Of course voters support Joe Arpaio because he enforces the laws,

America needs more sheriffs like Joe that will do their job.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio should establish the 782(g) program to provide ICE with the training and subsequent authorization to identify, process, and when appropriate, detain immigration offenders they encounter during their regular, daily law-enforcement activity. He clearly know more about how to enforce immigration law the ICE does.

The government is the enemy of the people. Joe represents the people, they don't like that. He doesn't fit the mold of the usual servant of the 'bankers'. Great article about them here: http://tinyurl.com/yfj7jbs

The local sheriff has MORE power than the president.

http://www.beyondtheordinary.net/sheriffmack....

Sheriff Mack's book covers decades of research to prove once and for all that the sheriffs in this country are indeed the ultimate law authority in their respective jurisdictions. The sheriff absolutely has the power and responsibility to defend his citizens against all enemies, including those from our own Federal Government.

The labeling of a group of people as "Illegal" is EXACTLY what the Nazi's were doing to the Jews just before WW2.... There was laws on the books that made being a Jew in German illegal.... They blamed the illegal Jews for the horrible economy, for taking their jobs, and for perpetrating crime in Germany.

They were used as a scapegoat and labeled as "Illegal" in Hitler's Germany.... This propaganda was then promoted in the media, and the suffering German people believed it to be true. This promoted hate, resentment, and even attacks on the Jews population....

Human beings are not "illegal" and calling them that is wrong. Sure, they may break a law, but that means that they DID something Illegal, not that they ARE Illegal.... If you speed over the speed limit, are you now an "Illegal" or did you just simply break a law... How many other people who are US Citizens break the law too? And don't even get me started on US businesses that routinely break the law...

It's not right to round people up. They are humans have have a right to decency. What Joe Arpaio is doing is EXACTLY what Hitler did.... Rounded up the Jews, put them behind bars, deported them, and placed others in Ghettos.

Wake up America!!!

Propaganda on Television and Radio is brainwashing you to support pure evil!!!!

Stop blaming others for your problems and dig yourself out of this recession with your own two hands!!!

Blaming others will never solve the problem.

Folks this Maricopa County Immigration War is an old style Italian Vendetta skirmish.

The Italian Lefty-from Naples , Janet Naplitano, is taking on the Conservative Sicilian Joe Arpaio.

This war is 7-8 years old dating back to local Az. politics when Janet was St. AG and later governor.

In a news conference last week, Arpaio cited a document containing a provision of Title 8 of the federal code and language that gives him the power to carry out his warrantless “sweeps“

The document outlines conduct that can be used as probable cause to investigate a person’s immigration status, such as “evasive, nervous, or erratic behavior; dress or speech indicating foreign citizenship; and presence in an area known to contain a concentration of illegal aliens.”

The document is clear about what’s allowed, and Arpaio and his deputies follow it to the letter.

But here’s the problem: THE LAW DOESN’T ACTUALLY EXIST.

The document Arpaio so readily waved around originated from a legal interpretation the HATE GROUP Federation for American Immigration Reform published on its Web site in 1999. It’s been reposted by numerous extremists groups, border-control and anti-immigrant groups, BUT EXISTS NOWHERE IN ACTUAL FEDERAL CODE.

FAIR (By John Tanton for Race Betterment) noted that it was only an analysis and offered a disclaimer that it was not to be used as a substitute for actual legal advice.

The overview published by Anti-immigrant hate group FAIR can be found here:

www.fairus.org/site/PageServer...

Arpaio who insisted at first that the document was taken directly from U.S. Code is now taking a step back. He acknowledged that the document might not be part of federal law. He said,“I thought it was a law. I don’t know what you call it.”

“I still think there’s a federal law out there that gives me the authority to do this,” he said.

I never have agreed with immigration rallies protesting with a foreign flag especially the flag of Mexico.

I think they do it more to annoy those who don't like it.

Only in America can a person get away with that.

The full term is illegal alien or if you are sensitive and politically correct, illegal immigrant.
.
The full term describes who they are, and what they have done.
.
They broke the law and your argument falls flat.

If they did do it specifically to annoy, it backfired, it didnt annoy, it outraged and fueled the ranks of those opposed to amnesty.

No comparison. The Jews were CITIZENS of Germany, and the other countries overrun by the Nazis.(Don't forget, the Nazis also killed Catholics, Gypsies and disabled people.) Illegal Aliens are FOREIGN NATIONALS who have broken our immigration laws. EVERY country in the world has immigration laws. Furthermore, the Illegal Aliens are NOT being killed. It was their choice to break into a FOREIGN country. They knew their options. Where does personal responsibility come in, here?
No one is blaming Illegal Aliens for the country's problems. The majority of the blame should go to our government and employers.

Typical pro-illegal obfuscation and lies. The difference, dolt, is that Jews in Germany weren't illegals. Foreign nationals in the USA without permission ARE illegals. Our sovereign laws say so and international law says so. Duh!

Our laws specifically state that the punishment for being a foreign national on USA soil without permission is DEPORTATION. With the millions of illegal aliens invading our country, all law enforcement can do IS round them up and deport them, as our laws demand. Duh!

Wake up to the laws of the USA, dimwit. Those laws are in place for reasons, ones you evidently come in conflict with. Tough. 8 million illegals hold jobs here against our laws. The rest of the 20-30 million illegals are sucking up services they aren't entitled to. They need be deported so our own people can work those jobs and so our state and local treasuries can recover from the harm illegals are doing to them. If their own countries are ghettos, that's their problem. Maybe they can stay home and change their countries to be better places.

Get a clue and stuff the Nazi crap. Illegals are more like the Nazis anyway. Nazis invaded other countries to take them over. Ask any Mexican national what they want to do to the USA -- they want to destroy us, and they particularly hate white people. Duh.

I wish more local municipalities would step up and do an outstanding job like Joe! Enforce the laws which are already written!
