Are we still letting leftists define the agenda to defy common sense and federal immigration laws? The answer is yes, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the latest victim of this.
A U.S. District Court Judge is going after Arpaio for protecting his county from illegal immigrants.
Independent Journal Review has the details. Does this make sense to you?
In the ruling, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton accused Arpaio of intentionally violating the earlier court order, something Arpaio denies doing. “They have demonstrated a persistent disregard for the orders of this Court, as well as an intention to violate and manipulate the laws and policies regulating their conduct,” Snow wrote, according to AZFamily.com.
While Arpaio, who had been sheriff of Arizona’s Maricopa County, admitted to civil contempt in 2015, he said his violation was not intentional. That order came in 2011 when Judge Murray Snow told Arpaio to stop using immigration status as a basis for arresting people.
FOX News has this on his sentence:
He is expected to be sentenced on Oct. 5 and faces up to six months in jail if convicted, though some attorneys doubt Arpaio will face any jail time.
Arpaio’s lawyers argued that the former sheriff did not intend to break the law. The ex-lawman admitted to prolonging his patrols, but then blamed one of his former attorneys for not fully explaining the court order.
However, prosecutors insisted that Arpaio ignored the judge’s orders because the former sheriff was attempting to boost his 2012 campaign.
Isn’t it time the Trump administration put an end to this judicial tyranny?
