The East Valley Tribune (Metro Phoenix/East Valley newspaper) is currently running a 5 part investigation examining the illegal immigration enforcement efforts in Arizona by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) and it's hidden cost to the public.

This is all pretty predictable. Any effort to minimize illegal immigration is ALWAYS silly, and any money spent on this effort is ALWAYS money that should be spent elsewhere..just about ANYWHERE, but on such a silly, imaginary problem as illegal immigration. The 'people' don't want their tax dollars spent on policemen chasing hard-working immigrants.

Surely, blacknight, we'd hardly expect to hear anything else...would we? I think it's pretty obvious to ALL of us that there really IS no illegal problem at all, that fences don't work, that people just want to work, and that other people are just 'grumpy', racist, or delusional, and that Sherriff Arpaio is really just a big bully 'grandstanding' for the media.

Just desperation on the part of the pro illegals-------I live here in Maricopa County of which Mesa is a part of. Hell, I work about 1,000' from the Mesa border.
