NY Sheriff Tells Deputies To Ignore Cuomo’s Immigration Order

by

Andrew CuomoA New York county sheriff is telling his deputies to ignore an order from Gov. Andrew Cuomo that instructs state police and other New York officials not to ask individuals about their immigration status, accusing the Democratic governor of trying to score “cheap political points.”

Cuomo on Friday signed the executive order that also prohibits state officials from disclosing a person’s immigration status to federal authorities, except in certain situations such as police investigations.

Hours later, Erie County Sheriff Timothy Howard issued a statement telling his deputies to continue reporting to U.S. officials “any and all” incidents involving undocumented individuals, consistent with existing department policy and federal law.

“Our officers have sworn a solemn oath to uphold the law,” Howard, a Republican, said in the statement. “As sheriff, part of my job is enforcing our constitution and the law, regardless of what cheap political points Albany politicians are looking to score.”

    political points Albany politicians are looking to score.”

    This needs to happen all across America, in every city, town and hamlet. Either that or just don’t swear an oath to uphold the laws anymore.

    Good job, refreshing.

    It will be interesting to see how the liberal media handles this. On one hand you have an elected official standing up to other elected officials for what he believes, something they praise when it is an official standing up to the Trump Administration. On the other hand you have an elected official trying to uphold federal immigration laws, something the media and the Democrats (redundant) believe should be ignored. To quote Lisa from “My Cousin Vinny’, “What a frigging nightmare”.

    Thank you Sheriff Howard for having the “cajones” to follow the law and not listen to governor who has been bought and is just a puppet for ILLEGAL INVADERS and their ANCHOR BESTARDS.
    Federal law and the constitution come first.

    When citizens don’t follow our laws, they are called criminals. What do we call the hundreds of elected officials, judges, and others in positions of authority and responsibility who direct their subordinates not to follow our laws?

    Any Judge, Senator. Representative, Governor, Mayor, Police Commissar and Sheriff that allows these Sanctuary States and Cities should be removed from office for not upholding the our Constitution that they all swore to uphold.

    As long as we allow these Sanctuary cities and states to exist we DO NOT have equal justice under the law.
    It is time to put any officials that go against the Constitution in jail.

    That sheriff probably won’t be around long. Seems like anyone who wants to uphold the law is quickly marched out the door these days.
