Sheriff Arpaio Files Suit Against Obama
[su_right_ad]Add Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio to to those going after President Obama for granting a temporary reprieve to some undocumented immigrants.
Arpaio told KNXV-TV that the president is conning the American public with his immigration plan.
“He speaks a good game and I understand where he’s coming from in a way. On the other hand, let’s not con the American public. How are we going to keep track of these 5 million people?” Arpaio said…
“I’m surprised they have not detected these 5 million people and have not deported them throughout the years,” Arpaio told KNXV.
Arpaio stated that his lawyer was filing the lawsuit following Obama’s speech and that no taxpayer funds will be used in the lawsuit.
“We have to understand whether this is constitutional or not, whether he is going around Congress is legal,” Arpaio explained to KNXV. “I’m going to send a message that we’re not going to give up, that this does affect the streets of Maricopa County.”
The Maricopa County sheriff fears that Obama’s executive actions will open up the floodgates for those in Central America to come into the U.S.
“This is going to open the door. Everybody in Mexico, Central America, thinks they will have a free pass when they come into our country because of what the president is issuing,” Arpaio said.[su_csky_ad]
