Joe Arpaio Blames Obama for Not Arresting Employers Who Hire Undocumented Workers

After the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office pulled off its 70th "employer sanctions operation" (which MCSO now refers to as a "criminal employment operation"), we pointed out yet again that no employers were arrested, or sanctioned, in the operation.

Arpaio now says that's probably a job for the Obama administration.

Earlier this week, we spotted in Arpaio's response to the Justice Department racial-discrimination lawsuit that the Sheriff claims no employer has ever been arrested or tied to any violations as a result of these operations.

Arpaio also denied the existence of MCSO "raids," although we found several examples of Arpaio claiming his deputies had just carried out "raids," including yesterday's "raid" of Lam's Asian and International Supermarket in Maryvale.

Although MCSO said detectives suspect 21 of the store's 27 employees are using fake IDs to work there, only nine were arrested. The rest ran, and are still on the run, according to an update from MCSO.

Not really groundbreaking stuff from MCSO, but there's a quote from Arpaio included in the press release that has an odor reminiscent of a Taco Bell bathroom.

"The federal government may want to look into expanding the guest worker program and streamlining the ability to get a visa," Arpaio's statement says. "Also the Obama administration should focus their efforts in detecting and arresting the employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens."

Gee, you'd think it would be the Sheriff's Office that may want to step it up after sanctioning zero employers after 70 "employer sanctions operations."

For good measure, here's the last line of the press release: "In the meanwhile, Arpaio will continue to enforce state and federal immigration laws."

Joe is not only redefining the law to his own ends, he advertises it. if he is following the letter of the law, why does he call his operations "employer sanctions" when the employer is the only one he doesnt concern himself with? if he was following the letter of the law like he claims, he would call them "employee sanctions" or he would do something to the employers while he is making the raids called "employer sanctions". he is saying one thing and doing another which is completely different. by doing that he is proving he is enforcing the law as he wants and not as it is written

wouldnt that be the Joke;s job to ignore, and let the feds handle? why would Obama do it? It's not his job as president to arrest people is it?

Seriously folks...JAF (Joe Arpaio Fan) needs to be continually reported to the authorities.

The sick fool appears to be very mentally unstable with his continued threats of violence and wanting to kill people.


JAF is an internet stalker and time & time again they have proven to be mentally unstable and turned to violence to hurt innocent people to make their point.


We need to start forwarding his post to the FBI for investigation before he hurts himself or others. Its for his own good and the innocent lives that could be saved.

WTF, "In the meanwhile, Arpayaso will continue to enforce State and Federal Immigration Laws". is it or it isn't. I'm telling you man, this imbecile shurf even lies to his image in the mirror.

BTW, was JAFucker among those apprehended in the Flaccid Failure's "raids"? He hasn't been around for while. I knew that spic-licker was an alien. Got his dirty ass deported finally.

So what precisely is the purpose of the Employer Sanction Law? Why did these buffoons from the fringe, pass this piece of law that basically doesn't work? As I understand it, the American president wants to target the dangerous criminal aliens in the U.S. And deport their illegal fannies back whence they came. Employers don't exactly fit their criteria for violent criminal aliens.

Well, considering AZ received it's gold star from the Supreme Court and it's EMPLOYER Sanctions law, primarily because...business licensing is the domain of the State....Joe might want to think about getting some new attorneys for us to pay.

its also funny that the self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" needs Obama to come do his job for him. i dont even like Obama, but he would do a better job than "geriatric Joe".

@danzigsdaddy

The employers likely give the Old Fool a substantial campaign donation in exchange for him not citing them.

That's where he gets a portion of his campaign funds.

@ptcgaz Yep it's his job to arrest all illegal aliens not just ones who have a past criminal record.

@PissOnArpaio Clearly you are who is mentally unstable. Anybody who criticizes law enforcement for doing the job they are supposed to do is mentally unstable. So before you accuse me of wrongdoing you had better take a good look at yourself in the mirror. You are an oxymoron.

@comrade"Arpayaso"  I get it! That's funny! Do you mind if I use that myself from now on?

@comrade Local police enforce other federal laws such as bank robbery, kidnapping, drugs and ID theft just to name a few so why can't they enforce federal immigration law too? And there are also state laws dealing with those same federal crimes meaning that illegal immigration can be a state crime as well. Are you an idiot or what?

@Lone_Wolf And what is the prurpose of our ID theft laws? Our buffoons passed that law that will be enforced. If you don't think ID theft is wrong how about posting your personal info here for others to use.

@PissOnArpaio It takes these Maricopa blue hairs a long long time to learn:  Arpaio by

40 points in 2000

26 points in 2004

13 points in 2008

6 points in 2012

Arpaio spent $8.2 million in 2012, almost $15 per vote.  More than all the other Sheriff races in the country combined - and 80%% from out of state people wanting to keep Arpaio out of their state.

And he's out of all the money he scammed over the last 20 years.

@PissOnArpaio So you think Arpaio should allow people to break the law? How many crimes have you comitted and how many times have you been in jail? You criticize law enforcement for doing their jobs because you want to be able to break those laws. We've got your number.

The president has no authority to order arrests. That's up to the FBI and the Justice Department.

@PissOnArpaio Me a badass? Take a good look at yourself in the mirror you idiot!  I support law enforcemnent but you think they should be harmed.  You advocate people should be able to break our laws but I demand that law breakers go to jail. You want everything for free and when I tell you that you cannot get everything for free you call me a racist. Need I say more?  Fool you are who needs mental help. Do you really think you can mock law enforcement and get away with it? Big Brother is watching you.
