ADMIN:  It takes Nads for a Sheriff to stand up to a Governor and refuse to follow his directions.  Well, the state of NY has one.    He is of course a County Official and not subject to the idiotic nonsense of a Left Wing Loon like Como but to come out in official opposition makes an enemy of the highest political power in that state.   Sheriff  Howard is not intimidated by the likes of Como.  Here is the Story so read and smile :


A 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."

Cuomo's counsel Alphonso David fired back Tuesday at the sheriff, noting the order didn't apply to local jurisdictions anyway. 

"New York is leading the way forward in protecting all our state's immigrant families and communities. If the Sheriff had bothered to read the executive order, he would know that it applies to state agencies and authorities, not local jurisdictions," he said in a statement. "Nevertheless, if this Sheriff  intimidates, threatens, harasses or extorts any person for any reason including national origin or ethnicity, he will be breaking the law and no one is above the law." 

But Howard told a Buffalo-area TV station that Cuomo’s message was “causing confusion … to our deputies out on the road. So I thought it was important to address the issue before heading into the weekend.”

Howard also made clear that he takes issue with the broader issue of anybody inside the United States not having to disclose their immigration status or country of origin when asked.

“If I go to Canada, I have to have a passport, which I pay the federal government to get,” Howard told WGRZ-TV. “I cannot comprehend we’d have government rules that say people from other countries have to have something else.” 

Both Howard and Cuomo are seeking reelection. 

Cuomo, considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate as well, said he signed the order “as Washington squabbles over rolling back sensible immigration policy.”

“We are taking action to help protect all New Yorkers from unwarranted targeting by government,” he said in a statement accompanying his order. “New York became the Empire State due to the contributions of immigrants from every corner of the globe and we will not let the politics of fear and intimidation divide us.”

Yeah Governor genius, NY was made the Empire State no doubt with hundreds if not thousands of immigrants. You conveniently forget to mention though that they were LEGAL IMMIGRANTS for the most part. If not, and they were found to be illegal they were escorted out on the first boat going back to where they came from.

New York is leading the way in protecting our immigrants and their communities? Yep, with the HIGHEST taxes in the entire nation. Free housing, free utilities, free food, free (and the best) medical care, plus around $7,000.00 cash they get to “get started” and whatever else is paid for by people that actually work for a living and pay their own way.
You want to see some of their communities or the illegal “immigrant” gangs that run them? Come on over. But God forbid, don’t you dare arm yourself. They can shoot your ass with any told amount or kind of guns and bullets but don’t you even dream about protecting yourself legally. Not here, in the “Empire State”.

The cops aren’t “targeting” anybody for being an illegal alien. Where do they get the time, or desire for that? You get stopped and/or arrested for a crime you committed, you’re here illegally, you get detained in addition to the charge(s) you were originally arrested for. All the Feds want is for the arresting officer, or agency to notify them of the situation with a simple phone call and they’ll pick them up. No big deal snowflakes. They are locked up anyway you idiots. ICE will usually get them the same day or next depending on the charges and what the arresting agency’s needs are regarding the arrest. They work with the agency.

They can spin the story any other way they want. It’s simply not true. But the Dems, Libs, RHINO’s, etc. got their asses kicked and they’ll do and say anything (as they’ve been doing for years) to get back and finish off this country. But remember; “They can’t handle the truth” and they don’t want you to know it.

After all, “Nobody needs 8 bullets to kill a deer!” Welcome to New York.

Regards, David F.

Well said RetDetDave; some on the left just don't get it or don't want to. This is a dumb issue to fight against, every country has laws protecting illegal immigration why is it that it's an issue here?
