Joe Arpaio Says He Shouldn't Be the "Poster Boy" of Immigration Protests, Notes MCSO Just Picked Up 54 Suspected Illegal Immigrants

joefatass.jpg
That's a "poster boy" all right.
For once, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he shouldn't be the center of attention.

Six young people -- the oldest 23 years old -- were arrested by Phoenix police Tuesday during a protest at Trevor Browne High School, rallying against Arpaio's methods of immigration enforcement.

To those six people -- and around 150 others who were present -- Arpaio says immigration policies have absolutely nothing to do with him.

"If these students/demonstrators have a concern over the immigration laws they should bring those concerns to Congress, State Legislators, or the White House and not use this Sheriff as their poster boy," Arpaio says.

By the way, Arpaio wants everyone to know his boys in beige bagged 54 brown folks last week.

For the second time this week, Arpaio notes the MCSO picked up 54 suspected illegal immigrants in three operations spanning a week, between that cockfighting raid, the raid on a vitamin shop, and another event in which deputies arrested six people in an alleged human smuggling plot.

Still, he claims he shouldn't be the focus for people complaining about the immigrant roundups.

"Sheriff Arpaio says he will continue to enforce the Federal and State Immigration Laws regardless of demonstrators, activists, some politicians, and the Federal Government who have concerns over his enforcements of the laws," the sheriff's office says.

Those 150 youngsters, this joint called the Department of Justice, and countless other people tend to think that Arpaio's immigration-enforcement methods aren't exactly the best, but Arpaio's still playing the I'm just enforcing the laws card.

The four adults rested at Trevor Browne the other day were released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody yesterday (the two juveniles were reportedly released as well), as an ICE statement said the youngsters "do not fall under ICE's enforcement priorities."

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time, Joe.

Joe you are the Poster Boy for Arizona's Crashed Economy.

Since your Anti Immigrant Rant began, Maricopa County now has over a half Million vacant Homes.

You still have the same number of Deputies?

How does that work?

You Idiot.

Its embarrassing to have this kind of Sheriff ....Represent Arizona Law Enforcement. Next time they hire or elect a new sheriff the County Board of Supervisors should place something on there Contract elected by the citizens that he can be led go for lying, corruption, negative publicity, and conducting and condoning racist activity in this state and of course misappropriating 8 million dollars that was for the jail upgrades and he used it for his illegal round ups.   That money was voted by the citizens for the Jail not for his personal agendas.

NOW................ if  this , one of his  never ending press releases WOULD HAVE SAID ...........MCSO HAS CLEARED 54 OF THE 45,000 WARRENTS ON BACK LOG  in one day .......... that would have been news ....... the rest ?????   JUST AN OLD  DRIED UP MEDIA WHORE ........

Arpaio has no credibility and even ICE does not support Joe and his merry men in pink. AZ will wake up and give him the boot in the upcoming election. What an ongoing embarrassment  Joe has been for the citizens of AZ, and especially embarrassing for supporting  his buddy Russell Pearce.

Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, White countries for everyone?
Everybody
says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will
be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY
into White countries.
The Netherlands and Belgium are more
crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will
solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and
quote assimilating unquote with them.
Everybody says the final
solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY White
countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those
non-Whites.
What if I said there was this RACE problem and this
RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks
were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
How long would it take anyone to realize I'm not talking about a RACE
problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what
kind of psycho black man wouldn't object to this?
But if I tell
that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my
race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives will just
say that I'm a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

Arpaio saw what he viewed as a politically beneficial bandwagon a few years ago and HE decided to jump on it, TO BENEFIT HIMSELF and for no other reason.

Arpaio, and Arpaio alone, made himself the national "poster boy."  He actively participated and carefully cultivated his national image as the "poster boy."

Well, it worked for him for a few years.  Now that it's becoming political poison, he doesn't want to own it.  LOL 

He's pushing 80 years old, doesn't have a chance at being re-elected, and is drowning in the cesspool of his own corruption, mismanagement, financial malfeasance, and incompetence.

The kids at Trevor Browne screwed up.  What should have been done was massive demonstration by US citizens of Hispanic ancestry on one of the many county-controllelocations.  Think of the publicity that would have created!

I will go on record and say I am NOT for deporting mexican students, familes and various catagories that are CRIME FREE and responsible citizens (websters version) - The in-your-face protesting is NOT the way to go!  If you remember the protesters and gangbangers marching with Mexican flags a few years ago, this is what gave birth to SB1070. Being militant is cool on campus but it does not garnish favor among the voters.

actually, if he wants to get technical about it..it is his fault..because when he raided Cactus towing (because the owner decided to back his opponent no less) he discovered numerous payments to Pearce in return for Russ giving them favorable contracts from the city of Mesa and didnt arrest him for bribes.  Instead he apparently let it go because he felt Russ would push a law just like he did that would help Arpaio.

What does he think he should be the poster boy of?

Joe doesn't want to be the center of attention anymore?

Then he needs to stop issuing press releases whenever he does something stupid.

Joe doesn't want to be the poster boy of immigrant roundups?

Then stop doing the roundups.

Joe would simply pay someone to do the time for him, just like he did the three M.C.S.O.Stooges/Fall Guys. (Hendershot and boys)

After Arpaio cooked M.C.S.O. Books for over six months prior to hanind the Doctored version to the D.O.J.  

I wonder, Did Arpaio's "Cold Case Posse" help him cook M.C.S.O. Books and stall while the Arpaio case went Cold?

Very Good Idea!

Look at the Power of a Corupted Sheriff.

They actually think they are" Kings", and Above the Law.

In Arpaio's case "Below the Law."

2005: "It's not my job to enforce immigration laws.

2007: "I'm the ONLY one enforcing immigration laws:

2012: "I want recognition as being the only enforcer of immigration laws in spite of the feds actually doing their jobs enforcing immigration laws, but I don't WANT anyone to oppose my position opposing whatever it was that I am supposed to be opposing. I can't be intimidated by those little people marching in circles. I guess next time I will have to send my posse in and have them handle it for the local police department since they don't seem to care. I think the chief over there must be looking for a job with the feds. Like the job that I had for ninety-two years one time. Then there was the time I arrested this singer, can't remember his name, and he gave me a $100 bill to release him. Was I supposed to say that? Lisa, Lisa, Lisa, they are picking on me. Oh gosh something is running down my leg...."

Yeh, that's the evolution of the MCSO shurf....

 " Being militant is cool on campus but it does not garnish favor among the voters."

Tell that to the legislators who want to form a state militia.
Tell that to Arpaio who feels the need to use a TANK and several tactical officers to raid a COCKFIGHT.

Being militant must be what the voters want because they keep electing people who have no problem with being militant.

 The PHX PD made the bust not sheriff Joe. there was not 1 sheriff car in sight of this bust just PHX PD.  Joe does not make the laws anyway.

 I bet there is something about to happen with the DOJ that has the Joker shaking in his boots.  That's why he's trying to "attack back" with the the birther nonsense the last couple weeks.  He'll claim that he is the victim because he spoke out against Obama..  Typical Joe Show...

Notice the Difference in America since the start of Arpaio, and his Puppet/fomer Deputy Pearce began the Anti-Immigrant Rant?

"Worst Recession in U.S. History."?

Racism, and Hate worse than in the 1960's?

Thats the "Evolution of this Racist's Rant."

As his mental capacities diminish his grandiose ideas become greater to him and all those he can lure into his web of deceit.

His downfall is as you stated his ability to "work it" and his lack of mental aptitude.

 I knew right away when watching the news reports that it was Phoenix P.D. They were professional, organized, were NOT wearing ski masks, and none of them appeared to be over 60 while wearing adult undergarments and muttering with their clacking teeth, "It's against our law, whatever the shurf says the law is today".

Yes, MCSO was not in sight. And no one was injured or killed.

Your point is very valid.

what does PHX PD have to do with Sheriff Joke and his persecution complex?
Ok I stand corrected from what I read in the article I thought Joke and his merry band of brownshirted thugs were responsible for the raid. My bad.
