Adam Laxalt has been in office a few days more than three months and is already making noise in many circles by running his office as an Attorney General should run the office.
Laxalt has been warning small businesses of a Utility Scam, warning Nevadans of Predatory Practices during Tax Season, and warning Nevadans of Tax Identity Theft.
The Attorney General has joined — or has teamed up with — others to oppose the immigration reform and has prosecuted government employees that have committed crimes.
In a Las Vegas Tribune March 6 editorial, Thomas Mitchell wrote, “When Nevada’s new Republican attorney general, Adam Laxalt, joined in the lawsuit with 25 other states challenging President Obama’s executive fiat granting amnesty from deportation and granting green cards and Social Security cards to millions of illegal immigrants, Democrats like Sen. Harry Reid were critical of his action and even Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval said the matter should be handled legislatively rather than in the courts.”
The day after the Texas judge’s injunction was issued, Laxalt commented, “Yesterday’s carefully considered, 123-page decision represents a great initial victory for the rule of law and our constitutional system. I am encouraged by the federal court’s thorough analysis of this executive action. This injunction will halt the
executive action and allow for the judiciary to carefully evaluate the legality of President Obama’s unilateral act. As I’ve always insisted, this lawsuit is ultimately about the rule of law, not immigration, and the need for all branches of our government, including the president, to faithfully follow the law.”
The ruling does not mean that anyone will be deported anytime soon, given the administration’s lax enforcement.
AG Laxalt will join the long list of dignitaries that have appeared on Face The Tribune with Rolando Larraz, founder and publisher of the Las Vegas Tribune and Radio Tribune.
Among those guests are: former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak, commissioners Larry Weekly and Chris Giunchigliani, city councilmen Bob Beers and Stavros Anthony, and Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman.
Nevada Supreme Court Justice Michael Douglas has also been a guest on Face The Tribune, along with then-Chief Judge of the Eighth Judicial District Court Jennifer Togliatti, as well as Judge Carolyn Ellsworth;
Family Division judges Bill Henderson and Lisa Brown and former judges Gayle Nathan and Kenneth Pollock have also appeared on the popular radio show.
Las Vegas Justice Court Judge Ann Zimmerman and Las Vegas Municipal Court Chief Judge Bert Brown and Judge Cynthia Leung join the list of dignitaries that have appeared on Face The Tribune radio show.
The radio station was founded in 2011; former congressional candidate Sharron Angle cut the ribbon and appeared on the first Face The Tribune radio show, hosted at that time by Michelle Fiore, now a Nevada Republican Assemblywoman.
