Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies arrested eight illegal immigrants on Saturday during a protest outside a Phoenix furniture store embroiled in a heated immigration debate.

Immigration activists have gathered on Saturdays for the past six weeks outside Pruitt’s furniture store to challenge Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s enforcement of immigration laws. Saturday was the first time deputies made arrests during the rallies. The day laborers were arrested on suspicion of violating immigration laws.

This is so cool. All I have to say is IT'S ABOUT TIME! Joe's certainly a hero, very few law enforcement agencies would have the courage to arrest illegals at an illegal alien rally.

Demonstrators began protesting at the store near Thomas Road and 34th Street in late October, when the store hired sheriff’s deputies to keep day laborers away from the property.

The store asked the sheriff’s office to help because they felt the presence of day laborers was hurting their business.

More than 100 protesters have shown up for the rallies, including officials from the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona.

The union’s legal director, Daniel Pochoda, was arrested by deputies Nov. 5 after he was asked to attend a rally to observe the interaction between protesters and deputies.
So they are protesting that their 'right' to basically put this furniture store out of business is being impinged upon? Somehow I doubt this is going to generate a great deal of sympathy from the general public. And of course the ACLU has already reared it's ugly head, MALDEF and La Raza can't be far behind.

Pruitts, the furniture store in question, has been getting lots of support from the community -

This entire fiasco is a TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE!

Illegals have been destroying the area around the entrance to this furniture store as well as intimidating the customers for months.

According to the "honest" media reports, it became so bad the owner was compelled to hire off duty sheriff deputies at his own expense to clear the area of the dirtbags and protect his customers.

How ridiculous . . . now the Illegal Loving Idiots feel they have the right to PROTEST!
