    DHS Napolitano orders Sheriff Arpaio to stop looking for illegal aliens

    DHS has revoked Sheriff Joe Arpaio's authority to inter illegal aliens, but that isn't stopping him. He will now be busing illegals right to the border.

    Sheriff Arpaio has vowed to maintain his “crime suppression operations,” conducting street patrols looking for suspected illegal aliens. He says that he can still operate within the law, under Arizona human smuggling laws.
    Works for me. Known as America's toughest sheriff, Arpaio has apprehended more than 30,000 illegal aliens so far. Rather than chastise him, I believe that DHS should be pinning a medal on him instead. They are breaking the law. The sheriff is merely enforcing the law. What's the big deal?

    Article is here.

    PBO's people are going to strip the authority from a law enforcement officer for enforcing the law. That's juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust wonderful.

    I really gotta hand it to Krewe Obama, they're trying to piss away their one big chance, in record time. Has any other prez dicked up his administration this quickly?

    How exactly does one conduct a "street patrol" looking for illegal immigrants?
    Given Arpaio's other publicity seeking and highly unethical behavior, I am not exactly trusting of his actions. However, I don't like the Homeland Security getting involved either. Arpaio is a local problem that should be dealt with using local power.

    Let's see, we know white folks are probably here legally, so no need to stop them. So that leaves all the brown folks. Since we can't really be sure which of them is legal and which ain't, we'll just have to assume that none of 'em is legal and detain them until they can prove they're here legally. That ought to fix it!

    Works for me.
    Under what authority does a local sheriff have the right to physically remove people from the country?

    I can't. This is important.

    Really? So immigration law is now the purview of local sheriffs? When did that happen, I must have missed it.

    I heard him say he has been catching dozens of Chinese coming thru Mexico.
    They are not giving understandable reasons, just saying they are going to New
    York? Why doesn't the DHS want us to keep our boarders safe ?

    Basically, Joe Arpaio is a meglomaniac.

    He's violating all sorts of people's 4th amendment rights... and unfortunately the sun city voters here agree with him.


    Him and Napalitano butted heads for YEARS before she got promoted to DHS.

    I hate both of them.
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
