Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Press Conference Statements From 12/15/11
Maricopa County ^ | December 15, 2011 | Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Posted on 12/16/2011 6:37:51 PM PST by Texas Fossil

NEWS RELEASE

Sheriff’s Response to DOJ Letter

December 15, 2011

(Maricopa County, AZ) The following statements were made by Sheriff Joe Arpaio during a press conference held on 12/15/11 in response to the 22 page Department of Justice letter received 1 hour prior to DOJ press conference.

“Before we get started today, I want to say something to the citizens of Arizona and the rest of the nation.

On the surface, it may appear that today’s findings and actions by our federal government are directed towards this Sheriff and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. The truth of the matter is that this is a sad day for America as a whole.

Today, the federal government moved to do everything it can to put this agency out of the illegal immigration enforcement business.

We are proud of the work we have done to fight illegal immigration. We have been responsible for finding and identifying 25% of the nation’s illegal alien criminal offenders through the 287G program. Sadly, much of that work will no longer be permitted by the Obama administration.

Today the federal government cancelled our 287 G agreement. What that means is that we are no longer able to verify the immigration status of any criminal offender brought into our jails. This was a program responsible for detecting over 44,000 illegal alien criminal offenders since 2007, many of whom we can assume were deported by ICE officials back to their country of origin.

Now with the cancellation of this agreement, illegal criminal offenders arrested and brought into my jails will go undetected and ultimately dumped back onto a street near you. For that, you can thank your federal government.

By their actions today, President Obama and his band of merry men might as well erect their very own pink neon sign at the Arizona-Mexico border saying Welcome All Illegals to your United States.... Our home is your home.

On Sept 28, 2011, President Obama was questioned at the White House, by Hispanic journalist and asked why there was no resolution in the civil rights investigation against me for allegedly racially profiling Hispanics. He stated that he had to be careful to comment on individual cases handled by the DOJ. The president stated he challenged the AZ Law (1070) that was supported by me, because he thought there was a great danger of naturalized citizens with Latino surnames could potentially be vulnerable to questioning.

It is interesting that after 100 days in Office by President Obama, that the Democrat Chairmen of the judiciary Committee in Congress initiated this investigation.

After all this time, the head of the DOJ Civil Rights Division, who reports to Attorney General Holder, held a press conference December 15, 2011, which is 2 days after the Supreme Court agreed to accept the 1070 lawsuit.

It’s also interesting that Perez came to Phoenix for the press conference on the anniversary of the brave border patrol agent Brian Terry’s death, who was killed because of the failed Justice department’s “Fast and Furious” case, which is presently holding hearings this week on Attorney General Eric Holder.

Just this week, 2 Democrat Latino US Congress men from Arizona, joined by several other Latino Legislatures want me to resign my office. All of these same Democratic elected officials, throughout the years, have been criticizing my enforcement of State and Federal Illegal immigration laws.

Candidates for President of the United States - Herman Cain and Michelle Bachmann recently visited me in my office, Texas Governor Rick Perry and Mitt Romney also called me – all interested in my successful enforcement of illegal immigration and asked for my endorsement

Recently in New Hampshire, I endorsed Texas Governor Rick Perry for President of the United States. It should be noted that all this political activity made national news.

The Justice Department takes issues with our policies in the jails - it should be noted, the US Marshall Office, under the Department of Justice, gave my Office high marks. In the past when we did a crime suppression operation in Guadalupe, high homeland security officials were present and praised us for my operations stating we performed in a professional manner, even though this operation caused some controversy in that town.

We have a civil rights racial profiling case brought by the ACLU, which will be before a federal judge with oral argument on summary judgment next week. Is the DOJ press conference, among other reasons, geared to poison the court against our position in this civil rights case?” states Sheriff Arpaio

I'm to the point at which I feel the split in the country is so large that I don't see any way to put it back together. Everything this administration has done and wants to do is about vengeance and payback - for transgressions that weren't committed by the people against whom they seek vengeance.

The willingness of so many of the left to destroy - virtually or literally - those of us who believe differently them is profound and palpable.

I have a friend who I've known almost all of my adult life, and I can't really stand to talk to him anymore because of his support of Obama. If I could swing it at this point I would live out the rest of my life as far away as possible from this society.

We have not seen the U.S. Federal Government so out of Constitutional control and corrupt since the Civil War.

That time, after the Civil War, forced many of my ancestors to go GTT (Gone to Texas). Others were already here.

The hatred of that oppression was so bad it took 150 years to skim over. And only then when the Dem party turned Pure Commie Red.

I am glad I live in the middle of the Big Nothing. I pray daily that what I fear for the future of the nation will not happen.

God Bless the United States of America and God Bless Texas.

Psalm 119:89 ~ “Forever, O Lord, thy word is firmly fixed in the heavens.”

Psalm 37

1 Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm.

9 For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the LORD,
They shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plots against the just,
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
13 The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn the sword
And have bent their bow,
To cast down the poor and needy,
To slay those who are of upright conduct.
15 Their sword shall enter their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man has
Is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
But the LORD upholds the righteous.

18 The LORD knows the days of the upright,
And their inheritance shall be forever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,
And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish;
And the enemies of the LORD,
Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.
Into smoke they shall vanish away.

21 The wicked borrows and does not repay,
But the righteous shows mercy and gives.
22 For those blessed by Him shall inherit the earth,
But those cursed by Him shall be cut off.

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD,
And He delights in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the LORD upholds him with His hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old;
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,
Nor his descendants begging bread.
26 He is ever merciful, and lends;
And his descendants are blessed.

27 Depart from evil, and do good;
And dwell forevermore.
28 For the LORD loves justice,
And does not forsake His saints;
They are preserved forever,
But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land,
And dwell in it forever.

30 The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom,
And his tongue talks of justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
None of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked watches the righteous,
And seeks to slay him.
33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand,
Nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait on the LORD,
And keep His way,
And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power,
And spreading himself like a native green tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright;
For the future of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together;
The future of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the LORD shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him.

1984 indeed.

DOJ is trying like a cat scratching to cover it’s crap to hide what they have done. It is coming undone.

Once this is out in the open, it is like opening a can of worms. Once they are out of the can, you can never get them back in the same size can again.

FUEH! FUBO!

Remember November 2012 is coming.

Amen! .....Praise God Almighty!

It IS men like Joe Arpaio that we need in leadership...to make the tough and critical choices that no one else seems to have the courage to make concerning our nation’s security.

IMO, he deserves nothing BUT praise for his efforts AND successes in all that he does and has done to at least quell the problem of illegal immigration. God Bless him, his family, and all those who also work tirelessly along with him to protect and preserve our country.

i lived in a liberal blue-state area a few years and, being a native Texan, i couldn't WAIT to come back home. When i did, i wrote "G.T.T." on a piece of paper and taped it to my office door. My gawsh, that felt good. I don't even know if they knew what it meant. Didn't care, either. It was just something i felt compelled to do at the time. lol!

Outsiders simply do not understand. But that is OK, it will probably keep them away. hee hee hee

Now, Okies understand. Put away football (I don’t watch sports at all) and we have a great deal in common.

Remember when the CW happened and TX joined the Confederacy, Sam Houston refused to go along. He was so unpopular for that stance that he left TX and went to live with the Indians in OK. (he married one of them from what I read, he was married several times).

Since AZ’s former gov, Janet Napolitano, went to DC for “homeland security” (boy is THAT ever a misnomer!), she has had it in for Sherriff Joe and they have gone after him day and night for 3 solid years. ALL because he has been EFFECTIVE in rounding up illegals and shutting down businesses that hire illegals. HE is doing his job in enforcng our laws - IT’S A CRIME THAT OUR JUSTICE DEPT WON’T DO THEIRS!
Please vote against OBUMMER in 2012 - GO NEWT!

If Perry will put him in that position...

Sheriff Arpaio put his support behind Perry a month or so ago. Perry needs to win, before he can make any appointments.

While some have questioned Perry's determination on the immigration issue, this Sheriff should be a good indication of Perry's stance.

If one of the split pieces is destroyed, there is no split.

We must make efforts to assure we are on the retained piece. We must destroy the other piece. If we do not take aggressive action as has the good sheriff, we are doomed

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The Florida 2000 election recount did it for me. I have nearly completely eliminated my contact with Democrats. ( We should call them what they are: Marxists!) They are too evil or too stupid to be a friend.

Also...Recently, Government K-12 teachers are on that list. These people are deliberately and willing supporting, upholding, and establishing a godless socialist entitlement that corrupts the heart and minds of the next generation of voters. They, too, are too stupid or too evil to be a friend. And...For those Christians and conservatives who continue to work in these government, godless, and socialist schools are Useful Idiots, in my opinion. Christians and conservatives should instead be working on shutting these godless schools down and rescuing kids.

NOPE.

Not at all like that. Read it for yourself.

@ Pegita;

Perfect psalm for these times.

I hope the sheriff can see this thread. Our country need men like him, like so many oppressed by these power hungry usurpers of righteousness.

They have been been bastardized by weak kneed haters with no sense of morality save their new found old hat "social justice. The evil and hatred is so pervasive it is like a dark cloud has descended upon our land.

The Lord watches Israel daily, but we must all pray that He will fight for we the peole who stand by His laws that can be torn off our walls but His Word remains forever, that His justice will rain down upon those that spew hatred like the five cities around Sodom or the days of Hezekiah when he placed the written words of the arrogance of the Syrians before the Lord and He slew well over 100,000 saving Israel for a season.

We need His power, His righteousness, we need His love, we need to pray harder than Hezekiah, harder than Daniel that this evil is tossed into the seas and righteousness can again rise from the oppressive state in which a few greedy with power have done in their hatred and ignorance.

Again I say amen to Psalm 37, again tears seep as we await the mighty roar of the lamb, beware the wrath of the Lamb:

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;

Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,

Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.

8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;

Do not fret—it only causes harm.

Thanks Texas Fossil.

"Today, the federal government moved to do everything it can to put this agency out of the illegal immigration enforcement business. We are proud of the work we have done to fight illegal immigration. We have been responsible for finding and identifying 25% of the nation's illegal alien criminal offenders through the 287G program. Sadly, much of that work will no longer be permitted by the Obama administration. Today the federal government cancelled our 287 G agreement. What that means is that we are no longer able to verify the immigration status of any criminal offender brought into our jails."
