Resolution No. 2021-19

A Resolution to Join the Receptionist/Clerical  Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association

Pursuant to the powers and duties bestowed upon it by our citizens, the Elko County Commission does hereby resolve that any federal officer, agent, or employee, regardless of supposed congressional authorization, is required to obey and observe limitations consisting of the enumerated powers as detailed within Article I Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill Of Rights. 

The people of these United States are, and have a right to be, free and independent, and these rights are derived from the “Law of Nature and nature’s God.” As such, they must be free from infringements on the right to keep and bear arms, unreasonable searches and seizures, capricious detainments and every other natural right whether enumerated or not, pursuant to the 9th Amendment. 

We further reaffirm that “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” (10th amendment)

Furthermore, we maintain that no agency established by the U.S. Congress can develop its own policies or regulations which supersede the Bill of Rights or the Constitution, nor does the executive branch have the power to make law, overturn law or set aside law. 

THEREFORE, IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT, the following abuses will not be allowed or tolerated within Elko County: 

1) Orders restricting citizens from the free exercise of their religion or the right to freely assemble as guaranteed in the First Amendment. 

2) Orders depriving its citizens of “life, liberty or property, without the due process of law” as guaranteed in the Fifth Amendment. 

3) Registration of personal firearms under any circumstances. 

4) Confiscation of firearms without probable cause, due process, and constitutionally compliant warrants issued by a local or state jurisdiction.

 5) Audits or searches of a citizen’s personal affairs or finances without probable cause, due process, and constitutionally compliant warrants issued by a local or state jurisdiction. 

6) Inspections of person or property without probable cause and constitutionally compliant warrants as required by the 4th Amendment and issued by a local or state jurisdiction. 

7) The detainment or search of citizens without probable cause and proper due process compliance, or the informed consent of the citizen. 

8) Arrests with continued incarcerations without charges and complete due process, including, but not limited to public and speedy jury trials, in a court of state or local jurisdiction.

9) Domestic utilization of our nation’s military or federal agencies operating under power granted under the laws of war against American citizens. 

10) Arrest of citizens or seizure of persons or property or any other action in violation of any constitutional provision under the United States constitution by federal law enforcement.


That the Elko County Board of Commissioners proudly joins the Constitutional Sheriffs and Police Officers Association and that the undersigned commissioners do hereby denounce any acts or agencies that promote the aforementioned practices. All actions by the federal government and its agents will conform strictly and implicitly with the principles expressed within the United States Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights. 

That federal law enforcement agencies are encouraged to continue to consult and work closely with local law enforcement and the District Attorney to assure that the people’s rights guaranteed under the United States Constitution are protected and preserved from any unlawful encroachments. 

There is no greater obligation or responsibility of any government officer than to protect the rights of the people. Thus, any conduct contrary to the United States Constitution, Declaration of Independence, or the Bill of Rights will be dealt with as criminal activity. 

PROPOSED by Commissioner Rex Steninger.
SECONDED by Commissioner Cliff Eklund.
PASSED and ADOPTED this 2nd day of June, 2021.
