Bill Montgomery Insults Undocumented Hispanics in PSAs, Then Seeks Their Help

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

So what do you do if you're in law enforcement and you want someone's help catching and prosecuting bad guys?

If you're Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, you start off with an insult.

That's what Monty does in new public service announcements he's rolling out in Spanish and English, aimed at undocumented Hispanics.

The ads feature Latino couples, kids, dancers, and Monty himself, speaking Spanish, in an open collar, like he's trying to ape The Most Interesting Man in the World.

Only this is no Dos Equis commercial.


Bill Montgomery: Sure I helped deport your mom, now I need you to stop being selfish and come out of the shadows...

"It's easy to stay in the shadows, to stay quiet and mind your own business and don't get involved," he tells the people he's persecuted and prosecuted with the assistance of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

See, being undocumented is a piece of cake in Arizona. You aliens without papers don't know how lucky you got it.

"But there's something more important," Monty continues, "something that's greater than each one of us. That something is our community."

Which is why Monty has been prosecuting dishwashers and cleaning ladies arrested in Arpaio's anti-immigrant raids of businesses. Because busting up Latino families is good for communities.

"We don't stand for crime," Monty tells the camera. "Crime gets reported. When you report crime, your immigration status doesn't matter. That's the law."

That's a new one on me, since in 2010, when Senate Bill 1070 was being debated, critics persistently pointed out that there was no exception made for victims, only to be dismissed by the likes of now-recalled and disgraced state Senator Russell Pearce.

So I fired off an email to Monty's flack Jerry Cobb, asking the law Monty's citing.

Cobb referred me to SB 1070, section 2b, the section that requires cops to inquire into the immigration status of those they come in contact with, if police have reasonable suspicion to believe these individuals are in the country illegally.

MontyPug is a fucking joke.

I seriously thought he'd bring his West Point Academy discipline with him to MCAO. Instead he's turned the famed academy (the same academy that produced Presidents Ulysses Grant and Dwight D. Eisenhower as well as famed Lt. Colonel George Custer, who, along with his wife Libby, are interred there) into a joke.

I don't recall MontyPug ever trying any cases and TBH I don't think he even wants the job as County Attorney for Maricopa County.

I still cant figure out why illegal immigrants put themselves in harms way living in phoenix and the surrounding area's . They cant legally work here ,get a driver's license here, or receive welfare. But California offer's practically every benefit available to our citizens with no questions asked. The population there has open arms and deep pockets. Living in Arizona is not going to change for them.

Montgomery did his palling around with Chris Simcox in the Desert, hunting Mexicans. He offers him a sweet plea deal while disregarding the damage he did to children and parents who are victims.

He slams every charge he can on dishwashers working with fake IDs when he could easily charge them with a far lesser misdemeanor and now wants trust? 

HA! Good luck Montgomery. No one trusts you.  You sold your soul to Joe Arpiao and you can't serve two masters.  Arpaio will have another worksite raid and you will forget all about this.

This fellow lost all my respect when he cut a deal with the Minute Man founder Chris Simcox on child molestation charges!

Ok, we ALL know Montypoodle is an idiot, but in the grand scheme of all things AZ, he's just a minor league idiot, and not a major league one like Horne and Arpaio, so stuff like this isn't picked up by other Phx media outlets.

Of course in Monty's eyes the reporters immigration status doesn't matter... that is Monty's way of saying, "your status does not matter, we will arrest you too if we think we can get away with it"

F'ing POS that he is..

They should be telling Montgomery to FO is what they should be doing right along with the rest of us that don't believe in corruption. 

Montgomery is a POS and nothing more than a piss poor excuse for a County Attorney, simple as that.

Montgomery is a peice of Dirt.

He just let his Child Molesting Border Patrolling Date Chris Simcox off the hook for molesting his own Daughter, and her friends!!

Plea Barganing/Amnesty for Sick Worthless Child Molesters, but none for Good Hard Working un-documented Mothers and Fathers of pur own legal Citizen Children!!!!!

Fact: you are Worthless Racist Human Garbage Montgomery.

You are just another Arpaio Butt Weasel.

After living here for 30 years, I've come to the conclusion that it's the electorate that's an "endless parade of ass clowns." After all, they just keep electing their own kind.

And they seem to be getting worse, if that's possible.

@DNichols My guess your somewhere around the age of 12 yrs old, name calling and swearing seems to be your way of communicating with other's who have a difference of opinion then yours, I am sure in 6th grade they do not cover commerce but you should look at the stock market its up over 137% since your so-called great depression brought on by deporting illegal immigrants .The only businesses who have and continue to have financial difficulties are the ones who catered to the illegal immigrants.

@Suck 2;

Child Molesting Garbage like Montgomery's Pal Simcox Deserves a "Deal" involving Prison for Life!

Montgomery Persecutes Good Hard Working non criminal Mothers, and Fathers of legal Citizen Children that have a God Given/Human right to thier Parents.

The "Plea Deal" Montgomery has offered this Racist Minute Man Child Molester is "Amnesty." for the Sick Bastard PERIOD!

Out of curiosity.. why are you removing who you are replying to (the addressing) from all your replies?

Do you think people don't get notified?? 

Do you think that your being non-specific as to who you are replying to actually helps you??

You do realize that people still get notified of the responses right?

@WhoKnows @yourproductsucks2 By now it's pretty clear YPS doesn't know how to read court documents. He can't even tell the differance between petitioner vs respondent.

@yourproductsucks2 That's a point, not mine, but still, a point. Here's another: Simcox was denied bail. Who else is denied bail in this state? Murderers. Rapists. And an undocumented seamstress without a work permit! Drum roll please!. Justice is a joke in Maricopa Co. Cause Sheriff Joke likes to arrest the guppies and leave the big fish to themselves.

most plea agreements are better than the original charges...they are also offered in most cases, even molestation cases. sonic being offered a plea is not synonymous with letting him of the hook.
