On the Arizona loyalty oath of office

From the AZ Secretary of State web site: "Before candidates elected to office or employees of the state may begin work, they must take a loyalty oath of office. In the oath the candidate elect or employee solemnly swears or affirms they will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the state of Arizona and defend the U.S. and Arizona against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and states they will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of their office. "

Here is the oath from ARS 38.231.

>>E. In addition to any other form of oath or affirmation specifically provided by law for an officer or employee, before any officer or employee enters upon the duties of the office or employment, the officer or employee shall take and subscribe the following oath or affirmation:

>>State of Arizona, County of ______________ I, _____________________

>>(type or print name)

>>do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and defend them against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of the office of ______________________ (name of office) ________________________ according to the best of my ability, so help me God (or so I do affirm).

>>______________________________________

>>(signature of officer or employee)

So this is what each elected official, Governor and legislators included, swear to do, this is what they say: "I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and defend them against all enemies, foreign and domestic".

What is there about this oath that the iodiotors in the azleg do not understand? Are they not breaking their oath of office by voting for sovereignty bills? And what if Il Duce signs off on one or more of the sovereignty bills currently on his desk? Will he not be in violation of his own oath of office? Have these officials become domestic enemies of the United States?
