My prediction:

They will have “no standing”.

Obama’s birth certificate set that precedent.

Let's call them what they are: communists and Marxists

The communist and Marxist politicians ( both Demo and RINO) are laughing at us and these sheriffs.

My prediction: The sheriffs will have “no standing”.

The **POINT** Obama’s fake birth certificate, the IRS and other agency bullying, and other outrages, is that the communists and Marxist politicians ( RINO and Demo) are flagrantly and opening taunting and mocking us.

There’s standing, because now that the bills are laws, it is certain that the sheriffs will have the burden of enforcing them. This certainty means the injury is not speculative, and the burden of enforcement is sufficient person injury to sustain standing. (The birther lawsuits we’re always a joke; they’re not precedent for anything because no one serious ever cared about them.)

Here he is.

"Friday afternoon, Grand County Sheriff Rodney Johnson joined the case, bringing the number of plaintiff Sheriffs to 55 out of the 62 elected County Sheriffs in Colorado. (Denver and Broomfield have appointed Sheriffs who run the jail, but do not have the comprehensive responsibilities of the elected Sheriffs.) The Complaint will be amended next week to reflect Sheriff Johnson’s participation. "
