Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was rebuffed by a federal appeals court last week in his suit against President Obama’s executive amnesty.

The District of Columbia appellate court threw out Arpaio’s case arguing that lacks standing to file suit against the president.

Arpaio responded that the decision comes as no surprise and that his legal team will be taking the case to the Supreme Court.

Should the Supreme Court allow his case to move forward it would leap-frog the suit brought by the 26-state coalition against executive amnesty which currently is awaiting a hearing in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
