sheriffSheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona has appealed Judge Howell’s ruling and on May 4, 2015, a federal appeals panel will begin hearing arguments against President Obama’s executive decision on immigration.

Several months ago, Arpaio, with the support of Larry Klayman, who is a conservative legal activist, presented a legal challenge claiming that the President’s executive order went against the constitution and the laws of the country.

U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell, who presided over the hearing, dismissed the challenge and stressed that issues related to undocumented immigrants in the country should be dealt with by the policymakers in the capital. She added that the court system was designed to handle genuine and concrete cases where parties are aggrieved and concluded by saying that she did not see how the sheriff was personally harmed or affected by the President’s executive action.
