Sheriffs Refuse to Enforce Dem Gov’s Lockdown Orders
Article from The Daily Wire by Amanda Prestigiacomo.
As thousands of Michigan residents gathered in protest against Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s draconian and bizarrely inconsistent lockdown measures, four sheriffs from northern Michigan counties released a statement saying they will not be enforcing some of the Democrat’s orders, calling it an “overstepping” of executive authority.
