pretenses, must be nullified.”

Klayman maintained that Obama has committed a crime regardless of his actual status by continually sticking to his argument that an obviously forged Hawaiian birth certificate is authentic….
