    First, My response to you had absolutely ZERO to do with any form of immigration, legal or illegal. So, how you were able to delude yourself into thinking you were being clever by pulling that inference out of your ass is truly mind boggling.

    Second, Your feeble attempt at sidestepping my actual question while desiring to appear to answer the question was just as lame. If anything, your mental gymnastics did more to prove my point. Obviously, the fact that people you don't like get re-elected continually doesn't sit well with your cherry-picked example.

    Dude, seriously, here's some friendly advice... You've clearly demonstrated you have no credibility in this thread or regarding this topic. Sometimes it's better to not respond at all.
    Ok bud. No, being elected is not a major factor on ability to do a job. Yet, would someone continue to be elected if the majority of people they serve did not approve of their performance? Satisfied?

    So far the majority of people in Maricopa country approve of MCSO actions.

    So far, Maricopa County voters have favored Sheriff Joke less in each election cycle. He barely pulled 55% in '08.

    And I wouldn't say the majority of Maricopa residents approve of every action the office takes, let alone knowing half of what has been going on. The Republic has hardly been a critic of Joke.

    Well done, you managed to distract yourself in your first response to me while ignoring the post directed to you.....and why this aversion to numbers in your last 2....er...3 posts? If you don't care about numbers....why ask?

    Awe, you missed the point of the sarcasm. Oh well. Nothing of value to see in this thread, so time to move on.

    Merely pointing out a bit of political hackery.

    Perhaps the Feds should listen to the People of Texas...and not their liberal political agenda.
    You think the feds should let the residents of Texas elect a Sheriff in Arizona? Okay.

    I think they should enforce the law, which is what they're doing.

    Yes: Public relations, grandstanding, and fearmongering. It's a gift.

    He's already been found guilty of various human rights abuses in various contexts (and settled many others to the tune of tens of millions of dollars). I'm confident he'll be found guilty again.

    That doesn't make any sense. What does make sense is what the article in the OP says about why this is going to trial:

    "Following the issuance of the letter of findings, the department attempted to reach a resolution with MCSO and Sheriff Arpaio and provided them with a comprehensive draft settlement agreement. The proposed agreement contained a number of key reforms that had been successfully implemented elsewhere. However, negotiations were unsuccessful, primarily because MCSO and Sheriff Arpaio refused to agree to any independent oversight by a monitor."
