It is also a warning shot across the bow to Texas, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.
Don’t get all uppity with states rights.
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.
I wish we were in the middle of the debates where Perry could bring this to light and Newt and Santorum would pound on it.
“Dont 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.
