Skip to comments.Arizona Sheriff: ‘Our Own Government Has Become Our Enemy’
Posted on 08/02/2010 6:55:58 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
Pinal County (Ariz.) Sheriff Paul Babeu, whose deputies patrol a county along the U.S.-Mexico border, is hopping mad at the federal government.
Babeu told CNSNews.com that rather than help law enforcement in Arizona stop the hundreds of thousands of people who come into the United States illegally, the federal government is targeting the state and its law enforcement personnel.
Whats very troubling is the fact that at a time when we in law enforcement and our state need help from the federal government, instead of sending help they put up billboard-size signs warning our citizens to stay out of the desert in my county because of dangerous drug and human smuggling and weapons and bandits and all these other things and then, behind that, they drag us into court with the ACLU, Babeu said.
The sheriff was referring to the law suits filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the U.S. Department of Justice challenging the states new immigration law.
So who has partnered with the ACLU? Babeu said in a telephone interview with CNSNews.com. Its the president and (Attorney General) Eric Holder himself. And thats simply outrageous.
Our own government has become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help, Babeu said.

If anyone in DC cared, that would leave a mark!
We live in amazing times...I really didn’t think Obama understood “true” Americans...and that we won’t tolerate government control over our lives.
I keep remembering the “...all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC...” part of my military oath.
Oh, how I envy the military policeman that gets to arrest the Obamaloon.
This is consistent with the modus operandi of ChicagoThugPolitics(TM).
TOO true!! It’s Arizona NOW, the rest of the states later!
So what would be the WH reaction to an arrest warrant issued by Arizona for Obama and Holder? The charge could be “aiding and abetting.”
You got that right... last I heard “O” was more concerned about getting $30,000 a head to attend his birthday bash... and people make fun of Paris Hilton for charging her “fans” so show up at her b’day parties.
And yet they want to send McCain back to DC. He is a staunch, decades-long active part of the very government that is attacking AZ. I just don’t get it.
Yo Babeu, try and do something about it and Obama WILL put roops on the border.... to control folks like you.
Until the Elites or their families are harmed by the illegal invasion, the “little people” should STFU and BOHICA.
Exactly right. My question to this character would be:
“So why do you want to re-elect McCain, ya jerk?”
It’s true, and I certainly hope the rest of the country recognizes that the government is ganging up on Arizona and trying to thwart us at every turn. Apparently they think it’s quite acceptable to sacrifice Americans in order to keep up their free flow of Mexican slaves and drugs.
An excellent description of the character of this administration.
The United States shall ... to every State ... protect each of them against Invasion...Even if the invaders don't have tanks and helicopter gunships, they're still invaders.
Slaves, drugs and prospective voters.
