MARICOPA COUNTY, Ariz. -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio isn’t happy with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Sheriff Arpaio said in a press release Friday that agents from ICE refused to take into custody two suspected illegal immigrants who were found in the desert this week.

On Thursday, MCSO deputies came across five suspected illegal immigrants while conducting a drug interdiction operation

Cant we round up illegals, have a judge approve the removal, and take them to the border with a kick in the ass?

Start charging them with murder for random unsolved murders. If they cannot provide ID or an alibi then that’s too bad. That fits the violent crimes exception Obama made up.

Catapult them back to Mexico. A relatively low cost solution:

They should leave US territory in good shape... How they arrive back home isn't any of my nevermind.

Sherrif Arpaio and his men need to round up, handcuff
and incarcerate all the ICE agents that wander through
his county on charges of dereliction of duty.

That is a fairly small trebouchet.

Good to see that people keep up with the classics.

O think in all seriousness that, as others have said, they should be bussed to DC and cut loose at the White House. And video every trip for You Tube. Then deduct the cost from the tax remittance states pay to the Fedgov.

Arpaio is under no obligation to release them in AZ.

It would add jobs too ;)

ICE Director Morton under fire for politicizing rule of law

In addition to suing Obama, King also mulled introducing a bill that would repeal everything Obama has signed into law

WASHINGTON – The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council and its affiliated local associations recently issued a letter announcing its unanimous 250-0 vote of no confidence in ICE Director John Morton and Assistant Director Phyllis Coven, claiming Department of Homeland Security leadership has little regard for the safety of Americans.

Calling ICE leadership’s policies, “misguided and reckless” the Council said ICE management has “abandoned the agency’s core mission of enforcing United States immigration laws and providing for public safety, and have instead directed their attention to campaigning for policies and programs related to amnesty.”

senator jeff sessions, r-alaUpon learning about an ICE agent, who has not been identified, receiving a “Notice of Proposed Suspension” for arresting a 35-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R- Ala., weighed in on the matter by sending a letter expressing “serious concern” to ICE Director John Morton.

Sessions noted the ICE agent arrested an individual he observed entering the vehicle of an alien wanted for criminal activity in Newark, Del.

Although the agent determined the individual was a 35-year-old illegal alien with 10 previous convictions for traffic violations, including driving without a license, a memorandum by Assistant Field Office Director David O’Neill stated the agent was told to release the detained alien even though he was in the country illegally.

When the agent refused, he was threatened with a three-day suspension.

Sessions wrote, “It is my understanding that the acting field director advised the criminal alien that he would be let go because he was not a ‘presidential priority.’”

“The actions that it appears were taken by your agency send a message to agents in the field that they will be punished for doing their duty and enforcing the law,” said Sessions. “Nothing could be more damaging to the rule of law or agent morale.”

Sessions stated, “According to a spokesperson for Newark Police Department, an American stopped on the same charges as the criminal alien would have been put in jail. Federal law enforcement should certainly not be giving illegal aliens more preferential treatment than is afforded American citizens.”

He stated, “Your agency’s apparent treatment of the criminal alien sends the troubling message that the demands of public safety are trumped by the desire for reduced deportations of those deemed ‘not presidential priorities.’”

put them in a truck and drive them to down town Burbank or San francisco

if ICE won’t take them out of the country... then it must be perfectly ok to drop them wherever you want

besides, I’m sure they’d love the free trip to California

ICE is only being their ineffective and malfeasance selves doing Obama's bidding.

I love this idea, we need to convince Joe it is a good idea.

I would love to see the news media try to explain why all these illegals are showing up on Barry’s front step all of a sudden.....

And I’m presuming that you can provide the code that a County Sheriff’s Office could use to that effect? This place sounds more like Jr. High every day.

I believe it is unlawful to transport illegal aliens across state lines. The only solution is south. Altitude and velocity are negotiable.

Border states should start putting illegals back over the border. They could charge other states to ship their illegals to them for processing and deportation. Screw the feds.

Ah but that’s the beauty of it my good Chef!

Arpaio cannot KNOW they are illegal as ICE refuses to make the determination!

At what point is our Federal Government no longer a legitimate authority? At what point does it need to be replaced?
I think that every day, more and more people are waiting for the next Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, and George Washington. I have one life, little fortune and my sacred honor has often been questioned, but I’m about ready to risk them all.
Laws are ignored or even worse, broken by those that are sworn to enforce them.
I have no respect for the law, just a very real fear that it will be used against me in an arbitrary and capicious fashion.

Hmmm. Just taking them to the main office to verify status... I suppose that could work.

I also like the airburst thing...

You don’t suppose that the Obama Border Agents Mexico (OBAMs) are collecting their pay without working do you?

If so, that means that the OBAMs have dropped out of the Work Force in America to join the 42 % of worker-age Americans who do not work.

He TRIED to have verification in AZ but was refused. Obama’s “Law” says he cannot hold them. So if he does not KNOW if they are illegal or not, he HAS to verify status before releasing the, does he not?

I honestly do not know why they have not done this. It would make the Dems look like bigger idiots than they are and get the conversation rolling nationally.

In the old Soviet union, they had a joke that went something like:

"How are you?"
"Better"
"Better than what?"
"Better than tommorow.. worse than yesterday"

I expect things will get worse before they get better. Best to study up on surviving or overthrowing a brutal dictatorship. The 20th century offers many historical examples.

My other favorite Soviet era joke?: You can get used to anything, even hanging, if you hang long enough.

If the Feds wont take the Illegal Aliens....then MCSD and Sherrif Arpaio should stop assisting the Feds on any of their busts...refuse to house Fed arrests and those in transit...and dump the Illegal Aliens on Federal property (how about the big bombing range south of Phoenix) after their local incarceration is done

I’d separate the anti-Sinaloa aligned gang members, remind them how Obama supplied their rivals with arms of all sorts, and then ship them to DC and drop them off in front of the White House and let Obama deal with them...

It’s cold, admittedly. . . but they are, by definition, felons, and if fleeing, deadly force has always been allowable. . .

First the Sheriff should dig a humongous trench about 20' deep. Then he should announce that due to the high number of suicides among illegals, and the lack of any way to find out who next of kin are, the trench will be used for sanitary/\safety reasons...

Ice might not start doing it's job but you can be sure that it gets a LOT of attention about how the government is unwilling to do its job.

Sheriff Joe should try outsourcing. Hire a company in a very remote part of India to take all the illegals he catches. Once they serve their time, it’s up to the illegal to make it back home. I’ll bet this operation can be funded solely on donations. I also think that once the word is out, the border crossings would get very sparse.

It is time for Arizona to bite the bullet and bus the illegals to somewhere in southern Mexico.It is time for Arizona to assert some fragment of state sovereignty and do it.

AZ should build a fenced area on the border. Chain gang all illegals for 2 years to build roads then place them in that fenced area where they can return to Mexico. Those not from Mexico can go there and ask the Mexicans to return them home. Mexico owes use that since we are hosting 10% of their population.
