Stand With Arizona

If the Supreme Court decides in favor of Arizona’s tough immigration bill, the Obama attorney arguing against S.B. 1070 predicted “mass incarceration” of "Latinos" - illegal aliens, in Arizona.

But Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said that would be "no problem" - he's got room for them in "Tent City".

“We lock up people all the time,” Arpaio said in a phone interview. “Since I started enforcement, we’ve arrested on the streets, investigated – in our jails over 51,000.

“I didn’t see any problem, other than the fact that some activists and politicians in Washington (don’t) like me enforcing the illegal immigration law,” Arpaio said.

“And by the way, if they think that it will overcrowd the jails, I’m not concerned. I got room in the tents. I got plenty of room...I’ll put more tents up,” Arpaio said. “So that should never be an excuse (that) you can’t house these people.”

Arpaio's department apprehends a staggering 25% of ALL illegal aliens captured in the entire United States each year. And since over 70% of those illegals were headed for states other than Arizona when caught, the Sheriff and his deputies protect all Americans with their operations - a good reason why cynical politicians who want those votes want Arpaio stopped. That is why George Soros-funded groups have pledged to spend $10 million to defeat Arpaio for re-election this year.

The Obama Administration is desperate to stop the landmark Arizona immigration law - and the states which have copied it. During oral arguments before the high court on the law – which allows state police to check the immigration status of individuals stopped, detained or arrested for other reasons – Solicitor General Donald Verrilli responded to Justice Antonin Scalia’s remarks that Arizona seems to be merely enacting laws that are already federal statutes.

“Well, what I think they are going to do in Arizona is something quite extraordinary, that has significant, real and practical foreign relations effects,” Verrilli said. Scalia then mocked Verilli, asking if "we have to enforce our laws in a manner that will please Mexico?”

Scalia gets it. So does Sheriff Joe. We have borders, and laws, for a reason. And no amount of political manipulation is going to sway men and women of character. They will enforce the law. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is one such man. After S.B. 1070 was passed in April 2010, over 100,000 illegal aliens fled Arizona, in large part because of the efforts of Arpaio and his many deputies.

And if the Supreme Court upholds 1070 in June, we may well see another 100,000 flee in short order.

For those who choose to stay, don't worry: there will always be plenty of room - and pink underwear - for you in Tent City.

Sheriff Joe is under attack by Obama, the Justice Department, and left-wing activists. Show you Stand With Joe by signing the petition HERE.

Prediction:

If Obama is reelected ,the left will try to bring charges of ‘Crimes against Humanity’ upon Joe Arpaio via the UN or some other progressive ‘instrument of justice’.

Duh, the obvious. The court isn’t the place to hash out issues of foreign policy. Those are issues for the political branches of government.

I don’t live in Arizona, so I cannot vote for Joe Arapaio, but if I did, Soros millions wouldn’t be worth a bucket of spit.

"we have to enforce our laws in a manner that will please Mexico?”

That would have been a good time for Scalia to point out that Mexico's immigration and voter ID laws are both tougher than ours.
