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.
He is an elected sheriff. he should go arrest federal employees and put them in jail. They should stay there till he gets his point across.
Hello Captain Obvious (or should that be Sheriff Obvious)
seriously this guy needs to run for president.
“to keep up their free flow of Mexican slaves and drugs.”
“and more welfare freeloaders beholden to the DemCrap Party”
There, fixed it.
The elites will have to worry about “the little people” before they worry about the illegals.
Hah! In past threads the sheriff was being called a rino because he supported McCain. Now he’s a hero. Confusing.
Arizona has TWO outstanding sheriffs with their heads screwed on straight.
Your question needs to be posed to the majority of the voters in AZ. They’re acting like abused wives. For years their husband has been beating them, but all of a sudden he starts sweet talking them, and saying all the words they long to hear. So they persuade themselves the abuse has ended and the husband has turned over a new leaf. Crazy.
question: What is preventing Arizona from allowing a volunteer armed work force from coming in and building a wall, and plugging the damn hole?
“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. “
Holder’s not really the problem. Obama is... It certainly would be interesting, I wonder how the Feds would react.
Nothing except “the politics” that such would generate.
Technically, Gov Brewer could declare “a state of invasion” right now, call up the AZ National Guard, and request assistance from the federal government. If the federal government either a) refuses to render assistance or b) actively interferes with AZ then it is in violation of Art 4 Sec 4 of the Constitution which REQUIRES the federal government to “protect each of them [the States] against Invasion.”
That’s why I call D.C. the District of Criminals.
“We have met the enemy and they will be ours.”
Babeu a hero? Not quite. He's absolutely right on this issue, but unfortunately has chosen to side with the enemy, "my friends."
so, when was the last time Obuma was in Arizona?
If he has the b#lls this sherrif should invite O to a cup of tea (in his jurisdiction) then slap the handcuffs on.
This is one of the most heartbreaking and true headlines posted in years.
We have an out of control oligarchy that is stealing from us through onerous taxation and holds the citizens hostage with millions of fiddling laws. We have a terrifying and unfair criminal justice system that forces us to comply rather than to face.
We have graft and extortion on many levels. We are locked in a system that needs to be frankly, cleansed of criminals and criminal misdoing.
The fact that Dodd and Frank are still walking around instead of waiting for a trial, and if they are found guilty, executed.
The fact that low and high level people betray our country without reprisal when trial and if guilty, execution is appropriate.
The fact that we do not have the will to confront these issues and the many other.
Historicaly there is only one thing that prevents the exesses of leadership, that is the knowledge that the leaders heads would be attached to the end of pikes.
We are rapidly reaching that crossroad.
Yes, well unfortunately the alternative, JD Hayworth, has been coming at the public with a deafening silence. McCain has spent millions promoting his lies, and no one has heard much from Hayworth. He kicked Juan’s @ss in the debate and I was hoping he’d follow that up with an ad campaign, but... ::::crickets chirping::::: And of course the media slobbers all over their Amigo Juan.
This is why this probably won’t get fixed with elections.
During the first years of existence, the Civil Liberties Bureau had a close relationship with the Communist Party,
Among the founders of the ACLU, or as it was originally called, the Civil Liberties Bureau, were Crystal Eastma
I gather Hayworth hasn’t been the ideal candidate. If I lived in AZ this would not matter. I’d vote against McCain regardless.
Both are the main cause for the corruption of Fannie Mae & Freddy Mac....it has been their sand pile for years and still is. Charlie Rangle is just as dirty as are many others in our government....think of the crooks in those bloated Bureaucracies and all the little political fiefdoms in Washington not to leave out the UNIONS of all those government workers, their pensions from their unions and their government jobs....thousands & thousands of them wasting the American taxpayer $$$$$.
The Tea Party movement is the first such conservative movement in many years.....Please TP folks, get the job done of cleaning house in November, 2010!
I am dead serious. That was her reasoning.
ACLU After the war in 1948, 12 members of the Communist Party were arrested for plotting to overthrow the government by use of violence. Flynn attempted to gain their release but in 1951 she was arrested in a “second wave” of arrests and charged with violation of the Alien Registration Act and sentenced to 5 years at Alderson Women’s Penitentiary.
During her sentence she wrote a book entitled The Alderson Story: My Life as a Political Prisoner (1955).
Soon after her release from prison in 1961, Flynn was elected National Chairman of the Communist Party in the USA. She made several trips to the Soviet Union where in 1964 during a visit she died. She was given a State Funeral in Red Square then returned to be buried with her subversive friends Eugene Dennis, Bill Haywood and the Haymarket Martyrs.
These are they types of people that we are dealing with. This is the type of beginning that the ACLU was given. This is why they have been focused on ending American traditions and changing the structure of our government as founded in 1789.
That is the EXACT type of ‘reasoning’ I heard from Obama voters prior to the ‘08 election. [One older Dem said he was voting for Obama because he liked the way O “carried” himself. Not making it up.] Every single one of these logic-challenged people has lived to regret their vote.
Why doesn’t Arizona start taking their detained illegals and releasing them in Northern VA, DC and South Maryland? Make the Problem real. If a senator or House member is fighting immigration enforcement then drop about 1000 illegals off in that person’s home town/district.
Costly to implement but I bet the people of Arizona would pass a tax measure to buy 100 or so buses and provide fuel without missing a beat. Have a statewide referendum to repeal “controversial law” and replace a safe movement clause to destinations to to be determined. It would be very cool.
while we sit back. watch and bitch about it while not doing a damn thing to stop it. Its past time some with a sane brain in Washington stood up and said enough is enough with more than words. Charge these people, arrest them before the new year and we start seeing civil unrest and the rule of the angry mob exerting itself.
You just know events are becoming critical when law enforcement officials start making statements like this.
Of course the Sheriff is stating the truth...
My advise to him would be to be very careful in the future.
