PHOENIX An Arizona sheriff facing huge compliance costs from a court ruling that found his office had racially profiled Latinos has demanded that the federal government fork over nearly $38 million, saying Washington is to blame for providing some of his deputies with faulty immigration enforcement training.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio sent a letter Thursday to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement demanding that Washington pick up nearly $30 million in compliance costs, $1.2 million in legal fees for defending the sheriff and more than $7 million in legal fees being sought by the lawyers who won the case.
"The federal government's failures (as set forth above) are the direct result of these expenditures," the sheriff wrote.
In late May, U.S. District Judge Murray Snow ruled Arpaio's office systematically singled out Latinos in its regular traffic and immigration patrols and that sheriff's deputies unreasonably prolonged the detentions of people who were pulled over. Arpaio disputes the finding and has appealed the decision.

Go for if Joe, you won’t win ... but go for it. Yet another thorn in Obama’s butt.
Joe will be lucky if he isn’t a target of a drone attack—He may have an “accident on the highway” or maybe heart problems! I put nothing past Obama and his thugs.

Neither do I and even some of the younger generation are starting to put 2 and 2 together. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out if you start tallying up the people that were either opponents and thorns in his backside or were witnesses with tales to tell that only died after he was elected. The idds are just to great if you look at them as a whole.
Kick 'em in the knee,
Rah!, Rah!, Ras!,
Kick 'em in the ...
Get ‘em, Joe. Make them pay, make them hurt, make them cry uncle!
Make the Feds pay...they do not pay...send a collection agency after them
Go Go Sherrif Joe
