Here we go. Get ready for anyone who so much as looks cross eyed an illegal alien (new Democratic voter) to be charged with a "hate crime".

So the same Justice Department that couldn’t find an ounce of energy to investigate and prosecute cities and other entities that declared themselves to be ‘sanctuary entities’, circumventing the laws of our nation, now has time to investigate a sheriff who is executing his duty under the law.

Respect for our government deteriorates further with each and every day. It has become an enemy of the people.

Maricopa County has its very own immigration laws for its’ Sheriff to enforce? I don’t think that’s quite Constitutional.

Where does the Constitution provide for a federal citizenship? (It’s actually STATE citizenship that you get.)

I would bet our new Secretary of Homeland Security (Janet Napolitano) has her fingers in this. They never got along when she was Governor. She is pro-open borders. Also, County Supervisor, Mary Rose Wilcox (a raving pro-illegal B%#$h) is in DC complaining about the Sheriff.

Wow. Just perused that document. WT....is going on in this country? The emphasis on the “benefits of globalization” are a huge red flag. Any mention of the importance of America's national sovereignty?

You are right. Our government is the enemy of liberty and of life. Our government is evil to the core. As far as I am concerned, the next round of naziiism in this world has been born right here in the USA, and it is going to be dangerous as Hell.

Arpaio should investigate the investigators for aiding and abetting illegal aliens.

It's a crime, you know.

Per the article, Sheriff Joe is responsible for identifying 33% of the incarcerated illegals IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY.

Great job Joe!

I think you may be confusing residsency and citizenship. States define residency but citizenship is national.

Chris, you may be right about the nationalizations. It remains to be seen what will actually take place, but I grant you it doesn’t look good.

A few years ago the AZ lege passed legislation to give local law enforcement more power to go after the human smugglers/coyotes.

The Maricopa County Attorney, Andrew Thomas, interpreted the new law to mean that if an an illegal pays the coyote to smuggle him in, then the illegal has entered into a conspiracy with the coyote to smuggle illegals. And this is the basis of Sheriff Joe's arresting the illegals.

Maricopa County is the only county in AZ and in the US doing this.
