Sheriff Joe Arpaio says Thursday's raid on the Royal Paper Converting Co. plant is the second in just more than a year at the facility.

Deputies sought 102 people in the raid. Of the only 44 who were arrested, 35 were jailed on suspicion of felony identity theft and nine were turned over to federal immigration agents.

Go Joe and don't slow down. I think its a disgrace that the local Sheriff has the ability to track down and arrest these illegals but the big bad Fed gov can't even do their own job.

When these guys are arrested, and asked to show their I.D., which one do they show? How do we know they're who they SAY they are? If they offer to produce a 'character witness', can they use THEMSELVES, under a different name?

Thatís an excellent question, given their propensity for numerous aliases and document fraud. Iím sure some of them have in fact been their own character witness. I wouldnít be surprised if they have also been their own children and parents. Why not, since obviously no one is actually verifying info.

Its not that the fed can't, it is that they wont.

The specific agencies tasked with fighting illegal immigration (BP, INS, ICE) are doing all they can - its the directives from higher up thats hindering them.

Yes, Janet Napolitano has ordered a cut back on immigration raids.

That is great. At least he is doing something. I know he is controversial, but he is doing what he needs to do.
