It's easy for me to say, not

It's easy for me to say, not having been there thinking on my feet, but I think it would have been good to ask these questions in sequence:

1) did you swear an oath to uphold the Constitution of the united States of America?
2) Can you produce a copy of your oath?
3) What does having taken this oath mean to you?
4) Doesn't "upholding" the Constitution mean considering whether every action that you take is in accord with or contrary to it?
5) Have you in this case considered whether the action you are taking is in accord with, or contrary to the Constitution?
6) What conclusion did you come to?
7) How did you come to that conclusion?

Bonus: If the answer to question 5 is "no", produce a copy of the Constitution (particularly the Bill of Rights) and ask the servant of the people to read it right then, so that he can answer "yes" which will then allow him to answer questions 6 and 7.

Bonus 2: Inform him that any actions taken without a copy of the oath on file with the county clerk, or that violate the Constitution (and therefore the oath) are color of law violations, and that it is a crime for one or more persons using power given to him or her by a governmental agency (local, state or federal), to willfully deprive or conspire to deprive another person of any right protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. Read to them Title 18, Section § 242 - Deprivation of rights under color of law:

"Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death."
