And that's not Trump's famous statement, that comes from the governor of Maine, Paul LePage. Bravo for him too!

How racist of him! And he obviously hates Mexicans and anyone else that comes to our country illegally. The audacity of him to actually expect people to follow the laws, and for his sheriffs to enforce the laws.

Maine Gov. Tells Sheriffs They'll Be Fired for Defying U.S. Immigration Officials

On Tuesday, Republican Maine Gov. Paul LePage warned his state’s sheriffs that he’ll fire anyone who defies his order to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement officials.

In a letter to Maine’s sheriffs, LePage explicitly threatened to remove any sheriff who refuses to comply with Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) requests to extend the detention of arrested individuals suspected of violating federal immigration law.

The governor’s letter was prompted by rouge sheriffs who have said they won’t comply with ICE requests, The Daily Caller reports:

The letter, which references LePage’s authority to dismiss Sheriffs (http://www.maine.gov/tools/whatsnew/index.php?topic=Gov+News&id=767392&v=article2011) who defy his orders, appears to be directed at Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce. Joyce informed ICE in a Sept. 14 letter that he would not comply with requests to detain arrested individuals beyond their scheduled release date, absent a warrant.

“We have a couple sheriffs who say they’re not going to be working with ICE,” LePage told [Radio Host Laura] Ingraham. “Well, unbeknownst to them, the Maine Constitution says if they don’t follow state law, that I can remove them. So there’s likelihood you’re going to be hearing some stories about sheriffs being removed from their duties.”

To a large extent , that damage is permanent.

Fire them and arrest them for refusing to uphold the law.
For putting their own personal politics above their sworn duty and the Rule of Law.-Tyr
