Arizona Sheriff’s case against Obama is thrown out


Politico reports that three judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled unanimously on Friday that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio lacked legal standing to challenge President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. Judge Nina Pillard wrote that the Arizona sheriff’s theories about how his office would be impacted by DAPA and expanded DACA were too conjectural and conclusory to allow him to move forward with the case: “Sheriff Arpaio’s content99ion is, at bottom, premised on the speculative prediction that DACA and DAPA will create incentives on third parties to behave in misinformed or irrational ways that would harm him.”
