Those Razas can file all the complaints they want. They have an agenda and it is all about their ethnic group and no one else.
I never made the claim that most conservatives are opposed to legal immigration! You’re putting words in my mouth. What I said was that most Sheriff Joe supporters are anti-immigration.

What it boils down to here is: he had the balls and the affrontry to go against Washington's wishes of "shut the h*** up and let the staus quo remain so we get votes from the Latino quadrant."

The oath of office means nothing to "O" and Holder but when a Sheriff rubs their noses with it they go all legal on him, just as they have with Brewer.

He's not violating the trust of the constituents he's supposed to protect; just those of illegals who are NOT his constituents. Going after BO's pedigree is something the congress should have done but fostering no less than eight tries at re-defining the constitutional description of "citizen of birth" to lower the bar in the years that BO came into prominence running up to the election was more their style. Shame on them!

You are getting what you definitely deserve if you stifle guys like Arpaio.

I believe he should just do what Holder does and ignore any supoena's that come his way; goose-gander!
this ^^^^^^^

You have no proof of that either. Did you miss the part where I put in parenthesis in that post (including those who like Arpaio)? It appears it is you who put words in my mouth! Why wouldn't they represent the rest of mainstream conservatives who only oppose illegal immigration? Arpaio isn't seeking out legal immigrants.

He's not even an attorney.

How could that be? Bush was term limited.

They can't. It's not a criminal offense.

You actually have that completely backwards. The fake eligibility investigation was retribution for the federal charges he knew were coming.

That's why he's being sued.

Can you show us accredited documented instances of him clearly violating a persons civil rights and "other abuses"

What more proof do you need? How is this defensible?>>> Complaint <<<Why are people defending these actions? If that’s not proof enough for you nothing never will be.

The only things it really boils down to is this… Everything else is moot…

Complaint
That link is to the complaint filed by the Dept of Justice, a very baised arm of the federal gov't presently tainted by scandal ; so your point would be?

You're also conveniently leaving out the little bit about a portion of his deputees being hispanic of Mexican immigration aren't you?

You're also leaving out the little bit about his constituents who've re-elected him 5 times being comprised significantly of hispanic Mexican "legal" immigration background aren't you? They also want the laws upheld.

I'll ask again: Why is that? GET IT?
