Joe Arpaio's Latest Illegal Immigrant Roundup/"Employer Sanctions Operation" Nets 10 Arrests

America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff," Joe Arpaio.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio launched his 55th illegal-immigrant roundup under the guise of an "employer sanctions operation" this morning. It netted 10 arrests -- and, per usual, none of those arrested were employers, just employees, MCSO spokesman Jeff Sprong tells New Times.

According to the Sheriff's Office, after several weeks of investigation, deputies raided the Prisma Graphic Corporation at 2937 East Broadway Road in Phoenix in search of 17 suspected illegal immigrants.

Only 10 of the suspected illegal immigrants were taken into custody this morning.

The MCSO says it received a tip that an employee was fraudulently using the Social Security number of a 14-year-old girl to gain employment at the Phoenix printing company.

Illegal immigration aside, the investigation into the company also revealed that employees were using the company's printing equipment to print Wells Fargo credit-card information, government hunting tags, and fraudulent health-insurance documents.

The MCSO says it also "found indications" that undocumented employees were using the printers to make campaign signs for "an unnamed candidate."

(CORRECTION -- compliments of the MCSO: The sheriff's office later admitted that deputies had only heard about the fraudulent documents and campaign signs. They never actually found any at Prisma Graphic). 

"Last month, President Obama mentioned me to a small group of journalists insinuating that he was not happy with my illegal-immigration crackdowns and refused to answer why his administration is still investigating me," the sheriff claimed. "This office will continue to enforce all aspects of federal and state immigration laws throughout the Valley, including Phoenix."

The Sheriff's Office declined to say whether it would consider changing the name of these "employer sanctions operations" -- ya know, considering not a single employer has ever been arrested during any of Arpaio's raids.

Apparently James King is nothing more than a stenographer taking dictation from LaRaza and Progressives.  Does this guy think any one takes him seriously?

Another Liberal hate column by a bunch of mindless cockroaches.  For all you liberals who want more government, its because you are too stupid to make decisions yourself.  Thats because the liberal school unions/teachers want you to be idiots.  It has worked very well, by the way, you can move out of mommy and daddys basement and join Acorn on the homeless 99% rallies.....   Rapist, thieves, and trespassers; kind of gives you a warm glow....

Gee, Haddie, why do you think he came up with the story about campaign signs for an unnamed candidate? Because there are no signs with any names. Just like his story about cart vendors using corn that came from drop houses.

The MCSO shurf is a mentally ill, elderly, defunct, liar.

JoKKKe AARPiehole is crying about not being told by the Obama administration why they are investigating him.Well boo freakin hoo JoKKKe.Maybe they just can't recall, just like you couldn't recall a damm thing when you were lying your ass off during your testimony at the Candy Andy disbarrment hearing. Or could it be that they are investigating your ass because you are a corrupt criminal,racial profiling,incompetent,deralic in his duties media whore.Maybe it's because of all the civil rights of citizens you have violated or of all the prisoners that have uhm died while in your custody.Maybe it's because you use your office to intimidate & target your political opponents.The list is long with possible reasons as to why the Obama administration would be investigating you. I'm just glad someone is standing up to this corrupt politician no matter which reason they choose,I just hope they hurry up  & bring this corrupt politician up on charges & lock him away where he belongs.

This DoJ investigation began in 2004 under the Bush Administration.  Munnell's memo was a  reaction to the DoJ NOT acting on the information they had received.  It was the inquiry done by Pinal County that spurred any action at all.  The Feds already had all the information revealed to Pinal County that resulted in the release of Black Hendershott and Fox.  The DoJ did, and will continue to do, NOTHING.

Janet Napolitono was given the same information Munnell wrote in the memorandum reference the "pink underwear scandal" and the misused moneys that Hendershott used then, and she claimed nothing was wrong "as far as she could tell."  She (democrat) mysteriously received the nod from Arpaio (republican) as an endorsement for Governor against the GOP candidate Matt Salmon.  

Things that make you say hmmmmm.

Arpaio is creating more jobs than Obama by nailing these illegal alien invaders. Obama has made it plain that he cares nothing for the plight of unemployed American workers with his total cessation of workplace raids and special treeatment for any illegal that hasn't committed rape, murder or some other heinous crime. Arpaio is a far, far better man than Obama ever thought of being.

Arresting people who are working is not creating jobs. In fact, I think that's the exact opposite of "creation." Also, who gives a flying fuck how the goddamned sheriff compares to the goddamned president? They're both centipedes. I don't care which one has a longer dick.

before you write a story why don't you get all the facts first. By the way it was 6 people not 10. They laid off the other 11 over a year ago because they were not legal. And to even be able to access anything with wells fargo there is the highest level of security and identification that has to be shown to even be in the same area. learn more about commercial printing and the process those things would take before you even write about them.

The local media is dependent on the information released by the MCSO and if Sheriff Joe inflates the figures he releases you cannot really blame the Phoenix New Times.  New Times was accurate with what they reported,  Some of the printing shop employees were trying do duplicate Wells Fargo documents.  Fortunately, the bank has security features that may have made the forgeries unusable.  Let's stop blaming New Times for the actions of others.

Sorry Rick, but the New Times is WRONG. The investigation didn't reveal anything, other than there were 6 individuals SUSPECTED of being illegal were taken from the company. 11 of the people on the list hadn't worked there in quite some time. They picked up the other 4 after going to those individuals houses (and they were not employees of the company). NOTHING else was proven. No campaign posters, NO documents, NO hunting tags, NO credit card info, NO insurance docs. AND the employer had shown all documentation from eVerify that OK'd them for employment. Sheriff Joe had no answer for that. If you don't believe what I have typed here, try looking at any other news source. Sounds like the only people who were in the wrong here were the illegals themselves.
