Our friends from the old country are sure to hold his hands and touch his head before they're through paying their last respects." "Rest assured, Mrs. Trump," comforted the under- taker. "I'll fix it so that toupee will never come off." Sure enough, the day of the wake the old timers were giving Donald's ancient corpse quite a going over, but the toupee stayed firmly in place. At the end of the day, a delighted Mrs. Trump offered the undertaker an extra thousand dollars for handling the matter so professionally. "Oh, I couldn't possibly accept your money," protested the undertaker. "What's a few nails?" Metropolitan Opera House At the evening performance, the head usher at the Metropolitan Opera House was quite surprised.

The usher didn't think much of this complaint, but promised he would check into it soon. At the end of the nights performance in an area close to the first complaint, a second little lady bent down and whispered in his ear, "Sir, I believe I was sexually harassed!" This time, he knew it had to be taken care of soon. A few guests had remained in the opera house, and he decided to go back and question them, to see if they had any knowledge of what was going on. He found one old man crawling along the opera house floor underneath the seats and stooped down to question him. "Excuse me, sir, can I help you?" A bald Donald Trump looked up and said, "Well, sonny, you sure can. I've lost my toupee and I'm trying to find it. I thought I'd found it twice, but they were both parted in the middle...and mine's parted on the side!"

INDEFENSIBLE
Why Is My Sister Dead, Sheriff Clarke?
CASEY TOLAN
11.30.16 11:03 PM ET
MILWAUKEE—On July 18, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. strode onto the stage of the Republican National Convention. In a fiery speech, he called Black Lives Matter protests “anarchy,” praised Donald Trump’s “belief in our American system of justice,” and declared, “I would like to make something very clear: blue lives matter.”
Four days earlier, Shadé Swayzer was giving birth in the jail that Clarke runs. She went into labor in a solitary confinement cell, and when she cried for help, according to a recently filed lawsuit, a guard laughed at her and left her alone. By the time medical staff checked on her the next morning, the lawsuit reads, her newborn baby was dead.
Swayzer’s baby wasn’t the only person to die in the Milwaukee County Jail. Since April, as Clarke has campaigned around the country for Trump, three other inmates have died in his custody. One was a 38-year-old with mental health issues who died of “profound dehydration”—thirst—after guards apparently turned off the water in his cell.

Now Clarke, a darling of the Tea Party and Fox News and known for his inflammatory statements, is reportedly in the running to be Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security. He met with the President-elect at Trump Tower on Monday afternoon, decked out in his trademark cowboy hat.
Kristina Fiebrink, 38, was found unresponsive in her cell on August 28. Inmates who talked to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel said they heard her screaming for help overnight but no guards came to check on her.
Fiebrink’s brother Leon Limon said it was hard to imagine Clarke running detention centers around the country.

“We can’t even get any answers here,” Limon told the Daily Beast. “He’s not doing anything for the four families. It seems like he only cares about trying to help himself.” He said sheriff’s deputies investigating his sister’s death had only called him twice in the last three months: One time to ask a few questions and another time when they accidentally dialed his number.
“It’s so haunting to me because I wonder, ‘Did she suffer all night long?’” he said.
If he gets the Homeland Security job, Clarke would be in charge of the federal government’s 111 immigration detention centers and the more than 42,000 detainees held in them. The families of the inmates who died in the Milwaukee jail say his disregard for their loved ones’ safety should raise alarm bells about that prospect.

“Sheriff Clarke needs to take responsibility for the people dying in his jail,” said Erik Heipt, a lawyer for the family of Terrill Thomas, the inmate who died of thirst.
Fellow inmates told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that guards shut off the water in Thomas’ solitary confinement cell and ignored him as he begged for water for days. “The family doesn’t understand how something like this could happen in an American jail,” Heipt said. “They want answers and they want accountability.”
Clarke’s office issued a statement saying the sheriff would not comment (PDF) until “the completion of all investigative and review processes, and any resultant civil litigation.” Thomas was the first inmate to die this year, on April 24, and Swayzer’s newborn baby died on July 14.
“There appears to be an unfortunate and deadly pattern (in the jail),” said Jason Jankowski, the lawyer representing Swayzer, who he said was depressed and distraught. “It has basically compromised the health and safety of those unfortunate people who enter and receive inhumanely substandard care.”
Michael Madden, 29, died after having a seizure on October 28. A fellow inmate told a local Fox News channel that a guard had picked him up and then let him fall, hitting his head. The same day Madden died, Clarke tweeted “Mrs Bill Clinton is an empty pantsuit.”
Why have there been so many deaths over a short time period? In each of the cases, investigations are ongoing and there are more questions than answers. But some observers point to its substandard healthcare.
Since 2002, Dr. Ronald Shansky has been visiting the jail twice a year as part of a consent decree. When he visited earlier this month, 37 percent of the health care positions in the jail’s staff were vacant, up from 30 percent this spring, he wrote in a report.
“There’s been no improvement,” Shansky told The Daily Beast. “Questions certainly can be raised about the occurrence of these four recent deaths and the relationship to officer shortages,” he wrote in the report.
The increasing vacancies “suggests a snowball effect,” said Pete Koneazny, a lawyer with the Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee who has been involved in litigation over the prison for decades. He said the jail should improve training for staff about handling inmates with mental health issues. “We see no signs that [Clarke] has taken any particular responsibility for these deaths,” he said.
The prison’s healthcare is run by Armor Correctional Health Medical Services, a private company in Miami. The New York State Attorney General sued the company earlier this year, alleging that its neglect of inmates in a jail on Long Island had led to five inmate deaths.
Since April, Sheriff Clarke has refused to publicly address the four deaths, leaving the inmates’ family members in the dark. Meanwhile, he’s been traveling around the country to give speeches to conservative groups and at Trump campaign events. In 2015, he reported receiving more than $150,000 in free travel, speaking fees and gifts.
“If the criteria is someone who can face terrorists who want to appear on cable TV talk shows, then he’s the guy,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett told the Daily Beast. “I’ve been mayor for 12 and a half years and in my 12 and a half years I’ve never once seen him at the scene of a crime.”
Barrett said he was especially concerned that Clarke hadn’t made public statements about the jail deaths, and suggested that state authorities should step in to investigate the facility.
“The fact that you would be stonewalling after four deaths at an institution under your command is extremely troubling,” Barrett said.
Christine Neumann-Ortiz, the executive director of Milwaukee immigrant rights group Voces de la Frontera, said his leadership of the jail suggests that he wouldn’t care about what happens to immigrants in detention centers.
“He’s too busy promoting himself to really care about what are the conditions and the treatment for the people within the jail,” Neumann-Ortiz said.
Her group is suing Clarke over his department’s refusal to release information about which immigrants he refers to federal authorities.
The sheriff’s office referred a request for comment about the deaths to Milwaukee County’s counsel due to the pending lawsuits. The counsel did not respond to a request for comment. Armor Correctional Health also did not respond to a request for comment.
Clarke isn’t a shoe-in for Homeland Security—his fellow hard-line Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz. is also seen as a contender. Some locals doubt that even a Republican-controlled Senate would confirm Clarke after hearing the long list of his more controversial statements.
He’s called for American citizens to be treated as “enemy combatants.” He’s suggested sending up to 1 million people who use”Jihadi rhetoric” online to the Guantanamo Bay prison. During the presidential campaign, he repeatedly referred to Hillary Clinton as “Mrs. Bill Clinton” and accused her of being a “straight-up cop hater” who is “in bed with criminals.” Last month, he tweeted “pitchforks and torches time” with a picture of an angry mob.
But there are reasons to think Clarke could be high on Trump’s shortlist. “He was a vocal supporter of Trump’s campaign, even while other elected officials were jumping ship.” As an African-American and a registered Democrat, Clarke would also bring some diversity to a cabinet that is so far mostly white.
And Clarke’s worldview and demeanor seem to fit Trump’s cabinet like a puzzle piece.
“He’s someone who is dangerous, divisive, has no regard for civil or constitutional rights and he’s really driven by his ego,” Neumann-Ortiz said. “His temperament is a carbon copy of Trump himself.”

One of the top priorities at the start of the presidential transition process is to staff the administration of President-elect Donald Trump.

Trump has already announced several Cabinet picks and others whose positions are Cabinet-level, with more coming in the days and weeks ahead.

Even though Trump has announced some of his Cabinet picks, all Cabinet-level appointments need to be confirmed by the Senate before they are officially appointed.

Here is the growing list of Cabinet picks:



Attorney General
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. - Offer announced on Nov. 18




Sessions, the senator from Alabama who is currently in his fourth term, has been a longtime Trump supporter who campaigned with him throughout the election. Click here to learn more about Sessions.



Education Secretary
Betsy DeVos - Offer announced on Nov. 23




DeVos, a Michigan education activist and major GOP donor, is an advocate for school choice and charter schools, and has drawn criticism in conservative circles for being associated with groups that support Common Core. Click here for more information about DeVos.



Secretary of Health and Human Services
Rep. Tom Price - Offer announced on Nov. 28




The Georgia Republican, who met with Trump in New York City earlier this month, is a longtime Obamacare critic and was one of the first House committee chairmen to endorse the presidential candidate. Click here to read more about the selection of Price.



Secretary of Transportation
Elaine Chao - Offer announced Nov. 29




Chao previously served as labor secretary for former President George W. Bush and was the only Cabinet official to serve through all eight years of his presidency. Click here to learn more about the selection of Chao.



Secretary of Treasury
Steven Mnuchin - Announced Nov. 30




Mnuchin worked for 17 years at Goldman Sachs where he served as the Chief Information Officer. He also founded the investment firm Dune Capital Management and the entertainment financing company RatPac-Dune Entertainment. Click here to learn more about the selection of Mnuchin.



Secretary of Commerce
Wilbur Ross - Announced Nov. 30




Ross is a billionaire investor and founder of the investment firm W.L. Ross and Co. Ross has been described as the "King of Bankruptcy" for his work restructuring failed companies, and was a key economic adviser to Trump during his run for the presidency.

There have been several other high-profile picks, and those positions are categorized as Cabinet-level posts:



Chief of Staff
Reince Priebus - Appointed Nov. 13. This is the only Cabinet-level position that does not need Senate confirmation.




The selection of Priebus as Trump's chief of staff was the first Cabinet-level announcement. Click here to read more about the Republican National Committee chairman and his role in Trump's campaign.



Ambassador to the United Nations
Gov. Nikki Haley - Offer announced on Nov. 23. This position requires Senate confirmation.




Haley, the child of Indian immigrants, brings diversity to the nascent administration but has had little international experience as governor of South Carolina. Click here to read more about Haley.

And then there were two other early announcements that are senior positions but outside of the Cabinet:



National Security Advisor (non-Cabinet senior position)
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.) - Offer announced Nov. 18




Flynn was a prominent campaign surrogate for Trump throughout the election cycle, often introducing the candidate at rallies and appearing on television in support of Trump. Click here to read more about Flynn.



CIA Director (non-Cabinet agency position)
Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan. - Offer announced Nov. 18. This position requires Senate confirmation.




Pompeo, who supported Sen. Marco Rubio during the GOP primaries, represents Kansas’ 4th Congressional District. Click here to learn more about Pompeo.

A federal district court judge in Arizona has upheld two identity theft laws used to prosecute illegal aliens in employment raids by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The case involves the constitutionality of two Arizona laws that provide for criminal penalties when an act of identity theft is done with the intent to obtain or continue employment (statute amended in 2007 and 2008 to apply specifically to the use of false identities to obtain employment), and another statute that makes it a crime to commit forgery (passed in 1977).

Most of the tips that generated investigations by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) were from citizens in the community about a place of business or its employees and were made on telephone and email hotlines set up by the MCSO. The department would investigate, and if there was evidence of a crime, would apply for and execute a search warrant for the employment worksite. While executing the warrant, the MCSO would seize employment files and arrest workers they believed had committed identity theft or forgery.

The MCSO conducted over 80 workplace investigations resulting in the arrest of 806 employees who “were almost exclusively unauthorized aliens,” the Court’s Order said.

The plaintiffs argued that the three Arizona State laws were preempted under federal law when applied to illegal aliens who commit fraud to show authorization to work under federal immigration law, or when they do so during the federal employment verification process. The plaintiffs also complained that the two identify theft statutes were enacted with the purpose of discriminating against illegal aliens and are on their face invalid under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. They filed the lawsuit to seek a judicial declaration and an injunction to block the application of the laws.

The case styled Puente Arizona, et al. v. Joseph M. Arpaio, et al., was filed by plaintiffs which included two illegal aliens whom had been convicted of identity theft felonies in Arizona. They both used false names to obtain employment. Several residents of Marciopa County who object to their tax dollars being used to prosecute illegal aliens for identity theft or forgery when trying to obtain employments are also plaintiffs.

Plaintiff Puente is an organization in Arizona that according to its website, “The Puente Human Rights Movement is a grassroots migrant justice organization based in Phoenix, Arizona. We develop, educate, and empower migrant communities to protect and defend our families and ourselves,” it states. They say they were “formed in 2007 in response to the first agreement between policy and federal immigration (287g) in Arizona.” They add, “This agreement led to cruel attacks on our community at the hands of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.”

Numerous plaintiffs, on behalf of themselves and “all others similarly situated,” sued Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, and Robert Halliday, director of the Arizona Department of Public Safety (all sued in their official capacities), as well as, the State of Arizona and Maricopa County. The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) was also named as a defendant.

United States District Judge David Campbell granted the defendants’ motion for summary judgment on the equal protection argument. As to the preemption claim, the judge granted in part plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment (with respect to the preemption of defendants’ use of federal Form I-9 and attached documents but denied it as to the other claims) and the judge did the same on defendants’ motion (granted on other preemption claims but denied as to use of Form I-9). In short, the judge found that Arizona officials cannot use Form I-9s to prosecute based on federal preemption grounds but it would not prevent the use of other fraudulent documents. Movants on a motion for summary judgment have the burden to show that there is an absence of a genuine issue of material fact.

Judge Campbell wrote in his opinion, “After carefully reviewing these statutes, the Court cannot conclude that Congress has expressed a clear and manifest intent to occupy the field of unauthorized alien fraud in seeking employment.”

The Court heard oral arguments on October 13, 2016.

The judge referred to the illegal aliens in his order as “unauthorized aliens.” His order, attached below, is divided into sections that discuss the federal laws and regulations that govern the employment of illegal aliens, and the Arizona state laws challenged as preempted and unconstitutional by the plaintiffs. A history and background of the case is also included, as are the facts relating to Arpaio’s Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and the Office of the County Attorney.

The Order states that Sheriff Arpaio “acknowledges that a majority of those referred by law enforcement agencies for identity theft prosecutions are unauthorized aliens.” Ninety-three percent of the MCSO referrals of identity theft and forgery cases were from investigations by the MCSO.

The executive director and general counsel for the Immigration Law Reform Institute (IRLI), Dale L. Wilcox told Breitbart Texas, “This is very much a welcome decision. But, unfortunately, it’s a surprising one. Federal judges all over the country have routinely recognized the ‘constitutional rights’ of illegal aliens in their knocking back of laws passed by states wishing to restrain effects of mass illegal immigration.”

Wilcox added, “Thankfully, this decision struck a blow against a very serious problem in this country, mass identity theft; an offense that disproportionately hurts American children.”

The plaintiffs have until on or before December 7 to file a memorandum on the appropriate remedy in the case, and defendants have until December 21 to file a response. Plaintiffs must file any reply to the defendants’ response on or before January 4. A memorandum on whether plaintiff is entitled to injunctive relief and any response and reply are ordered due under the same timelines.

The judge noted in his Order that “Sheriff Arpaio recently lost a general election and will no longer be in office to pursue the policies about which Plaintiffs complain.”

Arpaio was officially charged with criminal contempt-of-court over claims he ignored a judge’s order in a racial profiling case, as reported by Breitbart Texas on October 25. The move by the federal government came just two weeks before Arpaio stood before the voters of Maricopa County for re-election to his seventh term. Breitbart Texas had reported on October 11 that prosecutors for the Department of Justice were preparing charges for his alleged violations of a court order on racial profiling. At that time, Judge Susan Bolton asked the prosecutors to write a “show cause order” for her to sign.

Arpaio claimed the charges by the Obama Justice Department are politically motivated in an election ad, Fox News reported. Arpaio’s lawyer, Mel McDonald told Fox News he believed “that when the final chapter is written, he (Arpaio) will be vindicated.”

Arpaio was sued by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), and a law firm that Eric H. Holder, Jr. works for. Holder was a partner at the firm for six years prior to his appointment as U.S. Attorney General, and Holder returned to the firm after he left his post. The law firm has been reported as “a key player in the opposition to Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration law.”

Arpaio criticized Holder for among other things, how he handled Operation Fast and Furious, and for not being a supporter of peace officers. Holder was held in contempt of Congress in June 2012 over the ATF’s Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. There were 255 House members who voted to hold the sitting Attorney General in contempt, including 17 Democrats. Holder and the DOJ would not comply with an October 2011 subpoena to turn over thousands of documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. Breitbart Texas has reported extensively about Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was slain in Arizona while on patrol. Two of the guns involved in the ambush were eventually tied to the Fast and Furious operation. After two officers were shot execution-style in New York, Arpaio criticized New York Mayor Bill De Blasio and Attorney General Eric Holder.

Arpaio has long been a critic of President Obama. In June 2014, Breitbart TV reported that Arpaio told Newsmax TV that he believes Obama intentionally caused the current crisis of thousands of unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border to force “Congress to do something” or “shove some more executive orders down our throat.”

AZfamily.com reported that the retired police officer that defeated Arpaio in the general election in November, Paul Penzone, says he has no plans to resume the illegal alien employment raids.
