Letter to the Editor: Who Enforces Laws?

Once again we have Republicans supporting judges who they say will “enforce” the law.

“Bad” news is the Judicial Branch of our government does not enforce laws.

Their job is to interpret law! That’s why a  judge’s opinion is subject to appeal. It’s an opinion, not an enforcement.

It’s the job of the Executive Branch (including its departments and agencies) to enforce law. If these gentlemen want to enforce the law, they should run for Governor or President, not judge.  

And BTW, the Legislative Branches make the laws.

Our nation is in big trouble if positions exercise “unauthorized” power, which is what authoritarian governments do, not democracies!
