Sonoran Concrete lost one-quarter of its workforce yesterday.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio's latest "employer sanctions operation"/illegal-immigrant roundup resulted in the arrest of about one-quarter of a Glendale small business' employees yesterday.

Sonoran Concrete was the small business raided in operation number 68, and 18 people were arrested for allegedly using false identifications, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

MCSO served the search warrant early yesterday, and deputies were looking for 20 employees who were "likely using false identifications to gain employment," according to the Sheriff's Office

The day before the raid, Sonoran Concrete had about 75 employees.

A former employee is credited with ratting out the company to the Sheriff's Office.

MCSO suspects all 18 people arrested of being in the country illegally, and six of those people were turned over to the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Alleged criminals rounded up in the most recent MCSO employment operation include construction workers, Mexican restaurant workers, and patio-furniture repairmen.

Through 68 operations, 689 people have been arrested in MCSO's workplace roundups.

The 18 people arrested yesterday face identity-theft and forgery charges, MCSO says.

If somebody stole your ID to get credit cards or even a job, wouldn't you be upset? I look forward to Joe's Sanction number 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74 and so on.

Sheriff Arpaio's workplace raids are no different than drug and crime suppression sweeps. In case you did not know, Identity Theft is illegal under both federal and state laws.  Those arrested were employed using fraudulent ID's.

Can anyone (like maybe JokeOurPieholeFan) tell us the last time MCSO busted an EMPLOYER in one of their EMPLOYER Sanctions raids/media stunts?

Again, there were no arrests of the one's doing the hiring. More likely they had their picture taken with Sheriff Joe.

For all you who oppose this what part about the words NOT LEGAL TO WORK HERE, IDENTITY THEFT IS A CRIME and THOSE PEOPLE ARRESTED STOLE JOBS FROM US CITIZENS don't you understand???  How would you feel if your jobs are stolen by illegal aliens?

@Princeton Yes BUT. Most of the people caught up in any of these sweeps are already victims in one way or another. Penalizing the victims does little to solve the overall problem. Furthermore, most US & world citizens are very aware that the laws of most nations are only for the little people - the victims. We are tired of this unequal "justice." If the sourc(es) of the problem were addressed adequately and equitably for once and for all there would be no more victims. How did I hear it put recently? Something to the effect that we do not have a JUSTICE system. We have a LEGAL system that mostly enables those that have and stifles those that have not.

 @Princeton Apparently your Ivy League education didn't teach you about racial-profiling.

 

The Justice Department has already concluded that the Flaccid Fuckup does indeed racially-profile Hispanics and to my knowledge, they are working on the 432 fucked-up sex crimes against children the MCSO intentionally ignored.

 @WhoKnows 

 

Of the 68 raids there has been 1 arrest of the employer.

 

In that case MCSO failed to properly collect and protect the evidence, as well as failed to follow proper investigative techniques in regards to interviews and such.

 

The Employer lost his business license for 2 days, then filed suit to get it back and won, because of what I state above.

 

Yet Joe and his delusional followers insist these are 'Employer Sanction Raids'... yeah right...

 @WhoKnows It is likely the employer did not know because likely the illegal immigrant employees passed E-Verify checks.  The only thing necessary to pass is a correct name, birth date, social security number and drivers license number.  Any ID thief would probably have that information.

 @WhoKnows I don't recall the last time the Flaccid Fuckup busted an employer.

 @JoeArpaioFan Joe, I see "thereallpenzone.com" is your site.  I wonder why the anonymity.  An employee of the MCSO seems a high probability.  We will never know the true number of persons killed in the Maricopa County jails under Sheriff Arpaio, since he, typically, uses many ruses to obscure the number; it is at least sixty.  In none of the death cases (even those in which the County paid out significant settlements or awards) was any detention officer ever investigated or disciplined by the Sheriff. 

 

The Braillard case is in the headlines, but there have been so many others.  Brian Crenshaw for instance,  He was serving a short sentence for shoplifting. Crenshaw  was legally blind. He refused to show his ID in a lunch line and Sheriff’s deputies pushed him to the wall, punched and kicked him, and placed him in lockdown.

 

For the next six days, nobody entered or left his cell.  Crenshaw was found unconscious with a broken neck, several broken toes, and extensive internal injuries.  He was comatose, his intestines had ruptured, and his vertebrae needed to be straightened with a halo. Doctors told Crenshaw's mother that his internal injuries were so severe they had to surgically open his stomach to relieve swelling.  He died as a result of injuries that had been untreated for six days.  

 

The family sued and the lawsuit against Arpaio and his office resulted in an award of $2 million.  

 

In this case, as in the Braillard, Norberg and numerous other cases, the Sheriff’s Office destroyed evidence, faked documents, spent millions in delaying tactics.  The County has had no insurance to cover any of this since the $8.25 million Norberg settlement in 1999.Who could vote for this Sheriff, an incompetent, expensive, corrupt and sadistic man?  Shame on any who do. 

 

Shame on you fan for playing at this immoral and inhuman game.

 @JoeArpaioFan Congrats to this web site for exposing the truth about Penzone. It's pretty funny that the web site says that it is hard to believe that this clown wants to lead the third largest sheriffs department in the nation. Oh so true. keep up the good work.

@JoeArpaioFan How about arpaio's over 430 un-investigated sex crimes against children and women? Over 430 predators running loose for years. How about the un-investigated murder? Anyone who would vote for arpaio with this track record is sick.

 @JoeArpaioFan Joe, could you compete with a man who had a third grade Mexican education, who spoke English poorly, had limited familiarity with the culture, and faced arrest at his every turn?

 

If not, you, and anyone else unable to successfully compete, have bigger problems than illegal aliens.  But so ahead and blame them; relieve the satisfaction the Germans got from blaming the Jews for their own problems.

 

Maybe that'll be Joe's next target.

@JoeArpaioFan Don't you get it yet? You and I must be fat, white Anglos. Any African descent person is a fat white Anglo. Any Semitic person is fat white Anglo. Any Hispanic or NDN person is a fat white Anglo. Anybody who opposes open border agenda & giving US jobs to "immigrants" just has to be a fat white Anglo or a wanna-be, iow Stockholm Syndrome. The idea of citizen preference is xenophobic doncha know? So if that is the case let us give up our citizenship. What benefit is it if we cannot even have a job or the benefits of unemployment or welfare if we need it even though generations of our families paid to create it? Or conversely, let us take our citizenship back & restore it's meaning & value. Just joking . . . kind of.

 @Princeton  @WhoKnows Incorrect, eVerify uses Form I-9 which requires physical documents be presented and confirmed to be the same as written on the I-9.

 

But you do point out what a waste of time eVerify is.  It is simple to bypass, it can't prevent the hiring of ANYONE because you can only use eVerify after someone starts work. 

 

And worst of all, it CREATES identity theft.

@bobunf @JoeArpaioFan Yes. Nobody knows because, I suspect, the family must have a certain amount of $ resources to prosecute. Most is covered up because, as I was once told "One government agency does not prosecute another government agency." From what I can tell, this problem is increasing across the nation.

 @truthseekeraz  I am trying to figure out why this dingbat keeps bringing up the subject of failed sex crimes. Is there proof of that?

robert_graham
robert_graham topcommenter

 @truthseekeraz  Is 'sex crimes" all you can come up as an attack?  How about the fact that if Penzone were sheriff he would ignore domestic violence cases simply because he has been accused of that crime in 2003.  I'm sure you wouldn't mind it if he were to ignore them would you?

 @marcy E-Verify should be able to be used even after a person is hired not just prior to employment.

robert_graham
robert_graham topcommenter

 @marcy Probably those who use stolen ID's do have paperwork to back it up. They likely not only have the drivers license or ID but also the Social Security number and whatever else they need to illegally get hired.  E-Verify needs to be improved but not eliminated.

sarum

@JoeArpaioFan It is not acceptable because it functions as job creation for illegals & job maintenance for MCSO. Just an endless waste of $ and no tangible improvement except that some people stay employed and some people actually get legal out of it.

 @WhoKnows  @PrincetonJust Joe has not gone after employers doesn't mean he shouldn't go after employees.  If the illegal employees passed the e-verify check then the employer did nothing wrong.

 @Princeton are you retarded? where have i ever said i do not believe illegal immigrants should not be prosecuted? i, unlike you find rape and murder to be more heinous crimes. there should be priority placed on these crimes instead of sweeping them aside just to go after dishwashers and landscapers, like joe does. if you would rather have a family member raped or murdered instead of an illegal immigrant washing your dishes, you are a fucking idiot. that would also make you a racist if you put them as a higher priority

@JoeArpaioFan Do not minimize sex crimes. They are serious life destroying events that can make the victims suicidal if they live through it. Sure some people appear to recuperate well but most victims feel unworthy for the rest of their lives. Unworthy of good life partner for starters. With this in mind please think of the "rape trees" and constant attacks female "immigrants" suffer to come here. It is horrible.

 @JoeArpaioFan  so since joe has been accused of negligence leading to a few deaths, does that mean he's going to ignore murder? he was also accused of negligence that led to child molestation, does that mean he's going to ignore child molestation?  oh, wait....he already does
