    Sheriff Joe is pissing of Liberals again

    Phoenix mayor asks FBI to check sheriff

    Sun Apr 13, 2:46 PM ET

    PHOENIX - The mayor wants the FBI to investigate whether the local county sheriff has violated any civil rights laws with his recent high-profile crackdowns on illegal immigrants.
    The "saturation patrols" have drawn protests from civil rights and immigrant-rights advocates, but they have drawn support from backers of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and from people who believe the government hasn't done enough against illegal immigration.
    In an April 4 letter to U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Mayor Phil Gordon asked the agency and the Justice Department's civil rights division to examine what he called discriminatory harassment and improper stops, searches, and arrests by sheriff's deputies in Maricopa County, which encompasses the metropolitan area.
    "Over the past few weeks, Sheriff Arpaio's actions have infringed on the civil rights of our residents," Gordon wrote. "They have put our residents' well-being, and the well-being of law enforcement officers, at risk."
    Justice Department officials said they would review Gordon's letter but declined to comment further.
    Arpaio said it's ironic that Gordon wrote the letter the same day U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials observed his deputies arresting residents and illegal immigrants in the town of Guadalupe and approved of the sheriff's work.
    "I think the mayor is disconnected from the people he represents and he doesn't get the point," Arpaio said Saturday. "Now he's going to Washington to confuse the issue and try to get the public against me."
    The mayor "is degrading my office and my deputies by insinuating that they're violating all these civil laws. We don't profile," the sheriff said.
    In the past month, sheriff's deputies and trained volunteers have gone into neighborhoods with large Hispanic populations, stopping people for routine traffic violations and asking some of them about their immigration status. Dozens of illegal immigrants have been detained.
    ICE officials say Arpaio is not violating the formal agreement he has with their office that allows sheriff's deputies to enforce immigration laws.
    Last week, the Arizona Ecumenical Council and American Jewish Committee issued a joint letter saying the patrols "evoked a 'police state' atmosphere" and led to "detainment on the basis of a racial profile and dehumanization of innocent people."
    They were joined Friday by the Arizona chapter of the Anti-Defamation League, which echoed calls for a Justice Department investigation.

    Who cares what those idiots think. If they are illegal, they need to go. If I can sit here waiting for the past two years for my wife to be able to return back here from her country, those assholes can do it too. I am tired of seeing all those illegals here, taking jobs, and protesting for their "rights" that they actually are not entitled to. If My mother and wife can apply for their visas like they are supposed to, then so can those assholes. I did not fight and bleed for my country so they can waltz in here and take advantage of it.

    Kudos to ex401mp and his family for doing it right. I would hasten to believe that Sheriff Arpaio probably pisses off the liberals and the illegals every day. More power to him. Go get 'em Joe!

    ex401mp I agree with you completely! Our grandparents and great-grandparents had to do it the legal way and now illegals think it is "owed" to them that they stay here.

    As for Sheriff Joe, I think this statement said it all "ICE officials say Arpaio is not violating the formal agreement he has with their office that allows sheriff's deputies to enforce immigration laws." If a federal agency is backing him and his officers what more needs to be said. He is doing things according to the laws set down.

    My dad, I miss him every day.

    I personally like Sheriff Joe. I would agree that finally someone has the guts to tackle the bad with a little old fashion sense.

    They showed him talking to a mayor a town on TV last night. He told her that if she didn't like what he and his deputies were doing, she got 90 days to get her own police dept be cause he won't patrol her town any more. Cool guy!

    I totally agree with it. the only thing that we do need to do. is to build a jail for all of them because right now... we are running low on room and now that some judge passed some law that we can't boat the inmates (Plastic bed with a mat) because it is cruel and unusual punishment is crap. But yeah all for it to keep going.... just need more room to stick them all.

    Sheriff Joe for President??
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.
