'America's Toughest Sheriff' loses immigration powers


Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced Tuesday that the federal government had stripped his office of its authority to patrol for illegal immigrants.

Immigration news doesn’t get much bigger than Sheriff Arpaio. The Maricopa County, Arizona sheriff is the most well known sheriff in the immigration debate. He’s famous for his hard-line, no apologies approach.

He makes inmates wear pink. He kept many illegal immigrants in a segregated enclosure known as Tent City where temperatures were so high that groups accused him of human rights violations.

He is a hero of the right and a villain to the left.

Arpaio says he’s not giving up. He plans to use continue his controversial “crime suppression operations,” despite DHS’s decision to not renew an agreement that would allow the sheriff to continue immigration enforcement on the streets, according to the East Valley Tribune.

“It’s all politics,” said Arpaio, who spent much of an afternoon news conference Tuesday wagging his finger, waving his arms and snarling at reporters.

The department of Justice and other federal agencies are investigating the sheriff’s office on accusations of racial profiling during the operations, the paper says.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, with some 160 federally trained deputies, is the largest in the program and the most closely scrutinized by people on all sides of the immigration debate, according to the New York Times.

Arpaio said the vast majority of the 33,000 arrests of illegal immigrants his office has made in the past two years under the agreement followed a check on the immigration status of people in jails. About 300 have been arrested in the field during “crime suppression” operations, he said.

The way you treat helpless people who are under your control says more about your character than anything else you do.

Joe Arpaio is a petty, vindictive, playground bully. I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that he tortured small animals as a child. He is a hero only to people who are similarly disposed.

He is NOT a hero of America. He is, in fact, as unamerican as you can get.

Just got the two landscapers at our condo fired. Keep reporting anyone you think may be illegal. Report, report and report. IF you see them working in the schools, contact the school system. Go to every possible source to complain and make it hard on these people. If you hire a contractor for your home, ask if his workers are legal. Roofers, ask if they are legal. If you see government contractors using mexicans, ask if they are legal. If they move in near you make it as difficult as possible. I was behind two wetbacks in Burge King the other day. Can you beleive this BURGER KING has a picture menus and allows them to point to the items. When will Burger King accept pasos?

"He kept many illegal immigrants in a segregated enclosure known as Tent City..."

Franco, this studied use of the word "segregated" is meant to put us in mind of black-white segregation. But that's just a rhetorical trick...the analogy doesn't work. Illegals immigrants are not supposed to be here, and are breaking Federal law by their presence. Segregation (in the civil-rights connotation) has absolutely nothing to do with it.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a with-it black write angrily about this - using the argument for helping blacks as a false argument for helping illegals. The situation is made worse because the economic and cultural fallout from illegal immigrant Mexicans falls directly on black people. It's very bad for them!

Resign from this beat, Franco. You can never escape your inborn La Raza tendency towards your co-ethnics. And even if you say you can, informed Americans will never believe it.

Duh, are you sure you want to quote that song? Your followup comment sounded pretty conservative. First, Woody Guthrie didn't write it — Florence Reese did. And it was Pete Seeger who made it famous. It was a strongly pro-union organizing anthem from the coal-mining days, and was resurrected as a civil rights song in the 1960s. Many insisted Seeger was a communist.

Arpaio will continue fight against illegals

by Jim Cross
October 5th, 2009
http://ktar.com/index.php?nid=6&sid=1216834#

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has vowed not to change his policies on illegal immigration despite a change in federal rules.

A new deal with Immigration and Customs Enforcement allows the sheriff to screen inmates booked into the county jail for immigration status, but does not extend to street enforcement.

"Nothing will change. Stay tuned," Arpaio told News/Talk 92-3 KTAR's Jay Lawrence Sunday night.

Arpaio said he will continue his policies, including crime suppression sweeps, under state human smuggling laws.

"I don't need the feds to do my crime suppression, to opt to arrest illegals," Arpaio said. "I can do it without the federal authority."

The sheriff said he plans another crime suppression sweep soon "to show Washington and everybody else, I'm not changing. I will not be intimidated by Congress, by alleged racial profiling investigations by the Justice Department."

He said he will continue to deliver illegal immigrants to ICE.

"I hope they accept them. If they don't, I'll bring them myself to the border."

Arpaio said the changes are pure politics by the Obama Administration and congressional Democrats. He said he believes they are using him as an example to end the policy that allows local law enforcement officers to arrest illegal immigrants.

Why do people not understand that ILLEGAL means not legal. If you are breaking the law, you should face the music. We should not allow amnesty for illegal immigrants any more than we allow amnesty for illegal drugs. Come here legally and we welcome you. Sneak in illegally and we do not.

Anonymous said...

To all of you who think Joe Arpaio is a hero and a fine American... If someone commits a crime, why does it matter whether or not they're legal? If a born-and-bred American citizen robs, rapes or murders someone, do they deserve better treatment than someone here illegally? "At least an English-speaking American killed my son." That's ludicrous.

Don't confuse bigotry, hatred, and abuse of power with heroism and justice.

i don't know what the hubbub is about arresting illegal aliens. it's quite simple and clear, to me. those here illegally are criminals. however, myriad democrats and a paucity of republicans along criminal sympathizers have thrown up road block after road block to prevent the law from being enforced. many of these illegals, i assure you, are carrying disease (such as TB), have criminal records to go with their newest crime, and have no care to adopt our customs and language, among several other major issues. aside from these issues, more than a few politicians and groups such as La Raza and ACORN are going to great lengths to legitimize these criminals to get their vote, support, etc. these shady politicians and groups would go as far as to legitimize rapists and child molesters if it guaranteed them votes. I support the Sheriff in his efforts, obligations, and duty to protect the people and uphold the laws of Arizona. it could be the case that federal usurpation of state law is a violation of state sovereignty.

There are two issues here, one of which is overt racism (3:37; 3:56). It's this sort of racism that makes it very easy for liberals to defend the non-enforcement of our borders. They just assume that anyone who is against illegal immigration is racist; just as they make the presumption that anyone who opposes Obama's policies is also racist. Comments like the ones at those times do not help refute their claims.

As for the actual crime of illegal immigration, there should be a healthy discussion regarding our obviously failed policy in this regard. Should we ramp up enforcement to prevent more illegals from coming and help send the ones back who are criminals by living here illegally? Or should we change the immigration laws to more resemble the open borders we had 100 years ago when European immigrants flooded Ellis Island? There are pros and cons to both.

As for whether this specific sheriff can use extreme methods of enforcing this one particular law; be careful when you use the phrase "illegal is illegal" to provide blanket protection from scrutiny of law enforcement activities. To use an extreme example in the other direction: would you support prison sentences and extreme punishment for enforcing something as menial as driving 61 MPH on I-85? I mean, technically speaking, "Illegal is Illegal". I know it's comparing apples to shovels, but it's something to think about when we consider this situation.

To Anon 4:48, I am Anon 4:42. I'm not encouraging anyone to enforce only certain laws, nor am I saying that it's wrong to enforce laws regarding illegal immigration.

What I *am* saying is that Joe Arpaio is deciding which laws to enforce and how to enforce them. There are pedophiles, rapists and murderers sitting in air-conditioned comfort in his jail waiting for trial... but illegal immigrants are set apart from the other criminals by wearing pink and being houses in tents.

If you want to enforce the law, enforce the law. But do it in ACCORDANCE with the law, not on your own terms.

It's very hard to take the arguments of people seriously who would use the term "wetback" in their comments... That shows me you're racist, not that you care about how laws regarding illegal immigration are enforced.

Joe Arpaio wants America to become another Russia !

This guy Joe Arpaio won't progress in America with such schemes of Racial Profiling ( Hidden Brutal Sadistic Racism )

Fortunately, America is not Russia. In Russia brutal cossacks and other thugs are performing the most brutal acts of Racism against the Russian Minorities.

There are Progroms against the Russian Turks and other Minorities.

America has received some of these Russian Turks.

At the same time that Russia has a Horrible Problem of Population Depletion, extremely low birth rates, infertility, sickenes, HIV AIDS, Drunkness and drugs everywhere, Poverty, etc ... And that is not all, Russia is a path and way for the Heroine of Afghanistan. Russia is a paradise for narcos and mafiosi.

Russia is also invaded by corruption everywhere and by thugs that act as if they were official authorities.

Thas is the same strategy of the Minutemen and Joe Arpaio.

I have trust in America. I think that these local scoundrels and thugs are going to be defeated by History and by a Noble Party ( The Democrats ) and Mr Obama.

Even if the Dems lose a few seats in 2010, Mr Obama will be reelected in 2012. We will work for that.

And all these despicable histrionics and ridiculous clowns of Hate TV and Hate Media will suffer the Fate of being Forgotten and being a footnote in the Big Story and Big Saga of Mr Obama ( a Great President ).

Racists have been losing, are losing, and will continue losing.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a national treasure in the fight against illegal immigration

Maricopa County, Arizona is the best area in the country for reliable illegal alien crime statistics. The county sheriff, Joe Arpaio, has aggressively decided to combat illegal alien crime in his county. He has partnered with federal ICE through the 287 (g) program which trains local law enforcement personnel in determining and dealing with illegal aliens. He has a well staffed Triple I Unit (Illegal Immigrant Interdiction Unit). That is until being subverted by the Obama administration.

The MCAO report from County Attorney Andrew Thomas features these startling numbers for prosecuted felony cases in Maricopa County, Arizona:

In 2007, illegal immigrants accounted for:

10% of sex crimes convictions
11% of murders convictions
13% of stolen cars convictions
13% of aggravated assaults convictions
17% of those sentenced for violent crimes
19% of those sentenced for property crimes
20% of those sentenced for felony DUI.
21% of crimes committed with weapons
34% of those sentenced for the manufacture, sale or transport of drugs
36% of those sentenced for kidnapping
44% of forgeries
50% of those sentenced for crimes related to "chop shops"
85% of false ID convictions
96% of smuggling convictions

Illegal immigrants make up 19 percent of those convicted of crimes in Maricopa County and 21 percent of those in county jails.

Illegal immigrants only make up an estimated 9 percent of the county’s population.

It is estimated that each violent crime cost citizens $20,000, and each property crime cost citizens $4363 per offense.

I guess many of you don't know that His whole prison is "Tent City" not just where he put the illegals. They ALL wear pink... It would not hurt you to do a little research before making your comments. I applaud his way of doing things. Mainly...criminals legal or illegal are just that "Criminals", "law breakers"... they deserve to be there.
Why is it we think we have to put these "criminals" in the Hilton or some other luxury facility? Most jails and prisons offer much more in the way of accomodations, food, recreation, health care, etc. than 98% of the law abiding poor have in this country. That in itself is criminal in my opinion.
As far as separating the illegals from the other inmates...probably is not a bad idea... may have even been for their own safety. But guess that was not even considered before some of the posts went on here.

No Amnesty

Mr. President, No amnesty! The guest worker program is a U.S. Chamber of Commerce - MALDEF - La Raza scheme that means open borders forever. Though President Obama may declare. “I oppose amnesty!” every time he speaks, his guest worker program is amnesty, both for the illegals and for the businesses that hired them. Under Obamas's plan, soon to be announced, no one is punished. Those who hired the illegals get blanket pardons. Those who broke in are allowed to stay, work six years, return home on sabbatical, come back to their jobs, and be put on a path to U.S. citizenship. Those who cheated win. That is amnesty.

Amnesties following civil wars are often necessary to heal a nation. But as people go unpunished for crimes committed, amnesties undermine the rule of law – for they say to the scofflaw: Don’t be a fool, cross the border, break their laws, and in time, you too will receive amnesty.

Obama's amnesty would make fools of the millions who have waited in line for years for the privilege of coming to America. It would demoralize a U.S. Border Patrol whose agents daily risk their lives to defend our borders. Should those agents decide not to do their duty, how could we then blame them when the president of the United States refuses to do his duty?

If Congress votes the Obama amnesty, the flood never ends. The world will see America as a morally befuddled and flabby nation that lacks the toughness to order out of its house those who have walked in and demanded all the rights of family (citizens).

This is all about choice and responsibility: Everyone can choose to commit a crime, but if they do they may have to pay the price. We also see a large portion of our government "choosing" to support illegal aliens and what they do to our country. Well, we have a choice. That choice is to let them run over us or vote them out of office. Until you have a chance to vote them out you need to contact them and let them know how you feel. A written letter gets their attention better than an email.

The well-respected Washington publication CongressDaily is reporting that the conference committee charged with reconciling the Homeland Security spending bill has approved a reauthorization of E-Verify for three years.

Without a reauthorization, E-Verify was set to expire last month. Congress did include a temporary extension in a continuing resolution bill while the FY2010 Homeland Security spending bill awaits reconciliation. The original amendment that was passed by the Senate would have permanently reauthorized E-Verify.

There were three other immigration-related amendments passed by the Senate. One would have ensured the completion of 700 miles of fencing along the Southern border, but that amendment was stripped before the bill even went to committee. There is still no word on two other amendments that would allow federal contractors to use E-Verify to check the employment eligibility of exisitng employees and an amendment that would restart the No-Match program. DHS rescinded the No-Match program, which sends letters to companies that submit information to the IRS with a discrepancy between the employee's name and social security number.

Once fully reconciled by the conference committee, the bill will have to be passed by both chambers of Congress.

It is media hype to say he kept some illegals in tent city. The majority of all prisoners are kept in tent city, thats what he is famous for doing. His rational is that our troops live in tents and if its good enough for them, its good enough for criminals. I agree. Illegal or not, we need to stop treating criminals like we owe them something. These prisons with TV, Gyms, Libraries, cafaterias, all the luxuries of home. Why would you ever want to leave, oh thats right, isn't it like 80% who will return. Almost like a 3 star hotel, not the greatest, but the rates are good,FREE. I think tent city is the best idea yet, next to his chain gangs. A true American Hero.

This Sheriff doesn't pander for campaign contributions from the business communities, globalists or Internationalists? So because he doesn't comply with their demands, as they do, they desire him out of office? He is an ongoing danger and worst nightmare to the corporate agenda for illegal discount workers. Now he has a free hand to arrest and not no longer restrained by 287 G federal law, but can use the powers of state laws detain illegal aliens and the criminal elements amongst them. We need more Joe's tent cities and his inmate cuisine of bologna sandwiches, since being subjected to this type of incarceration will deter the most ardent inmate? Nationwide we need more inflexible officers of the law, who will not prostrate to the open border lunatics? Not the soft clean hands of manipulated cops who don't make waves, as they are contemplating looking towards an easy road to retirement. SEEING THAT OUR OWN ELECTED GOVERNMENT, REFUSES TO ENFORCE THE 1986 LAWS (IRCA), THERE OATHS TO PROTECT US FROM OUR ENEMIES FOREIGN & DOMESTIC. THEN COURAGEOUS POLICE OFFICERS MUST CARRY OUT DUTIES OF WHICH AMERICAN'S VOTED FOR?

However the corrupt lawmakers around the nation, have not been able to undermine E-Verify? AS YET? YES! Legal Immigration matters? We should announce to the world that newcomers are welcome, if they come through the front door? We only need those immigrants with specialized skills, such as computer engineers, scientists, doctors and those with highly recommended credentials as developed nations? America has a sovereign right who we choose to settle here? What we don't need is pregnant women slipping across our border, for instant citizenship of their child or destitute illegal aliens whose cannot exist without taxpayer welfare, chain family migration? We don't need in these country illegal recipients who need free health care, education when we already ignore our own people who live in poverty? We need to enforce the 1986 immigration reform law (IRCA), not cripple it for the sake of parasite businesses that live of the slavery of millions of foreign national workers. Seeing that the business world are screaming for more Guest Workers, they should take on the responsibility of paying for their health care and education, instead of dropping sick illegal labor of at the emergency room. to, leave the hospital bill for taxpayers. Instead of expecting the American people to pay for the enormous burden, they should pay separate expenditures for every illegal foreign national and their families.

We need to execute now, a complete war immigration chest containing mandated E-Verify for every worker--NOT REPRESSED--, or 287 G, local police arrest of foreign workers, the Rep.Duncan Hunter original national fence, instead of chopping it down to single line. We need enforcement of our laws, with harsh penalties for violating them. We need politicians we can trust, instead of those elected such as Sen.Reid, Speaker Pelosi, Feinstein and a whole list, who can be graded as Anti-American worker, anti-sovereignty, pro-illegal immigration and compromising the Rule of Law.

Arizona Sheriff Vows to Enforce Immigration Law Whether ‘Feds’ Like it or Not

Friday, October 09, 2009
By Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer

Calling himself “the poster boy” for those who oppose the enforcement of federal immigration laws, Sheriff Joe Arpaio said he will continue to arrest individuals who are in the country illegally, even if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) does not renew the 287(g) agreement that the Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff’s Office has operated under for the past two years.

“We’ve been doing it for two years and have been very successful, but I guess they don’t like to enforce illegal immigration laws,” Arpaio told CNSNews.com. “[It] doesn’t make any difference. I’m still going to continue my programs, regardless of what the feds like or don’t like.”

Under that agreement, authorized in the 287(g) section of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, more than 100 officers and deputies with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office were trained and certified by ICE to enforce federal immigration laws in 2007.

Arpaio claims that ICE is renewing the part of the agreement that allows his personnel to check the immigration status of those booked into the county jail, but will not renew the portion that authorizes officers to make arrests based on immigration status.

“When we come across illegal aliens, we arrest them,” Arpaio said. “That’s the part they don’t like, and that’s the one they took away.”….

….Kris Kobach, former counsel to U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and a professor of law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, told CNSNews.com that there is a federal statute that addresses immigration law and local law enforcement.

“Federal law does expressly authorize state and local police to make immigration arrests of previously deported felons who return to the United States and are in the country unlawfully,” Kobach said.

“That federal statute is found at 8 U.S.C. 1252c. In addition, as the U.S. Department of Justice officially recognized in 2002, state and local police possess the inherent authority to arrest illegal aliens and detain them briefly in order to transfer them to federal custody,” Kobach added.

“Those are two forms of arrest authority that Sheriff Arpaio possesses, apart from Section 287(g) authority,” Kobach said.

Arpaio said that the law usually isn’t enforced, but he would like to change that.

“You know what?” Arpaio said. “I’m going to start enforcing that law.”

America needs to send the Mexican govt a bill for a couple trillion for the expense the tax payers have had to foot as a result of educating housing feeding and giving med care to these illegal peasant mongoloid race reds who are migrants themselves from Asia.

America was founded by and for the chosen blessed Shem European caucaoid white race. Its main founder was the great white Latino Christ Columbus who along with the Anglican protest movement cleansed the pagan heathen wild uncivilized western hemisphere and christianized it for the European white man religionists and its western culture civilization.

The mongoloid reds who survived were indotrinated into white man religion culture and language and the same for the lucky pagan heathen uncivilized savage African negroid black race who were brought as slaves and trained in western caucasoidism before gaining their freedom.

America needs to tally up the trillions these illegal reds have cost the taxpayers and send the bill to Mexico and if they do not pay the bill then a large chunk of Mexican land needs to be swaped as payment and this should include all the resort spots although it could include half the nation that would become a US territory.

From the Brown Shirts of Hitler to the Minutemen Paramilitaries of Today's America and their project of substituting the Government

The Brown Shirts of Hitler : The SA Sturm Abteilung or "Attack Department" were probably within the law ( when Hitler was chancellor of the Reich ) ... That doesn't make them moral.

There were many nice guys inside the SA or inside the Hitler Youth.

Many people flocked to the SA because they were unemployed, they were alone without friends and wanted to be in an organization. Many just wanted a meal.

Many of them should have been nice guys to start..... Good sons and grandson, good brothers....

But that does not earn my appreciation for those paramilitaries of Hitler. They become a Force of Evil, Sadism, Racism, Cruelty, Brutality, Murder, etc ...

The Minutemen :

Many people may be for many simple reasons inside the Minutemen, they are lonely, or they just believe the Propaganda that they are Heroes of the American Revolution, Great Paul Reveres....

Many Minutemen are just extremely simple minds or fools believing that they are the top echelon of evolution, and forgetting that they are losers and failed lives, cans of inferiority complexes and dysfunctional family remains.

Many just want an adventure ....

But the Truth is that the organization operates inside a framework of Racism, Sadism, Cruelty and Brutality.

And you can see that in their papers, propaganda, announcements, advertising, actions, etc...

Wolves in Sheep skins do not persuade the people that are thinking and reflecting on this madness of this cult for Weapons and Racism.

You see the Minutemen already killed a nine year old girl Brisenia Flores and her Father Raul during an invasion of their home, they are not statistics, they were human beings with a beautiful family of love, Brisenia was loved by all her classmates in Elementary School and strongly loved her parents. A few other murders have been already strongly proved to the Minutemen Authors and there are many other murders in which the Minutemen are good suspects.

Let the Government do the work that corresponds.... Not fools and the mentally deranged like Shawna Forde, Gunny Bush and any other Mentally Deranged Thug with Criminal Tendencies.

Obama Administration Racially Profiles Joe Arpaio

- PART 1

Arpaio is white, and whites in law enforcement are, you know, racist.

http://oneoldvet.com/?p=7142#more-7142
By Jim Kouri

The Obama administration has stripped Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio — also known as “America’s Sheriff” by many admirers who hail him as a hero – of his federal authority to arrest suspected illegal immigrants based solely on their immigration status. The federal authorities under President Barack Obama wish to do away with local cops enforcing our nation’s immigration laws.

Arpaio’s deputies attended the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Center in order to be trained for immigration enforcement as part of their regular law enforcement and jail management duties. In addition to the DHS attempting to curtail Sheriff Arpaio’s immigration enforcement activities — he states he will not stop arresting illegal aliens — Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, is threatening to investigate Sheriff Arpaio and his department.

Sadly, at the same time the Department of Homeland Security estimates that the total unauthorized immigrant population residing in the United States is 10 million. Their total includes those who entered the United States illegally and those who entered legally but overstayed their authorized period of stay. Critics dispute the federal statistics, saying that the number of illegal aliens is closer to 20 million.


Another recent study by the GAO estimates that there are about 15 million illegal aliens living in the United States. The study estimates that nearly 700,000 aliens enter the United States illegally or overstay their authorized period of stay each year.

Some illegal aliens in the United States have been arrested and incarcerated in federal and state prisons as well as local jails, adding to already dangerously overcrowded prisons and jails, the Government Accountability Office reported to the US Congress’ Homeland Security Subcommittee on criminal aliens that were incarcerated in federal and state prisons and local jails.

Their report contained information on the number of criminal aliens incarcerated, their country of citizenship or country of birth, and the cost to incarcerate them. Congress also requested that the GAO provide information on the criminal history of aliens incarcerated in federal and state prisons or local jails who had entered the country illegally.

For a population of aliens that entered the country illegally and were incarcerated in federal or state prisons or local jails, the GAO report addressed the following questions: How many times have they been arrested? How many and what type of criminal offenses have they been arrested for? What states were they arrested in?

In the GAO study of a population sample of 55,322 illegal aliens, analysts found that they were arrested a total of 459,614 times, averaging about 8 arrests per illegal alien.

Nearly all of the illegal aliens in the study sample had more than 1 arrest. Thirty-eight percent (about 21,000) had between 2 and 5 arrests, 32 percent (about 18,000) had between 6 and 10 arrests, and 26 percent (about 15,000) had 11 or more arrests. They were arrested for a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses, averaging about 13 offenses per illegal alien.

One arrest incident may include multiple offenses, a fact that explains why there are nearly one-and-a-half times more offenses than arrests.

Obama Administration Racially Profiles Joe Arpaio

- PART 2

Almost all of these illegal aliens were arrested for more than 1 offense. Slightly more than half of the 55,322 illegal aliens had between 2 and 10 offenses. About 45 percent of all offenses were drug or immigration offenses. About 15 percent were property-related offenses such as burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and property damage. About 12 percent were for violent offenses such as murder, robbery, assault, and sex-related crimes. The balance was for such other offenses as traffic violations, including driving under the influence; fraud — including forgery and counterfeiting; weapons violations; and obstruction of justice.

Eighty percent of all arrests occurred in three states — California, Texas, and Arizona. Specifically, about 58 percent of all arrests occurred in California, 14 percent in Texas, and 8 percent in Arizona. In addition, the FBI estimates that there are upwards of 50,000 illegal aliens who are members of crime gangs such as MS-13, the Mexican Mafia and the Latin Kings.

“If the US Attorney General and his boss President Obama are concerned with investigating criminal activity, perhaps they should focus on criminal aliens and gangs rather than persecuting an effective law enforcement commander such as Joe Arpaio,” said former NYPD detective and Marine Sid Frances.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio vows a show-down on Friday with corrupt FEDS over illegal aliens

October 14, 2009

Rebecca Larsen THE WASHINGTON TIMES

PHOENIX | The man who likes to call himself "America’s toughest sheriff," Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., is planning a Friday showdown with the feds.
The sheriff has announced he will defy the U.S. Department of Homeland Security by doing a street sweep for illegal immigrants one day after the expiration of the agreement that has permitted him to conduct such operations for the past three years. The sheriff has said he expects the deal not to be extended, though federal officials have remained publicly noncommittal.
Deputies, and Sheriff Arpaio, will stake out an intersection somewhere in the Phoenix metro area to stop cars for traffic violations - everything from speeding to broken taillights to driving while intoxicated. Both drivers and passengers will be held if deputies determine that they are illegal immigrants - regardless of how minor was the initial infraction.
Sheriff Arpaio is charging ahead because he claims he has jurisdiction under a 1996 federal law allowing police to detain someone briefly if that person could be in the country illegally.
"We will call Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] to see if they will take them from us," Sheriff Arpaio told The Washington Times. "And if they tell me to let them go, I guess I’ll have to transport them myself to the border [about 175 miles] and turn them over to the Border Patrol."
