Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio may be facing an onslaught of negative ads and out-of-state activists funded by leftist billionaire George Soros bent on his defeat, but it isn't stopping him from doing his job.
Sheriff Joe's deputies captured 11 illegal aliens and three U.S. citizens smuggling them into the country during a traffic stop - the kind that the Obama Administration and ACLU want to stop him from performing so illegals can go free. Two of the three smugglers were armed with semi-automatic weapons and have extensive criminal records, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said.
This brings Joe's three-day total to 28 illegals and smugglers - ALL of whom were headed for states other that Arizona.

The 11 Mexican nationals in the vehicle admitted to paying between $2,800 and $3,000 to be illegally smuggled into the U.S., sheriff's investigators said. Their destinations were Georgia, New York, North Carolina, New Jersey and Florida. The group admitted to crossing illegally into Arizona through Altar, MCSO said.
These patterns are typical. Arizona is the principal gateway for illegal entry into the U.S. Thanks to Arizona's tough immigration laws, 80% of illegals captured by Sheriff Joe and his deputies are headed for other states. And since Arpaio's department captures a staggering 25% of all illegals caught in the U.S. each year, Joe doesnt just keep illegal alien rapists, robbers, gangbangers and identity thieves out of Arizona he also keeps criminals from threatening cities and towns across America.
Which is exactly why the open-borders left wants him out of the way.
Help Sheriff Joe defeat George Soros and Obama now...
I’d like to know the names of those “citizen” traitors.
Please let them be naturalized, not born citizens, so they can be stripped of citizenship.
Way to GO Joe!
Thanks Sheriff Joe!
Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a real American hero trying to protect our border.
A shame that we have people in the GOP and claiming to be “conservative” that attack him for being tough on Illegal Aliens and Border Security. And a total shame that people like Michelle Malkin criticized him for investigating Obama Eligibility.
Does he have a protege? I mean, someone who will act as he does, says what he says, to continue his great work. So, just in case, you know, the unthinkable happens...I pray for Joe, but he’s not going to be around forever.
May God bless and protect Sheriff Joe Arpaio; great American patriot, great American hero. Psalms 91
Boy, they were going to be busy doing all that voting on November 6! So many polling places, so little time - welcome to "Smokey and the Bandit" 2012!
Well since they were leaving Arizona he should of just let them go.....then held a press conference to let Obama know where his illegal alien buddies were heading. ;)
Joe is showing it can be done! Why don’t we hear about other states rounding up illegals. He is a national treasure. This is the mindset of Newt and Sarah - there always was a difference when they were in charge. That’s why they will never be any longer - evil will not allow it and dumb downed clueless voters bow to evil.
They probably already had their absentee ballots for all five states.
LOL. And a PO Box to receive their EBT card.
"NOTHING is more important than protecting the vote
of foreigners and al Qaeda. We represent them, too."
Yeah, he really needs to be a mentor to his Deputies, so they can carry on his legacy. He’s going to have to pass the torch along at some point, and hopefully his Deputies will be there to fill his shoes.
Joe should arrest Soros for interference of the law.
Since ICE was told to ignore his calls, will anything be done?
One of the very few good things to come out of Massachusetts.
Sheriff Joe is about 80yrs old, so as tough as this guy is, he has another 20yrs left in him before he might retire.
Ending the birthright citizenship rule should be one of the first things that President Romney does when he gets into office.
Love it! That picture is the best and so true.
