Joe Arpaio Uses Death of Illegal Immigrant to Push for Tent Cities Along U.S./Mexico Border

Joe Arpaio's solution to the immigration problem: throw 'em all in tents.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has a message for the federal government: build tent cities along the U.S./Mexico border to house captured illegal immigrants rather than deport them.

Joe's suggestion comes after sheriff's deputies pulled the bodies of three illegal immigrants from an irrigation canal in the west Valley last month. One of those immigrants, the Sheriff's Office says, was a man who previously had been caught by authorities and deported back to Mexico.

According to Arpaio, a border fence simply won't do the trick.

"This tragedy underscores the extent to which many of these illegal aliens go to evade capture," America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" says in an e-mail. "If they are willing to elude capture by jumping into freezing, fast-moving water, then certainly a fence isn't likely to stop them from entering our country."

Neither will tents, Joe. Yet, that's the solution to the immigration problem the sheriff is using the death of the immigrants to pimp.

"The United States federal government should consider building tent cities across the border, lock up those who enter illegally rather than simply deport them and be more aggressive in finding and arresting illegals who have managed to make it undetected into the interior of the United States," Arpaio continues.

The bodies were found on December 22, after a sheriff's deputy made a routine traffic stop on U.S. 80. When the car came to a stop, the deputy says, he watched five people jump out and start running from the vehicle.

The five suspected illegal immigrants jumped into the nearby canal in an attempt to evade the deputy. At the time, the MCSO says, the canal's water flow was heavy.

Three of the suspects were pulled from the canal, while deputies were unable to locate the other two.

A week earlier, deputies rescued a minor from the same canal in the same general area.

For the first time EVER the old cretin is right.No, Joey, fences will not stop the illegal entrants, nor will your stupid tents. You sound as though you may be coming close to understanding a thing or two about the human experience.It only took 78 years to get this far along in figuring stuff out, so keep trying.P.S. Hey Joe, say hello to your bitch, Andrew-Asshole Thomas when ya see him. I hear he's not doing so hot in the legal business these days.A damned shame. Maybe disbarment will give him some time for introspection... Ha, Ha, Ha : )

Please visit the NumbersUSA and the ALIPAC websites and help fight illegal immigration.

In 2010, vote against every politician that supports amnesty for illegal aliens.

Dear Sir Arpaio,the Feds have built numerous fancy compounds to handle this problem.Let's use THAT first,until they generate the funds to implement YOUR plan,which is GREAT!!!!!

Yes, Joe---another way to promote yourself. If we build the tents they will come --is that your dream?

I hope the average citizen realizes what the New Times didn't want to put into words. If SB 1070 was not pursued so publicly to be prejudicial to Mexicans maybe they would not have jumped into the canal.

A good influence this new law is....people would rather jump into a canal and risk injury and or death rather than end up in the Maricopa County Jail. Yes Sheriff Arpaio what a great story that is.

Something needs to be done before there are more needless deaths because of the atmosphere of fear and hatred that is throughout this county. Even the new law SB 1070 doesn't sentence you to death!

This sounds like a last gasp from Joe for popularity. If the Fed actually did it, he could take credit for the New National Immigration Policy. If they don't he can say "I don't know why they won't talk to me. I was the head of the DEA in Mexico for years and I am the smartest buffoon on the border that there is."

When you're an egomaniac, your ideas are always worthy of implementing, even if it's a square peg being pounded into a round hole.

Here's my idea: We round up all 11 million illegals and put THEM to work building a giant brick border wall with razor wire on the top and use them for border security.

There would be no need for the National Guard or Border Patrol and every illegal alien captured can be used to enhance our border security.

Joe's idea is to cost the federal government as much money as he's cost Maricopa County. If that's the case, we oughta round him, Sheriff Paul, Hendy, Fox, Black and Puroll and put them to work building the Great Wall of Arizona.

oh yes...because building more prisons and housing immigrants will not cost anything, right?

any guesses on proposals to run those prisons?

won't work anyways, Russ say's they're not subject to US jurisdiction so how can you lock them up?

What a stellar idea! We could "Concentrate" them all in one or more camps. I suggest a sign be placed over the entrance, such as "Work Will Make You Free."

Perfect, then send Bozo Joe down to the boder to watch over the tents.

Perfcet job for the Bozo since he sure can't do his job as Maricopa County Sheriff.

Go peddle your bleeding-heart bullshit somewhere else. The fact is, these people are here ILLEGALLY. If they hadn't come here ILLEGALLY, they wouldn't be faced with decisions that could ultimately end up meaning their death.

As long as we can stop them from stealing the money, it would be a great idea.

Actually, start executing them at the border then maybe they will stop trying to cross. Not to mention the DUI and violent crime rates will drop by 50%.

They could even put J.T. Ready and friends in charge.

What does every other country in the world do with criminals who enter their country illegally? We could just shoot them like a lot of the other countries, how would that be?

Barbara you idiot, In the usa, people should be civil. if thats the way you feel, you can start with yourself. With a name like "Switchebergh", im willing to bet your family came from outside the USA. Beggers should noty be chosers, and your ignorance shows. I wish you and your family the worst of luck and may sadness and ridicue follow you and yours for the remaining of years alive. B> I> H >B

Don't compare us to other countries. That's a typical Right wing trick by you Rethuglikans. This is the United States and we adhere to a higher standard.

Care to tell us which countries "shoot" people who enter illegally? Even Iran detains them. Don't you watch the news?

You're calling her an idiot, yet you fail to see that she's the only one on here who has even made a point. The rest of you are more into putting down Arpaio. She's right, though. There isn't ONE country on the face of the planet who freely allows non-citizens to cross their borders at any time. Most would consider what is happening here in America as an act of war.

Jeez you people can't read (or retype a name that's right in front of you). My family did indeed come here LEGALLY from other countries but that's besides the point. I am not a right winger and I did not say we should shoot people. The point is we need to control our borders like every other country in the world does. Name one country you can just wander into and take up residence? And live off their government. Not even Mexico, ironically.

Joe
Joe

Oh, I get it, you mean "republicans". OHHHH MY! Aren't YOU the clever one! If it wasn't for the pussy cry-baby liberals, we wouldn't be in the situation in the first place. The fact is, these people are breaking the laws of this nation. If you're not going to even attempt to be part of the solution, then you're part of the problem. Put up or shut up, dumbass.
