Apparently it was deemed “cruel, unjust and degrading” to protect Americans from having their identity stolen by illegals. The only way to stop the illegals is to not hire them. Too bad the IRS encourages illegals to file taxes using stolen social security numbers. Go ahead Sheriff Joe Arpaio… Round ‘em up, head ‘em up and move ‘em out.
A federal appeals court has lifted a judge’s ruling that effectively blocked Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio from conducting his controversial workplace raids.
Monday’s decision from a panel of judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reverses a preliminary injunction issued last year by U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell. Campbell is presiding over a class-action lawsuit against Arpaio, County Attorney Bill Montgomery and the state of Arizona.
It is unclear how the ruling will affect day-to-day operations of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. Arpaio said Monday that he was talking with his attorneys about the next steps.
“I’m happy with the decision,” he said. “I’m looking at all the options.”

The plaintiffs said the laws were less about public safety and instead designed to work as a deportation machine. In this vein, they said, the state laws were pre-empted by federal immigration rules.
Campbell’s January 2015 ruling tended to agree, and said the laws likely would be found unconstitutional. His injunction barred Arpaio’s deputies from executing their workplace raids and Montgomery’s office from using the laws to prosecute. More
