Arizona Daily Star ^

Posted on 12/20/2011 11:38:27 AM PST by SandRat

PHOENIX - The Homeland Security Department will use 50 immigration agents to screen jail inmates in Arizona's most populous county after it revoked the sheriff's authority to access its systems, the agency said Monday in a letter to U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl.

The Fed usurps State law.

All this is because sherriff Joe hasn't (and won't) let go of the birth certificate issue.

“You mean 50 ICE agents to let illegals go.”

Basically.

This administration is becoming surreal. It’s a good thing most American’s spend their time playing video games, watching cooking shows and reality TV, otherwise folks might end up outraged.

The local motels & restaurants will make some money off the costs of having those 50 agents in town.

The work is currently being done by 91 deputies. Feds want to replace with 50 agents. That’s ok. Set up a procedure where the illegals will be held until each is seen by an agent, interviewed in front of a deputy, and a disposition made by the ICE agent.

Have a local judge issue a holding order to stop local prosecution of any crimes until a resolution comes back from the ICE agents.

Now I’m thinking that will cause quite a back log but that is the way the cookie crumbles.

A lawsuit could jeopardize millions of dollars in federal funding for Maricopa County.


The feds want blood and will do anything to promote the RAT agenda for illegal voters.

Have they asked the Sheriff if he stopped beating his wife yet?

Enough warning shots and they're likely to start taking some return fire. My guess is that Sherriff Joe fires a few of his own and bites down even harder on the Birth Certificate investigation. Swat a hornet or two and eventually the whole nest comes your way.

The story appears to say the sheriff’s efforts are doomed because Arizona/Maricopa County was getting federal funding. This is why the ability for the Federal Govt. to take money from us, about 50% of the population, must be removed from the authority of evil individuals. This kind of matter really raises my hair. People keep talking government this and government that when it is all about people using government. If you have evil people there will always be evil government unless the people outside of the government make sure to minimize government like the Founders recognized and intended.

“Don’t get all uppity with states rights.”

No, the County Sheriff is the chief law enforcement of his county. From what I understand the Constitution says on the matter, Joe Arpaio has more law enforcement power in his county than do any federal officers. So, here’s hoping Sheriff Joe arrests all fifty of these guys and puts them in his lockup in the general population along with the illegals. Of all the real LEOs on the scene today, Sheriff Joe is the only one with the balls to do it. Maybe Sheriff Paul Babeau from neighboring Pinal County can come and assist.

The sheriff is a higher authority in his own state than the federal government, and their ouster of him for political reasons is all kinds of illegal. They must have physically overpowered or threatened him. He’s a top cop in Arizona, and they have no jurisdiction over him. Too bad he and his deputies didn’t fend them off, for it would be perfectly legal for them to do so.

And the sheriffs in our country are our last hope of taking it back again. Once the feds remove the strong, conservative sheriffs, all is lost. There goes the last “controlling legal authority.”

Perhaps the Sheriff can contact the Sheriff’s in Texas and have them get Homeland Security database access, then download a copy to Sheriff Arpaio. Why do other states allow the federal government to usurp their authority? Wake up state governors lets get some guts already!!

Don’t take your eyes off the prize boyz...This is a diversionary tactic to take the heat off F&F. Sheriff Joe can take care of himself. No one can usurp his authority in that County but the residents of Maricopa.

since this is “in custody” then the sherriff’s office has the right to have a deputy there during the interview to prevent any illegal action.

since when was a criminal database “secret” from locals?

could this be more fast and furious issues that the DOJ wants to cover up? iow: have the criminals who know too much removed from jail and ...

There is a story "out there" that a sheriff cited U.S. District Court decision (Case No. 2:96-cv-099-J (2006)) and announced that all federal officials are forbidden to enter his county without his prior approval.

Lots of Internet comments many saying that it's a hoax.

If so then of course this means that some dim-witted "it all counts toward 30" GS-12 in Washington, D.C. is the supreme master over all local matters.

So why even have local government? Let's just adopt the North Korean model. Obama Barack Il The Glorious Master and Father of All in This His Paradise.

” - - - engaged in a pattern and practice of civil rights and constitutional violations and discriminated against Latino inmates in its jails.”

Duh, a Latino illegal alien belongs in Arpaio’s jail until he can be quickly transported to the nearest border with a Latino Country.

BTW, is it legal for the Jack-boot heel of the Feds to crush local jails?

This is a serious misallocation of resources. They are going to tie-up 50 agents? On a fishing expedition? For how long?

We can’t even get Obama to keep a couple of hundred National Guard troops on the border, and he’s now sending 50 highly paid federal investigators to ‘interview’ Mexican’s to see if they were served dessert last night?

I simply cannot trust any ICE agent beholden to the current Administration—or the Mexican Govt. (you decide) IMO anyone working for Janet N. or Barry Soetoro is automatically suspicious and most probably anti-American. I find Sheriff Joe A. more credible than Anybody appointed by or loyal to this
present evil administration.

Wow, I wouldn't doubt it, and they revoked his access to federal databanks. Looks like Arpaio & Co. may have touched a raw nerve with the "Big Illegal" and his BC. This administration stinks out loud...I can't say this loud enough without using Caps. Time to dust off the 10th Amend. and get real serious with it.

Look for more bogus information when the final reports come in. These are GUBMINT employees being told what to do and what to report. The true story will not come out. And, do you think for one nanosecond the wetbacks will tell the truth? ICE is on a “Witch hunt” to get Sheriff Joe because he’s a thorn in their side.

I truly hope Joe has some good evidence that will HANG Buckwheat.

Well, I say, “ICE, ICE, BABY!”.

If Arpaio wants to, and the county/state agree, they can refuse federal money and take back control of their local operations. Might mean a tightening of the belt a little, and cutting down/out some entitlement programs, but well worth it to regain state control of the state.
