Joe Arpaio's Deputies Raid Taco Shops in Workplace Immigrant Roundup Number 72

Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office is proud to announce that 11 taco shop employees are off the streets today, thanks to the boys in beige.

This is the 72nd such workplace raid by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office branded as "employer sanctions operations," "criminal employment operations", and now, "operations targeting false identifications used to gain employment."

MCSO hit up two locations of America's Taco Shop, one in Phoenix and one in Tempe.

"[I]ts website says they are the home of the greatest Carne Asada in the Valley," says the press release from the Sheriff's Office.

MCSO says 16 employees were found to have used false identities to get work there, and 11 of those people were arrested.

Of those 11 people arrested, seven were turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, while the other four were booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on identity theft and forgery, and likely will get special treatment (and not in a good way) from County Attorney Bill Montgomery.

As our colleague Stephen Lemons has been following, the folks scooped up by MCSO in these workplace raids typically face a much more serious charge for faking a Social Security number for work than college kids do for using a false ID. These immigrants are then held without bond, per Arizona's Prop 100, which is supposed to be used for immigrants accused of serious felonies.

In response to the Justice Department's lawsuit against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and Arpaio, alleging unconstitutional policing, lawyers for Arpaio admitted "that MCSO has not arrested employers as no employer has been tied into any violations," in these workplace raids, although "employer sanctions" used to be the facade for such raids.

I love to hear about the illegals leaving this country......AWESOME...

If only Sheriff Joe had found and deported the illegal that shot my friend in the eye thus blinding him in that eye for life before that one of many illegals could have committed the robbery and needless, senseless shooting.


A Marine Corps member who had served his country well defending the USA only to return home to be severely injured by an foreign invader... an invader so many folks support!!!!!


I truly wish that all supporters of illegals are shot by those invaders. Seems like fair play to me.

Funny how the minds of people like Ted Bollinger work. They think that crime is only committed by those who are NOT white.

Right one, good job. My message to Joe is to raid more businesses. Take all illegals off the street.

How ironic, after falling, and breaking his "Pink Taco" Arpaio's first action is to bust a Taco Shop?!!

To Funny Joe.

I hope for the sake of fairness (which a lot of poster's on here claim does not happen) the owner of america's taco shop and his manager's get hauled in and arresetd too. The employer and employee who hired the illegals needs to be held accountable also.Exploiting our illegal immigrant workforce has had a tremendous negitive impact on the illegal immigrant families in our state. Families are being ripped apart because of laxed effort and attitude by joe to agressively arrest the employer's of those people.

hey who cares if they don't go after dangerous criminals.  it's good to allow the real criminals to thrive because they make money and making money is good for the economy so it must be good to fill the jails with proprietors of non-violent crime.


When someone showed up working next door to the PF Changs I used to work at the police gave me no information about what kind of ID they actually used.


For all I know they didn't even use an ID, maybe they stole the copy of my ID from a file? Who knows the police sure didn't care.


The police did absolutely nothing other than take the case and say sorry he's not there anymore and that's all we can tell you.

And there will be more raids because those people arrested did steal jobs from Americans.  Notice I used the word "did".

Let's see now....we want to go get some of those illegals and either lock them up or run them out of our America.  Should we look for those kind of people at a Taco place or should we maybe look at starbucks....hmmmm I think may Taco place would be the correct answer!  Bahahahaha!

The numerous ways to get hold of the RECALL ARPAIO PETITION.


> First, there are three full time office locations where petitions are available for signing and, most importantly, where you can pick up petitions to circulate:


55 E. Thomas in Phoenix - the law offices of Snow and Carpio

Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM:


1615 N 36th St in Phoenix 

Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM. In addition this office remains open on Mondays until 7 PM.


5110 N Central, Suite 330, in Phoenix form 2:30 PM to 7:30 PM Monday through Friday, and irregularly earlier in the day, and on Saturdays and Sundays.  


> Second, you can sign the petition at the Garage Bike Shop, 9201 S Avenida del Yaqui, Guadalupe.  They are open Monday through Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM, and Sunday from 10 AM to 4 PM.  When the Bike Shop is closed for lunch or other reasons, you can sign the petition next door at the Pan y Pane Bakery or at the San Diego Bay Restaurant, also next door.


> Third, we will be at the Burton Barr Central Library 1221 N Central Ave in Phoenix on Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM. 


AND


At the Firebird International Raceway event this Saturday and Sunday.  It's an all day event; the address is 20,000 S Maricopa Road, Gate 2, Chandler. From Phoenix Metro area and points West, follow Interstate 10 to exit 162 (Wild Horse Pass) and follow the signs for Firebird International Raceway.  From Tucson and points East, go north on Interstate 10 to exit 163 (Queen Creek Rd.) take Queen Creek Rd. west 1/2 mile and make right hand turn onto Wild Horse Pass (Maricopa Rd.)  OR take NEW exit 162 (Wild Horse Pass) and follow the signs to Firebird International Raceway.


We also have petition circulators at many libraries, parks, grocery stores, movie theatres, bookstores, and other locations on weekends and during the week, but we don't get definitive schedules for these in time to post them.


>  Fourth, you can download the petition from our website at www.recallarpaio.com/petition. It must be printed on 8-1/2 x 14 LEGAL length paper. If you have problems downloading or printing the petitions, your local Kinko’s, Staples, Office Max and other such businesses can do it for you. I think 5 petitions done this way should cost about a dollar.


>  Fifth, we can snail mail petitions to you.  www.recallarpaio.com  


AND money is an absolute essential to the success of this campaign.  Please donate what you can.  Checks should be made payable to Respect Arizona and sent to:


Respect Arizona

P O Box 15355

Phoenix, AZ 85060-5355


OR, donate with credit or debit card at this web address: www.recallarpaio.com/donate


Thank you so much for your help with this truly important project.

There We go again, if anybody thinks that the OLD DRAMA QUEEN is gonna give up the GOLDEN EGGS GOOOSE.... WRONG.  N-WAY, I thought the THE OLD fool said that He was going to do His job after comming out of the Hospital, You know; go after the real criminals, serve all those warrants that had been sitting there in His pigsty office. and then the Mother  Fucker has the nerve to bitch: "Why do They hate me so much?". And how pathetic was to ask for money while convalescing from that "Accident", not to mention that now His wife got involved in it...more pathetic even, He knows very well that all the naive ones would fall for that, and send that "beautiful" money. You know, just whine, moan and say stupid shit -that He calls jokes- with the cameras on (of course)for the people to see and say: "OMG, get better Joe" while Joe is probably laughing all the way to the bank.

Nickle Bag Joe will never change, His nickname says it all, always go after the "low hanging /fruit", where there's no danger of getting a nail broken, is not like a dishwasher is going to throw the dishes at Him or a landscaper is going to "mow Him down", You know...arrest THOSE DANGEROUS CRIMINALS; while the rapists - which it seems He is so fond of-and felons are free. WHAT A FNG JOKE OF A  SHURF.

To the Joe Supporters : 

                                       I have been a Neighborhood Watch Director for almost 6 years. I live in a COUNTY ISLAND which is M.C.S.O.'s sole jurisdiction. And in the time that my neighbors and I have been fighting to clean up our community, the M.C.S.O. has done VERY little to help us in our endeavor. 99 % of the crimes committed in our area are by LEGAL U.S. Citizens. So do you want to know what really ticks me off ? YOU DO ! You seem to think that your racist agenda is more important than the meth dealer getting kids hooked down the street from me ! You are so damn short-sighted that you only care about crime that YOU think is important. You could care less because it's not in your back yard. Well it is in MINE so those of you who keep sending Arpaio money are in fact CAUSING crime to continue to be ignored in my community.

I hope Sheriff Joe's boys keep up the good work. These illegals need to realize they are CRIMINALS! They commited a crime when they crossed into OUR country illegally. Every single one of them needs rounded up and shipped home!!!

@obbopp Your logic is very twisted. Would you declare war on U.S. citizens if your friend was shot by a U.S. citizen ? Furthermore, the Recall is NOT about supporting illegal aliens. It is about much more than that. If you would open your mind a little ......you would know this already.

@TeaPublican If you think that "taco places" are the only food establishments using illegal immigrant labor then you are as stupid as your name suggests.

Good luck going into the kitchen of any restaurant anywhere in the United States and NOT finding an illegal immigrant preparing your food.

If you really want your mind blown - admittedly, for you,  not a difficult task - go see who gets that food out of the fields and packaged up.

TeaPublican, I see U R one of the DRAMA QUEEN's naive ones. All the POS Shurf has to do is just go anf grab some "Illegals" once on a while and all the CHEERLEADERS  are cheering for the QUEEN. Then the OLD FOOL suffers a "Posibly staged accident",-since nobody has even explained what really happened- to appear on camera (MEDIA WHORE) at the Hospital, whinning and talking shit while drugged up, all this for the purposse of gainning some sympathy....but that's not all; while convalescing His wife has the "opportunity" to ask for MO' MONEY....what the fuck, They see They HERO DOWN, why not....what better way to do it. He knows to play You like a violin. BTW, Those "Illegals" ain't going anywhere, if You haven't realized by now, U R the ones that are gonna be a MINORITY sonner than You think, BUAHAHAHAHAHAHA. This part of the AMERICAN CONTINENT has to go back to its ORIGINAL habitants: THE MEXICANS. U R the Fng ILLEGAL INVADER since before U were even born, that is, if Your ancestors were some of those INVADERS from the Old World. How about that, BUAHAHAHAHAHAHA, FUCKING ILLEGAL TEAPUGNANT, and now go and finish Your "TEA" better yet, go and kiss the DRAMA QUEEN's ass while doing it.

@bobunf The recall campaign is over... done... finished. They are broke and for a very good reason. But they won't tell you that because they still want your money. However they are going to be audited and what will be discovered is massive fraud. And did you know that their listing of donors is going to be disclosed as it is public record.

@Empacee1 U seem so familiar.  Haven't I seen you here before?  Nobody really condones attacking the low hanging fruit.  This is endless broken record - futile.  We need to go after source.  It's just so amazing to me how "connected" is the low hanging fruit and how big names like Haley Barbour actually go on TV (last week) and say how we need to let more in because hundreds of thousands of jobs in U.S. go unfilled in both highly skilled and unskilled areas because there simply are nobody here to do these jobs - he presented this opinion as if not letting in massively more "immigrants" is harming U.S. financial recovery.  So I will repeat - it is amazing to me how well "connected" illegal immigrants are when so many citizens are unemployed.

@Empacee1 How many EMPLOYERS has the Joker busted in his EMPLOYER sanctions raids?


The answer is ZERO.

@Empacee1 Yeah, waste all OUR money getting the undangerous people off the streets so we can leave the dangerous ones out there to harm us.

Just backward.  I don't understand your logic.

I don't feel it's a proper usage of our limited funds.

@RobAZ I agree the majority of illegal immigrants have elevated themselfs into blue collar jobs and are not just employed in the agricultual and hospitatilty industreies. The issue many citizens have about that are wage's offered now .Twenty years ago a house frammer would recieve on average 20 dollars an hour today because of the illegal immigrant workfocre those wages have declind to an average of 8 dollars an hour,the result an mass exodus of worker's who could not support their families. Its pretty much the same in all fields where illegal immigrants have had the opportunity to gain employment. Hopefully if there is a new immigration reform the authorities will enfoce hiring laws.

@Comrade   Well you are sure in a good mood today aren't you!   I am thinking it's because your just "sick" of losing all the time!  Yup, that's it.  You know, one of these days you people will win a political office, maybe city dog catcher or something like that.  Then I am sure you feel a lot better.

@yourproductsucks @WhoKnows  YPS, Shut the fuck up. You get more ignorant with every comment.  Not one of your hero politicans dare go after employers and you and I both know they could.  No republican ever offers any legislation to make it harder for employers or charge them yet idiots like you kiss Arpaio's ass and all the so called lawmakers at the State Capitol in these raids. Fuck off. You are still as coward cop and you always will be.

@Empacee1 @TaxpayingVoter I wouldn't want my taxes going to your kids,how much did you actualy pay last year?I doubt very much working at McDonalds.

I am self employed and a tradesman,and 33% of all I make goes to uncle sam.

at 120 k,thats a lot of dough,but render to Caesar as they say.

I could care less what they do with it,its not really mine anymore!

@Empacee1  Fuck you and your inbred family you and your sister created.  The only families being hurt are those that are arrested in these raids for working. People like you are hardly even worthy of their labor yet everytime you eat a meal, you can bet some of that food was picked by one of those so-called criminals. If you don't like it-starve.  No one will miss you.

@Empacee1 @TaxpayingVoter lol empacee, i guess you arent aware of the hundreds of pedophiles still on the streets preying on children because of your hero joe..see, a few years back, Hendershott had a friend that developed facial recognition software and MCSO used a cover story about training to go there for a week or so and sell this product..only problem is, they pulled half the SVU detectives off their cases to do so, and in turn they ignored HUNDREDS of sex crimes against kids..now that you know, do you still support joe? I cant imagine anyone would want to align themselves with someone whos actions allowed pedophiles to remain free instead of in prison, and allow them more opportunities to hurt children..

@Empacee1@TaxpayingVoter"If they dont care about using someone else's social or name, what makes you think they care if they commit other crimes?"

Well, empacee, given that the chances that those stolen ID's they bought or were provided with most likely were ORIGINALLY STOLEN by one of our fine, legal, upstanding fellow US citizens I guess we should just give them a break.  Kind of like with drugs...we only arrest the guy buying a nickel bag but leave the guy with the kilo who sold it to them alone, right?

I find it very, very, very hard to believe that in all the years MCSO has been arresting illegal immigrants on ID theft charges they have not been able to compile intelligence and information of those who actually provide them with the ID's.

@Empacee1 @TaxpayingVoter I don't think you are capable of understanding logic.

@TaxpayingVoter @Empacee1 So you are saying it is ok for someone to jump the border and steal your name/social to unlawfully gain employement and take a job away from a potential American as long as they arent breaking other laws? LOL

Do you realize how many crimes illegals commit? How do other countries deal with illegals? Not like we do, they dont ship them home, they lock them in a cell and forget about them.

You are a tax payer? Do you appreciate your hard earned taxes paying for these criminals? How about your tax money going to food/clothe and educate their kids?
