The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday voted to postpone the acceptance of $1.6 million from the state to help pay for illegal immigration enforcement by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The Republican-majority board until now has consistently supported Arpaio and generally agreed philosophically with his viewpoint on illegal immigration.
Observers said the decision could signal that the board is concerned by federal inquires into Arpaio's practices and is another example of the toxic political environment between county government and the sheriff.
County board postpones Arpaio's immigration funds

The hammer is dropping alright.

BTW: blacknight04; Spanish speaking Mestizos AKA most illegal alien 'Hispanics' are disappearing here in Arizina as we speak.

As someone who has worked with corrections in the past, I can tell you that it is a matter of time before he gets fired for maltreatment and abuse. He is violating human rights and I believe that this group of county board of supervisors are rethinking their support.

Cutting their food supply, beatings, etc. This is what is really going to bring him down.

Please back up your statements that Sheriff Joe is violating human rights by cutting off illegal immigrants' food supply and beating them. I have never heard of this and believe you're making this up. PROVIDE DATA TO BACK THIS UP PLEASE???

Never heard about cutting off food. Joe just gives them junk.

But the beatings are documented (against all inmates, not just illegals) and he has lost several lawsuits because of this. Try using google to research Joe Arpaio lawsuits.

I'm on my lunch break now but will return information backing up the claim.

There was no reason why the lawsuits should have been lost. Even if the beatings were equal treatment they are still violations of human rights. That tells you how corrupt the system is.

If nothing else that just goes to show he has a fairly equal hand with all inmates. I would really be amazed if hev had no lawsuits. It just isn't the Hilton any more, huh ? It's not fun or easy, but, what did you expect? Cheese burgers and beer ? Hell, they should make him Governor of AZ.

People shouldn't die at the hands of guards...People shouldn't have medication withheld...and so one

Should you die in jail because you failed to pay some parking tickets?

You don't want third world (illegals) people living in the US yet you want our police to act like third world dictators?

And by the way, no one ever said anything about Beer and Burgers...

Classic line for the Arpaio groupies!
You don't want 'third world' people, but you want third world law enforcement?
