Arizona's controversial Sheriff Arpaio set to endorse Rick Perry
msnbc.com ^ | November 26, 2011 | By From NBC's Carrie Dann

Posted on 11/26/2011 6:47:47 PM PST by moonshinner_09

NBC News has confirmed with a source familiar with the matter that Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, will endorse Rick Perry this week.

Arpaio will campaign with Perry in New Hampshire this week, the source said.

The Arizona sheriff is known as a vehement backer of tough immigration laws and was a vocal supporter of his own state's controversial enforcement laws.

Perry critics have described him as soft on immigration since the Florida debate, when he called opponents "heartless" for deriding his policy of in-state tuition for children of illegal immigrants in Texas. .

Face it, the illegal issue was just used to derail Perry.

Many of the same people who thought that ONE issue was enough to throw Perry under the bus, are now arguing that it doesn’t really matter now that it’s destroying “their” candidate Gingrich.

I say a pox on all their houses!

I stand with Cain!

Although I live in Michigan, I am on Sheriff Joe's mailing list. I was planning to send him $50, but I want to wait to see how this plays out.

He didn’t have to SAY anything.

I’d be willing to bet they have conferred for years about the Border problem.

It has to be sealed anyone with a brain knows that.

The choices 3 years ago were huckleberry/romney/mccain and the sheriff picked romney out of that weak class. Now, it is Perry or Gingrich and he chose Perry, I dont see a problem, what else could he do.

You might advise Washington about this. From same MSNBC.Along Mexican border, US ranchers say they live in fear
Despite government assurances that they’re safe, they say the level of violence is rising
FALFURRIAS, Texas — While walking along a dirt road bordering his property, a South Texas farmer complained about living in fear of Mexican traffickers smuggling drugs and illegal immigrants across his land. He would later ask his visitor not to reveal his identity, for his safety and that of his family.
“I’m a citizen of the United States. This is supposedly sovereign soil, but right now it’s anybody’s who happens to be crossing here,” he said. “I’m a little nervous being here right now. Definitely don’t come down here after dark.”

The farmer said a federal law enforcement agent told him to buy a bulletproof vest to use while working in his fields. Whenever he goes out to survey his agricultural operations, he always tells his office where he is headed, and he has purchased a high-powered rifle.

“One of the basic points of the federal government is to protect the people of this nation to secure the border, and they’re not doing that,” he complained.

Story: Cartels using Ariz. mountaintops to spy on cops
The Obama administration and many local officials have said the U.S.-Mexican border is safer than ever and that reports of violence on the American side are wildly exaggerated. But the farmer scoffed at that argument. “I walk this soil every day and have since I was old enough to come out on my own,” he said. “In this part of Texas, it is worse than it’s ever been.”

Moving families to safer ground
A report recently released by the Texas commissioner of agriculture said cross-border violence was escalating. “Fear and anxiety levels among Texas farmers and ranchers have grown enormously during the past two years,” the report said, adding that some “have even abandoned their livelihoods to move their families to safer ground.”
Further into story, Vickers said that since 2004, about 500 people, mostly illegal immigrants, have perished while on smuggling trips through private property in Brooks County, Texas, alone, where his ranch is located.

A war zone?
Todd Staples, the Texas agriculture commissioner and a candidate for lieutenant governor, argued that many leaders in Washington, D.C., continue to ignore the violence along the border. In a recent article he wrote, “A Webb County rancher checking his cattle is shot at and barely escapes with his life; the suspects are linked to drug cartels. Workers in a Hidalgo County sugarcane field are told by cartel members to stop harvesting the crop ‘or else,” because the sugarcane provides coverage for cartel coyotes smuggling drugs.”

Sheriff Joe’s endorsement carries a lot of weight. I guess he went with what
he thought was the pick of the litter. Perry’s stock should rise with this news.

Yes I know all of this. SO does Washington. Perry and AG Abbott have BOTH asked the FEDS to do their job.

Both have been ignored. The Dummies hate Perry. Can’t stand the thought of him closing that border. Where will they get their voters after all?

I don’t trust Perry on immigration any more than a child-molester in a schoolroom.However, I do not think he will sit still on border security.Since the candidates are proving so distressing I am inclined to hope that a deal was made and Joe gets DHS internal enforcement & Perry the border.With one caveat: My cheap labor bosses tell me that you get to kick out as many as possible until I can pass a “guest-worker amnesty scheme”....

“I wouldn’t be surprised if she endorsed Rick”

Agreed, and Arpaio’s endorsement is just the beginning of more endorsements to come in Perry’s rebound. And I agree that Arpaio’s endorsement also carries a lot of weight and Perry’s support will EXPLODE once Palin endorses him and campaigns for him.

Palin was probably Perry’s highest profile endorsement in his reelection campaign last year and she helped propel him over the top.

It’s time to takes a look at Rick Perry ... and rally around a winner.

Newt essentially dismissed Sarah as an airhead and dissed theTea Party. If she endorses anyone, it will be Rick.

Perry is a good guy, generally. Not perfect from the conservative point of view in dealing with illegals who have been left to cross the border in Texas, but he is an American-American man. Liberal-tarians, Rinos and leftists hate his guts.

All I said was that he’s Joe’s pick. If Sarah Palin confirms his choice, I think he wins Iowa.
To put it in Texan:
A good pup needs a lot of attention, then he either hunts or he doesn’t and I think Rick Perry can hunt.
