Within minutes of Obama announcing his plan to give millions of illegals amnesty, Sheriff Joe Arpaio was filing a lawsuit. The always outspoken â€œpeopleâ€™s sheriff”, has been leading the fight against Obama’s lawless actions on illegal immigration. Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch is Arpaioâ€™s lawyer in the suit. He filed a motion to expedite the process of a preliminary injunction hearing to take place. The reason was to temporarily protect America from the damage Obama’s actions will do while the whole amnesty debacle is worked out. In usual government fashion, the lawyers from the Department of Justice wanted to drag this out. They claimed that they needed until the second half of January to respond. But U.S. District Court Judge Beryl A. Howell wasn’t having it. He agreed with Arpaio and ordered Obama and his camp to respond to the motion for a preliminary injunction hearing by Dec. 15. The full hearing will begin on December 22nd.
Klayman told WND, â€œWe 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 Obamaâ€™s executive order,â€
The motion was filed because the Obama administration has already taken steps to begin the program. They already hired at least one thousand agents to process paperwork for the five million illegal aliens who will soon have access to government benefits. This injunction will stop any further harmÂ being done to our country, at least until the trial.
Klayman argued in the motion that, â€œThis 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.â€
Department of Justice lawyers argued that they needed more time because of the Christmas holiday, but Klayman argued in return, â€œthe defendants obviously have already extensively reviewed and analyzed their view of the law and precedents.â€
Sorry Obama, stalling isn’t going to work this time. This is a major victoryÂ for the American people and our sheriff. Hopefully, it will be followed by more wins, and we can get this country back on track.
