Stand With Arizona
It's been a busy week for Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) deputies, as they have captured 49 illegal aliens being smuggled into the U.S. in multi-point sweeps across the region over the past 5 days, including 15 arrested this morning alone. And as in nearly 80% of such cases involving MCSO, most of the illegals were headed for states other than Arizona.
On Tuesday afternoon, sheriff's detectives were investigating two vehicles near Fountain Hills for human smuggling. The first vehicle contained 10 illegal aliens, including the coyote, which were heading to New York, Delaware, Louisiana, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Kentucky. Six were identified as Mexican nationals and three were from Guatemala.
The second vehicle contained 10 to 12 illegal aliens who all ran into the desert from sheriff's detectives. After a lengthy search of the area using air support and with the assistance of DPS, only three were found and arrested. This group was heading to Ohio.
On Saturday, MCSO detectives discovered a vehicle in Gila Bend which was being used to smuggle illegal aliens into the country. It was carrying six illegals and a coyote. While searching the vehicle, an AK-47 was located under the back seat. That same evening, detectives were investigating a drop house in Gila Bend and found nine more illegals. These groups admitted to crossing the border near Altar, Sonoyta and Sasabe.

Were any of them carrying Eric Holder’s business card?
Sheriff Joe PING.
Go Sheriff Joe! Holder hasn’t scared him a bit.
Good point! Joe should immediately check the Fast and Furious serial numbers to see if this one came courtesy of Steadman!
Sheriff Joe is nabbing ILLEGALS and Holder is soon to be indicted.
Can we write in Sheriff Joe?
Good for Joe!!
Would that all officals were this good at rounding up the trash from Mexico.
JIM WELLS COUNTY (Kiii News) -
Emergency crews rushed to the scene Thursday afternoon of a horrendous accident on Highway 44 in Jim Wells County.
Ten people in all where sent to area hospitals, five of those taken by Halo Flight to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital
(These were illegal aliens. On the 6 PM news, they said officials were chasing them when the wreck occured near Corpus Christi.
They said bodies were flying everywhere.)
Armed Aliens Ping!
here’s hoping that rifle is fast and furious vintage
Gotta love a man who will still uphold his duties & the rule of law in spite of the Feds.
Yet Big Sis Nappy still says the border is the safest it has ever been.
“But, but, but our borders are safer than ever, how could this be?”
It is definitely time to be rid of Obama and his entire crew. A “clean sweep, fore and aft” is what we need.
Then bring the lot before Capt’s Mast, then in the Brig for the maximum.
