Obama vs Sheriff Joe

Monday morning. 9:30 am. Washington, D.C.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his attorney Larry Klayman will face off in a Preliminary Injunction hearing in D.C.’s U.S. District Court.

Arpaio filed suit on December 6th, citing that President Obama’s plan to grant Amnesty to 4.7 million illegal immigrants as a violation of the Constitution.

Upon filing the complaint, Klayman stated, “Obama’s form of amnesty violates the U.S. Constitution, plain and simple. The President does not have the authority to rewrite immigration laws as legislation and national policy are enacted by Congress, not by the President.”

On Friday, Klayman told the media, “President Obama cannot end run Congress based on his own “emperor-like” actions. By his own admission 22 times in the past, Obama lacks the power to take this unconstitutional executive action. To allow this to stand would amount to trashing our constitutional republic and set a bad precedent for future presidents. I am hopeful that the Court will grant us the preliminary injunction, in order that the status quo of our current law can remain in effect, and allow the next Congress the right to enact any new legislation that can help solve our border and illegal immigration problems.”

Klayman and Arpaio have been successful in forcing the hearing to take place despite having odds set against them with the assigned judge, the Honorable Beryl A. Howell.

Howell is an Obama appointee. The president nominated her in 2010 with the unanimous consent of the Senate.

Obama has nominated 307 federal judges during his presidency. They represent 9% of all federal judges.

Klayman and Arpaio had a 9% chance of having a key lawsuit against the president placed in front of one of his appointees.

Nearly a year earlier, Klayman was granted a preliminary injunction against the National Security Agency, enjoining them from collecting phone and metadata on American citizens.

In the NSA case, the judge, the Honorable Richard J. Leon, was nominated by George W. Bush one day before the September 11th attacks.

Expect Klayman to take to the courthouse steps following Monday’s hearing to discuss reaction to the case.

Obama Sued over Amnesty

Joining forces with notorious Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, public interest attorney Larry Klayman has filed suit against President Obama to halt his immigration plans.

The case, Arpaio v Obama (14-cv-1966), was filed by Klayman in Washington, D.C.

Obama announced on November 20th that under his own authority, he would grant amnesty to 4.7 million illegal aliens.

Upon filing the complaint, Klayman stated, “Obama’s form of amnesty violates the U.S. Constitution, plain and simple. The President does not have the authority to rewrite immigration laws as legislation and national policy are enacted by Congress, not by the President.”

The judge in the case, U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell has ordered attorneys to submit their schedule of meetings, conferences and hearings concerning the case.

President Obama is being represented by attorneys from the U.S. Department of Justice.

While Obama being sued over amnesty plans is a new development, the president has been sued numerous times. The incoming Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has personally sued Obama 25 times alone.

Earlier in the year, Klayman succeeded in temporarily enjoining the National Security Agency from spying on Americans.
