    by John HillStand With ArizonaWebsite | Facebook | Twitter 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?Why is the Left in America so focused on a single county's...
  • Feds cut ties with Arizona agencies, won't assist in many illegal immigrant calls (IMPEACH OBAMA!)

    The Department of Homeland Security has announced changes to its relationship with Arizona’s local law enforcement following Monday's Supreme Court ruling. Just hours after the Supreme Court released its decision on SB1070, the Obama Administration made a big move by ending existing agreements with Arizona police agencies. DHS officials will no longer respond to the scene of a state or local traffic stop when those agencies request help enforcing immigration law. They will respond over the phone to help verify someone's immigration status, but they will not go to the scene unless the person is a convicted criminal, has previously...

    by John HillStand With Arizona It's been a busy week for Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) deputies, as they have captured 49 illegal aliens being smuggled into the U.S. in multi-point sweeps across the region over the past 5 days, including 15 arrested this morning alone. And as in nearly 80% of such cases involving MCSO, most of the illegals were headed for states other than Arizona. On Tuesday afternoon, sheriff's detectives were investigating two vehicles near Fountain Hills for human smuggling. The first vehicle contained 10 illegal aliens, including the coyote, which were heading...

    Supreme Court justices took a dim view of the Obama administration’s claim that it can stop Arizona from enforcing immigration laws, telling government lawyers during oral argument Wednesday that the state appears to want to push federal officials, not conflict with them.The court was hearing arguments on Arizona’s immigration crackdown law, which requires police to check the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally, and would also write new state penalties for illegal immigrants who try to apply for jobs.The Obama administration has sued, arguing that those provisions conflict with the federal government’s role in setting...

    Immigration: In an unusual move, Arizona's immigration law comes before the Supreme Court before its adjudication by lower courts. Will the high court let states protect their borders by enforcing federal laws the feds won't? The federal challenge to Arizona's SB 1070, the state law designed to help stem the flow of illegal aliens, is headed to an unexpectedly earlier resolution as the Supreme Court has expedited its review and begins hearing oral arguments on Wednesday. This can't be good news for an administration at war with both Arizona and the courts and already fearful that its landmark legislation, ObamaCare,...

    by John HillStand With ArizonaWhile Washington, D.C. has no answers to deal with record unemployment or illegal immigration, the "Sheriff Joe Jobs Program" continues apace. Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Arpaio executed his 55th workplace raid at a Phoenix printing plant - Prisma Graphic. The Sheriff's Office received two separate tips that 17 of the employees were illegal aliens who used false or stolen identification to get their jobs. Stunningly, some of those employees were seen printing out Wells Fargo credit-card information, government hunting tags and Health Net information in secure areas of the printing plant - giving them potential access...

    by John HillStand With Arizona For months, America has been told by left-wing non-profits like the Alien Criminals Liberation Union (ACLU), La Raza and LULAC, that Alabama's new immigration law H.B. 56, "targets Hispanics" and is "anti-Latino". Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn wisely ignored that rhetoric when she let stand (pending trial) the law's most critical section - having police check immigration status of individuals apprehended in a lawful stop or arrest. Well, the very first such arrest has now occurred since the Judge's ruling. And - surprise, he is not from Mexico, or any other Latino American nation. He...

    by John HillStand With ArizonaHow significant was Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn's ruling upholding key sections of Alabama's H.B. 56 immigration law? Well, just ask the New York Times, which flipped out over it in their lead editorial: A federal judge has upheld most of Alabama’s new immigration law, the nation’s harshest and most radical attempt to harness a state’s power to find and punish illegal immigrants. The consequences for Alabamans will be serious — not just for the undocumented, but for their blameless citizen children, for those who are mistaken for unauthorized immigrants and for farmers and other business owners...

    An illegal alien previously deported in 2000, used a fake ID to gain entrance to the Palo Verde nuclear plant - the largest in the nation - for several hours before plant security, who grew suspicious of the ID, contacted Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office who determined it was a fake, and arrested Cruz Loya Alavares, currently held without bail pending charges of criminal trespassing...(Video above) Sheriff Joe said "I would presume the Feds would be concerned about this". We would certainly hope so, for many reasons. As was reported last year, an Iranian book celebrating suicide bombers was found in...

    mmigration: As the President gives an amnesty speech near a hotbed of Mexican drug violence, Arizona's governor takes her case to the Supreme Court and will use prison labor and online donations to build a border fence. President Obama flew into the border city of El Paso Tuesday, no doubt over the wildfires that have plagued the politically red state and whose disaster he has chosen to virtually ignore. He may have also passed the El Paso City Hall, which last summer became a war zone as gunfire from the Mexican side pockmarked the building. He was there to tout...

    Illegal Immigration: Lawmakers in 14 states are joining to restore the intended meaning of the 14th Amendment: that being a U.S. citizen requires more than just your mother sneaking past the Border Patrol. The architect of Arizona's immigration law, SB2070, announced Tuesday a new crusade to correct what he perceives as an unfortunate misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment that allows children of illegal immigrant parents to be considered U.S. citizens if they're born on U.S. soil. "This is a battle of epic proportions," Mesa Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce said. "We've allowed the hijacking of the 14th Amendment." He says...

    It's bad enough that the government of the United States is actually suing one of those united states. But to hand 11 foreign governments the baseball bat so they too can take a whack at the piñata that is Arizona? Well, that's just bad form. (We aren't even filled with delicious candy!) Thankfully, Gov. Jan Brewer is fighting back... {snip} Like Israel, Arizona's attempt to control its borders has made her an international pariah state. While their close ally Hugo Chavez cuts weapons deals with Iran, Ecuador and Bolivia are upset about Arizona enforcing pre-existing federal law. While Nicaragua and...

    Our prayers this morning are with Sue Krentz (widow of rancher Robert Krentz) who was hit by a drunk driver while leaving church last night. Her husband was murdered in March by an illegal alien on his border ranch - a major impetus for SB1070's passage. Mrs. Krentz' friend was also injured. Authorities have not released the extent of their injuries.UPDATE: It was a hit-and-run DUI. The suspect, Ramon Saucedo, 66, was arrested after fleeing the scene.UPDATE: The Krentz Family has notified Stand With Arizona that "Susan is in critical but stable condition at UMC (Tucson).

    Rep. King defends American workers against the "jobs they won't do" lies of the UFW and Stephen Colbert. Leaving aside the disastrous fiasco for Democrats that the hearing became, King delivers strong points that must be made - even pointing out how Cesar Chavez himself was AGAINST illegal immigration because of how it depressed wages for his workers. Unemployed Americans and their families need to remember on Nov. 2nd which politicians are forcing them to compete with a Third World labor market here at home, and vote accordingly. It's time to put the open borders crowd in Washington out of...

    "If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen." But she did NOT come here as an 'immigrant'. She came illegally, lived in public housing for years, collected welfare, even got $51k in disability. And still she is angry at America. This case is beyond depressing. And it underlines what many people see today: that in the old days, immigrants came to America to lend a hand to our growing nation. But far too many today merely come for a handout. And their arrogance and sense of entitlement is a symptom of the broken...

    Crack dealer, car thief, Social Security fraudster, ILLEGAL ALIEN. Yet he is 'making a living' suing hundreds of small business owners under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Alfredo Garcia, who became paralyzed after getting drunk and falling out of an avocado tree, goes around all day - every day - looking for the most minor violations of ADA (or just filing false claims) in order to extort cash. How does an illegal alien felon even have standing to sue American citizens? Why was he never deported? Why is he not deported now? God only knows. It is just another story...

    Abuse Of Power: Our misnamed Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against an Arizona sheriff at the top of the administration's enemies list. Prosecute border sheriffs and sue states but protect the Black Panthers? Gotcha. The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, the county itself and outspoken Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The suit alleges that the sheriff's office is in violation of civil rights laws by refusing for 17 months to fully cooperate with an investigation into police practices and jail operations. The federal probe itself deals with alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures,...

    PHOENIX -- For the first time in state history, Arizona is holding its primary elections in August. Experts predict between 20 and 25 percent of registered voters will go to the polls before they close at 7 p.m. Tuesday. They think the heat and humidity, which have put the Valley under an extreme heat warning, will keep some people home. "That certainly is going to discourage people from going to the polls," said Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell. News/Radio 92.3 KTAR's Jim Cross, out and about as the polls opened at 6 a.m., found illegal immigration and SB1070, the state's...
