Posted on 12/21/2011 6:42:46 AM PST by montag813
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION at the link below to show you Stand With Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and AGAINST the political witchhunt of Obama's Department of Justice. This Administration and its open-borders allies La Raza, MALDEF and the ACLU, will stop at nothing to try and destroy the most prominent national symbol in the fight against illegal immigration. Sheriff Joe will not back down. Please sign the petition to show we stand behind him.
[Note: The opposition already has a petition AGAINST Joe with 11,014 signatures (as of 6:32PST). Let's blow past them with 20,000 signatures or more by the end of today!]
Signed and (((pinged)))
Signed one yesterday - is this the same?
Yes. It posted Sunday for the first time. The ACLU petition against him on Change.org then had 3,400 sigs after 2 weeks, but has added another 8,000 rapidly since this one went up. It is a horse race, and I want Sheriff Joe to win. So please share if you can, and perhaps convince the Admin Moderator to put this on Front Page. Thanks.
Signed and bumped !
My question is.. Sheriffs are Constitutional officers, not U. S. Constitution but State Constitution.
The people created the Constitution which empowers the Federal government to protect the people. Also, the Tenth Amendment reserves to the states respectively, or to the people, any powers the Constitution did not delegate to the United States, nor prohibit the states from exercising.
The office of sheriff is created by the Constitution of the great state of Arizona. The sheriff is bound by the oath to uphold the Constitution of the state and answerable only to the people of the county NOT the Federal Government. The office of sheriff IS a part of the checks and balances of the United States of America. It is there to prevent the Federal Government from doing what it is trying to do today.
So what is the Federal Government going to do? Amend the Arizona State Constitution?
Perez cited the Civil Rights Act of 1965, and the 5th and 14th Amendments.
