Thyer sworn in as U.S. attorney

Posted By on Fri, Dec 31, 2010 at 12:04 PM

Chris Thyer, the former Jonesboro legislator, was sworn in today as U.S. attorney in a private ceremony by Judge Leon Holmes. He was nominated Dec. 1 by President Obama and confirmed by the Senate Dec. 22. He'll go right to work. A formal ceremony will be held later.

In a prepared release, he said:

"I am humbled and honored that the President and the Senate have entrusted me to fill this important position. I truly stand on the shoulders of the great men and women who have held this position before me. And, just as important, I am very excited to work with some of the finest attorneys in Arkansas who work tirelessly on behalf of our country," Thyer said.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
