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?

Good point! Joe should immediately check the Fast and Furious serial numbers to see if this one came courtesy of Steadman!

In addition to the MCSO bust of UDAs over in Pinal County in the town of Casa Grande, four UDAs were killed when the Dodge Durango they were riding in crashed in to a fence. Four dead, seven injured. The Durango and another car were being chased along Chui Chu Road at speeds reported to be in excess of 100mph when the Durango missed the curve, plowed into a chain link fence and came to rest in an elderly woman's yard. Four dead, seven injured.
Just another day in southern Arizona, just up the road from the border that is the safest it have been in hundreds and thousands of years. At least according to Big Jan and the President.

“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.
