Sheriff Joe Arpaio Sticks To His Guns
The Obama Justice Department (what a laugh) is investigating a high-profile sheriff for, well, enforcing the law.
Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff Joe Arpaio is accused of discrimination based on race and national origin because of his efforts as part of a federal program that allows local police departments to enforce federal immigration law.
Arpaio routinely rounds up illegal aliens in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix. He is famous for treating prisoners like actual criminals, and he separates illegal aliens from other inmates in Tent City, the part of the county jail where inmates dwell in tents.
The sheriff said that he would cooperate with the Justice Department, saying, "If they want to come down, let them come. We'll open our books. We have nothing to hide." But he also said,
"I will not back down. What I am doing is upholding the laws
of the state of Arizona, and I will not be persuaded to turn
my back on my oath of office as sheriff of this county."
Way to go Joe!!!
If we had more sheriffs in this country with integrity and backbone, like Sheriffs Joe Arpaio and Richard Mack, this is all that would be needed to put an immediate stop to our runaway federal government that is brazenly usurping states rights and our personal rights too.
I know from reports that I have recieved that there are more Sheriffs across the country who are following in there footsteps.....pray that yours is one of them. Remember, the Sheriff has more authority in his county than the President or any federal agent....it is up to him to protect the people of his county....not to suck up to the feds....the people elected him....he works for the people. If the Sheriff, or any other elected official, takes the oath and swears to it with his hand on the bible, then does not uphold it, that is like treason and he should get the hell out of office!
