Charges citizen-approved Proposition 100 being thwarted
Charging that a senior trial court judge has ignored the law denying bail to illegal aliens, (The daily paper insists on calling such lawbreakers “migrants.”) Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas, has demanded that Judge Timothy Ryan remove himself from cases involving his office. Ryan is the assistant presiding criminal judge.
Thomas has sought outside legal counsel to move forward with his claim, stating that Ryan has repeatedly exhibited bias against enforcing the provisions of voter approved Proposition 100. Passed last year by an overwhelming 78 percent of Arizona voters, the measure denies bond to illegals charged with serious felonies.
Earlier this week, the Arizona Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision, upheld the Proposition’s constitutionality.
“Proposition 100 was intended to thwart criminals from fleeing justice and accountability in Arizona courtrooms,” Thomas said, regarding the appellate court decision. “This reform is essential if we are to prevent criminal offenders from coming and going as they please across our southern border.”
A hearing is scheduled on the motion today.
