Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling of Wisconsin is standing up to Governor Tony Evers, refusing to enforce the Democrat’s lockdown order, dubbed the “Safer at Home” order, which the sheriff says is unconstitutional.
“Wisconsin law gives the Governor and the Wisconsin DHS the authority to develop emergency measures and enforce rules and orders to protect the public during a health crisis,” said Sheriff Schmaling in a statement, reported WISN 12 News on Friday. “However, state law does not have the power to supersede or suspend the Constitutional rights of American citizens.”
The Safer at Home order was recently extended from April 25 to May 26 by the governor.
