Klayman Makes Obama Immigration Orders About Muslims

Larry Klayman is making me shake my head again. He and fascist Sheriff Joe Arpaio have filed an amicus brief in United States v Texas, the Supreme Court case involving President Obama's executive orders granting deferred immigration action for undocumented immigrants who have children who are U.S. citizens.

Donald Trump is a lot like Alex Jones in that he often refers to information or support he gets from unnamed friends or insider sources.
