Quite true. And many are actually felons as well - particularily when they have victimized people through identity theft.

Not true, their attention and funds were spent on the sweeps. It was AFTER the publicity that they went after the wanted felons.

Not true. And, I know first hand.

I'm a reserve MCSO deputy - who helped serve the warrants. Who personally attended briefings, with the Sheriff - who emphazied the need to get these "bad guys" off the streets and out of the communties.

AND, they was BEFORE, LONG BEFORE - sweeps, publicity - what have you.

It is amazing, Sheriff Joe, gets it done, with no stimulus money and others beg to get stimulus to make it happen.

What's he doing to save the tax payer, that the others are not?

Arpaio may have targeted the employers of illegals, but according to this "New Times" article, no employer has ever been charged under the "employer-sanctions law":

Phoenix News - Arpaio’s Busts of Illegals at Popular Valley Water Parks Are All Wet - page 1


"Andrew Thomas never did make a case against parent company Golfland Entertainment. Despite the hullabaloo and expectations after the new law went into effect, his office still has not filed any sanctions in cases against employers, nor has any of Arizona's 14 other county attorneys.

One likely reason, according to University of Arizona researcher Judy Gans, is the depressed economic climate."

Arpaio is a career sadist and sociopath who ought to be on the other side of the bars, preferably in a nice rubber room.
