A hearing is scheduled for December 22, in an immigration lawsuit filed by Joe Arpaio and his birther attorney Larry Klayman. I’m waiting for the inevitable dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. Yesterday Klayman filed a supplemental declaration by Arpaio, repeating pretty much what they filed before.
I continue to wonder exactly who is filing the lawsuit. It is Joe Arpaio (who is named) or is it the Sheriff of Maricopa County. This latest filing plays with the latter, saying:
The unconstitutional act of the President’s Executive Actions must be enjoined by a court of law on behalf of not only just myself and my Office which represents the people of Maricopa County, Arizona, but all of the American people.
Klayman had previously requested that Arpaio be allowed to testify live at the hearing and I think I read that this request was denied. The District of Columbia court ECF system is not responding right now, so I can’t check.
Arpaio seeks a preliminary injunction against Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
