Sheriffs Refuse to Enforce ‘Unconstitutional’ Stay-at-Home Orders

by Beth Baumann, Townhall:

Governors across the nation have issued stay-at-home orders. Many have extended them once or twice. Some have even gone so far as to threaten to slap residents with fines. But what these governors are counting on is local police departments and sheriffs to enforce their orders. Sheriffs from around the country are standing up and refusing to enforce the orders because they believe them to be unconstitutional.

Two Arizona Sheriffs – Doug Schuster of Mohave County and Mark Lamb of Pinal County – said they will not enforce Gov. Doug Ducey’s (R) stay-at-home order. Both Schuster and Lamb agreed to talk with residents about violating the governor’s order but they would not arrest those who refuse to comply, Arizona Central reported.
