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 dont 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!

...and speaking of credit card numbers, can’t say I’d be all to comfortable handing over my plastic to someone who is here illegally and using stolen ID.
Doubt Barry’s regime will want to do anything against GNC, but as a consumer I know I plan to do (hint: it involves NEVER spending my hard earned money there).
make joe the head of ICE
Great idea. Imagine Putin sitting agross the table from Joe. Poor Putin. Instead Putin uses Obama as a wash rag.
“...51,000 illegal aliens.”
Dead American Social Security numbers are easily attainable off the Internet. I was shocked when I first saw the site while I was doing some genealogical research. Lots of them WWII vets. I wondered at my first viewing if anyone would be unethical enough to use them. Now we know.
In the early 80's, when I fled Pittsburgh for Texas, I seem to recall there was a lot of noise about GNC also relocating its corporate HQ out of town...to perhaps Atlanta. Anybody from the Burgh remember this?
It was around the time when the unions and the Democrat machine (Flaherty, Caliguiri and company) killed the steel industry. Several longtime corporate citizens were leaving around that time like Gulf and Rockwell. Even the iconic Quaker State Oil Company left the Quaker State and followed me to Texas! :-)
Forget about illegals in Arizona.
We need to send Arpaio to DC to arrest Baraq & WithHolder....
I love him like a brother.
Funny you should mention CC companies. Just this week I got a text alert, an email alert, AND a phone call from my bank regarding a suspicious transaction on my debit card. All of the notifications occurred literally within 5 minutes of each other and within 30 minutes of the actual transaction.
It was indeed fraudulent. The bank cancelled my card, and a new one was in my hands in 4 days.
The amount of the transaction?
That’s right, ONE dollar.
Never mind, I forgot who our governor is.
Newsflash, Joe Arpaio isn't Governor of Arizona.

DC is 3000+ miles away and can FOAD. Our Imperial Rome is bloated on our tax dollars with lots of construction cranes visible on the skyline unlike any other city USA
“Newsflash, Joe Arpaio isn’t Governor of Arizona.”
But NO ONE in Arizona jails him, as our governor would (likely) do here in Texas if a conservative stepped out of line on an issue so important to him (i.e., flooding the state with Illegals).
That’s why nothing happens...he OWNS them all.
I really don’t know, but thanks for the ping to the Sheriff Joe thread. I found it interesting that two of the illegals were using Social Security numbers from dead people. I wonder who taught them that?
Good for Joe.
While at the site, I clicked on another article and promptly blew a gasket.
“OUTRAGE: ICE and Border Patrol Leaders Expose the Border Chaos Resulting from Obama Amnesty Decree”
your comment is an EXCELLENT example of Joe’s real charge
you excuse lack of illegal law results because Perry is your governor.
Sheriff Joe was never governor in Arizona and while Joe was in fact Sheriff of Maricopa county, Janet Napilatano was governor twice.
I live here that combo was always stink on a skunk.
No...the law tasks sheriffs to enforce law.Joe does .Governors, nope.
Hard to believe - Sheriff Joe grew up in Massachusetts.
