Sheriff Joe Arpaio is facing a campaign to recall him from office. They are collecting signatures, and already have more than half the required amount with two months to go. This follows a re-election campaign last year which saw unprecedented amounts spent on both sides, as George Soros committed $10 million to oust "America's Sheriff". Joe was forced to spend his entire 'war chest' of $8 million to (barely) hold onto office - the closest race of his career.
Why is the Left in America so focused on a single county's Sheriff, and willing to spend Congressional-level funds to defeat him?
Well for starters, Sheriff Joe is the biggest national symbol in the fight against illegal immigration. He has refused to back down from enforcing the immigration laws most law enforcement officials ignore, even in the face of attacks by race-baiting activists and lawsuits from the Obama Administration. His 'Tent City', pink underwear and cheap eats for inmates are legendary across America.
In addition, Sheriff Joe has taken a strong stand against Federal gun control - further angering the Left. Joe deployed his Posse to defend schools from would-be madmen like the one who targeted the kids in Newtown. He also said he would refuse to enforce any new gun-control laws from Washington - by far the largest county Sheriff to do so.
But perhaps the real reason Sheriff Joe is endlessly (and expensively) targeted is because he aggressively pursues a strategy that hits at the very heart of amnesty proponents. Arpaio systematically conducts workplace raids on companies discovered to have employees who gained employment by using fake or stolen IDs. Those illegal aliens who are arrested in his raids are typically charged with felonies. And any illegals who are convicted of or plea to a felony are put on the fast-track for deportation, or at the very least are barred from ever gaining citizenship or legal status under any version of "immigration reform" legislation. They are even barred from Obama's DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Understandably, this has enraged the Left.
The worksite raids began in 2008, after Arizona passed an employer-sanctions law meant to impose civil penalties on companies that knowingly hire undocumented workers. The Obama DOJ, La Raza and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce all challenged the law but Arizona prevailed in the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011. But starting in 2008, Sheriff Arpaio and the Maricopa County Attorney decided to use the new law to crack down on workers using false documents and charge them with identity theft. This strategy would ensure that a criminal record would keep illegal aliens from ever obtaining citizenship.
Arpaio has conducted 71 such workplace raids since 2008, arresting many hundreds of illegal alien identity thieves in the process. Workers are often charged with multiple counts of identity theft, typically a Class 4 felony, and offered plea bargains to a lower charge, such as taking the identity of another, a Class 6 violation. But even with such a conviction, they are typically guaranteed to be deported, and regardless, can never gain legal status in the U.S. under any current or proposed legislation.

Joe, you give the law abiding hope. This is supposed to be a nation of laws not men, now it is what political group you belong to or what race
In these inverted days, to enforce the law is to be a villain, when it comes to illegal mmigration.
But for gun law technical violations, they employ thousands to data-mine and sift and study their enemies (that’s us) with electron microscopes.
Sheriff Joe would make a good president or VP. Next time Palin decides to run with an Arizona politician, I hope she chooses someone like Joe instead of someone like John McCain. I love the idea of working around the federal refusal to enforce the law - permanently barring these criminals from any path to citizenship. I have no problem with legal immigration, but I despise the idea of favoring criminals over those who (like my ancestors) enter this country legally.
above the law
Sheriff Joe is awesome. However, his agenda doesn’t fit the agenda of Soros or other super-wealthy Middle-Eastern types who basically want illegals from especially Mexico coming here, further undermining our society, economy, religious foundations and leading us into slavery. The bottom-line agenda is to enslave the general populace.
not Joe he follows it and enforces it, so you must mean that other guy.
I mean the guy in the limo, he who must not be named
He’s had two or three names, so who knows ?
two are certain ... with two there has to be many more aliases
The left will hate me. I Love Sheriff Joe!
If every sheriff did this:
Illegal immigration: Solved.
But of course that's not the goal of the left. The goal of the left is to destroy the country.
“They are collecting signatures, and already have more than half the required amount with two months to go.”
Yes but how many signatures would they have if the didn’t count the illegals?
I LOVE SHERIFF JOE!!
For your Viewing pleasure........
I brought Sheriff Joe to Chicago a couple of years ago, Brilliant man!!
Please help Joe fight the Soros-funded recall campaign: http://www.joepac.org
George Soros paying to have Arpaio ousted? That explains why Soros has so much invested in Rubio, McCain, Graham, and other Amnesty Liberal GOP
I will call Sheriff Joe’s Office and see if this fundraising is LEGIT!
Other than people making money on his name.
