COSTA MESA About 30 people protested outside a fundraiser for Orange County Sheriff candidate Bill Hunt on Saturday morning.
About 10 people with signs stood outside the entrance to the Triangle Square parking garage off Newport Boulevard in Costa Mesa. About 20 more people crowded around the entrance to Sutra Restaurant and Nightclub as Hunt supporters checked in for the event.
Protestors hold signs at the entrance to the parking garage at Triangle Square in Costa Mesa. People were protesting O.C. Sheriff candidate Bill Hunt, who is being endorsed by Arizona's Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. ELYSSE JAMES, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
The protest occurred because Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., is in town supporting Hunt's campaign. Others joined, they said, because of the Arizona law enacted yesterday ordering police to screen for illegal immigrants.
"The bill that passed in Arizona is frightening because it is racial profiling and will affect Latinos more than any other minority," said Yenny Talmo, of Santa Ana. "I believe we're all equal. I hope Hunt will not be sheriff."

Anybody here know Mr. Hunt?
“About 30 people”
Aka “thousands” by the MSM.
Anybody here know Mr. Hunt?
No, but if Joe Arpaio endorses him, that’s good enough for me.
There seem to be more supporters than protesters.
Good pics. We here in Calif need an Arizona-type initiative. This would send a rocketing message to Obama.
What the hell kind of "protest" is that? 10 people with signs and 20 people standing around hoping to get a glimpse of Arpaio. Geeesh. What a load this is.
Yes I do.
I think the folks holding the “boycott Arizona” signs are hysterical... Boycott Arizona, eh??? Then WHY ARE YOU THERE?
Did you notice the guy with the sign that said Europeans are the immigrants — standing next to two clearly WHITE CAUCASIAN men whose signs say “boycott Arizona” but yet they are standing IN Arizona (where did they buy their food today?). It’s actually kind of amusing since there are only a handful... At least their signs weren’t “professionally produced” like I saw at some of the other so-called “protests”.
Do you know Debbie Hunt?
Invaded Orange County needs a Sheriff Joe of its own to cull the herds.
They’re in Costa Mesa.
Hello, stranger. Long time no see...
“Anybody here know Mr. Hunt?”
If Sheriff Joe is supporting him that’s good enough for me!
In San Diego we have a candidate for Sheriff, Jay LaSuer that is endorsed by Sheriff Joe and Joe has offered to come over to help him set up his tent jail!!!
Maybe twenty people, it looks like...
Oh, duh! My bad... I was wondering why there was an “Orange County” in Arizona, too! LOL Must be time for bed! :)
