David G. Campbell is a traitorous United States District Judge for the District of Arizona.
On December 18, 2014 – Judge David Campbell issued a preliminary injunction barring the state of Arizona from enforcing Governor Jan Brewer’s policy of denying the driver’s licenses to about 20,000 illegal immigrants.
The move in Arizona to deny the licenses was a reaction to steps taken by the Obama administration in June 2012 to shield thousands of immigrants from deportation. Brewer’s move marked the nation’s most visible challenge to the Obama policy.
Governor Brewer issued her executive order in August 2012 directing state agencies to deny driver’s licenses and other public benefits to illegal immigrants who get work authorization under the deferred-action program.
Governor Brewer’s attorneys argued the move grew from liability concerns and the desire to reduce the risk of the licenses being used to improperly access public benefits.
In turn, illegal immigrant rights advocates said the rule change made it difficult or impossible for young illegal immigrants to do essential things such as go to school and stores, and find and hold a job.
In July 2014, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals concluded that there was no legitimate state interest in treating the immigrants differently from other noncitizens who could apply for driver’s licenses. Instead, the court suggested Governor Brewer’s order was intended to express hostility toward the immigrants, in part because of the federal government’s policy toward them.
In November 2014, Obama issued a broader executive order on immigration that lifts the threat of deportation from millions of illegal immigrants living in the United States.
A group of 24 states, including Arizona, joined in a federal lawsuit alleging Obama overstepped his constitutional powers in a way that will only worsen the humanitarian problems along the southern U.S. border.
In short, Judge David Campbell has violated his oath to defend the Constitution by injecting the Obama administration policies over States rights. But don’t worry, as an American citizen it’s still a ‘PRIVILEGE’ to have a drivers license, but for illegals that broke laws to enter this country a driver license is now a ‘RIGHT’.
Judge David Campbell issued a preliminary injunction Monday, January 5, 2015 blocking Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery from enforcing two state laws that make it a felony for undocumented immigrants to use stolen identities to obtain work.
The injunction essentially prevents Sheriff Joe Arpaio from continuing to conduct his worksite raids to arrest undocumented workers and Attorney Bill Montgomery from prosecuting them.
Since 2008, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has conducted more than 80 worksite raids, which have resulted in the arrests of more than 700 undocumented workers.
The workers typically agreed to plead guilty to felony charges after being held behind bars for weeks under another state law that made undocumented immigrants charged with serious crimes ineligible to be released on bond. That law also has been thrown out in federal court.
Many of the arrested immigrants were turned over to federal immigration officials and deported. Their felony convictions virtually destroyed any chance of ever being able to return to the U.S. legally.
In the ruling, U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell said that the two state laws that criminalize the act of identify theft for the purpose of obtaining employment are likely unconstitutional because they are pre-empted by federal law.
In a statement, Montgomery said “this ruling underscores yet again the consequences of federal inaction and the Obama Administration’s indifference to the effects of unlawful immigration practices. While pretending to address the concerns of people admittedly violating the law, the victims of identity theft are deprived of the State of Arizona’s protection.”
The two state laws in question, “taking identity of another person or entity” and “aggravated taking identity of another person or entity,” were frequently cited as the legal backing behind Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s workplace raids.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s office said, “The grant money issued to his office from the state of Arizona will be returned to the state, and the deputies assigned to the unit will be reassigned to other duties.”
