Sheriff Joe Raids Vitamin Company Arrests 31 Illegal Aliens Using Stolen IDs

Stand With Arizona

He's known as "America's Toughest Sheriff". But we think he should be called "America's Jobs Sheriff".

Because every time Sheriff Joe Arpaio conducts a raid, he frees up jobs for legal American workers.

Thursday was no exception, as the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office served search warrants at a Phoenix-based vitamin company and arrested 31 illegal aliens working there. Based on a tip, deputies conducted a 5-month investigation of 21st Century Healthcare in Tempe.

Deputies were looking for 34 employees at the vitamin warehouse presumed to have used stolen identification to gain employment with the company. The company operates out of three buildings, all of which were searched. Some of the workers tried to run when they saw deputies arrive at the business.

"The suspects went up to the rafters. They went up to the roof. So, evidently, they believed they had an escape plan, but it didn't work. We surrounded the building," Arpaio said.
It was the sheriff's 58th crime sweep. In the previous 57 employer sanctions/identity theft operations, 100% of all suspects found to be committing identity theft to gain employment were illegal aliens. The Maricopa County Sheriff ’s office has investigated, arrested on the streets and in the jails over 51,000 illegal aliens.
"Illegal aliens are stealing identities of U.S. citizens to gain employment which escalates our unemployment problems. I don’t believe we should tolerate this. Furthermore, I will continue to enforce all federal and state illegal immigration laws in the business sector through human smuggling and crime suppression operations, despite activists, some elected officials and the federal government who have concerns regarding our operations,” said the Sheriff.
Arpaio stresses that one of the benefits of these employer sanctions/identity theft operations is that they open up job opportunities for legal citizens.

For critics who insist that illegal aliens only take the jobs that Americans refuse to do, we remind them of the example in the news report below, where legal workers of all ages and backgrounds lined up for jobs at three Phoenix-area restaurants, after a major Arpaio raid removed 200 workers there:

Joe makes it easy to understand why “immigration advocates” and voter registration maggots from the DNC hate his guts. They hate anyone who dares to do the job they are elected/hired to do.

5 month investigations COST MONEY.

A raid COSTS MONEY.

Jailing them COSTS MONEY.

Seize ALL their assents —sell EVERYTHING and IMPRISON the criminal owners.

I've observed that employers always require a copy of their workers' social security cards, no matter how obviously fake they may be, so they can have deniability in the even of a raid. So much for the excuse of illegal aliens being "otherwise law-abiding!"

I wonder if there is some legal reason why they don’t name the company.

“I wonder if there is some legal reason why they don’t name the company.”

From the article: “Based on a tip, deputies conducted a 5-month investigation of 21st Century Healthcare in Tempe.”

What a sound business plan!/s/

In cases like this with so many illegals, they know what they are doing. They think they are above the law because abetting the invasion is politically correct. The workers are often abused because they have no one to go to for protection. It’s sick.

Sheriff Joe's done it again!
Stepped himself up to the plate
Showed the perps the exit gate
Sheriff Joe's done it again!

Grandma's at home in her rockin' chair
By the TV watching news on the air
She jerks the beard of Grandpa's chin
"Sheriff Joe's done it agin!"

Her puppy dog barked at the pussycat
How did Joe look from where YOU sat?
Well, he twirled like a cyclone raiding the den
Adios to thirty-one men
Sheriff Joe's done it again!
Sheriff Joe's done it again!

The current owners are in the vitamin business, which has anywhere from a 300-600% markup. They don’t need to hire illegals to make a lot of money. This was just plain greed on their behalf, pure and simple. The law in AZ states that if you have 20% or more illegals working for you, you lose your business lic.

Man pleads guilty to Arpaio death threats
by Clayton Klapper/KTAR
March 14th, 2012

Adam Eugene Cox, 33, pleaded guilty Tuesday to threatening to kill Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his family.

Cox was originally arrested on January 27 as the main suspect in an Arpaio death threat investigation that began on the Internet.

Cox’s threats read, in part: “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this. He won’t f**k with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.”

Cox’s postings indicated that he is an avid President Obama supporter, and that Apraio’s investigation into the legitimacy of Obama’s birth certificate may be behind his threat to kill the sheriff. Cox’s mother confirmed with police that he is an avid President Obama supporter.

Deputies in Knoxville, Tennessee worked with Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies to serve a search warrant and seize a computer and other evidence from the home of Cox.

“Every threat will be taken seriously, and the sheriff knows that his position often attracts threats but he draws the line when his family is threatened,” said Deputy Chief David Trombi, whose detectives have overseen the threat investigations against Arpaio.

Mind you, this happened in Arizona.
