Joe Arpaio Throws Another Fit After ICE Says No Thanks to Attempted MCSO Delivery

Immigration and Customs Enforcement
For the second time, Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office put out a press release to complain that Immigration and Customs Enforcement "refused" to take custody of a suspected illegal immigrant.

The story from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is that the Human Smuggling Unit pulled over a car, and the driver didn't have a license.

The driver was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail for that, while deputies phoned up ICE in an attempt to turn over the passenger, as the press release says both people in the car admitted to being in the country illegally.

As is usually the case, ICE asked a series of questions to see if the person in question falls under the agency's enforcement priorities. That person did not, sparking another Arpaio press release on the matter.

To continue the non-controversy, the suspected illegal immigrant was turned over to Border Patrol agents in Casa Grande.

"I continue to enforce the laws but keep running into road blocks," Arpaio says. "My office will continue its hard work in efforts to serve the residents of Maricopa County."

We sent an e-mail to MCSO asking if there was an indication that this suspected immigrant would fall under ICE's enforcement priorities, so we'll update this post if we get a response.

UPDATE: And here's the response, from MCSO Sergeant Brandon Jones: "We contact ICE as a standard protocol during these situations."

The last time Arpaio called out ICE for "refusing" to take a suspected illegal immigrant, ICE officials were under the impression that Arpaio didn't quite have his story straight.

ICE usually picks up suspected illegal immigrants from local law enforcement is when the suspect is accused of committing a crime, or when they have recently crossed the border, but Arpaio claimed ICE "refused" to take a recent border-crosser.

"I expected that it would happen eventually, so I had a back up plan in place which was to take these illegal immigrants not accepted by ICE to the Border Patrol," Arpaio said at the time.

According to MCSO's press release, "So as directed by the Sheriff, last night deputies took the two suspects to the Border Patrol."

ICE's side of the story was a bit different.

"When a check of DHS databases did not reveal criminal histories or prior immigration encounters, ICE agents referred the sheriff's office to the Ajo Station of the U.S. Border Patrol," an ICE spokeswoman said. "Border Patrol is the primary DHS agency responding to recent border crossers encountered in the Gila Bend desert area."

Agents from the Ajo station made the trip up to Gila Bend to pick up those suspected illegal immigrants in that case.

Just read about what happened in New York City and you'll start to realize how Joe Arpaio is a HERO. This illegal alien from Mexico named Orlando Orea mutilated a British national(who was here legally) and fled the country. Somehow, Mister Orea had amassed a pretty long rap sheet with many violent offenses during his illegal stay in New York and had never been deported. Somehow, Mister Orea was able to leave America via a one-way ticket(paid with cash) from JFK International Airport to Mexico City with just his Mexican passport, despite being here illegally. It's time to round up these illegal aliens and deport them ASAP or else more of them will murder, rape, and pillage before escaping back to their taco huts in the FILTHIEST COUNTRY OF THE WORLD = MEXICO

KillerBee, a real man would have left his posts up and stood up to whatever outcome came from it, be it legal action or responses you do not like.

The old mush master is trying to spin this now as how he is directing the federal agency employees to do their job, following 'his' protocol. As if he is that important.

 

Frankly, my dear, the feds don't give a damn about the local county sheriff, or his protocol, or whether he likes the way they do their job. In fact, with regard to MCSO, if it weren't for apathy, they wouldn't care at all.

 

Don't let the door hit you, Shurf. Time to crank up those damn shredders.

 @FRANCIS Joe Arpaio is NOT a hero.

 

BTW, what does a story in New York (about 1800 miles away from AZ) have to with the MCSO shurf and his repeated failures?

 @youproductsucks i brought up joe because A) i didnt know it would fall to PPD, and B) joe has been all up in arms about the computer threats and cybercrimes and has been trying to get prosecution on them. so since i was wrong on who's jurisdiction it would fall........i apologize. as for joe wanting to go after all those computer threats and crimes.......i still stand on bringing joes name into it and saying he should do something on it

 @youproductsucks at this point of the conversation, it wouldnt really matter what agency dealt with it. a officer was threatened, and the police do tend take looking out for their own very seriously. anyone stupid enough to threaten a cop is dangerously stupid and they tend to jump on stuff like that

youproductsucks

 @danzigsdaddy ...and Penzone was threatened as well.  I would venture to guess he'd make his complaint with the agency he is currently most acquainted with.

 @danzigsdaddy Not sure how this has anything to do with Arpaio. 

 

PPD is probably the agency who will deal with this issue as that is where PNT headquarters are and there were direct threats made to specific members of PNT staff.

 @JoeArpaioFan  @danzigsdaddy Let me count the ways..scott norberg, and the 10 + others murdered in the jail, yet not ONE investigation..abuses his financial forms and skirts the law by using the law meant to protect his home address and instead using it to keep the public from knowing how many commercial properties he now owns..and how he came up with the 900k to purchase them by not properly disclosing his financials as required by law (same law he tried to charge Donahue with violating ironically). Defrauding the county with the jail commissary funds and pink underwear sales. Im sure there are some tax laws that are being violated in the process as well. SCA/election fraud. Abuse of office as it pertains to using his office to intimidate opponents, critics, citizens, former employees(WAY too many to cite specifically but i will if need be..ive kept track over the years)..ignoring hundreds of sex crimes while working on a Dbacks fraud case.  Misspending almost 100 million, while refusing to do an audit (Embezzlement?). SWAT raid that killed a puppy (and joe is supposed to be this great animal lover..HA) and he did nothing. Abuse of grand juries...im serious, i can go on all day...sending deputies to intimidate city workers, claiming they are sworn peace officers when in fact they were detention officers. Not following protocol in traffic "sweeps", violating countless citizens civil rights. I have no idea why i just wasted my time typing that, as you will just ignore the facts regardless like you always do..but you asked, i answered...

 @david_saint01 that would be you, me, lemons, and hendley if we did complain. that is 4 different complaints, how would he explain doing nothing? its not a rape or child molestation, so what would be his excuse?

 @Flyer9753  @danzigsdaddy

 I certainly hope so.  His posts were not funny and quite distrubing, IMHO.  There has to be a point where the line must be drawn, and death threats seem to go beyond that.
