Joe Arpaio's 75th Workplace Raid: Three Employees of Home-Repair Company Arrested

For Sheriff Joe Arpaio's 75th workplace raid, deputies knocked over the Mesa headquarters of a company that repairs damaged homes.

The result: Three arrests.

-Joe Arpaio Arrests Four Cleaning Ladies in 74th Immigration Raid

Even with just three people arrested in this case, it still seems less pathetic than the four arrests in the 74th raid, of four cleaning ladies wearing matching lime-green uniforms in their mugshots.

Although several aspects of MCSO's anti-immigrant enforcement has been under scrutiny in the Melendres v. Arpaio case, that's not related to the workplace raids, which target the (overwhelmingly Latino) employees under state identity-theft and fraud laws.

One small thing we noticed is that the press releases used to brag that 100 percent of the hundreds of people rounded up in the workplace raids were found to be in the country illegally. Immigration status isn't mentioned in the latest MCSO press release, although it's kind of assumed at this point.

In this raid, MCSO deputies hit the headquarters of East Valley Disaster Services, which does home-restoration contracting. MCSO says deputies got information that "possibly 22" people got hired there with false documents. MCSO found that number to be more like seven, and three of these people actually were arrested.

"The company's owner has been very cooperative with Sheriff's investigators and assisted detectives during the arrests," MCSO's press release says. "Three suspects have been arrested and booked into the 4th Avenue Jail on charges of ID theft and Forgery."

Joe Arpaio is a narcissistic douchebag, a media whore and the 'leader' of a corrupt crime family.

Nothing more and nothing less.

If they ever enforced the law against hiring illegals, every hotel in Phoenix would have to close. And 80% of the restaurants too.

Three arrests, but they never report how many were legitimate. 6,000 ignored sex crimes, but he'd rather waste out tax payer dollars on three people that were probably profiled just for having Mexican accents.

I can't wait until Judge Snow bitch-slaps this senile old fool into compliance with his (Snow's) rulings.

The Old Fool will have NO CHOICE once Snow forcibly takes control of MCSO. And Snow has taken control of MCSO.

Or more concern for sick Pedifiles like Arpaio's Child Molesting Minute Man Buddy Chris Simcox who was granted an "Amnesty/Plea Deal" by Arpaios bought and paid for Stooge Bill Montgomery?!

@John; 

Does anyone here know why Arpaio's "Lap Doggy" Montgomery granted thier shared B.F.F. Child Molesting MInute Man Piece of Racist Garbage Chris Simcox an  "Amnesty/Plea Deal"?!!

Obviously Johnny here has no clue about the subject, just their delusions since they can't even get it right that Judge Snow is a he not a she.

Thanks for proving to everyone, simply by opening your mouth and speaking, just how much of a fool you are.

@Flyer9753 regurgitating the same crap is all you got other then insulting anyone who puts up a better argument, as far as the logons don't you think other's notice that the exact same people click on the like icon . the same 5 day in and day out I have noticed as soon as you comment 5 likes all of a sudden pop up seems kind of suspicious ya think.

@john043012 @Flyer9753 

oh wow. 2 whole days!!! 

means nothing troll, as the saying goes, the wheels of justice grind slowly, but they do grind. 

I have never said that in regards to this, Snow should have already bitch slapped Arpaio, nor have I suggested it.

Logons?? I have no other logons. Ask NT this, they have the server logs.

Your tidbit.. so? That's relevant to this discussion how? Oh that's right, it's not, just like most of your rants.

BTW - we should believe someone (you) who didn't even know Snow is a man, not a woman... why?? It's clear by your own posts that you have no idea about the facts of ANYTHING.

@Flyer9753 Well its been 48hrs since the raid and not a peep out of Snow .The way you and your other log on names suggest Snow should have (and I quote) bitched slapped Arpaio by now. What's up with that ? no big news flashes it seems like there is no media attention except we can always count on new times to inform us

@john043012 @MaskedMagician1967 Thats bullshit. Arpaio doesn't enforce these same laws against white college students in Tempe.  He ignores the violations of law the employers commit. That's not enforcing all the laws. He never has and never will.  Just ask his pals at Danny's Car Wash.

So you are a mind reader now? You know what MM knows, even though you state you don't when you say 'either do I'???

ROFL!!!! 

Since you admit you don't know, it's nothing but arrogance and stupidity to assume that no one else does.

John, Snow is a federal judge.

The Fetid Fool is using a STATE statute to pull off this bullshit. But it violates Snow's rulings and he will lay down the law on the sick old man we call asheriff.

Snow is in full control of Arpaio and MCSO. Get that straight.

@john043012 @MaskedMagician1967 

400+ Sex crimes uninvestigated

Deputies who steal lawyers private and privileged papers in court

Murder by MCSO deputies in the jails

Not a SINGLE employer busted under the employer sanctions laws - the feds had to come in and do that for him

over $100M embezzled

Violations of the 1st, 4th and 5th amendments in arresting the editors of the New Times

etc..etc...etc..

You are right, Joe is paid to enforce the laws... so why doesn't he enforce the laws?????

@MaskedMagician1967 your living in la la land, fraud is a felony in this country Snow does not have the authority to change the laws. If illegal immigrants are committing fraud Snow does not have the power to pick and chose what types of fraud the illegals would be exempt from.
