Sheriff Joe Raids GNC Nutrition: 21 Illegals Using Stolen IDs (Including Those of Dead Americans)

Stand With Arizona

He's known as "America's Toughest Sheriff". But Joe Arpaio continues to show he deserves the moniker of "America's JOBS Sheriff". Because every time Sheriff Joe conducts a raid, he frees up jobs for legal American workers.

Yesterday was no exception, as Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies raided the large General Nutrition Corporation (GNC) distribution warehouse in Phoenix. GNC is the dominant retailer of nutritional supplements in the U.S., with stores across the country.

MCSO's Jeff Sprong says the vitamin distribution business employed as many as 21 suspects using false identifications to secure employment. Two suspects were using social security numbers belonging to dead persons, Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.

About 30 MCSO deputies are involved in the operation. Arpaio says five people were arrested. One person was hiding in a women's bathroom, while another tried to hide under some type of equipment.  Someone familiar with the business tipped off the Sheriff's office last year about illegal immigrants using fake IDs.

"This is a big, big operation..over 1,100 stores on the west coast and Alaska and Hawaii..we're not done yet.  We have five in custody and will continue to look for the rest," Arpaio said.
MCSO officials have told SWA that all 5 workers arrested thus far were in fact illegal aliens. It was the sheriff's 59th such sweep. In the previous 58 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 and the federal government who may not like it,”  said the Sheriff.
See the video report here. Notice how the sniveling local reporter Mike Watkiss absurdly gives camera time to an illegal alien supporter who "sees nothing wrong" with illegals using the stolen identity of Americans - including those who are desceased. And of course he works in a mention of the absurd "racial profiling" lawsuit that was filed against Sheriff Joe.

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:

"America's Jobs Sheriff" is on it. Don't you wish your local Sheriff worked as hard to free up jobs in your city or town? If they are not, let them know you want our laws enforced, and illegal aliens taken off the job. (You can find their contact info HERE).

Way to go, Joe!

We should handle this like drug busts, seize and sell all equipment and assets in the operation. Would only take one or two employers having their business sold out from under them and they would all stop hiring Illegals.

Would be interesting to hear from the Social Security folks.

I assume most of the time (unless there is Chicago type fraud) when a person dies, their account is closed?

Then suddenly years later SS “payroll tax” contributions start coming in under that number.

No red flags?

Keeping American safe—something the POS in the WH won't do. In fact he is abetting criminals and should be charged with something.

“MCSO’s Jeff Sprong says the vitamin distribution business employed as many as 21 suspects using false identifications to secure employment. Two suspects were using social security numbers belonging to dead persons, Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.”

Somebody needs to raid a big white mansion in DC and arrest one of the occupants for using the social security number of a dead man.

Why would the government want to investigate money coming in?

Good news, but unless the employer is also arrested, he'll just replace these folks with other illegals. Arrest and prosecute a few employers and things will really change.

It is hard and politically dangerous for elected sheriffs to go after employers, though.

Most Credit Card companies can spot a stolen card in seconds and our bloated unconstitutional government cannot spot a bogus SS number?

Seems the government could shut down a major portion of the SS Department and pay the CC industry to do verification.

Thanks to criminal, unscrupulous employers, illegal aliens have also taken over the distribution and warehouse industries and driven down the wages in those industries too.

Even the top management/supervisors in these industries are many times also here illegally, as the greedy employers have to hire bilingual Spanish speaking supervisors to communicate with their low wage illegal alien workforces.
